RE: Landlord access to property at (print your address)
Dear (print the name of landlord):
I am writing to inform you of the law regarding landlord access. Pursuant to title 9, chapter 137, section 4460 of the Vermont state statutes, a landlord may enter the unit with the tenant's consent. Without consent, a landlord can enter the unit between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM with no less than 48 hours’ notice to:
- inspect the premises;
- make necessary or agreed repairs, alterations, or improvements;
- supply agreed services; or
- show the unit to prospective or actual purchasers, mortgagees, tenants, workers or contractors.
A landlord can only enter the unit without consent or notice when there is a "reasonable belief that there is imminent danger to any person or property."
I thank you in advance for complying with the law.
Signed: (sign your name)
