Re: Landlord wants me to move 4 days early .. and.. by LL (CA) on September 24, 2017 @19:14

You are under no obligation to move early. If it suits you, maybe you can negotiate with your landlord to be reimbursed for the inconvenience of moving early, but you don't have to move until the date stated in your lease.

As for the landlord entering or having an agent enter to perform non-emergency works, you can refuse. If it was an issue such as a burst pipe or faulty wiring, the landlord could enter immediately to rectify the problem, but I doubt very much that a court would uphold a landlord's right to enter just to make cosmetic changes, especially ones that in no way benefit the current tenant (you).

It certainly sounds like your landlord is preparing the place for a new tenant or to put the property on the market but it should not interfere with your quiet enjoyment.

Communicate calmly with your landlord and let them know your thoughts on the matter. Follow up all phone calls with a letter reiterating what was discussed. If you get no agreement with your landlord, consult an attorney who handles landlord/tenant issues. A strongly worded letter from an attorney may make this pushy landlord back off.
