T inspection by Ted on September 17, 2021 @09:21

                              
I have a T who does not respond to my communication. I'd like to perform a yearly inspection but he has not responded to any of my emails or texts that we are going to inspect the property this Saturday. Can I enter the property or perhaps make one last attempt to communicate by posting a notice on the entry door.

Posting a notice on the Ts front door should have been your FIRST attempt. And you should take a picture of it on the door before you leave. You cannot go in just yet, no matter how bad you want to. You should cover ALL your bases about entering a rental.

If I were you, I would postpone the date of entering for 1 week. Then text, email, and CALL them about the date and time you will be there. THEN, ALSO, send a copy of your notice by both regular and certified mail, and post that same notice on their front door. Do all this no LATER than this coming Monday, to give the mailings time for them to arrive at the Ts address. Then be SURE you are at the property EXACTLY when you said you will be.

If you can get in, GREAT! If the T is there and won't let you in,or has changed the locks, you have 3 choices------forget about performing the inspection, go to court to get a judge to grant you access, or give them a notice of non-renewal of the lease, which should say the actual date they are expected to be gone. ( if a T can play hardball, so can you )
