In Washington State, the amount of notice required before a landlord can enter the rental property varies depending on the reason. The Landlord Tenant Act requires a landlord to give a 48-hour notice if the owner wants to enter for maintenance or an inspection. A 24-hour notice is required if the landlord wants to show the property to a prospective tenant or buyer. The owner can enter without notice only in the case of an emergency. The tenant has the “reasonable” right to say no to a proposed time of entry.
