Who will be able to get into my apartment and for what reasons? How much notice will I be provided?
Maintenance will have access to your apartment, but only when you request service. The only time we would make entry into your apartment without at least 24-hour notice is if there is an emergency either in or around your apartment. For example, if your downstairs neighbor is flooding, we may need to enter your apartment to make sure you don’t have any leaks.
