Does anyone knows about the law here in TN?

I requested some weatherstrips for my apt door and I told the mngt I would put them in. After I came back from gym today I saw some used(!) weatherstrips laying on my floor together with a note. The guy checked all my window weatherstrips too and they are fine. The weatherstrips on the floor arethe replacement one which I can put in.

Replacing used one with used ones?

I am not counting on the intelligence of a maintenance guy, but entering my apt without my permission and while I am not home that pi..ed me off.

Can they enter your apt whenever they want?

Thx

You're supposed to get 24 hours notice.

If you requested manintenance, then that is permission to go in and fix it. A complex may not have the abilitly to notify you and have a person there to fix something 24 hours later. If the complex is coming in for an unscedualed service or check, that is when you are given a 24 hours notice. Focus on the fact that the service you requested was repaired in a short time.

Would you request service and then refuse permission to enter to do exactly that? Of course not. As Shane says, legally your request for service simultaneously acts as granting permission to enter.

24hrs notice is only required when THEY are scheduling the visit, such as when they are showing the unit to future tenants or something like that. And they are only required to give advance notice when it is feasible and reasonable to do so. For example if they discover a major leak and they need to get into your unit to stop it from doing major structural and material damage, they may do so without stopping to ask your permission.
