Do San Francisco landlords need to give tenants written notice before entering the apartment to make repairs?
Yes, according to the San Francisco Rent Board, tenants must be given at least 24-hours written notice before the landlord enters their apartment. If the written notice is mailed, it must be mailed at least six days prior to when the landlord will enter the apartment. However, in an emergency, written notice is not required.
The written notice should state the planned time and date of entry, the repairs to be done and the expected amount of time repairs will take.
