The landlord can only visit with giving at least 24 hours notice and at a reasonable time. They cannot also visit too often as that is a breach of quiet enjoyment. On top of that, they cannot breach the tenants bubble, and he could complain to the police about that

Customer
Thank you for your reply. I also spoke to the tenancy tribunal today and they also advised me exactly what you have advised me.
Customer
Oh and she is the property owner not the landlord. My friend is renting through an agent and they are the landlord/property manager

The property manager is the agent of the owner and the issue applies equally to the owner and the agent

Customer
No thanks
