Minnesota Landlord Notice to Enter Form

Updated July 10, 2024

A Minnesota landlord’s notice to enter gives the landlord the ability to enter a property occupied by a tenant or tenants. The landlord may only enter for reasonable purposes, and may only do so after providing “reasonable notice” of no less than 24 hours in advance. The notice must also specify a time and window of entry, which may only be between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. The parties may agree otherwise if desired.

Laws Minn. Stat. § 504B.211

Notice can be used for

  • Showing the unit to prospective tenants, prospective buyers or insurance representatives;
  • Performing maintenance;
  • Allowing safety inspections by government officials;
  • Addressing disturbances caused by the tenant;
  • Addressing a landlord’s reasonable suspicion that a tenant is violating the terms of a lease;
  • Housekeeping work, in senior housing complexes;
  • Verifying whether a tenant has vacated the unit; and
  • Other reasonable purposes.
