Do you have to give your landlord access to the property when you're not in?

From what I remember you do, but they have to give you 24 hours notice?

We have inspections done every 6months and we are always out at the time but it's not our landlord that does these. It's the letting agency. It's written in our contact that we have to have inspections

No, you don't.

It's less than 24 hours and we won't be here angry

Unless it is an emergency they have to give you 24 hours notice if they want to access the property,
you don't have to be in when they come but usually unless it is an emergency usually you should be able to rearrange it for a convenient time for you to be in if you're not happy with them accessing the property when you're not home.

If you have not been given 24 hours notice and it is not and emergency tell the landlord that you will not be allowing access,
if I were you I would offer an alternative time/day when they can access the property.

No not unless it's an emergency.

No. You don't have to give any access at all unless an emergency.

24 hours notice is minimum and doesn't guarantee access.

Read your how to rent guide.

If the letting agency is making up the rules, tell them to get lost and write to the landlord telling him how crap the service he pays for is.
