Thank you for your question.

She is supposed to give the tenant 24 hours advance notice that she intends to enter the property. If this is a difficult tenant, a written notice would be advisable.

I hope this inforation is helpful.

BTW, she might benefit from having a copy of this, available at most County Law Libraries or on line.
