Good afternoon. Yes, your daughter absolutely has rights here under California Civil Code Section 1954. Your daughter's rights under this Code Section are set forth at http://www.housing

"California Civil Code Section 1954

A. A landlord may enter the dwelling unit only in the following cases:
1. In case of emergency.
2. To make necessary or agreed repairs, decorations, alterations or improvements, supply
necessary or agreed services, or exhibit the dwelling unit to prospective or actual
purchasers, mortgagees, tenants, workers, or contractors
or to make an inspection
pursuant to subdivision (f) of Section 1950.5.
3. When the tenant has abandoned or surrendered the premises.
4. Pursuant to court order.
B. Except in cases of emergency or when the tenant has abandoned or surrendered the premises,
entry may not be made during other than normal business hours unless the tenant consents to
an entry during other than normal business hours at the time of entry.
C. The landlord may not abuse the right of access or use it to harass the tenant.
D. 1. Except as provided in subdivision (e), or as provided in paragraph (2) or (3), the landlord
shall give the tenant reasonable notice in writing of his or her intent to enter and enter
only during normal business hours. The notice shall include the date, approximate time,
and purpose of the entry. The notice may be personally delivered to the tenant, left with
someone of a suitable age and discretion at the premises, or, left on, near, or under the
usual entry door of the premises in a manner in which a reasonable person would
discover the notice. Twenty-four hours shall be presumed to be reasonable notice in
absence of evidence to the contrary. The notice may be mailed to the tenant. Mailing of
the notice at least six days prior to an intended entry is presumed reasonable notice in
the absence of evidence to the contrary.
2. If the purpose of the entry is to exhibit the dwelling unit to prospective or actual
purchasers, the notice may be given orally, in person or by telephone, if the landlord or
his or her agent has notified the tenant in writing within 120 days of the oral notice that
the property is for sale and that the landlord or agent may contact the tenant orally for
the purpose described above. Twenty-four hours is presumed reasonable notice in the
absence of evidence to the contrary. The notice shall include the date, approximate time,
and purpose of the entry. At the time of entry, the landlord or agent shall leave written
evidence of the entry inside the unit.
3. The tenant and the landlord may agree orally to an entry to make agreed repairs or
supply agreed services. The agreement shall include the date and approximate time of
the entry, which shall be within one week of the agreement. In this case, the landlord is
not required to provide the tenant a written notice.
