A tenant, on a 1-year lease, moves out 1 month before his lease

Customer Question

A tenant, on a 1-year lease, moves out 1 month before his lease expires. He pays for the entire month, so the unit is basically empty. He wants to wait till the end of the month to have a final walk-through, turnover keys, etc., which is fine. Can I, the landlord, go into the unit before then to look take measurements of the windows and assess necessary repairs?
