Good afternoon. I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with a tenant. A landlord can evict a tenant when they 1) fail to pay rent and fail to cure and pay 2) are in violation of a lease agreement and fail to correct it or 3) if they hold over, after their lease ends. The proper notice needs to be given first and if they still remain, the landlord can then proceed through the court, to evict them.

Do I have legal rights to enter their resident if given a 24 hour notice?

Great to hear back from you. Yes you do have a legal right to enter with a 24 hour notice given. The tenant should be given a basis for your entry and they get be present if they like
