A Nebraska 24-hour notice to enter is a document used to inform a tenant that their landlord needs to enter their residence. Nebraska law requires the notice to be provided to tenants in writing and specify the date of entry, anticipated arrival time, and reason the landlord needs to enter the dwelling (e.g., routine maintenance, inspections). The notice should also include the landlord’s contact information to make it easy to communicate and reschedule if necessary.
Landlords can enter the rental property at reasonable times of the day by giving the tenant at least 24 hours’ notice of their intent to enter. A tenant may not unreasonably deny the request to enter if the landlord needs to:
- Inspect the rental property;
- Conduct repairs or supply services; or
- Allow the rental property to be viewed by potential or actual tenants, contractors, workers, mortgagees, or purchasers.
Statute: Neb. Rev. Stat. § 76-1423
The landlord has the right to enter the property without notice or the tenant’s consent in the following situations:
- The landlord receives a court order;
- The tenant abandons the property or gives up possession;
- The tenant is away for more than seven (7) days, in which case the landlord may enter when reasonably necessary.
