A South Dakota 24-hour notice to enter is a document delivered to a tenant to inform them that their landlord plans to enter the property. The completed notice will give the reason for the landlord needing access, the date of the notice, and the date and time they will enter the tenant’s rental unit. The tenant cannot refuse entry unless the landlord’s request is unreasonable.

Emergency Access (§ 43-32-32) – If there is an emergency or if it wouldn’t be practical for notice to be given, the landlord can enter the property without notice.


The landlord must give tenants “reasonable notice” before entering a rental property, which cannot be less than 24 hours before entry (except in emergencies). The notice must be in writing and state the time and date the landlord will require access.
