A Texas notice to enter notifies a tenant that their landlord will need to enter their rental unit. The document generally informs the tenant of the date and time that the landlord will access the premises, the amount of notice the tenant is being given, and the reason that entry is required. State law doesn’t say anything about the tenant having the right to a notice period before the landlord’s entry. Therefore, any notice requirements will be dictated by the lease.

Although no state laws mention a notice period, it’s common practice to notify tenants in advance before accessing a rental property to maintain good lessor-lessee relationships.
