A: The standard NVRA lease form gives the landlord authorization to access the premises after giving the tenant written notice. If you gave the proper notice and the tenant is refusing to give you access to the premises to show the premises to possible future tenants, the tenant has breached the lease and you will have to seek a court order to require the tenant to give you access to the premises.
