Private entities can't violate your rights to free speech. Exceptions would include things like the government is using a Facebook page and then blocks you from that Facebook page. Unless you're more specific, what you have described does not sound like a free speech violation.
It doesn’t say in our lease that they can come in without notice except in an emergency or when maintenance is scheduled.
