Landlord's Access for Inspection and Emergency

Landlord or Landlord's agents may enter the Premises at any time and without notice in the event of an emergency, Tenant's abandonment of the Premises, court order, or to perform a repair, replace an item, or clean, when such actions are necessitated by Tenant's failure, after fourteen (14) days' written notice from Landlord, to perform Tenant's basic obligations, as explained in Nevada Rev. Statutes Chapter 118A, Landlord and Tenant: Dwellings.

Landlord may also enter the Premises to inspect the Premises; make necessary or agreed repairs, decorations, alterations, or improvements; supply necessary or agreed services; or exhibit the dwelling unit to prospective or actual purchasers, mortgagees, tenants, workers, contractors, or others with a bona fide interest in inspecting the Premises.
