Can a Landlord Enter Without Permission in West Virginia?

Yes, a West Virginia landlord is able to enter their tenant’s unit without permission by default due to the state’s lack of statutory entry standards. As such, tenants who wish to establish a right to privacy will need to establish a written entry standard in their lease or a separate agreement. This standard should outline how much notice a landlord must provide in advance of entry, as well as the reasons they may justifiably request entry.
