    Landlord access rights question

    Hi there

    We are newish landlords on a steep steep learning curve!! We've read Lawcruncher's guide on landlords rights of access, which is really helpful, but we are still unsure as our tenant isn't blocking our access, but just not responding to calls/texts/notes. We need access this week to get a survey done. We advised them last week this would need done at some point the following week, and advised them at the weekend that it would be in tuesday. This was done by text, which is how we normallly sort things out (very amicably). There was no reply, so we popped a note through the door this morning, and left a voicemail tonight when we phoned. A neighbour of the propertyhas said that one of the tenants have moved away, and their partner is staying to finish work, then will be moving also, but as yet they haven't gave notice and the rent is being paid. We've checked our tenancy agreement and it says:
    The tenant will permit the landlord and his agents, with or without workmen and others, with all necessary appliances at all reasonable times, to enter upon and examine the condition of the property, fixtures and effects and to execute repairs to the same.

    Sorry for the long post, but can't seem to get a definitive answer in much of the info available.
    Our question therefore is, can we enter the property tomorrow morning with the surveyor? Thanks muchly for taking the time to read this.
