Please note that this is entirely just something I googled and glanced over, but I'd have though the Landlords and Tenants Act 1985 would apply, including Section 8.2:|
"The landlord, or a person authorised by him in writing, may at reasonable tinmes of the day, on giving 24 hours’ notice in writing to the tenant or occupier, enter premises to which this section applies for the purpose of viewing their state and condition."
As I say, just glancing at it so most likely of little use. No idea if that's even the current legislation, or where it covers.
