Neither parents nor guarantors may have access to the apartment without written consent from the tenant. Per the Virginia Landlord and Tenant Law, "Tenant" means a person entitled only under the terms of a rental agreement to occupy a dwelling unit to the exclusion of others and shall include roomer. Tenant shall not include (1) an authorized occupant (2) a guest or invitee, or (3) any person who guarantees or co-signs the payment of the financial obligations of a rental agreement but has no right to occupy a dwelling unit.
Therefore, Guarantors may not conduct business on behalf of the resident or occupant, request maintenance service, be issued a parking sticker or permanent guest pass, or be given access to the dwelling unit without the written consent of the resident(s).
