Is there any way to tell if my landlord is going into my apartment without me knowing? I am genuinely concerned.

This may sound odd, but a small piece of clear rape on the outside of your front door (preferably NOT at eye level) should do the trick! Most people won't think to look for tape. Also, you may want to investment in home security cameras. Hope this helps!

After using the tape or paper in the door trick to confirm someine is entering, consult with your landlord and inquire if the locks where changed before you moved in. (it would be REAL spooky if it was a past tenant) Ask if the landlord entered your apartment.
-
You may find there is a reaonsable explaination.
-
if response is unstatisfactory, advise landlord you will be installing remote hidden cameras. Very often the thought there is veriifcation or people watching will end the transgression. Then head to Cosco and buy the wireless camera(s).
-
You may want to visit the X10 website and find out about all the 'spy' stuff that is available and will connect to your cell. Be careful, it is easy to become the 'spooky' person who has all the spying stuff.

Hidden cameras, ask a neighbor to watch out. Or you can simply ask your landlord if he has ever entered your apartment for anything.

Hannah, read your lease agreement. Does it state anywhere that they can have access to the unit at any time? Also what are the terms regarding locks? You may want to have all your locks changed. If it is permitted in the lease agreement.

Best of Luck;

You could purcase a security camera kit that allows you to monitor it via your pc or your cell phone. Or, you could change the locks so that the landlord cannot enter without notifying you.
