South Carolina vacation rental legality of owner entering property during rental period?

The primary rights and responsibilities of both parties are in the lease. Law enters into it only if there is no rental agreement.

Law is always a part of every contract---true, private agreements are private matters but the Court can, and does step in upon a lawsuit. Additionally, South Carolina has enacted a Landlord-Tenant Law that applies to almost all residential leases and the terms of this law also control your rights and duties as a tenant. For example, the law places an obligation of good faith upon both parties. I'm unsure about your rights to be left undisturbed, but sometimes landlord's have the right to enter upon the property, for instance, if something is broken, or perhaps, if it was written in the contact. Absent a lease, you should have some right to be left alone and enjoy "possession," and if not, to terminate the lease and sue for damages, but you have not given specific facts. I am not a South Carolina lawyer, but you should do some more digging, or ask a lawyer, if your situation is serious.
