Last time I looked into this the landlord has to give 24 hours notice before
entering the property, regardless of reason.  I seem to remember a google search for
california landlord/tenant law brought up some interesting links.  This was some
years ago so laws may have changed.

You should be able to get them to test the line to their box.  One way to make sure
the problem isn't your inside wiring is to connect a phone at their box and see if
the static persists.  Most modern boxes have an RJ11 jack inside for testing
