Thank you question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
He is entitled to reasonable access which would include showing prospective buyers the property.
However, he cannot just turn up whenever it suits him. He should not be gaining entry without giving her no less than 48 hours notice by received means. Also, she should have the right to refuse the dates offered and suggest a more convenient time. Generally speaking, the landlord is under an obligation to offer three separate dates and if those are all refused then he can gain entry. Obviously some tenants are unreasonable and would never allow access so there has to be provision . Most tenants are reasonable though and just don't want a viewing when they have a dinner party .
Can I clarify anything ?
