Good day. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

The lease does not specify that you must participate in the improvements. If they want things off the walls and out of closets then it is no the landlord to do it and be responsible for any damage to your personal property.

what is reasonable if the landlord wants to have a real estate agent hold open houses and they want us to leave for that and each time they want to show it?
Expert:  Loren replied 9 months ago.

No more than once every other day for showings. Once every other week for open houses.
