Is there anything in the lease stating that a realtor (as opposed to the landlord) has the right to show the property without the tenant's presence?
If the lease does not specifically address this, then the tenant is only obligated to allow the landlord entry to show the premises. The tenant must allow the landlord entry after reasonable notice has been provided. PA statutes are silent as to what constitutes reasonable notice, but generally 24-48 hours advance notice is deemed reasonable; so for example, the landlord must state the date and time of the appointment - it cannot be an open ended request.
There is no statutory requirement that a tenant allow a third party such as a realtor entry-rather they can insist that the landlord be present. Consent cannot be unreasonably withheld and most courts consider it reasonable to require the landlord's presence.
