Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello again and thanks for requesting me..
Is there anything in the lease that says when she can start showing it or puts limits on the time before expiration?
Or is that clause the only part of the lease related to her access rights?
Ok, that is exactly the clause I was thinking of... the quiet use and enjoyment clause.. If you want my straightforward opinion... the landlord can legally show the apartment as long as they have give you at least 24 hours notice prior to any entry and it is during normal business hours.
NY doesn't have any state statutes regarding access rights of landlords so it depends on the lease and common law, which requires 24 hours advance notice and only during normal business hours..
But they don't have the right to breach the lease and your rights to quiet use and enjoyment or "sole use and possession" so it gets into a grey area here..
If they show it once or twice a week, that is probably not a breach, but more than that, you can probably refuse as it would be an unreasonable infringement on your usage rights.
But you can't ban them entirely since they specifically reserved that right in the lease..
Thank you very much for the positive rating and generous bonus, it is greatly appreciated!
