Can you have viewings on a rental property before the two months

This answer was rated:

Can you have viewings on a rental property before the two months notice has been given to the tenant?



Thanks for your question.


Is there a clause in the tenancy agreement to allow the landlord/agent to enter and view the property with prospective purchaser/tenants? It may say only in the last two months and upon reasonable notice and at reasonable times.


Kind regards,

There is, but i wasn't sure whether this was legal as previous agreements have stated 'within' the last two months.




Hello Carl,


Does the tenancy agreement afford your landlord the right to enter at any time for these purposes, does it refer to reasonable times/notices?


Essentially you have the right to quiet enjoyment of the property until the end of the term. If there is right in your agreement to allow the landlord the right to enter at any time then your right to quiet enjoyment would probably override this.

If there is a right to permit at reasonable times and upon reasonable notice then it is best to take a pragmatic view and state that you will permit viewing but only with hours of "x" to "y" and not on certain days, tailor to your requirements and be firm with the landlord. It's in his interest not select inconvenient times since you can say you cannot guarantee the property will be in the best state for viewings.


In the end, it's better to maintain an amicable relationship with the landlord so that he does not become aggressively adversarial on other issues.


Kind regards,
