Hi,

Just recieved a letter this morning stating that a letting management company have now taken over looking after this property on behalf of my landlord. And all rent has to be paid to them.

They have stated that they are to come and Inspect the property on wednesday afternoon and have stated that if that is not convienent for me they will carry out the inspection by using their management access keys to the property.

 

Can they legally just turn up and enter the property withoput me being present ?

 

Quick response would be good as need to sort this out quick as I work away often

Anything said is my opinion and how I understand the law, always consult professional legal advice before taking something to court.

Until you are notified by the LANDLORD, ignore the management company (other than below). They could be anybody - If I sent you a letter saying 'send your rent to me', would you?

 

However, the agency DO NOT have a right to enter the property without your express permission - google 'quiet enjoyment'. Write to them (1st class signed for) and tell them that they may not enter the property unacompanied, but if they wish to telephone you on such and such a date you will be happy to let them view the property at your mutual convenience subject to the landlord onfirming their appointment.

What access rights does the landlord have?

 

The landlord or agent has the legal right to enter the property at reasonable times of day to carry out the repairs for which the landlord is responsible and to inspect the condition and state of the repair of the property. The Landlord must give 24 hours’ notice in writing of an inspection.

 

Quiet Enjoyment

 

The tenant has the legal right to live in the property as his or her home. The Landlord must ask the tenant’s permission before entering the premises.

 

Should these responsibilities and rights be included in the tenancy agreement?

 

Statutory responsibilities and rights will apply to you and the tenant even if they are not included in the tenancy agreement.

They do have to give you at least 24/48 hours notice of a inspection.

 

But

 

It has to be convenient to you the tenant and Not the landlord or letting management,you can say No to them.

 

You are in your rights to Change the locks to your own making sure you cause no damage and replace the locks to the original one's when the tenancy ends.

 

You have a right of privacy and you can stop strangers going around your home when your not in..

Please use the quote system, So everyone will know what your referring too, thank you ...
