Hi, I am leaving my current rented property as of 1st May. I have informed the landlord etc and everything is fine.

 

My landlord called me yesterday and told me that he is advertising the flat in our local paper tomorrow, so I am assuming that some people will be viewing the flat tomorrow. He is putting on the ad that the property is avilable from 1st May. Does this mean that I would have to vacate the property on the 31st april or do I have until the 1st of may? Also, the fact that he is showing the flat before I move out doesn't bother me as such, but a few people have said to me he shouldn't be allowed to do this. I've had a look through my lease but couldn't find any information on either.

 

Any help would be apprecaited, thanks

He's allowed to conduct viewings, but only if he gives you 24hrs notice each time, and gets your permission to do so. If it is inconvenient to you, you have the right to refuse and ask to reschedule, but it is best to be as accommodating as you can at this point. It seems that most sourings of tenant/landlord relationships happens near the termination of the tenancy, so you want to keep your relationship with the landlord affable where possible.

I agree, when we moved out of our last rented property we were as accomadating to the landlord as we could be regarding viewings, becuase we thought that if we "upset" him he may find petty things wrong with the property and withhold parts of our deposit.

 

I say, as long as the landlord has been a good landlord, do everything you can to help him out.

Yeah, I am going to be as co-operative as possible as he has been a good landlord. He practically sung my praises to the letting agency I am going with after this. They said he gave me a glowing reference. He also told me I had been an ideal tenant which was nice.

Sounds good to me, worth doing him the odd favour and putting yourself out then. It hasn't made you reconsider moving has it? :D :D :D

:D :D I have to admit after I'd given the place a thorough clean yesterday and seen the ad in the paper today I did feel a bit protective that my flat was being given to someone else :( and the fact I am moving cities is also scaring me a bit but I've been here for 2 and a half years so it does feel like time to move on :)
