Just moved into a house, and feel really anoyed at the moment.


only been living in the house 3 weeks and the neighbour who knows my landlord very well keeps phoning him and telling him things about us, not things we have done wrong just different things in general, like saying "BT have just turned up, have they asked u"


Then she called round and said that if BT need to come back and we arent there she could let them in coz she has a key!!!


Im so anoyed, not sure what i should do because we dont really wanna get on the bad side of her.


My question is, is there a law that says other people(except owner and agents) cant have the key for your rented home?


Surely its a breech of something?


Any ideas guys?


Thanks Cityguy

You are allowed to change the locks on the property if you feel that the security of the place has been compromised, and are within your rights not to give a copy to anyone else, including the landlord. The landlord may only enter the property with your permission during your tenancy; this goes doubly so for any 'neighbour'.


However, this is a last resort option, and you have to be genuinely worried for your safety/the safety of your possessions. The best thing for you to do at first is to contact the landlord, stating that it has come to your attention that a third party holds a key to the property and requesting that the key be surrended to you or him as you are worried about security. It is always best to keep things as amicable as possible when it comes to renting, and as I said above, changing the locks would be the last resort, but you would be within your rights to do so.


Click the scales if I've been useful! :)
