I just need to ask your advice for a matter that really really annoys me.
We are living in a newly built house since April 2015. We had to leave our old house as the owner died and the house was going to be sold.
So we were in a bit of a hurry to find something new to live. And that is the reason why we had to sign the contract as it was.
It now turns out that the agents properly inform us about a week before the appointment they will come to inspect the property.
That is okay by me as long as I am around. But they tell us in their notice that we do not have to be around when they are coming as they will let themselves in and that due to a lot of appointments of this kind it is impossible to choose another date.
I have no problem whatsoever with them inspecting our “home” as this is obviously the law. But I have a huge problem with people I don’t know sniffing around in our stuff while we are not present.
These people do not identify themselves, just tell us they are from “Blabla Agency” and expect to be let in. That last woman even refused to give me her name although I asked for it several times.
Do we have to let this happen? Can everybody with a key walk in the house we pay a lot of money for every month whithout our presence and put our privacy ad absurdum?
Thanks for any advice!
