We’ve been renting our flat for 3 years & are leaving in February. The landlord has been pretty useless with repairs, damp, broken in garage etc. Think I’ve only met him twice!
Since giving notice the property has been advertised & viewings booked. My husband works nights therefore sleeps during the day. The landlord was aware of this when we moved in. My husband has been getting up in the middle of the day for viewings for the last 2 weeks. Now the lack of sleep is getting to him. The estate agents are struggling to rent it due to damp issues which we have been complaining about every winter. The landlord has visited twice in the last week to look at the damp. He now wants to do work on it tomorrow at 9:30am. I’ve told him it’s to early my husband won’t get any sleep. I’ve said after 2pm during the week or anytime Friday or Saturday but the landlord said no. I even offered to leave the property a week early but still pay full rent & he do all work when we’re gone. He said no.
He said if we refuse entry to property tomorrow he will charge us for his costs.
Are we being unreasonable with asking for specific times? Do we have any rights?
Thanks in advance
