Our landlord who lives abroad is managing the property himself i.e. by his daughter. He usually announces his own visits (not the regular property inspections) by writing an email and saying: I will be in your area on …and would like to meet you. He never gives a time and if you are busy when he arrives he reacts disappointed and angry. Last time I was on the phone and my little daughter was running around naked around her lower body, means I was not prepared to welcome someone. I said ‘Hello” while being on the phone and trying to handle my daughter. He later complained that I was not friendly enough etc.. Am I a supermarket or a pub you can enter whenever it pleases you to do so? I don’t have the time to wait the entire day for someone who would like to say “Hello” and having a cup of tea with me. The only other opportunity I have is to hide what I don’t want as I am a grown up person. We also pay a horrendous rent for the house and have – I think- the right of quite enjoyment. His daughter is nice but has obviously no idea of tenant rights as she never ask for property visits but gives you date and time frame and if you are not at home she enters your house with her own key and without your permission. Has anyone an idea what I could do to make them very clear that this is not the way how we would like to be treated as tenants? Thank you!

Hi Jane
Its worth looking through your Tenancy Agreement as there is normally clauses regarding visits to the property. Would then be worth putting it in writing to the Landlord that he/she needs to comply with the clause.
Hope that this helps.
