We signed a 12 months in August.
Recently landlord (letting agency) sent us an email saying they need to start advertising the property on the market for the next academic year, followed by another two emails informing us about arranged viewings.
Obviously we do not want to have viewings for next 9 months of the contract. We live in this house.
What are our rights? I understand we do not have to agree for any viewings, and landlord cannot attend the property without our permission. Is it correct? Is it subject to specific term of contract or is it general rule?
Do we have to agree for viewings close to end of contract? For example one moth? Is there any specific time period before end of contract we have to agree for viewings? Is it subject to specific terms of the contract, or general rules?
Am I right it is criminal offense, trespassing, if landlord will attend the property without our permission?
Can we change the locks in the property without letting landlord know?
Could someone send some links to law acts on the issue?
Thank you in advance
