How Much Notice Does A Real Estate Agent Or Landlord Have To Provide Before Visiting A Rental Property?
We often hear stories from tenants who have had experiences in the past of unannounced or frequent visits from their agent or landlord. Unfortunately, especially when a landlord lives nearby to their investment property, the landlord can feel too comfortable simply "dropping past" the property to check on something, complete a minor repair, and so on.
There are very clear notice periods required in order for a landlord, real estate agent or any other party acting on their behalf to enter a rental property.
Investors of course want to minimise vacancy in their rental properties. However many investors tend to wish to hold out for a higher rental return rather than fill their property (and start receiving income!) more quickly.
In this post we'll run through a real example of the outcome of holding out for higher rent, based on a property in the Newcastle area which we had proposed to manage. Details of circumstances are contained in the text, but if you want to cut to the chase, you can scroll to the table at the end of the post.
Most investors and tenants have heard of people being put on a tenancy database or placed on a "blacklist". Often there is little understanding around how these lists work, the circumstances under which a tenant can be added to the list, and how someone can be removed from the list.
