    Property Inspection

    It is basically simple question. I am writing complain letter to estate agent. I do know landlord sister have done inspection along with employee of the estate agent. She was rude and took pics of our possessions and her sister shouted at my X-wife and X complaint to police. I would like to add to the issues.
    Is it legal? I mean landlord's sister can do the inspection? I have other main points, but would like to add this issue too. thanks.

    Not sure why you think landlord or his sister shouldn't inspect property, seems innocuous enough.

      Landlord or estate agent and his employee can do the inspection as landlord has authorised estate agent. But I believe what capacity landlord's sister can do the inspection as landlord done inspection some times and some times estate agent.
      But landlord sister has no official capacity or related to the house , so I just wonder.

        Not sure what you mean by "official capacity". A random estate agent employee asked to do an inspection does not have any different "official capacity"

        If you are concerned about photographs of your possessions, if they are just that, then it would not be appropriate,. However photographs of damage or of things likely to cause damage which happen to include possessions, or of required repairs would seem totally appropriate.

          Out of interest, did you get written notice of the inspection, and who let the sister in ?
          Fed up with nitpickers and rivet counters...

            Why did they shout or swear? You can report abuse.

            You can actually refuse entry but never really worth it. If I was leaving a property however and landlord wanted viewings I would refuse not my problem.

              mokka,

              Sounds a great idea. Likely attitude that will get you excluded from viewings anywhere else though, but that's OK.

                Not if you are intending to buy and the landlord is a slum landlord who deserves no favours

                  I can't disagree with that. I thought you were suggesting being disagreeable and unhelpful just for the sake of it.

                    In 10 years time if I asked your ex-landlord if you were a fair and reasonable person, what would they say?

                      Oh no. I would be fair. Good landlords deserve respect.

                            It was an old issue as I am compiling list of issues in my 4 years tenancy against the estate agent .
                            My estate agent refused my NTQ 3 months ago and finally I gave another NTQ and left the property with out looking for confirmation as I am on joint tenancy rolling. But he still insists I am liable for future rent etc as rest of tenants holding over.
                            My x-wife accepted inspection and estate agent employee and this lady (later found out sister of land lord) made every tenant uncomfortable , rude and shouted in front of my child who has ASD and can't tolerate loud voices/shouting. It was a night mare inspection. The door handle is broken, but this lady shouted at my x-wife saying it was deliberate.

                            I have valid complaints like dampness and mould and extractor fans never worked in bathrooms etc.. As I left the property but would like his response to my complaint list.

                              So you are in favour of being nice to slum landlords when leaving? ( albeit still following the law) I don’t think so. I agree to disagree.
