      It’s their right to refuse viewings actually whether you like it or not considering they are still paying to be there.

      Also, and more to the point, if the landlord has been nasty to the said tenants for no reason such as refusing to repair the property then even more so which is my main point. This is excluding good landlords, albeit still within tenants right to refuse viewings.

        On the other hand, chances are the tenant has agreed to allow them in the tenancy agreement.

        Possibly better to allow the viewings and help prospective tenants see the issues?

        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          And it's a landlord's right to refuse to take on problem tenants.

            It is not a problem tenant. It is their legal right. It is only a problem for you because it delays the possibility of a new paying tenant doesn’t make it wrong in general that’s your prerogative.

              More likely better to report the issues to the environmental department after giving the landlord two weeks notice in writing. The thing is with a slum landlord people don’t incase the landlord gives 2 months notice instead. It’s a gamble.

              A departing tenant won’t be bothered about new tenants.

              Also, if there is a clause in the tenants agreement for entry to allow viewings that’s actually illegal because end of the day it would be forced entry if they refuse. I’d be interested to see the law that states landlords have the right.

                Sounds enough like it for me.

                It would be enough for a big from most competent landlords selecting a tenant.

                  There are no circumstances in a tenancy where a tenant can give two weeks notice and for it to be valid.

                  Also, if there is a clause in the tenants agreement for entry to allow viewings that’s actually illegal because end of the day it would be forced entry if they refuse. I’d be interested to see the law that states landlords have the right.
                  Of course a clause allowing viewings isn't "illegal".
                  It would be a breach of contract if the tenant signed made such an agreement and then didn't honour it.
                  The landlord couldn't force entry to do a viewing, but they could, theoretically at least, get a court to order the tenant to comply.
                  The cost and effort wouldn't be worth it, but doesn't make it OK.

                    The two weeks notice I’m referring to is the recommended time the council asks of the tenant before they look at any issues at the house/flat to show the tenant has asked the landlord first to sort any issues out.

                    It does make it ok if the landlord treated the tenant badly. Cause and effect.

                      Your opinion. Not from the tenants perspective.

                        True enough, but in the current market the balance of power is on the side of the landlord, there are far more tenants than properties to let and in that universe, opinions count for not much. The gift of a home is totally based on the ' opinion ' of the landlord, if they feel at all uneasy, for any reason, then the answer is a big fat no, right or wrong..... that is the current reality that prospective tenants inhabit.

                          I've got a waiting list of tenants for most of my properties.

                          If I list a property to rent, I pull the ad after 50 enquiries.

                            All the more to buy once notice is given on that judgement.

                              I can believe it.

                              Anyway, apologies to the original poster for hijacking your thread somewhat.

                                Good.

                                Then stop posting bad advice that won't help the original poster.
