    Unreasonable access requests after being served with S21 notice

    The letting agent has served me with a S21 notice due to the house im renting being sold. The agent who is selling the house is still demanding that i let more viewers/potential purchases view the house which i am refusing due to being told to leave. Let them view once i have moved out i said as i have had a constant stream of viewers over the last 12 months. Am i correctto do this?

    Yes and no.

    If it is imperative you receive a good reference from the landlord, then
    allow visits at "Times of your choosing" Weekends with 2 days notice.
    You don't have to allow ANY viewings, as it's your property until you
    leave.

    If you are not fussed about references, then you are entitled to say,
    " As i have been subject to constant annoyances and my peacefull
    enjoyment has been compromised, and you are now ordering me to
    leave, no further viewings will be allowed.
    This also means you cannot enter my abode without my permission."

    So up to you, but you are entitled to state you will not allow
    viewings.

    R.a.M.

      Well the letting agent are pretty rubbish amyway and althoughi have always paid my rent on time etc they were useless when i have any dealings with them. They stated to me that due to being issued the S21 then i will be required to move out on such and such a date which we all know is rubbish.

        Yes but if you don't, you could be liable for your landlords court fees/legal costs.

            Do you know why you've been issued with the S21? ie, is it in response to anything you've done, not done, etc; or is it entirely unrelated to you and just due to the landlord's plans for the property? (not that it makes any legal difference to the answer to your query)

              The house has been sold, its been for sale the 18 months i have lived there. I have been a model tenant, allowed veiwings for the potential sellers the whole time i have been there but now just want to be left to find a new place and enjoy the property before i haveto move. The estate agent wants more viewings even though i have been given notice.

                If it has been sold, why the need for more viewings?

                  If it really has been sold and someone is planning on moving in/doing work you may be in a very strong negotiating position:

                  S21 does not end the tenancy nor oblige the tenant to leave: You are quite within your rights to wait until landlord gets court order & then sends bailiffs round...

                  Perhaps the landlord (I'd not bother asking agent..) really wants/needs you out by some sate then perhaps he'll refund some rent & give you a good written reference now...

                  Others may think such an approach unfair... However anyone selling a property promising vacant possession when that ain;t certain needs a new brain..

                  Cheers!

                    Yes, I'd tell the agent that if the LL wants to sell the property with vacant possession, intimidating you into more viewings will hardly incetivise you to be nice about leaving according to timescale he wishes to set to complete the sale, and only ensure you exercise your rights to the full, making it hard for him to achieve......

                    Spell this out to the agent. The LL and the A nbeed YOUR cooperation if they want a smooth sale with vacant possession.

                    You are also within your rights to change the locks, so long as you keep the old lock and refit it when you vacate the property.
