This Week's Real Estate Story
- Tenant Won't Allow Showings
I had a listing on a duplex in Oakland CA and one of the tenants told me that we had no right to show the apartment. They had someone there to tell us that we couldn't show it. I called the owner to reason with the tenant, and we were let in. From then on, I had to call the tenant at least 24 hrs. in advance and post a 24 hrs notice on his door to be sure the tenant knew, and to protect ourselves from a harassment lawsuit.
Tenants seem to forget that they are renting. The owner has rented them the property but the owner still owns the property and one of his rights is to show the property to potential buyers. Granted, the tenant needs notice and showings have to be in reasonable hours of the day.
Now I'm representing a buyer in Oakland CA, and we want to see a property. The tenant is not allowing anyone to see the house. The listing agent told me, "I'll let you know when you can see it." This is another reason why it's hard for buyers right now.
