I have no idea if this belongs in this section but I thought it fit here best!
I'm hoping someone with some knowledge on rentals etc could weigh in - we had our routine inspection on Monday, they gave us notice and all was fine, then today at about 2:30pm my fiance got a call saying the OWNER of our property would be stopping by in under 4 hours to repair something. Cue me freaking because my toddler has made it a little messier than Monday!
I looked up our RTA booklet and it says they need to give us a minimum 24hours before entry on the specific repair they need to do (not an emergency) so DF called them and said its not good enough and they need more notice. Real estate said they'd call the owner and cancel, it was just that they were coming up here anyways and thought they'd do it then..
But I thought the whole point in having a real estate is so they organise things for you? I wouldn't have rented this home even though I love it, if I knew how hands on the owners were!
My question is - is the owner even allowed on the premises to do repairs? Even with the proper notice given? They aren't sure if they're even qualified to perform them (DF works in the electrician business so he knows you need to be qualified for everything)
It just seems a bit dodgy!
