    I've been in heaps of places that were being sold.

    I think once a week or fortnight they came through. They never hung around for to long. I just sat in the lounge room. It's a pain but its life when you rent.

    We just sold a rented home at auction on the weekend - we had 98 buyers through in 4 weeks - the tenants would have hated us coming in the house 98 times! we actually only came through 7 times in the 4 weeks doing open houses

    As I said the OP has the right to be there but a lot of tenants feel uncomfortable so we advise them to sit outside or go for a walk after they let us in and come back to let us out!

    OP talk to your agent about what your comfortable with
    But the tenant only has to offer up 2 days a week, right? So if the agent couldn't organise all private inspections on those 2 days the tenant has the right to say no to all other inspections?

    This happened to us not long ago however he ended up taking it off the market after not getting the interest he wanted
    We were pretty flexible with the times they wanted to show people through. We had 2 open houses and the realtor even showed people through at 6pm!! This was prearranged and I told him that we would be having dinner at that time, so the people looking through looked pretty awkward while the kids and I were at the dinner table
    We got pretty jack of it soon enough though and asked for a rent reduction while it was on the market due to the inconvenience of it all. End result was we paid normal rent for the rest of the lease (a couple of months) on the agreement that we get a new 12 month lease with no rent increase
    Good luck

    Our landlords have split so id say they are pretty desperate to sell. I wonder what the market is like in Adelaide atm....anyone in the know?

    Where abouts are you SoThisIsLove? I have been watching sales in the southern area for the last 5 or so months and depending on where you are, they seem to be selling fairly quickly, depending on the price obviously but I imagine if the owners have split they will be open to offers. Places in Seaford/Morphett Vale/Reynella/Happy Valley/Woodcroft seem to be fast.

    From a tenants perspective it's better to be present for all inspections.

    Open houses only benefit the agent. Having less people in the house at one time is the way to go. At least you can watch their every movement.
    I disagree (and yes, I work in real estate). Two open homes are way more efficient than having people through in dribs and drabs all through the week. At least with two inspections you can work around it and plan your week.

    I'm a home owner now (thank god!!), but I used to rent and have had an apartment I was renting sold while I was there. I just made sure the apartment was immaculate and no valuables visible. It was easier to be a good tenant than make life difficult for the agent.

    I've been on both ends, and difficult tenants are FRIGGIN ANNOYING to deal with. Please, do yourself a favour and don't be a difficult one.

    The regulations state the tenant must allow prospective buyers to view the home , the 1 time we had to go to tribunal was when a tenant only requested 8pm once a week private showings on a Monday night - which was not ideal for most buyers - the tribunal stated he had to give us 2 x 1 hour blocks - one on a Saturday at a reasonable time and one other night during the week , which was fine - we did 2 open houses - every other tenant we have ever had has been really good about it ( as have we trying to accommodate them)

    I doubt tribunal would agree to private inspections only twice a week - as you wouldn't be able to do your job properly by not getting enough people through? Again this is Sydney and our market is very strong , we easily average 20 buyers per open so not sure if other areas are this busy !

    I wont be a difficult tenant. Our relationship with any landlord should be one of mutual respect so i always endeavour to do the right thing.

    I just dont want it to cause too much stress by having people rocking up all the time and causing major inconvinience. Im dealing with enough stress atm as it is.

    Wasnt sure what to expect but now i can try and meet the agent somewhere in the middle hopefully :-)
