    Yes, it's allowed, though in my many years of renting it's thankfully never happened to me.

    That's very petty about the 2 weeds!

Is this allowed? We had no idea and were totally shocked. My Ds was only 2weeks at the time and they complained because there were 2 weeds in the garden bed. I'm sorry, but we're first time parents with a newborn, the weeds can wait. The rest of the house was immaculate.

    I had an owner who use to tag along with his grandkids to inspections and unfortunately it's allowed. Thankfully I only lived in that house for 6 months.

    They should have to state on the entry notice exactly who will be entering.

    If you are renting through RE the letter of inspection notice should have 'who will be attending'.

    I spoke to the real estate agent before close of business and she said that the landlords think we have done it maliciously as they are thinking of selling the property I'm gobsmacked! I told the real estate we will just replace them if it's going to be such a drama. We just thought we were doing the right thing at the time.

    Oh you plant murderer you! Now the house will never sell without those shrubs!! Haha Seriously.. You should sprinkle confetti on the lawn & put a tacky old table & chairs out the front... Then you can watch the 'owners' drive by & wave!

    OP it does sound a bit petty on the LL part - hopefully it will all just blow over and not make things awkward for you. If they were tresspassing you have every right to be upset!

    I have to say though to all of you who are chucking up a stink about owners doing drive-bys and attending inspections - how about putting yourself in the owners shoes sometimes. Imagine having strangers living in a house that you have put your heart and soul into (not to mention cost you a bloody fortune). I have to tell you - after the horror stories I have heard from friends about their rental properties and damage etc. - i'd be doing a drive-by every now and then too (as is my right). Not sure if I would feel the need to attend inspections - but if an owner feels the need to do this, then I don't see a problem with it, since at the end of the day.... they own the house.

    Did you already know the owner was thinking of selling?

    It was mentioned at the inspection a few months back but that's all we have heard.

    Well then it was *obviously* a vindictive move on your behalf then, wasn't it?
