So.......inspection was scheduled for today at 12:45pm. Was feeling a bit ill so had a bit of a sleep in, woke up a bit before 11am to do last minute tidy up, figuring I'd have plenty of time still to mop the floors, do the dishes and vacuum up the crumbs that my son had left all over the carpet during my sleep in (sigh!).
Hear a knock on the door at 11:25am....and there was the property manager with some other lady from the office, an hour and a half earlier than expected. I stated that she was early and she said she had a few cancellations, I said that I was sorry but she would have to come back at the appointed time. She said in a very insolent tone "Are you serious??" and I said yes, and she asked why very haughtily, which I stated that they showed up earlier than appointed and I still have some things to do. She was like "Oh but we're not coming back into *town*" (office is next town over, 5 mins away) and I basically said something like well you'll just have to come back, and shut the door.
As I thought, they have not returned. I'm counting on her telling the landlords that I refused entry, no doubt leaving out the fact that they showed up extremely early, without so much as a simple phone call to check that it would be okay and that I would be home. I find it extremely rude and unprofessional....but what are my actual rights in a situation like this?!
I will be contacting the tenant advocacy service tomorrow (it's closed now unfortunately), but it's playing over and over in my head and I'm hoping someone might have some constructive advice.
I am so so tired of this real estate. I have lived here for over two years, I was originally through a different real estate until previous landlord sold the property and new owners changed real estate. Never had a problem with previous RE. This property manager is just rude. The previous booked inspection she did not even show up! No notice at all. I waited around for most of the day, finally called office to be told that she had forgot. Yet she was rude when I rescheduled an inspection because my mum had passed away suddenly and unexpectedly the day before, acting like she was doing me some huge favour. Uggggh. Honestly considering moving just so I don't have to deal with her anymore.
