    Both the owner and the real estate think we are being unreasonable.
    Don't I know they are old. He takes a walk Every morning and night down b the street and he prefers to go through her house like he has always done.
    Don't I know they are old and need more visit from family to look after them.
    His mother uses a wheel walker.
    There visitors prefer to go that way.
    They find the steps at the front of their house hard.

    The are old and they won't hurt her. That won't even be nice to to her.

    No other Tennant have minded.

    So should just put up with the landlords going through her place at a minimum of 2 times and up to unlimited time a day.


    Now they are say it was common space since it was subdivided years ago. So that overrides the least she has.

    The keep saying we are the baddies. Why are we doing this to them.

    I seriously just want to cry.
    It put her mental health at risk.

    So now I have to find the cash for to move again.

    I am just crushed.

    Call the rental tribunal, it should be grounds to break lease early with no penalty.

    I would padlock the gate except on bin day. That would be me being VERY nice. I would notify the real estate agent of my intentions.

    Call the local tenancy advocacy service. They are always super helpful in such situations. They can offer you advice, help you make applications/write letters, even attend tribunal with you if it gets to that point.
    Definitely worth at least speaking to them.

    Their response was unprofessional IMO. Whatever their situation is, is irrelevant. Your DD/you have rights as a tenant to privacy. It doesn't matter that they are "harmless"...that's really not the point. I'd be creeped out as **** to see random people, especially men, outside my bedroom window. You have every right to take this further, ESPECIALLY since the "common area" was not specified in the lease agreement. That's like me driving to my rental property and opening the back gate, strolling in without saying anything to my tenant and making up some bull**** excuse. If they are separate properties, they should be treated like separate properties.

    You will have to apply to tribunal to either get a order to stop them coming onto the property or to break the lease with no penalty ( you should win but yes it's a hassle to have to go through it)

    You should write to the agent stating that you were not aware of any common property and it was not noted on the lease and that had you known you would not have rented the home for security and privacy reasons and you would like a) the gate to be locked permanently or b) to get out of the lease penalty free and if you do not get an answer with in 7 days you will have to choice but to apply for an order from the tribunal ( hopefully they will agree to either demand before it comes to that)

    Lock the gates!!! They can't have the financial benefit of subdivision but then expect to treat it as their own property....
