    Even once the notice is given that someone will be coming around, they should knock on the front door first and introduce themselves! Common curtesy. You don't just go wandering through the backyard.

    No, not legal, and my first thought was same as others above - just because they claim to be the owners doesn't make it true. That would have totally freaked me out. First thing I'd do is contact the real estate agent and try to verify if they really were the owners. If not, then contact the police, if so, then contact your local residential tenancies authority.

    That is really quite disturbing.

    Also, wouldn't the owners know how long their tenant had lived in their property?? Strange thing to ask...

    Glad to know I am not overreacting.

    DSS is having a meltdown- he is obsessed with burglars at the moment and this has freaked him out.

    It is the notice (and me not knowing who they are) that is the problem- more than happy for them to view.

    That's awful that they just wandered onto your property like that. Would have freaked me out if I saw a stranger heading into the backyard! Definitely worth having a word to the agent to see if it was in fact the owners and have agent remind them of the rules on how they go about viewing the property.
    We were recently renting while we built and the owners showed up there once to get their mail which was bad enough but at least they went to the front door!

    In regards to now knowing how long we were living here- we were given access to paint before moving in, so they might not know how long we have actually been living here.

    I am freaked out now that it could have just been anyone. I know the owner was supposed to come during the week (last Friday) to check on mould growth... but surely granting access for then isn't giving him open access??

    No, it's not. If he was given permission for that Friday, it's not now an open door policy thereafter.

    Yeah, not on at all.

    Yep
    They need to give you 7 days notice in writing unless it's an emergency and I highly doubt an owner would just walk around the back and sit down so for your own security inform the agent what they looked like and ask her to ring the owners just in case it was a relative

    I would call the agent to confirm it was actually the landlord and if it wasn't I would be letting the police know.

    It is also totally inappropriate for the woman to wander into your back yard while the man stood out the front. Surely you would knock on the front door and wait.

    I hope your DSS calms down soon, must have been unpleasant for the poor kid.
