Finally got on to the Tenancy advocacy line. They have suggested i write a letter stating what was originally agreed upon between myself and the sales agent and specifying what times would suit me for inspections.
She also said i could ask for a rent reduction if open homes are to continue as this impacts on my privacy and ability to experience quiet enjoyment of my property.
Hmm.. so is there anyone good at writing letters who would like to help out?

I am going through a similar drama but my landlord is private. He called me Sunday night to say there would be an open house inspection Monday morning, then after that 1 I got 3 more phone calls from him saying he would be bringing another person through in 30 mins/1 hour. Such a pain!

Legally the tribunal can grant agents 2 set times a week, so we always negotiate these times with the tenant but your guy sounds like a pig!
You could always come down with a mystery illness on Saturday so no inspections allowed! ( mean but he deserves it!)
With the letter something like this;
Dear Real Estate, ( the licensee)
I am writing in reference to the sale of the above property that I am currently leasing. As confirmed by the Tenancy advocacy service and in line with the Residential Tenancies Act regulations I have negotiated fair and reasonable inspection times with Mr Pig Agent however he is constantly changing our agreement and forcing me to accept inspections that are not convenient and interfere with my quite enjoyment of the home as well as placing tremendous stress on myself
Can you please confirm in writing that your agency will comply with the times we agreed to being :::; ;;;;; otherwise I will not allow access to the property and will have to take the case to the Residential Tenancy Tribunal where I will also be seeking a reduction in rent as compensation

love the Mr Pig agent..lol I relise he can have 2 inspections a week. Originally he only wanted one a fn and i assume if i pursue the issue and don't give into what he wants he will up the frequency. But i spose if that happens there might actually be a chance of the property being sold and i might not have to deal with this sh!t anymore!!

You have to let them in weekly so I don't think every second Saturday would work - opens are annoying but at least they can get them through all at once and won't keep annoying you!

The agent only wanted every second Saturday as he has his kids every second week.
The lady at the tenancy advocacy line advised me to request private inspections and write something about holding the sales agent liable for any damages/missing goods.
