So, liturally just then the property manager of our house knocked on our door to inform us that they will be holding an open inspection on the 9th of Nov. Which I told her that we can't have it on that date as it's the day we're moving out. She said too bad, it's within the last 14 days of your lease so we can. I said no, you can have an open any day after this saturday, pick a day and time and I'll agree to it but we cant do it this saturday. She then stated up saying being all like come on, its only 15 mins out of your day, choose either morning or afternoon. I said No, I don't know how long it will take and we probably wont be home at 9am. She said well heres the notice, sign it and give it back on saturday. I said I'd talk to my partner about a time that suits us.
So, do we HAVE to let them through even thought I've mentioned twice in email that we cannot have an open house on the 9th of Nov. Or are we able to say no as long as we allowed them to do it any other day? What would you do?
I am so angry that DP wasn't home in time to have a chat to her as I had my son there, who decided to let my dog inside and out the front door so I couldnt have a chat properly.

I'm sorry but u might just have to suck it up and work with them on this. As you pushed against them last time about the 14 day rule. This would be there way of sticking it to you. Sorry they are being so difficult

Have it on that day, i think it's going to reflect badly on them as a business. Don't sit still and wait around move/pack/load etc around everyone and anyone.

Thanks for the replies, we may as well suck it up as we know no one will turn up anyway. DP will just have a go at whoever is doing the open lol. Hopefully it does look badly on them & we get in everyone's way moving stuff out of the front door as theyre trying to come in, I would feel sorry for whoever wants to look at the place as its going to be a mess!

There were boxes everywhere, furniture was blocking the doorways etc and it was nearly impossible to walk through the house. There was so much stuff!
There were heaps of people who attended as well, so it looked silly with everyone trying to shuffle through

Call your local tenancy advocacy service. They are the best source of advice.
If you do give in and let them through I would make it as inconvenient as possible. I would obstruct doorways/prevent them from entering certain rooms, have cleaning equipment everywhere, have a loud conversation about any faults the property has while perspective tenants are there, and the likes. If the PM wants to be a b!tch, throw it straight back at her.

Unfortunately you do. We just moved and I was annoyed with the opens as well, but I read our lease which stated they could have an open as long as they gave us 24 hrs notice. I also asked FIL who owns his own estate agency and he said we had to as well, but normally the agent will work around your schedule. Luckily our agent gave us a week's notice each time and worked around my schedule since I wanted to be home (not comfortable with strangers wondering through our rooms of belongings). Since we were moving overseas we had a lot of 'events' planned (like my baby shower, etc) so we just gave him times that were best and said after those times the house would be full of guests and he worked around it. Sorry yours is being a cow! We did have a carpet guy call and ask to come do a quote the day we were cleaning, I said no and that he could arrange a time later in the week when we were out, he argued with me! But he wasn't giving 24 hrs notice and the agent didn't seem bothered that I said no and to contact him.
