We have 6 months left in a lease and the estate is selling the property. The sellers and agent have been very aggressive about insisting we let them into or onto the property, (which we pay a pretty penny for,) so that they can do sales related inspections and non-emergency repairs to satisfy the buyer. We have a dog (on the lease) that will destroy herself if they are even in the yard and we have told them they may not be here if one of us is not, that in order to make it more likely that we can accommodate them they need to give us as much notice as is possible, a request they routinely ignore. I am often a 7 hour drive away getting our vacation home ready to move to and DH puts in huge hours at work. Their insistence on someone being here is putting his bonus at risk, a bonus that can be up to 90% of salary.

I reply:

I'm not a real estate lawyer, I haven't seen your lease, and I don't know what state the property is in. But unless their entry onto the property is in compliance with the lease (I assume you have a written lease), I expect that they're trespassing, plain and simple. The ultimate threat is to ask a court for an injunction to prevent them from entering your property other than as permitted by the lease. --Bob
