My landlord asked to start showing my apartment as soon as we gave 30 day notice. I told her what days would work for us (mon, wed, fri) for the first 15 days and then whenever she wants after that bc we will be moved. We don’t feel comfortable having her in our place those first two weeks bc we have pets and she’s proven to not be trustworthy or reliable in the past. And then there’s the eew factor of not being prepared for strangers walking through our place. 3 touring days now she said be avail from 9-1 which we were and made arrangements for our animals and tidied the place and she no showed. No call, no answer to our calls. Trying to move and work full time I cannot deal with this inconvenience for the next week. What can I do!?
If it is just for the next week you can probably get away with telling her it isn't convenient and she will have to wait until you are gone. She can't do much other than serve you with a 3 day notice and theoretically evict you but I can't imagine her bothering with all that if you are leaving so soon anyway, unless she suspects you are not actually leaving when you say you are.
One thing Mr. Bayley's on-point analysis does not consider is a situation where you are breaking a lease early. If you are breaking a lease early: it is in your favor to have someone move in ASAP that way you don't have to pay for months where the unit is vacant.
