I’m renting a house and when I moved in it was owned by a realty company and it had a alarm system and they didn’t know the code so I called a alarm company and had a new one installed. Now this house was sold to another company and they want to cone change the locks and our lease isn’t up until April 9,2020. Can they do this? They said we didn’t have to be notified when they come. They also said they have the right to show this house to possible new tenants without notice as well.
The landlord can change the locks, but they have to provide you with the keys. (But I agree with you that this doesn't seem to make sense.) You are required to permit "reasonable" entry to show the property to prospective tenants or purchasers. This absolutely does not mean no notice is required and it does mean that you could (occasionally) refuse entry if it's not convenient for you.
