Leasehold and landlord entry
I am leasing an upscale condo in Orange County CA. My rent is 1800./month. I moved in in August 2005 and signed a one year lease. In February, 2006, the owners put it on the market.
What are my rights AND responsibilities in terms of making this home available to prospective buyers?
Do I have to have a lockbox?
Can I require specific appointment times for showings?
So far, I have allowed showings without appointments three days a week within certain hours.
I will be working from home for the summer, and cannot work with the threat of the doorbell ringing at any time. I have requested "by appointment only" and am getting significant flak from the listing agent. The owners are very accommodating to me, but I think the agent is trying to push all of us around to get more traffic through.
My lease is up 7/31 at which point I'll be moving, but I need some advice for getting through the summer -- and to know whether if this all becomes to much, if I have the right to say "ENOUGH."
