Renting home but owner wants to sellHi, I've been renting a house for 3 years, after the two year lease expired, the owners kept saying that they would bring over a new one but they haven't. I trusted that it was because they've been busy with a new baby, etc., so I figured that I'm on a month to month basis. The owners wants to sell the house, though the house is not officially on the market yet and there is not a listing agreement between the owners and a realtor. The owners of my home also own the home next door that is officially on the market, and according to the owners, as soon as that home sells then my home will be on the market. I noticed that on the sale brochure of the home next door is written that my home is for sale too, its in small print on the bottom of the brochure. This same information for the home next door and for my residence is also listed on the realtors website. Well, last week the realtor called me (without my permission, obviously my landlord gave him my phone #) and asked if he could show my home to some perspective buyers on Saturday at 11am and I agreed because I have a decent relationship with my landlord, the owners. The realtor then asked if we could leave the house during that time and I reluctantly agreed. Upon returning home the realtor called again requesting that he show the home again and at that point I said no. I stated that I had to use my home that day and that people entering my home made me feel uncomfortable. He tried to pressure me though I stood firm. My questions are: 1. Am I obliged to show this home without a listing agreement? 2. Can the owners write in the sale brochure for the house next door that the house I'm living in is for sale too? 3. Do I have the right to refuse a showing? 4. How can I deal with this situation without feeling like I'm the bad person here?April 11 2010 - Highland00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
