You answered your own question - right from your lease.
Yes, you have the right to be there while he shows it.
Real estate brokers show occupied apartments all the time and exercise proper discretion to ensure that a tenant's belongings are not disturbed or even touched. Broker or LL does not want to be accused of pilfering tenant's property.
Common sense would be for you to be notified when a showing would take place, and that such showings occur during reasonable hours.
: Can my LL show my apt. when I am not at home? I do not feel safe in letting strangers walk about my home without me being there. What if something is broken or comes up missing? Could I hold my LL liable?
: My lease states"The tenants agree to permit LL to show the premises to persons wishing to rent the same (apt)". Is this without limits? I asked that I be present during the showings. Does my LL have to comply to my reasonable wishe? Common sense would say YES, but what about the law in NYS? Any help out there?
