: well our landlady calls
: us to tell us that she is putting the house up for 24 hrs we get a call
: from the real; estate telling us that we have to give them a key to the house
: no notice at all with in 24hrs they want to invade our home i don't think this
: is fair i think they should of given us some kind of notice so if anybody out
: there can give us some laws on notices like this please email me or some
: thing we don't know what to do we just know this is not fair

The laws differ from place to place and the owner is not required to
tell you if they are selling the house (if you have a lease, you would
become the tenants of the new owner subject to the provisions of the lease
or your local laws). I don't think you must give a key to the real estate
people -- you still rent and have rights. But in most areas you must cooperate
in allowing them to show the house with "reasonable frequency" -- not three times
a day, with "reasonable" notice -- that varies, usually 24-48 hours written
notice, and at "reasonable" times. Cooperate, but don't let them
walk all over your rights. Set up a time (maybe one day a week) where they
can show the house.
