“Can a property owner hang around the house that we’re renting from them, if the property is leased through an agent? What is the tenant’s quiet enjoyment right?”
We asked business development manager at LJ Hooker Gosford, Madeleine Smith for her opinion on this question:
“The short answer is no,” Madeleine said.
“Whether the property is rented privately or through an agent, the same rights to quiet enjoyment apply.”
“There are requirements around access to the premises for various reasons that must be complied with at all times. You can request orders in the form of compensation or right of entry if these are breached.”
