Can a Landlord Show a House That You Are Renting?

A landlord has the right to sell their property, even while occupied. Even so, there are rules dictating how and when they may enter, sometimes differing between states. Often there is a twenty-four hour written notice that a landlord must give to the tenant before entering the property to show, and often the request to show must be within normal business hours so as to disturb the tenant as little as possible. In some states, such as California, a verbal notice may be given, but only if a prior, written notice that the property will be shown due to it being up for sale has been given within the legal time frame. It is best to have this detailed out in any lease, if it is in the plan to sell the property or not, so that it is covered and understood by both parties.
