The landlord is selling the property. I am in the "high-risk" category for contracting the virus. What legal rights do I have to stop the landlord and others from coming into our home?

In the event of sale, the obligations of the tenant with regards to property viewings may be stated in the general terms and conditions of the lease contract. A mutual agreement with your landlord due to Covid-19 is possible. In case of not getting an agreement, we recommend seeking professional advice or get legal guidance. A number of organisations can assist you concerning disputes with your landlord.
