Question: Are tenants obligated to work with owner in showing a house when landlord has put it up for sale? What is the lead time a realtor has to give a tenant to show house and how often can a house be shown in one month?
Answer: There are no specific rules about how often a landlord may show a tenant’s home to prospective purchasers. However, the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act specifies that “the tenant shall not unreasonably withhold consent to the landlord to enter into the dwelling unit in order to inspect the premises, make necessary or agreed repairs, decorations, alterations or improvements, supply necessary or agreed services or exhibit the dwelling unit to prospective or actual purchasers, mortgagees, tenants, workmen or contractors” and that “except in case of emergency or if it is impracticable to do so, the landlord shall give the tenant at least two days’ notice of the landlord’s intent to enter and enter only at reasonable times” (A.R.S. 33-1343).
