Housing

Ok, OK. I get it. I'm a student, we live in a shared house so we don't deserve to be treated like human beings. Right.

We keep having viewings on the house - usually the day before our landlord texts us a time and it's a pain, but Okish. (There have been a lot of them, though, and we don't move out til June).

Yesterday we get a text saying there is a viewing for 14:30. So, I clean up a bit, but about 13:00 I think I'll have a bath. I'm having a lovely splash about and someone rattles and pulls on the door. I ignore it, do my washing thing and get out at about 1:45.

Justine, my housemate, is in her room, furious. Apparently they turned up an hour early and were rude and bossy and obnoxious about being unable to get in the bathroom. Justine told them come back at the right time, and they insisted it was an "hour slot" between 1:30 and 2:30. No, that's not what we were told, and Justine showed him the text, to which the agency guy got really huffy. Basically they just barged around the house anyway. I don't like people in my room without me in there - we are a close house and don't have locks on the doors and are free with our things, so anyone could just pick up any of my stuff, you know? My purse was out, my ipod, all that stuff.

Anyway. I'm really not happy with this. Does anyone know if tenants have any rights regarding viewings?
