So here's the deal.
The apartment we live in is for sale.
It means that almost everyday, people come and visit it. Sometimes they call in advance, like several hours before but sometimes they just show up at the door. Last time they did that, I refused that they would come in. The agent said they had called us (lie) and that we were sleeping (!!!) and that they had to visit the apartment. They stayed at the door for 20 minutes, until we decided to go out. I guess they left after us.
Just now, a man rang the bell downstairs and said they would come in 10 minutes, I said it was impossible. And then he started to ask why, and I have customers here and they need to see it now, and blah blah blah... Well it's not my problem, and I told him to come back in the evening, that 10 minutes was too soon... He said, I said 30 minutes, you don't understand...And the communication cut.
That was... 10 minutes ago and at this very moment they are at the door... Trying to call on the phone.
I don't know how to explain to them that they have to call in advance. Like at least an hour before. We told them nicely before.
Any brilliant idea?
LOL, ha ha, I like your style!
This happened to a friend of mine recently so he decided to move out of the apartment as 1 potential buyer convinced his landlord that he was going to buy only to pull out of the deal and leave the landlord with an empty apartment.
You know how it is, small real estate companies all over the street with 20 more employees then they should have. As soon as someone stops to look at the adverts, all 20 of those agents are on the person like white on rice. If someone has even the slightest desire to find a place, then since they are working off of commission, they want to take the person to the apartment immediately. I agree with the others, check your rental contract first, then if you don't find any clauses in it, then tell these agents the rules, maybe even posting it on the outside of your door. If they decide to call you outside those hours, be firm and don't back down.
Real estate agents are people who has no skills whatsoever to get any "real" jobs, that's why they are real estate agents. Stand firm on your rules, they don't deserve your respect because they surely don't respect you.
start a fire
LOL, this is a more subtle approach to how I feel about it!
Good call superfreak, let's have a "housewarming" party, this time the warm part, is a bonfire in the middle of the lounge! :-)
tell them to fuck off!
Sorry for my profanity Yay yay , but you have lived here long enough to know niceties, don't get one anywhere.
I am sick of this shite, what about being cordial, and agreeing on a mutually convenient time, should you drop your plans, because of this, hell no, you have a daughter, a bf, a job, a life you must manage....shaking my head in bewilderment!
Welcome to China! You no like, you go home.
hey foreigner...sod off! :P
haha!~~~ that's the agent.
1.If your landlord wants to sell the apartment, you'd better to find another apartment as soon as possible.
2.Only open the door for the agents until you get the advanced phone calls from your landlord.
3.Don't try to talk with the agent, they only care about the commision.
The key person is your landlord.Maybe you could try to negociate with her to avoid some problems come from the agent.
I don't open the door for anyone unless they have been invited, like takeout delivery or DHL.
If they are intending to sell the place, don't let anyone in until you have moved out and make sure you use up the deposit in lieu of rent. You are going to have to move anyway.
Contract? Who really give a toss what is in the contract? Does anyone really go to court to have them enforced? By the time they do, you will be long gone.
bang on their Robert, have told my wife we must do the same thing in respect of the bond prior to our departure, because even though it's not a huge sum of money, the principle of such means that, good will , ie : getting your bind back must happen.
I think there is no hope in hell of this occuring, and will simply not pay the last three months rent!
