Greenville, SC asked in Bankruptcy, Contracts and Foreclosure for Tennessee

Q: I live in Tennessee, can my landlord show the house to buyers during the covid pandemic and while I’m currentlypregnant

My landlord told us before we signed the lease that we wouldn’t have to deal with strangers coming into our home for any reason but because she’s dealing with facing foreclosure on a different house that she hasn’t been able to get anyone to buy,she’s been trying to get someone to buy the house we’re renting to make up the money. we’ve been dealing with this since we signed the lease. Is there any way to have this stopped until our lease is up in 6 months. If I catch the virus due to her bringing ppl in, is there anything I can do? I’m not able to have peace in a home I’m renting nor privacy.

A: Unless it is in your Lease there is no such prohibition. You may wish to find a leasehold elsewhere. A Buyer will take subject to your Lease, I would expect to not stay there much longer. A potential personal injury suit is not going to happen because it would be impossible to prove. causation.
