Tampa, FL asked in Real Estate Law and Landlord - Tenant for Florida

Q: I am currently renting a house in florida. My landlord wants to bring in people to look at the house. Can i refuse?

I don’t feel comfortable with random people coming into my home where i’m renting to look around.

I have multiple kids and work full time and do not have the time to be setting my home up for a viewing.

Can i refuse having him bring people in?

Also one of my children is quarantining due to possible covid exposure.

What to do?

A: Review your lease to see what it says about the landlord having access to the unit for that purpose and how much notice they need to give you.
