My landlord is considering selling the flat I am currently renting and would like to arrange viewings. However, we are still in a national COVID lockdown, and I do not feel comfortable letting people in and out of the flat (I also work at home).

Can the landlord force the viewings? What are my rights as a tenant?

    Is there anything in your tenancy agreement about viewings? Generally speaking, you're not required to let anyone into the property, unless it's an emergency, or unless your tenancy agreement makes provision for it (and even then, 24 hours' notice is typically required). Mar 18, 2021 at 15:16

    @giac Here's the Government's non-statutory guidance that may assist.
