Besides, every single TA has a clause on peaceful enjoyment of the premises by the tenant so too frequent viewers not to mention at "any time" would contradict this clause.
We just got the TA (And refused it too! Getting the money back tomorrow) and it states that the house will be open to viewing four days in a week, 2 hours each time, including Saturday and Sunday, starting from the day we move in! That effectively means, we will be having unwanted guests four times in a week! Every home-owner's dream come true!
And to top it, they are asking for a 3 month Security Deposit, against the standard 1+1! And they also have strange clauses like, taking written permission from the owner before hanging a painting on the wall! (Seriously....it is written in the TA!!! I had to laugh on this one, despite my grim mood!) They are also asking us to given in writing that we will get their blinds and curtains drycleaned once every month!
So basically, we are back to looking for another unit and totally screwed, cause the Service Apartment
cannot extend our dates and we have exactly 7 days to move out!
We have a couple of houses lined up to see in a day or two and everywhere I am insisting that if we like the house, we won't wait and will sign the TA within 24 hours!
The agent, as usual, says yes to everything on phone, but when it comes to jotting down everything on paper, the story is totally different! Don't know what is going to happen, hoping for the best!
