The property I rent has been up for sale since June. That's 5 months of continued open for inspections every Saturday afternoon.
I get $20 a week reduced rent but I still feel enough is enoug I am sick of it!!!
I am in victoria. I know I don't really have any rights as if the LL wants to sell they can do so, and as long as I have 'quiet enjoyment' they are within their rights.
They also aren't fixing some 'not urgent' things such as broken blinds due to being faulty as they are selling and don't want to spend the money.
Do you think it's cheeky or are the LL entitled to do whatever they want?

They are within their rights to have inspections if the place is for sale as long as they give you adequate notice.
If the house is for sale, I doubt they will be putting much money into it for non urgent repairs.
You are kind of getting compensation. I never got any form of compensation, just a notice to let me know I had to be out within ninety days.
That's renting for you.

Quite within their rights.
We didn't get compensation at all ... Reduced rent is amazing!
They stuffed up settlement on our last rental and we had less than 3 weeks to move.

They are within their rights, but it's incredibly annoying for you. An open house every saturday is obviously not doing any good if the house isn't selling. Do they actually get anyone through? If not, I'd be asking the real estate to reduce it to once per fortnight, or cancel them altogether, but agree that they can do private inspections when necessary (with appropriate notice).
