Not really. When you signed a lease you didn't sign a contract to be a real estate agent, you assumed quiet enjoyment of the property for the lease term. A house can be clean, but not really showable. I once rented a house the owner was trying to sell, and prospective buyers would show up unescorted with no notice and demand to see the house. They would beg and cajole us, stating they just wanted a quick look. We would tell them to set up an appointment with the agent, and refuse entry into the house. We ended up moving out before it was sold because of the hassle (at the end of our lease.) What you should do is approach the owner and get some money off the rent in exchange for keeping the house presentable.

As to the door and stain repair, if you didn't want to be overcharged, you should have fixed it yourself before the management company noticed the problem.

Actually, in the Arizona Tenancy Act, there are provisions for upkeep of the property that are the responsibility of the tenant. (Article 3, 33-1341) The agreement for upkeep in return for a reduction in rent would apply to the tenant preforming duties or maintaining areas that are typically the responsibility of the landlord, ie. upkeep/maintenance of shared areas.

With regards to showing the property or entering, all he has to do is provide 48 hours notice that he will be coming in. Non-compliance or refusal of access that is reasonable can lead to a court ordered access, termination of rental agreement and damages.


OP; this is the document you want.
