Dear …

Re: Inspection times for selling the premises [your address]

I am writing to arrange appropriate access times, for inspection by prospective buyers of my rental premises. While I am happy to co-operate with you, I am sure you understand my need for peace comfort and privacy.

Section 53(4) of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 states that I am not required to agree to more than 2 inspections per week.

The following times would be convenient for inspections to take place:

-  [Saturdays from 10am to 12 noon
-  Wednesdays from 5pm to 6pm].

If you require access outside of the above times, please contact me on [phone number] [during work hours] to arrange a suitable time.

Yours sincerely

[T Tenant]
