Alright, I have two questions for you.
1. I rent an apartment in a house that the landlord is trying to sell. There are 9 units in the house and almost all of us are students. I'm one of the only people who have gone through and decorated it. I painted spots (allowed by the landlord), have real curtains up that match the furniture (rather than bedsheets), and actually have pictures and wall art framed and mounted on the wall. It's also almost always really clean. My landlord has been giving me 24 hours notice that he's going to be showing the place, but he's showed it twelve times in two weeks. Does anyone know if there are any general rules/restrictions on how often he can show a tenant's apartment? I live in Ontario, Canada, if that helps. I wouldn't mind so much if he was showing all the apartments twelve times, but it's only my apartment that he tends to show people. Sometimes he'll show a few of the others, but they're always a different rotation and none of them have had their shown more than 5 times in the last two weeks.
Also, do I actually have to be out of the apartment when he's showing it? I know it's common for homeowners to leave the house while a prospective buyer is coming through with the real estate agent but since I'm not trying to sell my apartment, is his demand that I not be there while he shows it unfounded? Especially because he gives me a four hour timeslot almost every day and it's really difficult to make sure I'm gone all the time - especially when I have work I need to be doing on the computer.
Finally, are there any guide lines that say he can't be showing apartments at stupid hours of the day? For example, tomorrow he's showing the place between 7am and 11am in the morning. And I'm hardly ever up for my 9am classes, never mind being up and gone by 7am. Sunday night he's showing the place between 9pm and 12am, which is almost worse than early mornings.
2. Do any of you have any experiences using Xenical? It's a prescription weight-loss drug. My doc prescribed it for me, and it's covered by my health insurance, but I'm a little afaid of the side-effects the drug site lists it as having. Do you have any good OR bad experiences with it?
Thanks so much! :)
