Another reader sends the above from 1329 V Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

My landlord has decided to sell the row house I’m currently renting. We have one of three units. They’re planning on listing it this week and of course want to start showing it.

I am not at all wild about the idea of strangers coming into our home during a quarantine. I’m not trying to be difficult or hold up the process, but this is an extraordinary time and I was wondering what the community thinks. Do we have any recourse? Do I just have to let any potential buyer in? Thanks.”
