First, any new purchaser "steps into the shoes" of your current landlord
and you have the right to remain a tenant for the duration of your lease.
As for showing, there is reasonable and there is ridiculous. We've seen
nothing in the law that allows an open house. He can give you advance notice
for a showing (keep a record of how long it took to show the place to
those who had appointments), and use that as a guide.

: Our landlord who lives out of town is selling the house we have rented.
: His listing agent calls every day to show the house. I have been
: cooperative so far because I know the landlord has a right to do this with 24 hours notice.
: Now, however, he wants the listing agent to hold an open house on a Sunday
: and allow any person from off the street to enter the property. I have serious
: security issues about this since we live in the city and other houses around
: us have been broken into. Do I have a right to refuse this? I feel as though
: the landlord can throw a party in my house as long as it does not go overnight.
: When does it become too much?
