How to Switch Letting Agents in Hull with Ease

How to Switch Letting Agents in Hull with Ease


Whether you are receiving my Hull Property newsletter for the first time or are a seasoned reader, you’ll not be surprised to learn that we have started to attract many landlords seeking advice with their residential lettings. Ultimately, they are seeing a better and more professional service than they receive from their current letting agent.

We are getting more and more landlords approaching us who are unhappy or dissatisfied with their current agent and have been asking us how to go about moving management of their property to us.

If you have a property in or around the Hull area and are unhappy with your current agent, then why not switch?

There is a general feeling amongst landlords that it is better to wait until their current tenant has given notice to leave the property before they even contemplate changing agents, as it is far more problematic to change agents midway through a tenancy. While this can be true, it is not your hassle, as we can do most of the work for you!

Have a look at our 5 step process if you are considering moving from your current letting agent if you are dissatisfied with their service:


Step One: Giving Notice


Find out how much notice you are required to give your current agent. This is likely to be 1 or 2 months and should be contained within the Terms of Business you signed. If you cannot find it, simply contact them and ask them. Once you have this information, give them the required written notice to end your agreement with them.


Step Two: Collecting Tenant Details


Ideally you will also need contact details for the current tenant which your current Letting agent should provide.


Step Three: The Paperwork


We will arrange to meet you, either at your home or at our offices, where we will go through our terms of business. We will also outline our lettings process and our commitment to providing an unrivalled lettings and management service.

We will provide you with all the necessary paperwork for you to read and complete.


Step Four: Informing Your Tenant


We will contact your current tenant and set up a meeting with them at the property to introduce ourselves and to explain the process going forward. This will involve them adjusting their standing order to pay us rather than your current agent. The timing of this switch will depend on when the notice you give your current agent expires.


Step Five: Your Personal Property Manager


Both you and your tenant will be assigned a dedicated property manager who will be your contact throughout the tenancy, should any matters arise that require our attention.


That’s it. It really is that easy!


If you are looking for an agent that is pro-active, professional and communicative, then contact us to find out how we can get the best out of your investment property.
