Why should I switch letting agent?

The most common reason for switching agent is simply getting a bad service.

This can manifest in many ways, lack of communication, high staff turnover leaving you in the dark and long void periods to name a few.

If you find you are chasing your current agent for call backs, handling more of the legwork with maintenance and repairs or concerned about the safety and compliance of your property… it could be time to switch.

Contrary to what you might think, you don’t need to wait until your property is vacant to change agent. Your tenant will actually be one of the first people to benefit from the switch. Our tenant guides, designated property manager and easy repair reporting means everyone is now in good hands.

If this is the case when you come to us, we can take on management at a reduced rate for the continuation of the current tenancy. It would then default to our standard management fee when the time comes to market and re let the property.

How do I switch letting agency?

  1. Read through the contract you have with your current agent. You may have to give a notice period with your current agent; your Terms of Business should outline this and any other fixed term agreement you might need to honour. We can help you give written notice to your agent so you can avoid any awkward conversations.
  2. Instruct us. Our on-boarding process is just as easy and can all be done remotely with electronic terms and checks.
  3. The switch. We will liaise with your old agent to collect the documents such as electrical and gas certificates as well as deposits. We can even arrange to collect the keys.
  4. Relax. We will then introduce ourselves to your tenants and make their switch easy with our innovative rent collections and payment system.
