How to switch Letting Agent, in 6 easy steps!

We have recently been approached by a number of Landlords who are unhappy with their current Letting agent, and wanted to know how to move the management of their property to us.

If you have a property in Brighton & Hove or the surrounding villages and are disatisfied with your current Letting agent, then why not consider switching too?

It may feel like a lot of hassle but we can do most of the work for you. Below is a step by step guide to moving from your current Letting agent to Belvoir.

1. 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 your current agent and ask them. Once you have this information, give them the required written notice to end your agreement with them. It will be simplest if your notice ends on a rent due date as it will make the rent payment switching process much easier.

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

3. 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.

4. We will send you our paperwork for you to complete and sign.

5. At the point of taking over management, we would usually produce a new tenancy agreement for the tenant to sign. We feel more comfortable using our own as we know the contents and our legal team have ensured it is up to date.

6. Congratulations! Belvoir is your new managing agent!
