Please see below our 5 step guide to moving your management, and becoming one of the thousands of happy Belvoir landlords.
1. Find out your notice period.
All agents vary on this; it should be contained in the Terms of Business you signed, if you cannot find it, you can contact them to ask. Please feel free to bring in your paperwork to one of our branches for us to look over if you would like further advice or assistance. (Please be aware some agents do have charges required for this.)
2. Provide your agent with the correct notice.
This is always needed in writing, and we recommend this is done to fall in line with the rental due dates, to make the transition easier for your tenants.
3. Complete our paperwork.
We will provide you with all the required documents, and are happy to go through anything you are unsure of before signing.
4. Collect the relevant documentation.
We can do this on your behalf, but we do ask that you provide us with your previous agent’s details along with your current tenant’s contact details. We will then liaise with your previous agent to obtain copies of the inventory/gas safety certificates and deposit details.
5. Inform your tenants.
Again, this is something we can take care of on your behalf if you would prefer. We would usually set up a meeting with the tenants to introduce ourselves and provide them with our contact information, and the new details on where to make their standing order payments. We would also create and provide to them a new tenancy agreement, for them to sign. (Please be aware we would continue the inventory as per that taken by the previous agent at the beginning of their tenancy)
