Bound by terms?
Any good agent will allow an unhappy landlord to serve notice as long as they give reasonable notice. Your terms of business should clearly advise how you can leave and whether there are any penalties for doing so. No agent should force you to stay with their service, especially after the initial term.
Will I lose tenants?
You may be concerned that you'll lose your tenants by ending the tenancy to switch agents. However, this is not the case, the tenants don’t actually belong to the agent who found them as they were found on your behalf as a landlord paying for exactly that service. It's actually rather straightforward to transition an existing tenancy without too much disruption to your tenants at all. The key to a smooth transition is communication; something we are passionate about, and really good at!
It's no hassle at all
Switching agents really isn’t the hassle you might think. It doesn’t have to be stressful or time consuming - you just need a great agent to take on the task for you! Once you have served notice to leave your current agent, we will deal with everything on your behalf, including re-registering your tenant's deposit (in line with legal requirements). We would then introduce ourselves to your tenants to request that they sign our tenancy agreement to continue on their previously agreed terms. And, what's even better is that we are proud to offer this service completely free of charge.
