When you work with a Letting agency as a landlord or property investor, you should always have peace of mind knowing that you are in safe and capable hands. However, this is not always true and it can be frustrating when your agent is doing the opposite. If this is the case for you, keep reading to find out how we can advise you on being provided with the level of service you deserve and switch letting agents.


Reasons for Switching Letting Agents

If you are unhappy with the level of service being provided to you by your existing letting agency, then this is a clear sign that you are ready to switch. There are several ways that a letting agency can fail to fulfil the correct standard of service you wish to be provided with and these can include but are not limited to: lack of clear communication, expensive additional charges that had not been stated previously, not finding a suitable tenancy for your property resulting in an empty property for long periods. No matter what the issue is, you should know that there are options available to you, regardless of your circumstance.


Changing Mid-Tenancy

The first step to switching letting agents is to read your contract carefully. Most property investors believe that it can be too much hassle and too costly, however knowing your rights and the agreed terms in your contract can make this transition that much easier. The termination clause will provide you with details on how and when you need to notify your letting agent of your notice period and how to execute the termination of your contract.
