When should you change managing agents ?


If you are not happy with your current managing agent or property manager, and have communicated your concerns, and your concerns have not been addressed, then it may be time to switch managing agents.

Can I change managing agents mid tenancy / mid lease ?
Your tenants lease will remain valid even if you change agents mid term. In fact, we find that most tenants are happy when landlords make the change to us - because we deliver on what we promise !

Do I need to notify my current managing agent ?
Once we have your authority, we will notify your current managing agent and arrange to pick up your property file and keys from their office. We will also notify your tenants of the change. You don’t even need to make a call.
