Is it difficult to change letting agents?

From speaking to landlords considering changing letting agents to Pure Property Management, there’s a perception that it’s a tricky & complicated process to change letting agent. For busy landlords it can feel like a lot of work to transfer everything over from one letting agent to another, particularly when a tenancy is already underway, deposits have been lodged, standing orders set up, maintenance jobs in progress.

Well it doesn’t need to be complicated!

In reality it’s really easy for landlords to change agents, with minimal fuss and workload for the landlord – we’ll do the heavy lifting!

What’s the process?

I’d always suggest that you take a look at your current Management Agreement. There may be a termination clause relating to the time that you’re contracted to use your current agent and there may even be costs involved to terminate the agreement. If you don’t have a copy of your Management Agreement, you can request a copy from your current agent.

For landlords looking to change letting agents, all they need to do is email their current letting agent, copying us in and including the following sentence;

I’d like to transfer the management of my property over to Pure Property Management, please liaise directly with their team to ensure a seamless switch.

……and we’ll do the rest, taking care of all the hard work and keeping you and your tenant updated throughout the transfer. We’ll make sure the rent is paid, the deposit is transferred and all property documents collected from the outgoing letting agent!
