Changing letting agent – whether at the end of or during a tenancy – is a straightforward process for landlords. Once a landlord has given their agent written notice that they would like to leave, the new agent will handle all aspects of the switch on behalf of their client.
At Samuel Estates, we are experienced in taking over management from other letting agents and make the process as straightforward as possible for our clients. We will:
The first step for us is to get contact details for your tenant. We liaise with the tenant directly regarding the changeover, letting them know who we are and when we will be taking over the property. We ensure that the tenant knows who to contact in the event of any maintenance issues, and has the correct bank details to make rent payments.
Including the Tenancy Agreement, prescribed information, referencing reports, deposit details, and check-in inventory.
- Obtain property documents
Including safety certificates and warranties. We will check that your property is fully compliant with current safety legislation.
We will collect all sets of keys held by the previous agent on behalf of the landlord.
- Arrange a property inspection
Our initial inspections are scheduled in the first six weeks from taking on the property.
