Changing Management Agents

Changing management responsibility mid tenancy is something that happens for a variety reasons. Landlords may have been dealing with the management of the property themselves and have found the time required does not fit in with their other commitments, the Landlord may have become unhappy with the service of their current Agent or the current Agent is no longer trading.


Whatever the reason taking over management mid tenancy involves quite a bit of work. An experienced Agent will be able to handle the process with minimum disruption to the Tenant. There are many things to be considered such as making sure the Tenants are informed, arranging new payment details, checking the status of the deposit registration, arranging an inspection of the property, checking all certificates are up to date and ensuring the tenancy agreement has been completed correctly are a few that spring to mind.


Where a Landlord is looking at leaving their current Agent they will need to check the terms and conditions that were agreed to as most Agents will have a cancellation policy built into their agency agreement. This can be a set amount of notice required or a financial settlement to end the agreement. Even if the tenancy agreement has ended, the Agents agreement will still apply and will not end until the Tenant vacates.


If you are considering changing Agent or looking at renting your property out. Contact Shortland Horne to arrange a free consultation. Call 024 76222123 or email for more information.

Don’t just take our word for it

Here are just a few of our five star and excellent allAgent reviews...

It is a privilege to appreciate the premier class assistance Shortland Horne gave with our house sales and purchase. Due to the pandemic, moving took almost a year to complete but Shortland Horne were there throughout seeking out purchasers and coordinating our purchase with great care and empathy. Now that the boxes are empty it's great to relax and enjoy a quality home. So grateful thanks go to all of you at Shortland Horne - really enjoyed working with you. Our experience with Shortland Horne began with Bill's valuation in his wonderful friendly, caring style. Subsequently the arrangements you all made for viewings were outstanding, especially after COVID kicked in. Dan was superb facilitating the sale and purchase, always keeping us informed of progress in this endurance test. Your After Sales Team of Linda, Vikki and Sam were very caring with Sam excellent in the last few anxious days, seeking to unlock log jams down the chain. In reflection it was a splendid decision to choose Shortland Horne to act for us. Thank you all once again.

A massive thank you to Andy Griffin and Sam Bailey at Shortland Horne you were both amazing at getting my house sold and also helping out to chase the whole of the sale through until the end. Andy visited my property at Burns Road and Bill Green found me a buyer me and my husband can\'t thank you enough for your hard work throughout the whole process. Would highly recommend this estate agent to anyone looking to buy and sell.

I have a small portfolio of properties and Shortland Horne let 5 of them for me. They are always courteous and helpful and seem to achieve a reasonably quick turn round - which is exceptional in these tricky Covid times. I would recommend anyone looking for a letting agency to try Shortland Horne.
