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...

I recently purchased my first home through Shortland Horne. From the viewing, the follow ups and to the day of completion, my experience with the team has been great. The property I bought was listed by 2 agents, and given the great experience my parents had in the past with the SH team, I chose to proceed with them also. They were always available to communicate with, and guide me throughout the process of buying home. Being my first purchase, they were patient and knowledgeable and saved me time in chasing. Sue was always friendly, and happy to help where she could. I would recommend Shortland Horne to all Buyers, as the service they receive will be unmatched by another. Thank you again!

Shortland Horne, and specificall Sue and Richard, were working with us to complete the purchase of a house on their books, due to many factors this was not always as straight forward as it could have been (what with 2020, pandemic etc) but always Sue and Richard were professional, responsive and courteous. Always available to us and happy to resolve issues and chase outstanding issues. Recommended.
