Landlords – Simple Switching Service

Straight forward & hassle free!

We are frequently approached by landlords asking us how easy is it to switch their current managing or letting agent. The normal reason for wanting to switch are due to a poor service or more recently we’ve had landlords feel disappointed that their property has been transferred to another agent entirely!

You are able to switch mid-tenancy…

Many landlords assume that they are unable to switch agent mid tenancy, and that it is better to wait until the current tenant has given notice to leave before it is acceptable to switch agents. This isn’t always the case and it isn’t something you have to do yourself, we can take care of everything for you!

Here’s our small list of simple steps if you are considering moving from your current letting agent;

  1. Your first port of call will be to determine how much notice you will need to provide to your current agent. This can be found on the terms and conditions you originally signed when agreeing to market the property. If you need any advice regarding this, then please contact us.
  2. If you are on a fully managed service then it would be prudent to obtain the contact details for your current tenant which your agent should give you.
  3. We will arrange to meet you, either at your home, or at our offices where we will go through our terms of business as well as outlining to you our lettings process and our commitment to providing our very comprehensive lettings and management service. We will provide you with all the necessary paperwork for you to read and complete.
  4. One of the most important stages is meeting your current tenant. We will arrange to meet them at their property to explain everything to them and provide them with a new standing order to pay their rent as well as informing them of the new address with which any legal notices shall be served. Part of this transfer may include a new tenancy agreement for the tenant to sign. This is to protect all parties as all of our tenancy agreements are updated regularly for changes in legislation. We will also deal with any necessary deposit transfer/registration.
  5. Both you and your tenant will be assigned to our dedicated Property Manager who will be your contact throughout the tenancy should any matters arise that require attention.

That really is it!

Mark Rowe

Mark Rowe Managing Director - Property Expert

I’ll start at the start! I was on £50 a week for 60 hours work a week when I first started as a trainee estate agent 17 years ago. Back then I quickly learnt that estate agency wasn’t an industry you could simply sit back and take it easy in, contrary to popular belief!

After working my way up within the first company, like many agents, I decided to take the leap of faith and join a corporate estate agency. Again, I climbed the corporate ladder this time and at one point oversaw many branches across the South Coast stepping in for Branch Managers when they had time off. I quickly learnt the difference in property pricing across many areas, which also gave me a broad understanding of the many reasons why people move, how they cope and what support they need throughout the process.

Flashing forward to 2007 and this was one of the proudest years of my life. I was given the wonderful opportunity of opening RPS Estate & Letting Agents with my Mother, Angie Rowe. We both had a very firm belief that estate agency needed to change, in a way that truly placed the customer first.

We always said ‘never forget where you come from’ and these words never leave me or the RPS team, our clients are what got us to the point RPS is at today. We proved this by winning the Gold award for Estate Agency of the Year in 2015, based purely on customer feedback and fending off the corporate estate agencies as well as other local independents.

It was with great sadness that my mother passed away in July of 2016. She left behind a company, an honest estate agency, that I’m able to continue on with and build even further based on the same beliefs and family ethos that we started it with.

This is what I am about and although I am an experienced property expert, I also believe in providing something different, something that our clients remember us for and recommend to others.
