Making the Switch: A Landlord’s Guide to Changing Property Agents

In the fast-paced world of real estate, the landscape is constantly evolving. Landlords are often faced with tough decisions, one of which is whether to stick with their current property agent or make the switch to a new one. While the process may seem daunting, we caught up with Marcus Di Rollo, Lettings Director at Gilson Gray, who says it’s actually much more straightforward than initially perceived; it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Firstly, let’s address the initial assumption that changing property agents is a hassle. We understand that many landlords are hesitant to make the switch due to fears of complicated paperwork, potential disruptions to their rental income, and concerns about finding a reliable replacement. However, the reality is that with the right guidance, changing agents can be a seamless and beneficial process.

Step 1 – Obtain the required notice period with your current property agents.

At Gilson Gray, we understand your perspective as a landlord – you have invested time, money, and effort into your properties, and you understandably want the potential transition to be as smooth as possible, reducing any impact on tenants and rental income. We will tailor our approach to reassure and demonstrate the ease of the switching process.

Step 2 – Give your current property agents notice that you will no longer be needing their services.

So, why Gilson Gray? Our award winning Lettings team offer a full suite of property management services, high quality and effective tenant communication, and access to a wide network of potential renters. We aim to minimise landlord stress and maximise rental income through support, advice and guidance which can be found either on our website or by speaking to a member of our team.

In addition, our dedicated team will assist you in the handling of relevant paperwork and coordinating tenant communication. We are well equipped to handle every aspect of the transition by leveraging technology and our in-house efficient processes, so that you can have peace of mind.

Clear and open communication is essential and something we pride ourselves on. This includes providing updates on property listings, tenant transitions, and any potential challenges that may arise. By fostering a transparent and collaborative relationship, we aim to build trust and reassure our landlords that their best interests are being prioritised.

Step 3 – We will contact your current agent and arrange a changeover date. We organise the complete process making your move to Gilson Gray seamless and hassle free!
