My letting agent has been taking £39.00 a month for doing nothing as far as I can see.
Our tenant rang me on Monday because there was a problem with the central heating boiler. My husband arranged for a plumber to go in today and the heating is working.
I have had this tenant for 6 years with no problems.
I was going to email my agent and “say that I want to take over the running of my property.”
I will need another tenancy agreement between myself and the tenant and they need to change the direct debit to my bank account.
I don’t have a copy of the tenancy agreement so I don’t know if she took a deposit or not. You can see now why I don’t want to give them anymore of my money for doing nothing.
I wasn’t going to ask for a deposit as they are good tenants.
If they leave I will look at employing another agent then.
Q1. Do you think that I am going about this the right way?
Q2. Do you have an up to date tenancy agreement that I could use?
