I am new to this forum and wanted some collective wisdom please. I am due to purchase a house with sitting tenants.
The estate agent involved in the purchase is also involved with the let and currently takes a monthly fee from the existing owner for the privilege. Once I own the house can I renegotiate the percentage taken by the estate agent?
Furthermore, can I get rid of the estate agent altogether and just get the tenants to pay me? The estate agent mentioned that when I complete I will need to come in to sign a contract to transfer the let on my name etc.
Advice much appreciated
