Should I sell or risk tenants buying at undervalue price?9:08 AM, 25th September 2019

I’ve just started with a Letting Agent and my new tenant, doesn’t want to stop with them. They were a bit terrible to them, not great with me, although Hats off to them, they did seem to locate a very good tenant, which did cost me £800 ouch.
Their small print (big company) says months rent + Vat £810 Ouch for me to leave the Agent, but retain tenant.
The tenants know I’m good having had the tenant before there 12 years and I do think they will be there 10 years +.
So it is my great tenants that wish to pre-empt the move, they do not like the agent and are definitely leaving this house after their 6 months up. Now they’ve met me (had to because of problems), and my builders etc., They want to stay with me in the same bungalow, but they don’t want to deal with the agent. Lots of 20 year old kids running the show, and I just thought I was a Landlord before this debacle-I didn’t realise I was so good ha ha and experienced.
Please don’t anyone tell me I should be running them myself, I know all that, been doing it 20 years, one feels like he needs to do a few hours less a week.
