  1. Hi there! I need your help please, I am a student and to complete my masters thesis I need to get 100 answers to my survey. This survey is part of my masters in Marketing and Business Development and aims to better understand the perception of landlords, homeowners and property managers on home repair companies and their online presence. Could you please answer it? It should take you less than 5 minutes. Your answers are anonymous and there are no right or wrong answers. Thank you in advance for your time, it means a lot to me! To answer the survey please hit the link: https://f
  2. Hi all, Just interested in if you are using an agent and your thoughts on what is an acceptable percentage for them to take. I know this will be subjective to the service they deliver. My side I pay 10% fees for full management and rent protection guarantee included.
  3. It may come to nothing but adjacent to one of our BTL properties a Spanish company has an office and wants to rent it for staff long term. We have agreed and are very happy with a premium rent but they have now asked about buying instead. They have offered quite a bit more than we thought so we are not unhappy but they want us to pay an agent friend of theirs in Spain as the sales agent, it is no problem for us and seems a cosy internal arrangement for them and we are still considerably better off with the deal. Can we or rather our solicitor just pay an overseas agent direct?
  4. Hello, If someone can please advise- my actual end date for the lodger's agreement is 28th August. I plan to move out all my stuff by around 25th and spend the next day or so to clean the place. Now the letting agent sent me an email to say that they need to carry out a check-out inspection on 24th or 25th as they do not work on 28th. That involves them taking pictures of all items to see if there are any damages. I am not comfortable with this as I don't have time to clear and clean the place by then. I am very pushed with time as I work as well on top of trying to pack my stuff.
  5. I have two properties which I let through a local Letting Agent , I have recently visited both properties to do minor work , the first property informed me that they had just signed a new Tenancy Agreement , but were asked to go to the Letting Agents office to sign, so no inspection of the property was undertaken , the second property's Agreement ran out in May 2014 and has not been renewed , again no inspection has ever been made at this property I sent an email to the Agents telling them that I no longer wanted them to act for me , they have replied stating that they are entitled to a withd
  6. My letting agent approached me about a month ago with a request from my tennant as to whether I would consider selling him my property. We have since agreed a price and appointed solicitors with the agents acting as a go between. The agents very belatedly (yesterday) sent me through a sole agency sales agreement for signature, and are now seeking their full agents commision on the sale of the property. Whilst they have acted as a go between, I never asked them to sell the property for me. Reading the sole agency agreement I don't see that I need to sign it, as I already have a sale agreed.
  7. Hi I have two properties managed by a letting agent since October 2013. At the time when I signed an open ended standard management agreement with the agent, both properties were already rented out. The tenants were previously found by the same agent under a tenant find only service (one of the tenants was already in occupation for 1 year, the other one for several years). One tenant left in June 2014, one is still in occupation. No new contracts were issued to the existing tenants when the agent started the management service, the agent only sent letters informing them of the
  8. Please could I ask your advice with the following. I know a lot of people ask this, but the answer usually says : it depends on your contract. So I have given some details from the contract. We are letting out our house through a letting agent. Its a full management agreement, however, we are finding it easier to deal directly with the tenants, than keep going through the agents. They just add confusion and delays. Because of this and to save money, we'd like to terminate our contract with the letting agents. The Termination clause of the contract between us and the letting agent says :
  9. I am a trainee lettings negotiator and I would like to hear from landlords what they really want from an agent... What are your needs and expectations from a letting agent? What can a letting agent do to stand out from others, in your opinion? Would an incentive attract you? Please advise
