Letting agent dismissal guide


For landlords wanting to end their management contract with their letting agents - and maybe bring a claim

Letting agents can be a boon to landlords and a good agent can definitely be worth the money.

However, it has to be said that not all agents are satisfactory, and many landlords come to Landlord Law because they are unhappy with their agent's service and want to manage their properties themselves.

The problem then is - how can they do this in a legal manner?  And what options are available to you if you want to complain about your agent?

Frequently letting agents do not want to be 'got rid of'.  While tenants found by them are in residence, they often consider they have a right to manage (and be paid for managing) the property.  Often their agency terms and conditions will include clauses providing for payment of their commission - even if they are no longer managing the property!

How can a landlord deal with this?

This 'trail' is a guide to help you to terminate your agency agreement legally, in a manner least likely to cause you to suffer losses.

We also consider whether you may be entitled to bring a claim against your agents for compensation and give some preliminary advice.
