There is a misconception that you have to wait for a lease to end to change property managers. You may be surprised to learn that this is not accurate.

Anytime is a good time to switch agents if you are unhappy. However, we ideally recommend changing managing agents mid lease cycle. This allows your new agent the opportunity to view your investment and re-appraise in preparation for the renewal.
Not at all; in fact, making the move will benefit both you and your tenant. If you’re having trouble communicating with the outgoing agency, it’s possible the tenant is having similar issues as well. All that will change for the tenant is where they pay their rent to.
No, the existing lease stays in place and so do your tenants. Basically the only thing that changes is the agent who manages your property.
Due to inadequate communication, a lack of market expertise, and a high staff turnover rate, a landlord may exit an agency. This is more than fair enough as these factors are likely to have a detrimental impact on both the investment and the tenants.
As we’ve mentioned above, it’s surprisingly easy to move onto better property management. The first step is to choose an agent that fits your criteria.
We recommend not always choosing the least expensive agent. This is because the cheapest is sometimes the most costly in the long run. It’s important to be mindful that inadequate management might lead to unexpected expenses that can be fairly large, depending on the circumstances.
Your new property manager should follow a professional process, and this includes some fundamental property management duties and/or assistance. You should expect the following protocols and procedures in this order:
There are some standard requirements in documentation and other items which need to be taken care of in the transition from one property management firm to another. These include:
Once you have decided to move your management over to another agency the new agent should have an outcome with the date and time of collection of two to three days.
Your new incoming agent will handle the process from start to finish, whilst keeping you updated every step of the way. This means you can feel totally comfortable about the entire situation.
