Guide to Switching Letting Agents

Posted on Monday, June 6, 2022

This two-minute read looks at why landlords should change letting agents and how it can benefit them.    Did you know that lots of people pay more for their phone bills, car insurance or Wi-Fi simply because the thought of changing providers is too stressful? This is like a lot of landlords – they stick with the same letting agent they’ve used for years just because it’s easier to stay put.  We hate change. Why rock the boat? Sure, the boat may be leaking and have a dodgy fish smell, but is it really that bad?  Well, dodgy boat clichés aside, we’re here to tell you that yes, it really is that bad. You could be making more rental income, have a better working relationship and not have to put up with ignored emails or calls if you simply switch letting agents (preferably to us here at Greyfox, we’re very good).
