    I have a house in London, but I don't think even I would kick paying tenants out to put someone in who will pay more. I suspect the leaving tenants might leave some nasty surprises for me.

    As far as I can see, the tenant annecdotes raised at that hearing were what I would call 'moaning...

    I rent my property via a letting agent using their fully managed service, for various reasons I need to switch to another management company. I have given notice in writing to the current agents and I have received the response below. I believe it is only the first 6 months of the agreement that I could...

    Yes. The existing tenant would have vacated, which allows you to serve notice.

    If their service is crappy, complain about it.

    It's worrying that you think they're so crappy you'd be prepared to evict someone from their home and go without rent for a time to rid yourself of...

    I've heard of people putting the rent up, tenants deciding to leave due to increase, then free to switch, could this be an option? - is it legal?

    Thank you again for explaining this more clearly, I fear now they know I want to change they will be hard work from now on. I'm so annoyed at myself, I asked at the time they took it over what the notice was and was told I had to agree for minimum 6 months and then months notice, I'm currently trawling...

    Point 18 says that you cannot enter an agreement with the tenant within six months of the end of the term of this agreement with the agent. It doesn't say anything about the relationship with the agent itself.

    Point 19 says that if you break the agreement in point 18, you have to pay compensation...

    Evicting without cause? That's s21! What is most commonly used by private landlords to evict, it's the "for no reason at all" eviction route...

    Giving tenant notice, evicting them, probably ends your contract with agent. Otherwise you may find you are still liable to pay their...
