  • Nottingham letting agents

    Hi everyone,

    I am a new landlord and would really appreciate some advice. I want to let out my property in Nottingham but now live about two hours away. Hence, I am looking at finding a letting agency to fully manage the property.

    Has anyone here had any good or bad experiences with any local letting agents? I really don't want to pay for a fully managed service and then end up chasing people around myself. Any feedback would be great.

    Thanks for your help!

    I've heard good things about Comfort Lettings. Added bonus: One of the partners is member of this forum.

        Try Rex Gooding in West Bridgford. His daughter runs it now and she's RICS qualified as well. Very approachable.
        The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

            My wife and I are expats who have been renting our property through an agent for 5 years. We currently own a four bedroom property (for bedrooms including a loft extensions) In October 2016, the previous tenants move out and the current occupants moved in. We were sent the documents with a recommendation...

            You paid 10% of what on top of a management fee?

            What does your contract say about this? If the contract makes no mention of a "get out" fee then it will cost you nothing to dispense with their services.

            Is there a notice period for cancelling the contract with the...

            That would depend wholly on the terms of your contract with the agent. There's no "standard" procedure I'm afraid....

            Good afternoon

            Thank you for your excellent advice. I meant about compensating the agent. This is the question in a better way. At the beginning of the tenancy we paid 10% for a finders fee / advertising / searches etc as well as a management fee taken from the rent. If we decide to cancel...

            Sorry not sure your question makes a lot of sense. Why would you have to compensate tenants for you changing agent? Apologies if I am misreading this?

            If we were to change the agent (the contract end on the 28th August) would be be tied and have to compensate the tenants until that date?...

            A few things here:

            1) you explicitly said above the issue was distance. You can understand why I thought therefore the issue was distance.
            2) the average compensation of the ombudsman is completely irrelevant. What matters is your specific case which could be over or under the average....

            The issue is not really about distance. We are in a dilemma. My wife seems to think that if we make a complaint the agent can cancel our contract. This would mean finding a new agent and paying fees etc. Monies we do not have. We have spoken to the Ombudsman who informed us that we should have been...

            I dont understand why distance makes an issue with you raising the behaviour of the agent with their professional body?
