    Flat share full management agency in London

    Hi,

    Is anyone able to recommend a good efficient and proactive letting agency to full manage a flat in London renting individual rooms as flat share and not as whole property?
    It will be good to have the full management service including the maintenance service.

    Thank you for your help.

    It's site policy not to allow public criticism of people or companies, so you should probably ask for private messages.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        If you rent rooms individually, you have to pay the council tax.
        Make sure any deposits are protected individually
        London agents seem to have a preference to a sign tenants to joint tenancy agreements, and then to assign them as people move out and in, getting the new tenant to "pay" the leaving tenant's deposit - don't do that.

          'Need to' because you want to, or because they are asking you to?

          A new tenancy is different from an ID check and some data gathering (which seem fairly harmless and may be well-intentioned). A new tenancy is not necessary. Only sign a new agreement if you want one....

          Hi, again, welcome.

          Just tell the agency that you do not wish to sign a new lease thank you very much, nor do you wish to complete an application form for your home.

          My guess is that the application form is part of a rental guarantee insurance that the agent have offered the...

          That the agent or indeed landlord changes does not mean you need to sign or otherwise agree to a new tenancy agreement. Nor any changes to the tenancy agreement. Nor any application form, nor supply ID. (PS You might ask agent first for proof of ID: That'll surprise them, but clearly they think it's...

          There are plenty of valid reasons why the landlord may have changed agent. I have done it myself. The outgoing agent could be closing down, putting their charges up. Or they may just have been judged not to be very good at their job.

          The new agent is right (and obliged) to check that you...

          by meyou5ick
          Dear all,

          I was letting my place to tenants that were sourced by this estate agent. The estate agent however misrepresented myself and misled the tenants about what's included in the monthly rental cost. The tenant had complained to the agent however, I had to pay for 6 months of services...

          It depends on the terms of your agreement with them.
          My agreement with my letting agent wouldn't allow them to do that in anticipation of me owing them money, only if I actually owe them money.

          They have now withheld my rental payment (last one of this contract) because they think I won't pay them once I go private contract from next month. They surely cannot hold my rent just because they think I'll not pay after the end of tenancy if I plan to keep the tenants?...
