    End of tenancy agreement, want to dump agents but keep tenants - HELP!!!!!!!

    HI! - I currently let out my property through an agent on a fully managed service, The tenancy is due to end on February 1st 2013, I have been very unhappy with the agents but happy with the tenant so I would like to take over the management of the property myself, My question is will I have to pay the agents a fee at the end of the tenancy if I keep the same tenants they introduced to me in the property even though the 1 year agreement is ended? The contract I have is from {Mod - name removed} but through {Mod - name removed} the agent, The contract seems very complex and as I stated above I have been very unhappy with the agents and do not wish to renew with them or give them more money to keep the existing tenant.

    Any help or advice you could give would be much appreciated.


    many thanks
    Steve

    What does the agreement you signed WITH THE AGENTS say? It is all in there. You can still dispute a term if you think it is unfair, but the fact you accepted it when you signed that agreement, doesnt help.

    Its quite likely that they will have a clause regarding termination fees when you keep a tenant they provided.

      Please remove names in your post.. Unwise, possibly against forum rules.

      I cannot read what YOUR agreement with the agent says on the matter - suggest you read it. I would expect it will say you carry on paying them for THAT tenant even after you sack agent.
