    Pull it out of the ground and lay it on the floor?

    If its secured to the house, borrow a ladder and remove?

      Phone them 4 times daily.

        To enforce them to remove it, the only option is to try your luck in court.
        I would do as suggested in the first reply.
        Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

          It's not even a month yet! There's calendars and schedules, rotas and appointment books to maintain... plus all the logistics. It's not easy.

          Be patient.

          I'm sure they'll want their sign back.

          Maybe try to focus on the truly important things in life? Heath, happiness, fulfilment.

            I eventually did that after buying my own last home, after having phoned the agents on numerous occasions; and after the thing had been lying on my drive for another couple of weeks I phoned to let them know it would be going on my bonfire at the weekend. Mysteriously it vanished that afternoon.

              Pull it up and ditch it in the estate agents doorway if their close enough to walk round to.

                These signs tend to get sorted by a company acting for the agents. There is one company by me that does all the signs for all the local agents.

                I had a similar thing happen with a for sale sign after I had bought a property. The agents had been a right pain towards the end on the sale so I wasn't too happy with them to start with. It took two months for them to remove the sign. I phoned, emailed etc and was promised many times that they would remove it but they didn't. In the end I phoned them up and said not to worry and that I would drop the sign off at their office that morning to help them out. A van arrived that afternoon to remove it!

                  Take it down: Walk round to their office and have a VERY LOUD BLAZING ROW with them in front (if possible) of their customers about the quality of their "customer diss-service", leaving the sign on the most senior person's desk...

                    Love it!!!

                    As a ground floor flat owner with the front garden in my demise, these signs are a pain in the backside. Power to the people..........

                      The "board" these days is usually corrugated plastic. Very flimsy. The post is usually sturdier, pushed in the ground or tied to a gate post with nylon straps. Great advertising for the agents.

                      With a sharp wind, or a step ladder and a kitchen knife, the board might float away.

                        Why be the bigger person when you can act like a petulant child.

                          They make excellent impromptu sledges, right up there with sitting with your legs down the armholes of a snorkel parka and steering using the hood...
