    My Estate Agent has resigned due to an argument we have had What do I need to do?

    The Estate Agent that was managing my property has resigned because I have told him what I think of his service.
    I will take over the management of the property as the tenant has only another nine months left on this tenancy,

    I do not have a contract with the Estate Agent - yet another thing he couldn't be bothered to do!

    The property was up for sale with the agent when someone came along and asked to rent it for three years which we eventually agreed to.

    I have no problem paying the agent his fees, but unfortunately he hasn't done what he said he would i.e. I have to remind them about inspections etc
    because unless I do, they don't get done.

    Please help me to take over, what do I need to do. What documents do I have to complete and what do I need from the failed agent?

    Many thanks

    What documents do you have regarding the tenancy ?? When did the last fixed term start?

    (e.g. tenancy agreement, deposit details & protection info, EPC, GSC, inventory, photos, tenant application form, proof of service of "How to Rent", copies of "Right to Rent" check paperwork etc etc etc..)

    Have you written (yes, WRITTEN!) to tenant to inform them agent is no longer involved & they should be paying you (provide bank details) and your contact details for any issues & problems?

    HOW did they resign? In writing ?? (Hope so..)

    [When I first met my agent she told me she fires any landlord she finds doing anything dodgy: I decided there & then she was the agent for me..] {NB I'm not for a minute suggesting you have done anything dodgy...}
