We've been letting out several properties for a few years now through a letting agent but now that one tenant has put in notice to leave we are considering letting this property ourselves to see how it works out. The current tenant is due to move out in ten day but is it acceptable for us to advertise the property locally now and ask the tenant to allow us access to show round any prospective new tenants?

Most tenancy agreements will include a clause to that effect, but even if yours does, it's not enforceable by law. So be sure to try to get on their good side by offering to give plenty of notice of visits, only coming round at times convenient to the tenant etc.
