HI everyone- A new landlord of ours has decided to use us for the management of all of his properties. The current LA have been notified and I am contacting them to discuss. There are 2 properties both in existing tenancies with several months to go. The existing LA uses the TDS scheme whilst we use the DPS scheme. I believe the first step is for the landlord to notify the tenants of the change of letting agent - I planned to draft a letter for them along with a section 48 for the serving of notices. The current contracts state the existing agent for this. What I am unclear on though as this is something new to us is that we have really detailed inventories- would the agent be obliged to pass their inventories to me to use for inspections and end of tenancy? Whilst the existing contract remains do I need to create an addendum to it and if so can anyone advise on the content of this - we use letlink for our stationary. Sorry for so many questions - wrt to payments and the standing order - should I advise the tenants to cancel the existing and then to commence the new one with us? thanks in advance!
