Switching Managers

Switching Agents has never been easier!

Simply complete and sign the termination of your current property manager authority form and return it to us and we will take care of everything else for you. You don’t even have to notify your current Agent, we will do that for you.

Astute Property Management will:

  • 1 Contact your current Real Estate Agency or property manager and advise we are taking over management
              • We will obtain a copy of all current documentation relating to the property, specifically any current tenants and tenancy agreements.
  • 2 Advise the Tenants that we are taking over as the Managing Agent
  • 3 Conduct an inspection of the property at the time we take it over and advise you of any anomalies between your previous Agents most recent inspection and the current condition of the property.
  • 4 Notify any relevant authorities of the transfer of management (e.g.Bond centre, Tenancy Services)
  • 5 Take the best possible care of your Property and Tenants moving forward so you never have to switch again!

 

If your current Agent has a notice period in their Managing Agents Agreement that you have signed we will need to give them notice in accordance with that requirement, this is typically between 30 to 90 days. Some Agents may have a penalty if you are switching within the first 12 months of their agreement.

If you are unsure of your obligations, please contact us and we will review your current agreement and advise you on this.
