What you need to know about switching property managers

Published 01 May 2020 by Ivy Yu

Switching property managers isn’t as difficult or as expensive as many may think. There are  many misconceptions on when and how you can switch property managers, leading to owners clenching their teeth and bearing through terrible service, counting the days until either their agreement is over or their tenants move out. But this doesn’t have to be the case.

Don’t be stuck with a subpar property manager! If your property manager just isn’t cutting it and not undertaking the responsibilities listed in your agreement, this might be your calling to consider switching. After all, it’s a two-way street and there’s no reason to pay a portion of your rental income for poor service right? 

These are some of the most common misconceptions amongst property owners:

  • I have to wait until the tenancy is up before switching property managers
  • It will bring a massive change and disruption to my tenant
  • I will have to find new tenants for my property 
  • A new lease will have to be signed by my tenants

You can change property managers whenever you’re ready, with minimal disruption to both you and your tenants. If you’re worried that you’ll be causing inconvenience to your tenants, fret not. The Agency Agreement only ends the relationship between you and your current property manager, the relation between you and your tenant will still be going strong. So you can rest assured that everything will remain the same, just with a much better property manager. 

Many agencies usually have a notice period for ending an agreement that can range from 30-90 days depending on the state that you’re in.
