Choosing an Agent
When selling a property it does not matter to many homeowners which estate agent they use as long as the agent finds them a buyer at the right price. Ultimately if the buyer damages the property or fails to pay the mortgage, it is their property and their problem.
Choosing the right letting agent is much more important because you will be allowing a complete stranger to live in a property that is still yours. It therefore matters very much that the tenant looks after the property, and it matters very much that they pay the rent because it is still your property.
A bad tenant can cost an unfortunate Landlord thousands of pounds in legal fees, lost rent and dilapidations etc. Some Landlords assume that the more agents they instruct, the more they increase their chances of finding a good tenant. In our view, the more agents you instruct, the more you increase your chances of finding a bad tenant. There is nothing wrong with speaking to several agents before deciding which to use; but only instruct one.
Remember, agents generally only receive their commission when the tenant they introduce takes occupation. As a result most agents prioritise sole agency properties because their fee is assured when they find a tenant. They also know they have the time to do their job properly and professionally. For an agent to make a concerted effort to find a tenant only to discover that a competitor has already found one is particularly frustrating when the tenant invariably blames the agent for wasting their time.
A less reputable agent may decide they cannot afford to wait for a good tenant and will therefore try to persuade you to accept any tenant simply to secure their commission.
Unfortunately it takes considerably longer and can cost considerably more to get a tenant out than it does to get them in.
