    Default ending a rental agreement (owner)

    I am after some advice on what I should say eg to my property manager.

    I just don't like the way things are getting done etc so from what i gather it's 21 days (I think) but they don't respond to emails etc and being interstate I can't always answer when they call and vice versa.

    I picked someone then they quit with no warning! So I haven't got the one who I picked so I'm just after some advice thanks heaps (my tenant is finally fantastic etc older and great she pays in advance and I'm thinking I might even go private again I don't know

    Just put it in writing. Have a look at your property management contract to work out your termination notice, then write a letter that you are taking your property elsewhere. State who you are transferring management to and they should transfer all paperwork and bond etc to the new agency. In my experience property managers move around/quit all the time, so I suggest finding an agency that you are happy with the management...

    It's usually 30 days but as pp said check the specific time they have on their agency agreement , it's very easy just notice in writing and tell them who to transfer all the details too ( be very careful managing it yourself - unless you are 100% up to date and know your tenancy regulations I wouldn't do it yourself, especially after what happened last time!) but do find an agent you trust

    If you get a new agent they will arrange the transfer, including notifying the current agent. You shouldn't have to do that part yourself if you pick a new agency.
    In all the RE offices I've worked at, the agent taking over would first send a takeover letter by fax, then they'd email it, then regular post (to make sure it got there). They usually gave a few days notice that they would collect the paperwork/keys/remotes etc in person.
