Just confirming this won't cause me any headaches or additional costs and is generally the right thing to do. I signed a managing authority with an REA, good history of managing properties with people I know, seemed to have the right answers and informed on the area my property is located with a good track record there. A week later they leave unexpectedly (per an email sent to other people but not myself) and a new property manager appears, they had the keys etc already so I thought I would stick with them, but so far. The photos are terrible, didn't even bother to open all the blinds or turn lights on so they are dark. Write up is worse, grammatically wrong, mistakes like "600ml oven" and only three lines long. No effort has been put in at all. The asking rent seems too high, I questioned this briefly and she said "we always start high and go from there" - was going to correct this tomorrow, instead I am thinking of grabbing the keys off them and saying goodbye. I have signed the managing authority but not received a counter signed agreement/copy and no open houses have taken place although one is booked for this Saturday. Will there be charges to cancel this agreement? I would presume not as I have not received a signed copy - therefore we don't have a "contract". - am I right here? Would anyone give her the benefit of the doubt to do the weekend open, doubt there is time to get another agent now. Am I been harsh?
