PM has been terrible, so I have issued notice to terminate agreement, 30 days. I offered to pay out the full 30 days commission, even though the property only has a tenant for less than a week of that 30 days as the Lease is up and no new tenant has been secured (or any attempt made to even advertise until the day I gave notice!). PM is refusing to hand over, would rather take 1 week commission and do all work associated with Exits, re-listing, etc....?? And threatening me with advertising costs now, etc (agreement says NIL, so don't think they can). What I need to know is, can I co-manage this property for the remainder of the 30 day period? I know my new agent can't, but can they stop me from being involved? The contract states: 4.1 The lessor must "not let or manage the property as principal, or appoint any person to let or manage the property other than the agent for the term of this agreement." I ask because I have been told I am no longer able to attend the Exit Inspection this week. Am I within my rights to attend this? Or can I do it myself instead?? I am concerned about it - when I first asked to go (prior to terminating) I was told it would be 6am Christmas Day, but this was changed when I said that was fine. Also, can I collect the keys (PM doesn't have any at present as they gave their set to tenant as well!)? I am considering changing the locks and not giving keys if they get them as, while it may seem over the top, I have heard stories re. the PM in the past that I did not pay much attention to but with issues lately I now have very real concerns about what may be done while it is vacant. Is there something that would prevent me from doing this? I have a standard REIQ contract/conditions agreement. If I request copies of all Applications so that I can approve or not, do they have to send them to me? I don't want a bad tenant put in out of spite! And can I advertise the property for rent? As long as I pass on all applications (commission), etc? Anyone with any experience with this?
