Switching to us

Home > Landlords > Switching to us



One of the most common misunderstandings in property management is that once a landlord has engage a property manager to manage their property, they are bound to them. However, that is not the case, in fact, it can be quite a simple process to make the switch to another management company.

We can arrange for the transfer of management of your property, even if there is a fixed term lease in place. You don’t need to wait for your tenant to vacate to make the switch! There are no costs incurred from our office and your current agent can’t apply penalties or transfer costs unless you agreed to this in your management agreement. If they do, talk to us and we may have a solution.

At John Ireland Real Estate, we can handle the property management switch on the landlord’s behalf. The last thing a landlord wants to do is risk being persuaded to stay with an underperforming management agency. Especially when the process to switch can be as painless as signing some paperwork.

Once we have your authority, we can notify your current managing agent of the transfer and arrange to collect all the relevant documentation to effectively manage the property on your behalf. You do not even need to pick up the phone.


  1. Sign our termination of managing agent letter.
  2. Appoint us as managing agent with a signed management authority.
We do all the rest to ensure a smooth transfer for you with minimal disruption to your tenant.

As soon as we receive the termination letter, and our signed agency agreement and we will liaise with your existing management agent and tenant. We will take care of everything from the transfer of documentation, collection of keys, arrange an initial inspection with your existing tenant, collect your file and take care of any outstanding issues including any rental arrears.

Simply complete your details on the contact page link (www.johnirelandre.com.au/contact) and one of our property managers will be in touch with you shortly to discuss your property.
