  • There is no such thing as joint agency, it is either sole or multi, I would recommend to go multi but only with one other agent(So it kind of is joint), but legally to cover your self should the new agent sell your property you do not want to leave yourself open to having the first agent claiming their fee as well as your initial agent, so sign a multi, that covers you and if in say 4 weeks you want to ditch the initial agent you can with normally 14 days notice and choose a different one, does that make sense? The benefits of choosing another agent are:- 1.Give your current agent a wake up call 2.The new agent will probably have some different clients that the other agent doesn't have, but choose a different one that markets in some nearby towns too or are on different websites. Lastly make sure you only keep one agents board, as back to back boards can make you look a bit desperate. Hope this helps regards Phil(Snr Branch Manager) Ward&Partners-Sheerness

  • I would say not - can give the impression of some desperation. You are better removing it from one provider and moving across to another if you are having some problems. That's my opinion.
