Northwood Stoke On Trent’s ‘We Switch You’ Scheme

Switching your Letting or Estate agent to Northwood Stoke is easy, and we’ll give you £250!* once your signed up and letting you property through us, and we wont charge any set-up fees.

With house sales, we will pay you £250 after the property has sold and exchanged.

How does ‘We Switch You’ work?

The “We Switch You” service allows you to swap the management of your property to us, whether you are selling a house, or renting, even if your tenant is still in-situ. All without any unnecessary hassle or complications.

So if your current Letting or Estate Agent has failed to provide the level of service they agreed to, or if they have significantly changed their terms, it’s unlikely that they will be able to hold you to them.

We can also confidentially review any documentation for you before you make any final decisions about changing agents.

If you are unhappy with your current letting or estate agent, then please give us a call now on 01782 636100 to find out what we can do to help you switch to us.


What to do next?

Dealing with the documentation

Its likely you signed ‘terms of business’ with your current agent, this should confirm:

  • How much notice you may be required to give – if any.
  • Whether you are tied in to a minimum initial period.
  • Whether a fee is due for ending the agreement and what that fee is.

Giving notice

If you decide to switch your property to Northwood Stoke you will need to:

  • Give notice to end your current arrangement
  • Confirm your instruction to us
  • Sign our terms of contract
  • Sit back and let us take care of the rest

The handover

Step 1: If you are selling a house, we will arrange pick up of keys, get your property listed and wait for interested buyers to call and view your property, all the way through to exchange.

If you are letting a property, we will contact your current agent and arrange a detailed handover on an agreed date.

Step 2: We will introduce ourselves to your tenant, provide them with our contact details, obtain keys and prepare the relevant documentation for the day of the handover.

Step 3: We will make sure that the tenancy deposit is re-registered under our membership for protection.

Step 4: We will arrange a property inspection with your tenant once the handover is complete. This will give us an opportunity to meet with your tenant to discuss any concerns.

Step 5: We will finalise and issue you and your tenant with your new Northwood documentation.

Your thank you gift

Once the above steps have been taken, we will then process your £250 thank you gift!

*If you then decide to swap again and place your property elsewhere within the first 12 months of switching to Northwood, all we ask is that you reimburse us with a repayment of £120 to contribute towards our administrative costs. This is only applicable for the guaranteed rent or Fully managed Service.

Please call us now on 01782 636100 so we can help you switch.
