There is one very big problem with renting a property via linley and simpson and that is the 2 month notice period you contractually have to give when you vacate a property. I have rented a number of properties in the past and never before have i ever seen a 2 months notice clause. Its dreadful when your next move is hopefully to buy a house as we will probably end up having to simultaneously pay a mortgage and rental for a month - another cost you just dont need along with stamp duty and other fees.

If there had been more choice on the market when i had been looking for a rental i would have gone with another agency on finding out this very un-customer friendly clause. I dont ever recommend linley and simpson because i find their practice out of touch and unfair on the tenant.
What agent could do to change your mind?
You need to amend your 2 month tenqncy notice clause to 1 month in line with comon practice amongst all other mainstream lettings agents.

The clause requiring a tenant to serve two months notice to terminate the tenancy is clearly stated in our agreement. It is transparent and is in no way hidden from any prospective tenants.
The landlord always has to give the tenant two months notice for possession. We are only trying to create parity and fairness on both sides.
