Hi everyone,

Looking for a bit of advice.

We normally sign a 6 month TA with our estate agent for their tenant find service and then let it go into a periodic agreement.

I've noticed that this time they are looking to sing the tenant up to a 12 month contract, not sure if this was requested by the tenant.

It's a 3 bed detached house in England. In today's climate, I'm having alarm bells ringing and thinking it should only be a 6 month contract .

It's a jointly owned property with my wife and she is happy to go for a 12 month contract.
Obviously, I dont want to upset her, but just wondering what unforeseen problems we could be letting ourselves in for if we agree to a 12 month contract verses a 6 month contract.

Would love to hear the thoughts from the professionals before we proceed.

Any advice greatly appreciated as the tenant is due to move in next week. I do trust the estate agent as she has never made a bad call since we started using them years ago, they turn away a lot of people before they will even let them view the house.
