A lease that has been signed by both parties is a binding legal document. He cannot unilaterally make any changes to your already-agreed-upon contract.

Agents are so positive about 3 dogs easily finding a place. As a 'citizen I say "no". There are limited rentals here and in Denver. Lifelong residents are moving out of state.
These websites owned by one entity have overpriced houses and rents arbitrarily and landlords are drooling for cash.
The reality is not a pretty picture and to move here when greed has its fangs out would be ill-advised. My rent is going up and I will probably have to go. I will let you know when that happens as the landlord would probably allow 3 dogs. The house is only 760sq ft....

A good first step is figuring out what your home’s currently worth in the market. But, don’t set a standard price for all one bedroom homes, for instance. You should charge slightly different rents based on how desirable the unit.
Even if you make necessary research, you may not set the right price for your property. And such rental services, like I mentioned in web reference, can help you to handle it. When you post a property you set the price and when tenants apply for property they submit the price they would like to pay for it.

Karen Peyton answered:
Contact the agent's broker who can answer all of the questions you've posted here. In the meantime read your property management agreement (again,) especially the part about coordinating the exit of a tenant. Depending upon what it says, there may be no ball to drop.

Transferring your account to an agent within the same company is legal since your contract belongs/belonged to the broker and the agent is/was an extension of him or herself.

If two months delinquent, was the move due to the process of eviction? If an eviction will you pursue legally? If you pursue legally, can you add the $1K in additional damages to your suit?

Again, contact the person in charge - the agent's broker.

Good luck!
