Property managers are not regulated under statutes, so the deal with you and them is contained entirely in the contract. If the contract provides for one months notice to cancel then you can do so. You should look to see if the contract requires that they have exclusive rights to rent during the currency of the agreement, and if not, you can ask another agency to find tenants. As for the extra charges, if the agreement does not provide for these then you don't have to pay them. They normally get paid from the tenant paying the letting fees and a percentage of the rent so the charges are carried by them.
