This help sums all options offered by the theme regarding Contact Forms.

Contact forms for agent /  user show if:

a. Admin assigns agent to property manually from admin

agent responsible

b. Theme assigns agent and / or user responsible to the property submitted by  the  user from front end (see this help http://help.wpresidence.net/2015/12/16/how-to-manage-user-or-agent-options-in-the-theme-about-subscriber-user-level/
