The Leeds City office is by the famous Calls, just a few minutes’ walk from the amazing Victoria Quarter and Harvey Nichols.
First launched in 2008 the office covers the whole of Leeds City Centre and outwards into postcodes LS9, LS10, LS11 and LS12. You’ll find properties to rent in the heart of the city, and City Island, The Headrow, New York Street, East Leeds Link Road, Clarence Dock, Hunslet, Holbeck, Beeston, Armley, Wortley, Farsley Beck and more!
There are three Martin & Co Offices within the Leeds boundary; Leeds City, Leeds North and Leeds East. Our combined territory is quite diverse and we work together to provide an excellent letting service to our customers, and as individual businesses we have our own personalities, knowledge and expertise.
Leeds City accounts for around a third of all new jobs created by the UK's eight core cities. Excellent employment opportunities means there is a continual demand for all properties from small studios to large penthouse apartments, from small terraces to large detached houses. Described in the Lonely Planet Guide to Britain as "Knightsbridge of the North" it’s one of the most vibrant, cosmopolitan cities in Britain, hosting thriving night life, fine architecture, rich cultural heritage, lively arts, world class sport, and regular major events and exhibitions. Leeds is also ranked as one of the UK's top five retail destinations drawing thousands of people to the area.
Many of our Landlords live outside the city. Some have multiple properties in the same area, some have multiple properties but scattered around England, and then there are those who have a single investment property. All are equally important and we encourage them to keep their investment in good order. This way they will get the best return and good tenants.
The rental market is in a very good place and we have clients constantly calling to request viewings. We can always work with more properties and would encourage any Landlord to give us a try. We work on a window of less than four weeks from viewing to move in but many new enquirers become tenants within one to two weeks. The best was within a few hours!
