Is Your Letting Agent Financially Sound?

Is Your Letting Agent Financially Sound?

Dont trust your most valuable asset to a failing business….... Over the last few years, Estate agents have gone bust in record numbers and so many more have added lettings to try to stay afloat. Residential Lettings & Management is our only business and requires a completely different skill set from estate agency.Are you worried about how financially sound your current agent is? How long after the rent has been paid does it take for your agent to pay it over to you? Please pop in to see us at 1 Charing Cross (on the corner of Charing Cross and Duke Street) and we’ll happily explain the best practices that should be adopted. We’ll tell you why we’re accredited by the National Approved Letting Scheme (NALS) the Government sponsored regulatory body; why we carry Client Money Protection; why we’re a member of the TPO; why we carry Professional Indemnity Insurance; why we’re registered with the Information Commissioners Office etc. Phew...is that enough? No. Ok. we’ll tell you why we were the founding agent of the SAFE AGENT Scheme in Norwich. Why as part of our terms of business we undertake to pay to our Landlords the net rent within 4 Days of our receiving it, We can talk about why with over 180 offices nationwide, Martin & Co is the UK’s leading Lettings and Property Management Specialist.While we’re at it, ask us how comprehensive our referencing is and how it is that we’re able to show you the References when other agents hide behind the Data Protection Act. And while we’re on our hobby horse, how good is your agent at the actual property management side? If the answer is “Not Very”, then come and talk to us. We will do exactly what we promise to do, starting with the obvious – we’ll actually undertake regular property inspections and will send you a written report immediately afterwards. There are no extra charges for this – in fact our fees are completely transparent and are all inclusive.
