Martin & Co Pontefract are approved!


Pontefract letting agent Martin & Co is delighted to announce they have been accepted as a member of The National Approved Letting Scheme (NALS) the independent licensing scheme for letting agents.


Martin & Co Pontefract is the only letting agent in Pontefract and the surrounding area licensed by NALS.


What is NALS?


The National Approved Letting Scheme is the most respected and recognised accreditation scheme for letting agents, offering complete peace of mind for both landlords and tenants.


In order to be licensed by NALS Martin & Co Pontefract has to meet certain criteria, which include adhering to customer service standards, have client money protection and professional indemnity insurance, and offer independent redress for any unresolved complaints through the Property Ombudsman.


Licensed agents must also ensure that client monies are held separately from the bank accounts of the letting agency and this helps provide reassurance to both landlords and tenants that their funds are protected.


What does it mean for tenants?


Using a firm licensed by NALS has a lot to offer tenants, including genuine peace of mind regarding their rent and bond payments. Tenant monies are paid into a dedicated client account with all bonds then being registered with a recognised tenancy deposit protection scheme. Martin & Co Pontefract use the Deposit Protection Service (DPS) the only custodial scheme authorised by the Government to operate in England.


What does it mean for landlords?


Martin & Co Pontefract has agreed to meet certain service standards which start from our initial contact with you, and apply throughout the rental process, during marketing, in preparing the tenancy documentation, whilst the tenant is living in your property and when approaching the end of their tenancy. Throughout this time you can have confidence that a NALS agent will do their best to protect your investment and your income from that investment.


Make the smart choice…

…ask Martin & Co Pontefract to look after your property investments and enjoy the benefits of dealing with the only NALS approved letting agent in the Pontefract area.
