    I have used Martin & Co for the last 3 years and in this time I have had consistent battles with them just to complete simple tasks. Firstly, one thing they have done well is rent collection. My rent has been paid into my account more or less on time each month, that is where the positives stop.

    Any time any maintenance work is required it is never managed correctly or in a timely manner. I pay them a percentage of my rental income each month and always feel like I need to manage them to manage my property which surely defeats the object. I have received reports from the tenants that... (read more)

    Comments on the Agents fees

    “THE FEES ARE NOT UNREASONABLE IF THE SERVICE YOU ARE RECEIVING IS POSITIVE. SADLY, I PAY MARTIN & CO EACH MONTH AND GET NOTHING POSITIVE IN RETURN.”


    What could Martin & Co do to change your mind??

    “I have given Martin & Co several opportunities to change my mind. There have now been too many instances of being let down (I can\'t remember a positive experience when having to deal with them).”

    Absolutely disgraceful service. I would recommend that people stay away from this agency. They charge ridiculous fees (much more than other agents around), do not answer phones or reply to answer messages, they take weeks to reply to emails. They tell you things by word of mouth, but fail to mention that for it to stand, they need it in writing. They don't turn up to do inspections or viewings when they say they will. And they came round to the flat I am renting today and didn't even lock the door behind themselves! Absolutely disgusting customer service. I'm not surprised they have a high staff turnover!

    What could Martin & Co do to change your mind??

    “Make fees cheaper, actually call people back, give a better service as we have paid them!”

    I recently used Martin & Co to find a tenant for a recently purchased flat. The first meet went well but from then on communications were difficult. I had to chase constantly, either by phone or email and felt that I was leading the whole process, which for a first-time landlady is not what I wanted. After the initial meet, I went into the office to hand over keys and was given such a hard sell to try to get me to upgrade to full management option which was appalling. I got the distinct impression that they did not know what they were doing regarding paperwork. I could have done the majority of the work without them. The only good comment I can make is the tenants seem very good.

    I would not recommend using these agents.

    Comments on the Agents fees

    “EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT THEY DID.”


    What could Martin & Co do to change your mind??

    “By being supportive to a first-time landlady and certainly communicate more efficiently.”

    martin and co seem to have a tendency to charge ridiculous fees to do virtually nothing. I was left in a mouldy, insecure house house with no heating or hot water for a year with a baby. The house then got broken into (admittedly not martins fault) however, they refused to repair the door that had been kicked in saying they didn't believe me that i had been burgled even though i provided them with a police crime reference number, thus leaving the house insecure. They also outright denied that the boiler had broken down and insisted on charging me £70 call out fee for the contractor to come... (read more)

    I felt i had to write a review regarding the professionalism of this branch of Martin & Co, We had put the management of our apartment in the hands of Martin & Co back in February 2014 we have had to chase all but 2 rent payments, they never call you back, if you do get hold of them they say it will be in your account in a couple of days i am getting constantly frustrated

    What could Martin & Co do to change your mind??

    communication with this office was unprofessional and rude. With the manageress being snappy when you asked questions she could not answer, and when i rang back to complain about her attitude, the receptionist was laughing on the phone saying ''This woman wants to complain about how you spoke to her'' These people do not know how to speak to or how to treat their customers

    What could Martin & Co do to change your mind??

    “Nothing the agent said would allow me to recommend middlewood road office. Would strongly recommend using another office. I rang the campo lane office who where excellent in their communication skills and very professional in their behaviour”

    I retired and moved abroad last September and decided to rent out my house leaving it in the hands of Martins Lettings. What a bad move that turned out to be, they were careless, rude, sarcastic, unhelpful, and in the end I decided it would be easier to sell it. I can be specific if required I'm not sure how many words I can type. They have just sold my house in April, and even though I was not involved in a chain and the buyer had a mortgage in place it has only just completed on 12th August. It's been a nightmare from start to finish, rent not arriving at my bank, fees being charged wrongly, repairs being left for weeks (tile off roof) I feel if I had left my house with anyone else I would have continued to rent it out and leave my investment in the UK, but as it is I've jumped ship and sold it. It has cost me thousands.

    This agent was late on several occasions and tried have charged me for a check out they have not done. They have also claimed for 5 days of rent when they are only owed 3. However when I originally queried these 3 days I was told I would not have to pay. This company has defrauded the Council and now I have to take them to a small claims court. Absolutely disgusting behaviour, awful communication and very RUDE staff members.

    What could Martin & Co do to change your mind??

    I had to write one last review about this Company and now as an ex-tenant. Please do not believe anything they say. We were promised a very long let on a property. After a year we had notice - the owner wanted it back. (Not all Martin's fault I suppose). After another 3 months the property is up for rent again - the owner doesn't need it. How stupid is that and what an upheaval it was for us and rather costly as well. Martin's should have checked this was really a long term let in the first place. This is just a warning for any prospective customers.

    This agency is abusive in its practices. We rented a house from them, a lovely house, and right off at the beginning, something felt odd. They asked for too much information, the process of signing the contract took weeks, they refused to accept papers from the University that are meant to be delivered digitally and instead accepted copies that had in big chunky letters saying they were not valid. But because the house was really nice, we decided to keep giving them the information and we finally managed to sign for the house.

    It started with the apparent state of the house and the real... (read more)

    Avoid at all costs.
    We rented through Martin and Co as we were trying to cut costs and Hamptons was expensive. We had been with hamptons for 3 years before we actually moved into our house but Martin and Co can off cheaper and now we know why?
    "*"

    They never took a proper inventory when the tennant moved in which looking at other reviews on this website is a common occurance with this branch.

    The tennant had a dog with out permission which caused damage by chewing and digging, they never cleaned the house. The house was never properly inspected if it had these issues... (read more)

    shocking, terrible, rude, incompetant, disrespectful. use all of those words to describe these guys.

    the inventory was made up. items on there that were not in the flat. Or just straight lies about the condition of items. we could not eat at our dinner table for 4 months as all the chairs were broken. they ignored our emails, didnt send anyone around to fix anything. they said the flat had a hoover with it before we signed for it, when we moved in the hoover was on the inventory but not there. they never replaced it. I am merely scratching the surface of the issues they didnt fix or took 4 months to get done.

    They only started doing things once i stopped paying rent after 4 months. even then it was only half done and at the time of writing at least 4 things still need doing 5 months into our tenancy (6 month tenancy).

    To top it off, they then started showing people around our flat when we said we want to renew. They havnt contacted us to say we can renew just started bringing people to the flat.

    You can not make up how bad these guys are, AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

    James and his team were extremely efficient and found us tenants within a few days of completing the purchase of our property - they also handled the sale. The commission that we agreed with them was very reasonable and they have been obliging and efficient in organising with the administrative side of things - e.g. inventories, gas checks, references and so on. They have been pleasant and professional throughout our dealign with them and we would definitely recommend them as a letting agent.

    Know one is willing to take responsibility for my dispute - there seems to be a clear lack of communication and organisation in the branch!

    What could Martin & Co do to change your mind??

    “Absolute joke when trying to discuss an inexplicable charge on my deposit. Rang up 5 days in a row and the \'person who deals with deposits\' was always either out of office or on the other line. It was a simple task of looking up what they have charged me for and the dispute can be resolved. Shocking customer service and organisations skills!!! Think twice before going with these.......”

    SAVE YOUR TIME AND MONEY, DON'T USE THEIR SERVICE!!! If you rent from this agency you will get flat untidy and with damage done by previous tenants then they will try to make you pay from your deposit for stuff which you never seen in that flat and even if you leave property spotless they still gonna charge you for cleaning.

    STAY AWAY FROM THE ABINGDON BRANCH OF MARTIN AND CO!
    Martin and co have the most unhelpful, rude and incompetent bunch of staff I have ever known! I would like to point out a few facts about the way they treated myself and my partner while we were tenants; we were left with no heating or hot water for 10 days, after a week someone came and dumped two fan heaters to our flat (one was faulty too) he came to the door with no apologies. Philip told me time after time that the heating had been fixed and it defiantly had not as the radiators were stone cold; when they finally sent a half decent... (read more)

    The service I've received as a landlord from Martin & Co has been excellent from advice on suitable properties in the area, getting the property ready to let and finding our first tenant. I would have no hesitation in recommending Martin & Co.

    We feel that Martin and Co understood the fact that the Tenants were important - not just the Landlords - who were their actual clients.
    We felt that Louise had a sense of fairness - and respect for the tenants plus the ability to deal even-handedly between the Landlord and the Tenants.

    Our dealings with staff at this branch from start to finish of our tenancy have been terrible. Firstly, from missed appointments, to avoidance of managing the property, and trying to claim expenses for every little detail - it is no wonder that this agency's rank is so low. AVOID AT ALL COSTS - because they will invent costs at the drop of a hat!

    Arguably one of the most unprofessional company I have ever dealt with. I'm used to dealing with many companies and suppliers and I know how to deal with them, however it was like Martin and Co. went out their way to be the most uncooperative.

    To start with they were what I would describe as normal. Collecting deposit (which they insisted was cash) and insisting that the only way to progress quickly was to get the cash flowing. Fair enough, that's business. The person showing me around was very helpful for the first hour, but once the money had hit his hand he immediately lost... (read more)

    Have used this branch on several occasions for over 5 years on a tenant find basis and always found them helpful and prompt, with reasonable fees.

    They are not pushy and don't try and guess what you require or instigate actions without consent - as some agents in the area are are inclined to do. I have asked tenants what is their experience been with the Agents, as I am interested that they are also happy, they have also been content with the experience. It is clear from other reviews that standards throughout the Martin & Co network vary considerably, but I would be happy to recommend them. I am likely to try their managed service soon - if they can meet my requirements./

    Same story as usual - a student letting, so they saw us coming and decided to rip us off.

    Check-in was a cursory quick thing not noting the many damages, uncleaned state of property etc. Submitted our own check-in - M&Co accepted this but then didn't provide it at check-out. So check-out was done extremely rigorously noting all damages etc. that were already present at check-in. Got screwed over for deposit.

    No prior warning when sending people round to view/fix things. Leaking roof never fixed during year long tenancy. Customer service awful.

    Comments on the Agents fees

    “PAID THEM FOR NOTHING. ON TOP OF AGENCY FEES ARE THEM TAKING MAJORITY OF DEPOSIT UNFAIRLY.”

    I currently let my property out through Martin and co and they deal with the management of it. They do an excellent job, I have regular feedback and a very happy tenant.
