The worst estate agents that I have ever had the displeasure to work with. The flat we are currently renting off them has so many problems considering it is only 2 years old! We have lived there now for 9 months (we are currently packing to leave after arguing with them to let us leave!). We have had no hot water in our bath for the whole time of our stay, there is a leak in the cupboard where there are electrical wires near by which has not been sorted, there is a leak behind the toilet which t...

This was my review - just an update! We have finally moved out of the flat, thank god! We have been 'allowed' to leave without any penalties, which suggests to me they knew they were wrong and couldn't fight us on our case. We have had our flat checked over which I completely understand is normal procedure and necessary. We have been told to go back and clean a "dusty" window sill, clean a mark on a door and that there is marks around one room at the same level. When my other half wen ...

Hi iv been looked after by Daniel from the Crewe office... He is professional and courteous at all times and most importantly he recognises how busy I am as a landlord and he has swiftly got involved in the nitty gritty day to day runnings of my property making sure that I have complete peace of mind... I'm confident that all is well in his capable hands and it takes the pressure off me seeing just how efficient he is!! Well done ... keep up the Great Work... Thank you also to Johnathon and the ...

I have been a tenant with Martin and Co Crewe for several years and I can honestly say that they are the worst company it has ever been my misfortune to deal with . No matter the situation they let us down at every turn either through apathy , incompetence or just a general disregard for us their customers . Avoid this company like the plague as they will cause you nothing but trouble and stress for every second of your dealings with them, they are thoroughly incompetent and shockingly unprofess...

Extremely incompetent and rude letting agents. They came in my house without my permission and brought people in for viewing. When I called to complain, they were the least bothered and said I could call the police. I have a long term tenancy with them and they couldn't possibly be bringing other tenants to view the house while I am still here let alone not even give me a day's notice! This has to be the worst agency I ever dealt with in my life....

I was due to move into a house with martin & co. only to find the tenants were still living there, therefore making me and my partner homeless. They did however found us a place last minute so we left the matter at that even if they failed to apologize for their mistakes. Being a student I instantly felt discriminated against with requests to pay 6 months rent up front on top of the deposit and large unjustifiable hidden fees (i.e. £85 for admin and £50 to write up a contract) ev...

Terrible Customer Service - No one ever phones back - Phoned and asked for Manager Mark Bowland He never answers calls and never returns calls, always seems to be on phone whenever I'v phoned to complain. The work in getting a tennant and checking there references was terrible, we ended up with some-one on benifits who never paid there rent! martins never gave us any advise on getting them to pay & only offered us a socitor to write a small claims form at £££ which I c...

I had exactly the same problems. Mark never responded to my questions in e-mails when I had a complaint. I also had a tenant on HB who didn't pay rent on time, or sometimes at all. They have been reported to the Property Ombudsman due to all the problems they caused, and we are just waiting for the outcome. We probably wouldn't have bothered, but after talking to people they all know someone who used them and had problems, so they had taken them to the Ombudsman, and won, and their problems we ...

Its was our first year in letting our house , we expected a letting agency to look after & check references etc on any prospective tennants, we ended up with the tennant from hell, she has'nt paid the full rental for 6 months & all martins have done is phone her to say she owes her rent, they never advised us to contact housing benefit office and get payment made directly to us and now her tennancy has ended they seem to do nothing in getting her out. I wonder why we ever agreed to mart...

I wish I had seen this before I entered into a letting with Martin and co. I really feel sorry for the owners of the property I am letting. The supposed inventory inspector obviously missed a number of key items. Things like a film of grease across the kitchen faulty broken equipment which was reported as "excellent" one hand does not know why the other does!!! One says the chimney needs swept the other says the fire has a leak. The house is a nice house but like I said I feel sorry ...

I have recently moved out of a property with Martin and Co. The house was cleaned top to bottom, hoovered, cleaned the carpet (hiring a cleaning machine) and re painted the kitchen. When I received my check out form, they stated how it wasn't cleaned, the oven door was dirty, the carpets hadn't been hoovered and that a door hinge was broken and the entire door had to be replaced. The oven glass door CAN NOT BE REMOVED and was cleaned in side and out. If I cant get in-between the panes of gla...

Absolutely rubbish! I've been in my place for nearly 2 years now and I'm still waiting for things to be sorted. When I moved in I signed a form to say I was happy to have builders in to cap off the chimney in my first week...this still hasn't been done, resulting in black mold in the living room which has already caused me some health problems. I had bronchitis last year and called the maintenance office to chase the situation up explaining that I'd been very unwell and had this mould in the hou...

I've the same problem with them as a landlord. Promise you the earth until they have your signature, then nothing! Meant to have the full management service, so far not had one written report back on the checks they are contracted to do every quarter, or even verbal report. ...

Didn't give proper advice regarding do's and don'ts for renting out as beginners. Moved in tenant with unsuitable guarantor, didn't tell us, or show references, just said she had one. I have to chase them to find out if the rent is in on time, which it never is. Phone calls are a nightmare - never get back with answers in a suitable timescale. E-mails are ignored for 2 or 3 days. I don't get answers to urgent questions. The tenant is a nightmare - for me as a landlord, and for the neighbours ...

Admit their sytem failed, or wan't acted upon correctly. Get the tenant out at their own expence, refund the management fees and get the repairs sorted out of their own pocket, or their liability insurance.
