The c omplete lettings servic e When the sales market took a dip in 2008 many estate agents went into letting property as a way to ride out the storm. Unlike these agents, Martyn Gerrard Estate Agents have been dealing with property since 1964 and have a long established, dedicated Lettings Department. Whether you are a landlord with a portfolio of properties or this is your first venture into letting a property you are able to draw on this invaluable experience and local knowledge, unmatched by other newer agents.

With Martyn Gerrard you are choosing a licensed ARLA member, so you can be sure that you and your property are in safe hands.

SECURITY Tenancy Agreements Our tenancy agreements have been written to provide the landlord with as much protection as possible under current legislation. Rent Guarantee Tenant assessment is carried out by an independent third party. Once the tenant passes this assessment an insurance backed rent guarantee is provided – Free of Charge for the first year of the tenancy. Client Money Protection The RICS audit our accounts and provide Client Money Protection to all of our clients. This means should anything happen to Martyn Gerrard Estate Agents, your money is protected. KNOWLEDGE In addition to our experience from working in your area for decades, our lettings team study for and obtain the Technical Award in Residential Lettings and Property Management, and become Licensed Letting Agents through membership of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA). We are also regulated by The Property Ombudsman and the Royal Institution of Charted Surveyors (RICS).

“Just wanted to say how pleased we are with the service you’ve provided to us over the years.You have let the flat quickly, at a good rent, and we’ve had some lovely tenants. I’ll always happily recommend you to others.” Andy, Crouch End

TRANSPARENT SERVICE Unlike other agents we do not have any additional hidden charges such as fees for registering the tenant’s deposit or administration and arrangement fees, which can add hundreds of pounds to the cheaper headline percentage rate.

Effe ctive Marketing We understand that to achieve your goal of letting your property at the best price in your required time frame we need to market your property effectively. We take pride in our proactive approach to find the most suitable tenants. With our network of ten offices we can access a huge database of professional tenants looking for a property in North and North West London, many of whom are registered exclusively with us. To ensure your property is seen by as wide an audience of the potential tenants as possible we invest heavily in online marketing. Our properties can be found on the top internet portals – Zoopla, Rightmove, Prime-location and Gumtree. Each property we market has a floor plan which enables potential tenants to visualise the property and cuts down on wasted viewings. Providing this additional service means more potential tenants prefer to come to Martyn Gerrard. Speeding up the process We are the first agent in your area to pioneer the use of DocuSign. This is a secure online service for legally signing any document – electronically. This gives our clients the option to deal with the paperwork involved in renting their property online. Not having to rely on the post can really speed up the process.

You were super efficient in renting my flat in four days. On a personal note you understood that I was nervous about renting my home of six years and were sympathetic and guided me through the process. Debra, Finchley

We appre ciate you We appreciate that providing an honest, friendly and personal service, backed up by knowledge and experience, is what customer care is all about. This has been at the heart of our ethos since Mr Martyn Gerrard opened his first office in Whetstone in 1964. Over 60% of our business comes from recommendation, reputation or people returning who have used our services in the past, which demonstrates that we understand that the people we deal with are as important as the property we let.   In 2011 we appeared in the Channel 4 series “Mary Portas – Secret Shopper”. Many people have commented that this was very brave and we felt it was a great opportunity to have Mary’s retail experience cast a fresh eye over what we do and provide some innovative ideas and a fresh approach to what many see as staid industry norms. She recognised existing high service standards and helped us to refine certain areas to ensure we offer unrivalled and unique customer service.

MG in the Community Helping the communities we work in has always been one of our priorities at Martyn Gerrard. There are a number of local projects, schools and charities for which we have helped raise tens of thousands of pounds. We have sponsored Summer and Christmas fairs, quiz nights, school football teams and during the Jubilee supported local street parties. We have continued our long-standing association with the North London Hospice to which we have donated in excess of £50,000 over the years. In 2012 St Mary’s Primary School in Finchley needed to raise money to renovate their school library. When we found out they were struggling to raise the funds we stepped in with a donation to finish the work.The school generously offered to name it the “Martyn Gerrard library” in honour of the donation. 2013 sees us playing a major role in funding and project managing the ‘Victorian House’ scheme for Coleridge School in Crouch End.
