“DON'T choose Martin & Co Folkestone”

Written on: 27/01/2015 by McPherson14 (1 review written)

From day 1 we have had unnecessary problems with this agent. Lied from the beginning about parking issues, facilities in our "exclusive luxury" property that we are paying a huge amount for have a toilet and shower that do not work, alarm has not stopped flashing the whole time we have been here, no extraction despite the fact the property is half underground, condemned under floor heating that was sold to us on our viewing and the bin area was beyond disgusting.We have complained in… Read Full Review

“Nottingham,landlord awarded compensation through...”

Written on: 19/01/2015

I have just been awarded compensation through The Property Ombudsman scheme from the Friar Lane Branch Nottingham for their failing to competently manage my student let. Despite finding excellent students, there were numerous problems initially with the check in and Martin and Co gave me a goodwill gesture payment. I had a fully managed contract and when the problems continued I had no option but to refer my case to the property Ombudsman.Unfortunately I can not go into detail, due to… Read Full Review

“Rude/unprofessional/unhelpful ”

Written on: 13/01/2015 by KamdenReed (1 review written)

I went to view a house with this company yesterday, it's safe to say I was very disappointed. The young uninterested girl they sent around didn't even as much introduce herself as she just said "oright" and opened the doors for us, she then made sinde comments and answered are questions with.. "Well obviously.." And didn't have any helpful information about the house to answer any of questions properly. The house was in bad condition and falling apart and was priced much too high. All in… Read Full Review

“Most unprofessional company I've ever had dealings with”

Written on: 30/12/2014

I suggest you avoid Martin & Co at all costs. We rented through them and found the manager on our garden, peering through the window!! They also entered the property without our permission and we found this out because of the muddy footprints left on the carpet. We went with no hot water downstairs for over 2 weeks even though we phoned to report this several times. And to top it off we left a light fitting when we finally moved out. We called the office the next day to let them know and they… Read Full Review

We have no heating in our rented property but the boiler has eaten our credit. We have had to blast the heating up to see if it would work and in doing so it's just stole our money and not provided no heat the radiators are stone cold. We have had to purchase electric heaters to keep warm a plumber has been out twice to see the problem but martin and co are not paying us anything back due to their faulty boiler I believe they should I rang them and they said that it was our fault that we are… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional ”

Written on: 27/11/2014 by Dashawn1987 (1 review written)

I am dissatisfied with the lack of service with the branch in Romford. Lack of communication and very unprofessional. I am an ex estate agent I believe this should not be how it's run. I would not recommend them to anyone. Very poor. Please read all Reviews especially the one where the managing director threatens to take a potential client to legal for writing a honest experience in Martin Co. Says it all… Read Full Review

“Censored by Martin & Co”

Written on: 20/11/2014 by AlfredoTurner172 (1 review written)

I would write a review of how dissatisfied I have been with Martin & Co's customer service but when I did so on another review site I got an email the next day from the managing director saying he forwarded that review to his solicitors so he could take legal action against me. So for legal reasons I will say Martin & Co are absolutely fantastic… Read Full Review

“Worst Agents Ever”

Written on: 03/11/2014 by 274Egan (1 review written)

This company have broken every rule in the book, they did not provide an inventory of the contents or condition of the flat until the end of the tenancy, they constantly brought 'viewers' round to see the flat after a couple of weeks into the tenancy, they did nothing about the dampness in the bathroom or replace the light bulbs that were not working when we moved in We had to get legal advice to stop them bringing 'viewers' round until near the end of the tenancy. At the end of the tenancy… Read Full Review

“DO NOT TOUCH”

Written on: 29/10/2014 by tcHead106 (1 review written)

Let my property via Martin and Co for 7+ years. Have had numerous bad tennants and been hit with repeated repair bills labelled wear and tear (including nail varnish spilt on a full floor carpet). Very poor communication. Did not advise me that my tenant had disappeared and left rent owing as well as a considerable amount of repair work needed to make the property rentable / sellable again. They then retained the deposit as 'fees'. Has put us off of renting property for life and we are now… Read Full Review

“Rude”

Written on: 14/10/2014 by lala_25 (1 review written)

Was very excited to view some properties only to be left feeling belittled. I was told i would not be shown something i 'couldn't afford' even though i had explained my budget could stretch, and also that they wouldn't send somebody out on a saturday morning to let me view a property as i wasnt 100% sure if i wanted the property. Its only one of biggest decisions of my life, but made to feel like i was a number not a person and hope you feel great for making me feel so belittled!… Read Full Review

“Unbelieveable”

Written on: 15/09/2014

Let my property with Martin and Co for 3yrs in Aberdeen. Frequent delays in rent payment, very poor communication, 'forgot' to tell me tenant was moving out, couldn't tell me for definite whether or not tenant had paid final month's rent, passed between several people on every problem. Often promised to be 'contacted later that day' then total silence for days on end til I called them again. Total waste of time and money, don't bother with them… Read Full Review

“profit over people!”

Written on: 12/09/2014 by RighteousIndignation (1 review written)

Well you don't choose your estate agent so much as choose your house…. But the phrase 'over inflated sense of self' comes to mind when Martin + co is concerned (Southsea branch). Having just entered our new house, which was filthy, (apparently - this is fine) i let Martin + co know that and other issues - French doors badly hung and don't shut properly, attic door broken at the hinge, key to the front door fits badly and you can spend 20 minutes trying to open it - 2 weeks ago, and heard… Read Full Review

“A disgrace to Manchester”

Written on: 08/09/2014

Do not use this company/branch under any circumstances. The staff are rude, intolerable and make what should be an exciting experience an absolute nightmare. Not only do they demonstrate a lack of customer service skills but they seem to be trained to steel money as any available opportunity. My girlfriend and I moved loved the look of an apartment in Castlefield, Manchester and provisionally agreed a six month contract with Martin and Co. They were very happy for us to come into the branch on… Read Full Review
