    The lettings side of our business is constantly growing and we have a dedicated team who deal with all aspects including rent collection, property management, marketing, inventories and regular inspections.

    We do not outsource these services as we believe we should give our landlords the highest and most consistent service possible.

    For more information about our fees or if you are looking for a home to rent please call Andrew Lower 01380 738817 or Liz Linney 01380 738816 for more information.

Landlords

    What we offer.
    People let their houses for a number of different reasons, sometimes purely for investment but more often than not the decision to rent is due to personal circumstances.

    We realise this means your home will be lived in by strangers!

    As a safeguard we require all our tenants to pay two months as a deposit and all rent is paid in advance.

    We do not charge our tenants for inventories or tenancy agreements as many other agents do which may deter potential tenants.

    We offer two levels of service - tenant find and managed or tenant find only.

    Please contact us for more information and details of our services.
  • paragraph

    Thinking of renting?

    The lettings market is very buoyant and we always need more properties.

    If our service is of interest please talk to us about how we can help you - or come into the office for a chat. Come and meet the team and arrange for a no obligation appraisal a the property.
  • paragraph

    Property Management.
    We have a large bank of local trusted tradespeople who we can rely on for any maintenance issues at your property while it is being let. Because we have a large number of properties our contractors make that extra special effort to make time for us so we rarely have to wait long to get problems remedied.
  • paragraph

    Regulation.
    image cannot be displayed
    Our professional body (RICS) requires that we maintain a high standard of conduct and particularly in respect of clients money. We are regularly audited by independent accountants and belong to the The Dispute Service which protects both tenants and landlords, although in most instances we are usually able to resolve differences, where they occur, amicably.

    Membership of these regulatory bodies requires subscription, the cost of which is not passed on to our clients via additional charges.

    The Application Process.
    image cannot be displayed
    To apply for one of our rental properties each prospective tenant will need to complete an application form. Our fee is £140 per property (incl VAT).

    We will need two forms of identification with the completed applications - ideally a passport or driving licence, plus a utility bill showing your current address.

    The application process can take anywhere between 24hrs and two weeks depending on the response from your referees. The referencing process means that we will be contacting your current employers and landlord if applicable.
  • paragraph

    Deposit
    image cannot be displayed
    We require two months' rent as a deposit, plus one month's rent in advance before the start of your tenancy.

    Being a RICS regulated business our deposits are held in our dedicated client account and are registered with The Dispute Service.

    We do not charge tenants for drafting inventories, tenancy agreements, periodic renewal fees or final inspections.

    Please contact us if you would like further information.
  • paragraph

    Our care for you.
    We always like to think that our current tenants will one day become home owners or landlords themselves. With this in mind we try our best to make sure your well-being is paramount.

    We have an out of hours emergency call out service and we expect our landlords to provide homes that are decent and secure.

        I will certainly remember you for the future!
        Good Afternoon,

        For the past 9 months I have been renting a property with yourselves over in Easterton.

        I just wanted to pop you a line to say how pleased I have been with the level of service from yourselves. I have mostly dealt with Clara, who has been incredibly helpful and I really can't praise or thank her enough for her help and ever-speedy responses.

        It's a shame that I wasn't able to find another property with yourselves but will certainly remember you for the future! Thank you once again
        Kind Regards,

            Mr M - Devizes

            I have just sold my house within a few days through the very effective team at Martin Walker.

            All aspects of this remarkable achievement, in a difficult market, were carried through with shrewdness and energy by a team that is truly brilliant and leaves other local agents stuck at the starting gate.
