Established in 1986, Philip Martin is an independently owned estate and letting agency covering mid to West Cornwall and dealing with a wide variety of properties in all price ranges. The agency is staffed by committed and highly qualified local people with a wealth of experience and expertise in the regional housing market.
Since 2000 we have a designated residential letting department dealing with a wide variety of properties across Cornwall and acting for clients as far afield as Hong Kong and Australia. We currently look after around 340 properties although this number is always growing and there is a high demand across all price brackets for good quality dwellings.
Unlike many letting agents we are governed by the strict codes of practice laid down by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors of which we are members and this includes a requirement to "ring fence" clients money and tenancy deposits as well as hold high levels of professional indemnity insurance. We are regularly audited by the RICS and required to submit an annual return. With regard to tenants deposits we are registered with the Dispute Service Limited and in a time when there have been many highly publicised occurrences of letting agents going out of business and losing clients and tenants money we feel that the additional security that we can offer is invaluable.
We offer a wide variety of services to suit individual clients from setting up tenancies to full management and a brochure is available on request by telephoning 01872 272716.
The agency has 3 offices; two of the offices are situated in the centre of Truro in a prominent position. The sales office is on the corner of Cathedral Lane and St Mary's Street, opposite the cathedral itself with the lettings office on the other side of Cathedral Lane at number 6. The third office is at 3 Quayside Arcade, St Mawes TR2 5DT, Tel 01326 270008. All three offices enjoy a high level of pedestrian traffic and all properties for sale are displayed to this audience.
