Why Choose Philip Martin?
We are an independent firm of estate and letting agents, chartered surveyors, valuers and auctioneers. With head offices in beautiful Truro, we are proud to let 640 properties around mid and west Cornwall. This number is always growing due to the high demand for dwellings across all price brackets to suit a range of budgets.
Unlike many other letting agents, our professionalism is ensured by the strict codes of practice laid down by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, of which we are members. This includes several requirements like ring-fencing clients’ finance and tenancy deposits, holding high levels of indemnity insurance, submitting an annual return and being regularly audited by the RICS. These benefits are seen as invaluable by many of our clients and guarantee that your letting will be looked after by us. Why not have a look at what is included in our set-up service and full management service?
We offer a wide variety of services to suit individual clients needs from setting up tenancies to full management and offer simple fee structures with a detailed brochure available by emailing us at email@example.com
Scale Of Fees For Landlords
Set-Up Service (Tenant Find only)
- Market appraisal
- Advising monthly rent
- Advertising for potential tenants
- Carrying out viewings and evaluating their suitability as tenants
- Negotiating terms between the landlord and tenant
- Obtaining references and preparing the relevant tenancy agreements and paperwork
- Compiling an inventory of the property and setting up accounts for the utilities for the tenants
- We collect the first month’s rent and deposit. The management of the tenancy is then handed over to the landlord and we are no longer involved.
£85 fee plus VAT to hold, register deposit and carry out exit check
60% of monthly rent plus VAT
Full Management Service
This includes the above service (advising the landlord in the process of letting and setting up tenancy) as well as:
Actively managing the tenancy for the duration of the lease
- Dealing with all matters in relation to the tenant or the property such as the monthly collection of rent, inspections, and arranging repairs with the landlord’s consent
£120 plus VAT fee for the setting up of each tenancy
11% of the monthly rent plus VAT fee for monthly management
For both services, the landlord will be charged at cost for an inventory based on the size of the property. For example, a one-bedroom property will cost £80 plus VAT, increasing by £5 per bedroom and an additional £25 for furnished properties. We pride ourselves on helping people find their perfect property to rent here in Cornwall by providing a professional and personal service each step of the way.
As an independent Cornish firm specialising in letting property, we recognise the importance of customer service both to potential tenants and our landlords.

Having recently Sold my house with Philip Martin Estate Agents I cannot praise the whole experience enough. From the first telephone conversation to the last it has been impressive. Professional, Polite, Guiding, Encouraging. I do need to mention Jack Loader, no question or query was too much trouble, making the selling process a pleasure.

James and his team handled a complex sale (house and adjacent land owned by a third party) with great professionalism and innovation and determination to secure our sale. He was also cognisant of our time scales in that we had not secured an onward purchase or rental property. James is an extremely approachable agent who always worked with us to successfully achieve our goals and certainly went ‘the extra mile’ when required. We cannot recommend him highly enough.
Cannot recommend enough! We had a particularly complicated and problematic experience trying to sell a property recently and we were so(!) lucky we had Sean alongside us to guide and support. Sean was patient, efficient and super supportive throughout the entire process. I am genuinely confident we would not have been able to do it without him! Thank you as well to Aaron, I know he did a lot of work on this one too! You two are the best and we are so thankful for all your hard work getting this one across the line! I highly recommend and look forward to hopefully working with you both again.
Very efficient and personable service helped us find a perfect place. Trustworthy and effective. Thank you.
Dear Jack, I have moved into my new bungalow and it is very nice. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your efforts on my behalf. You have behaved rapidly and helpfully to assist me with all of the problems that arose for me in one of several difficult projects at once. Thank you very much.
