Tenant protection

Philip Martin is a member of the RICS Client Money Protection Scheme which is a client money protection scheme and also a member of The Property Ombudsman which is a redress scheme. You can find out more details on the agent's website or by contacting the agent directly.

Unlike many other 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 are required to submit an annual return. Tenancy deposits are registered with the Dispute Service Limited and the additional security that we can offer is seen as invaluable by many of our clients.
