The first step will be to contact us to arrange a viewing. You can do this by calling us on (01752) 255255, contacting the lettings team via email plymouth@martinco.com, online by registering as a tenant or if you'd prefer to speak to one of our friendly team face to face, come to the office where we would be more than happy to help.
Great! You will now need to come into the office to pay a holding fee. If you are unable to come into the office, please call us as we can take details any payment over the phone. You will then receive an email with details of the application process from The Lettings Hub.
Once we have received your completed application form, you should allow 7-10 days for referencing however this may vary. Referencing is subject to Landlord approval.

We recommend that you contact your referees advising them to expect a reference request and ask them to reply promptly to minimise any delays. We advise that you contact our Lettings Manager on a regular basis during the referencing process to ensure that we have all of the relevant information.
Prior to the commencement of the tenancy, you will be required to pay the first months rent, damage deposit (equivalent to one months rent) and the tenants set up fees as outlined on our tenant fees page.
Upon completion of satisfactory referencing, you will be contacted our Lettings Negotiator to make arrangements to sign your tenancy agreement.
