Martyn Gerrard in the news - November

 

Martyn Gerrard works with a specialist media agency to ensure that every property on our books is given maximum exposure in the press. We go beyond marketing and advertising campaigns, raising our agency’s profile across a wide variety of media platforms to guarantee that the properties we buy and sell are represented regularly and favourably at a local and national level.

 

Our senior team were proud to relay the concerns of the North London community we represent in a meeting with Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid this month, who came to our Finchley head office. Managing Director Simon Gerrard used the meeting to build on the issues he raised in his initial letter to the government earlier this year, namely the urgent need for a stamp duty switch, asking the senior MP to consider a switch in responsibility from buyer to seller, which could help all those working to move up the property ladder without impacting Government coffers. The Chancellor made clear that he recognised the agency’s concerns and would bear them in mind when planning for the next budget.

 

The agency has continued to use its specialist knowledge of both local and national property sectors to offer genuine advice to the public. Simon’s most recent comments in The Telegraph, for instance, outlined the complexities of HMO licencing regulations across London counties, expanding on the insight he shared in Ham & High last month. By examining issues that are impacting the property sector through a professional lens, we hope to continue engaging with the market and the government whilst favourably representing our clients.
