Mervyn Smith Estate Agents and Valuers office

Carter Jonas

In association with Mervyn Smith

As the lettings side of Mervyn Smith grew in the 1990s, and the legal, financial and regulatory aspects of letting become more complex, we felt we could provide a more comprehensive service via a partnership with a dedicated letting business, -particularly as our office space on Ham Parade was already challenged given the amount of business we do. So we established a partnership at that time with Sargent & Young, an independently run business like ourselves, - but who were dedicated solely to lettings and management. They were based at White Hart Lane in Mortlake and in time merged with Boileaus in Barnes. Boileaus were in turn acquired by the Carter Jonas property consultancy, at which point we had the option to seek a new partner, but felt after a series of meetings that the ethics and professional standards of Carter Jonas chimed strongly with the values of Mervyn Smith. Indeed this association has gone from strength to strength with an ever widening portfolio of properties under management. We benefit from their added input and the support of manager Charlotte Godley and her team who provide expertise, maintenance of professional and legal standards and compliance with the latest legislation and health and safety issues.

All our rental properties are of course fully marketed from the Mervyn Smith office and get the same wide spread of internet advertising on our own website and over multiple national websites and local newspaper and magazine advertising.

Equally though our lettings portfolio benefits from all the additional advertising budget and contacts of Carter Jonas as well, which reaches a different clientele. Mervyn Smith staff conduct all the viewings of our rental properties and make initial assessments of prospective tenants. Keys to managed properties are held in the Mervyn Smith office and signed in and out by us. Carter Jonas provide the back office accounting, paperwork and scheduling. The combination has proved a winning formula, with an ever-expanding roster of properties in the local area and beyond. Many of our landlords have retained our services over many years, and some of them have multiple properties managed by us. Clients can bring in paperwork, ID etc to either the Ham or the White Hart Lane office.

However, the Carter Jonas office itself has also became challenged for space as the portfolio of properties increased, so the lettings office relocated in early 2017 just down the street into a newly refurbished larger bespoke state of the art lettings office at 70 White Hart Lane, SW13 0PZ.
