FAQs

How much is it going to cost me to hire Martyn and is it worth it?
Hiring Martyn will put you ahead of the game. If you are the landlord for a business that must be relocated, most, if not all, of his fees are fully reimbursable by the public agency. In other cases, Martyn’s investigations can uncover more ways for you, the property owner, to be compensated, so you get more money back than you would have.
