    H Wald & Co has a long standing and enviable reputation in residential lettings; having been established in Folkestone since 1963. We consider ourselves one of the most experienced and successful independent residential agents in Folkestone. We provide a comprehensive service to include periodic visits, Energy Performance Certificates, inventories, check in and check outs, viewings and a professional referencing service. We believe this gives us an intimate knowledge of each of our Landlords' properties. We are highly experienced and would welcome the chance to assist you, whether you are looking to let out your own property, portfolio of properties, or looking to enter the buy-to-let arena.

    Inventory
    We produce our own MAPIP paper inventory that details every room within the property and gardens if applicable. On check in we meet the new Tenant(s) at the property and go through the inventory room by room also taking meter readings and listing the keys released to the tenant. At time of check in we insist that the Tenant(s) sign and agree the inventory prior to us leaving the property therefore reducing the likelihood of any disputes at the end of the Tenancy.
  • paragraph

    Referencing
    When applicants wish to apply for a Tenancy, they have to pass a referencing procedure. We use a professional referencing agency to carry out checks which include - electoral roll, credit history, employment reference, accountant's reference if self employed and previous landlord reference if applicable. We will not proceed with a tenancy unless the applicants have been approved.

  • paragraph

    APPLICATION A non-refundable referencing fee is payable (£75 per person, £150 per couple). In addition there is an Agreement fee of £100.
    REFERENCES We use a professional referencing agent. Each applicant, including any guarantor or company will be required to complete a reference/application form. The reference and application will not proceed until payment of the reference administration fee has been received. A series of enquiries will be made about each applicant by the referencing agency and these will include confirmation of status from the following: Current Landlord, employers, bank/building society, Accountant if self employed, electoral roll, credit reference database including County Court judgments, tenant's database. If you have any doubts about the result of any referencing enquiry being satisfactory, we advise you to disclose this at the application stage.
    DEPOSIT We require 6 weeks rent to be held as a deposit. This is returnable at the end of the tenancy provided the terms of the Tenancy Agreement have been complied with.
  • paragraph

    INITIAL PAYMENT The reference and administration fee must be paid prior to referencing forms being submitted. The first month's rent and the deposit must be received by H Wald & Co. in full in cleared funds before we can check you into the property. If you pay by cheque, this must be received seven working days before the commencement of the tenancy.
    FUTURE PAYMENTS OF RENT All rental payments are required monthly in advance on the due date. A bank standing order form will be provided for payments by this method. Please ensure that your bank details are completed correctly and that the form is signed and returned to H Wald & Co. Unless otherwise stated, all payments are to be made payable to H Wald & Co.
    INSURANCE The landlord is responsible for the insurance of the buildings and any contents they own. We recommend that you have your own contents insurance for your belongings. H Wald & Co can provide you with information about tenants' contents insurance under which various levels of cover are available, including the landlord's items against accidental damage by the tenant. Please ask for details.
  • paragraph

    INVENTORY A detailed inventory, which will also include a Note of Condition as applicable, will be prepared for your signature at the time the tenancy commences. This will be agreed with you when you are checked into the property and again when you check out to vacate. This is important in connection with regard to the return of your deposit. The landlord will also sign an identical copy of this document.
    KEYS One set of keys to the main entrance door will be provided for each adult tenant. You are not permitted to cut new keys or change locks to the property without the permission of H Wald & Co or the Landlord. Please advise us immediately if the keys are lost or you believe that some unauthorized person has come into possession of them. All keys must be surrendered when you leave the property
    UTILITIES Meter readings will be taken when we check you into or out of the property. H Wald & Co will write to the local authority in respect of Council Tax, the relevant water authorities and gas and electricity suppliers. Tenants must not change any utility supplier without informing H Wald & Co. We will need the full contact details for the new supplier and your customer reference number.
  • paragraph

    DAMAGES Accidents and repairs, damage to the property or repairs required, must be reported immediately to H Wald & Co. who will take the appropriate action. We endeavour to undertake repairs quickly with the least inconvenience to you as possible. Please understand the difficulties that we sometimes experience with contractors particularly certain times of the year, for example holiday time or during adverse weather conditions.
    PROPERTY VISITS If the property is to be under the management of H Wald & Co., we will visit, subject to prior arrangement with you, every six months and report back to the landlord.
    GENERAL Further information may be provided to you during your tenancy. H Wald & Co. wishes you to be happy in the property and will make every effort to make your period of tenancy enjoyable. We would ask you to cooperate with us to ensure that you, the landlord and H Wald & Co. benefit from a cooperative relationship.
