    Wingetts Lettings and Management Department are pleased to be able to offer either a Tenant Find Only or Tenant Find and Full Management service. Details of both services are below-

    a) Tenant Find Service

    We will -

    1. Take full details of your property and provide a presentation of the property to let in order to promote the property to best advantage.

    2. Provide advice on legal aspects of letting, the correct form of tenancy, rent expectation and the preparation required of the property to let.

    3. Provide marketing support for your property, which will include newspaper advertisements, web marketing (incl Rightmove) and Town Centre Office display in order to secure a high quality tenant. Accompany prospective tenants over the property.

    4. Negotiate and agree with your approval the terms of the letting.

    5. Carry out status enquiries with the applicant's employer, any prior landlord together with a credit search to determine the suitability of the applicant (s). This will include a guarantor if necessary.

    6. Prepare the appropriate Tenancy Agreement and other legal notices and documents to comply with current legislation, taking into account your specific requirements and instructions.

    7. Accept a Tenant's deposit against dilapidations. You must register this with a deposit protection scheme. We can offer you advice on this. If we are managing the property we will register this on your behalf.

    8. Prepare an Inventory and/or Statement of Condition as required, to include photographs where applicable.

    9. Arrange for the transfer of utilities to the tenant to include Gas, Electric, Water and Council Tax into the tenants name. No responsibility is taken for transfer of telephone connections.

    10. Collect the first months rent and arrange for the tenancy agreement to be signed by all necessary parties prior to releasing the keys.

    b) Management Service

    10. Collect rents and account to you on a monthly basis.

    11. Make authorised payments from your account where requested.

    12. Receive reports from tenants with regard to maintenance and repairs for which you are responsible and instruct tradesmen to affect such maintenance and repair. (Our duties in this respect are subject to being made aware of any problem arising).

    13. Confirm that maintenance and repair tasks are carried out satisfactorily, verify tradesmen's invoices and make payment on your behalf from rental income received to a maximum of £75.

    NOTE: Should a maintenance or repair task exceed your authorised limit of £75 we will seek your instructions, if possible.

    In the event of an emergency, however, we undertake to have carried out all precautions necessary to safeguard the property with the resultant expenses incurred deemed to be with your authority and on your behalf.

    14. Make quarterly inspections of the property and advise you of the results including, where necessary, any maintenance or repair consideration which we consider should be brought to your attention. Such inspections, however, should not be regarded as anything more than a check to ensure that the tenants are observing the conditions of the agreement and that in all respects the property appears to be well cared for by the tenant.

    15. At the end of the tenancy, carry out a final inspection and make such deductions as, in our opinion, are necessary from the tenant's deposit in order to compensate you for such dilapidations. (Fair wear and tear taken into account). Should the tenant dispute the deduction the matter has to be referred to the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and their decision is final.

    16. Arrange for the transfer of utilities excluding telephone connection.

    17. Seek new tenants where applicable in order to ensure continuity of occupancy. (The letting fee re-applies)

    Where the property remains unoccupied between letting periods if must be distinctly understood that our management does not include supervision of the property, although in normal circumstances, where we are conducting viewing appointments, periodic visits may be made.

    18. Where there is a breach of the tenancy agreement by a tenant, take all necessary steps to resolve the breach including the serving of relevant notices and report to you on such an event and on the progress being made to resolve the problem.

    19. It will be assumed unless advised otherwise, that Landlords will be prepared to renew the Tenancy Agreement following the expiration of the initial term. Accordingly, tenants will be offered the right to renew the tenancy for a further period of 6, 12 or on a monthly basis.

    20. We will hold and register the deposit with the Tenancy Dispute Service in accordance with current regulations.

    21. We will conform to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (of which we are members) stringent Accounting Policies to ensure your monies are held in the correct Client Bank Accounts.

    How do you assess the Market Rent for my Property?
    We will arrange for one of our Qualified Valuers to meet with yourselves at the property to advise you of the rental value. This will be based on its location, condition, size, type of property, standard of furnishings and equipment and the market conditions at the time.

    Will there be any charge for this advice?
    No, our initial advice and valuation is free and without obligation. No charge is made until a tenant occupies the property.

    If you have a mortgage then you must obtain permission from your Building Society, Bank or other lender before letting your property.
    Insurance companies covering your buildings and contents should also be advised.
