    Winkworth was established in 1835. In 1981 the company became the UK's first franchised estate agency operation. Now, with a network of over 80 offices and, as an active supporter of industry regulation, Winkworth is a familiar and trusted feature of the estate agency landscape. Along with an extensive London presence, there are offices spanning the UK and the business has an increasing international presence.

    Winkworth Lettings in Winchester operates from a central City office in St Clement Street. All properties are managed "in house" with absolutely no call centres and each property is therefore given the personal attention of the experienced and dedicated Lettings team who have had many years of experience in the industry. Being a member of NALS (National Approved Letting Scheme) gives Tenants and Landlords alike peace of mind, knowing that Winkworth are part of a Client Money Protection Scheme and meet their defined standards of customer service.

    Customer service is key to the office's success and growth, with many landlords and tenants becoming clients thanks to recommendations from past and present clients. Our customers discover in us an agent they can trust and who constantly exceeds their expectations.

    Selling
    • paragraph

      This is the place you have poured time, money and effort into. It's your home and you probably love it. But, for whatever reason, it's time to move on.

      Some things are a given when you're selling. You want the minimum hassle, a speedy sale and the best possible price. But what about adding an agent that really thinks about the detail to that list, too? An agent who is immersed in the local area and totally gets what the buyers want? An agent who will walk into your home and know instantaneously which little things will make the world of difference to the sale.

      This is where Winkworth agents come into their own.

      What you need from an agent is experience - we have over 175 years in the business, no less.

      Local expertise

      Ours are local businesses run by local people, who, quite simply, love their patch. This passion is infectious for buyers and sellers alike.

      A unified group

      Winkworth becomes one when it comes to sharing properties and referring clients. Our offices consider themselves part of local, regional and national networks, all working together to secure the very best outcome for our buyers and sellers.

      A strong brand

      Winkworth is the largest estate agency brand in London and one of the fastest-growing in the UK. Word-of-mouth and repeat business is what we're all about.


    • paragraph

      Lots and lots of registered buyers

      We're talking tens of thousands here, and we share them across our network - no-one slips through the net.

      Powerful marketing

      This is so important and we do it so well that we've dedicated a page to it.

      Attention to detail

      Winkworth agents see things differently, picking out the finite details that will ensure a sale

      Right here with you

      Selling can be a complicated and frustrating process - it's just the way things are when you're dealing with lots of people and their most valuable asset. We'll be there with you from start to finish, from managing viewings to sorting out complicated chains. And our agents will give you honest advice on all the little niggly things, like the best local tradespeople to fix those small jobs around the house.

    Exciting times, buying a property
    • paragraph

      There's nothing quite like a face-to-face chat with an expert, but here's a quick summary of useful tips and reminders for you buyers.

      Finances in order?

      Before you do anything else, we say do your research and find how much you can actually afford to spend on a property. Take into account any available cash you have for a deposit and then speak to a mortgage broker, or a selection of providers and find out what they'd be willing to lend you. Make sure they put their 'in principle' offers in writing.

      Don't forget, you'll need to put money aside for the stamp duty land tax, too.

      Looking at properties

      So, you've scoured the estate agents' websites and windows, poured over the property portals and pounded the streets figuring out where you might like to buy. Time to book in some viewings.

      When looking around a property, use the estate agent and ask questions. You might want to think about things like:

      • The number of years left on any lease (if it's a leasehold property)
      • Does the property have things like gas central heating, modern insulation and double glazing? If not, these are big ticket items to get fitted
      • The council tax band the property falls in
      • Any service charge
      • Local transport links
      • Outdoor space
      • If you like a property, be sure to get in a couple of viewings at different times of the day and invite friends and family along for a second opinion.
      Making an offer

      You've found a property you're sure you want to buy. Call the estate agent and let them know how much you're willing to offer. Don't be surprised if your first offer is declined - that's the name of the game and buying a property is all about negotiation.

      If there are a number of people keen to buy the property, you might be invited to take part in a sealed bid.

      Fingers crossed.

      Everything in order?

      When your offer is accepted, you'll need to employ a conveyancer. This legal specialist will manage any negotiations to do with the purchase of the property on your behalf. They'll check all the paperwork is in order and look after the details of the contract for you.

      Most people hire a chartered surveyor, too. The surveyor will do a full survey of the property, highlighting any possible problems that might need looking at. There are two types of survey you can buy; a homebuyer's report and a building survey.

      Money, money, money

      Buying a property costs money; a lot of money. You'll be asked to hand over your hard-earned cash throughout the process.

      • Mortgage arrangement fee
      • Mortgage indemnity fee
      • Lender's valuation fee
      • Conveyancing
      • Land Registry fee
      • Surveys
      • Stamp duty land tax
      • Removals
      • Contingency fund (there are always unexpected costs along the way)
      • Building and contents insurance
