    Our Lettings department is a very important part of our business, and is built on the success of our other departments and the ability to be able to offer our new and existing clients a quality lettings service to take care of their property investments.

    Our prominent office in Shoreham by Sea on Brighton Road is perfectly placed to deal with any property within Shoreham by Sea or its surrounding areas, and is great for attracting potential tenants due to our eye-catching brand and easy to find location. Anyone who has been in Shoreham for any amount of time is likely to have seen our office!

    Our priority is to give an excellent service that we would be happy to receive ourselves as a client, identify the best tenants available while communicating with you throughout the process, and renting your property as quickly as possible at an agreed rental figure that you as the Landlord are happy with, based on the current local rental market.

    Oakley is committed to continually improving the quality of service we offer to all of our customers whether letting, renting, selling or buying and to maintain a high level of honesty, integrity and transparency.

    We are a highly motivated team of local people with great knowledge of our town at all levels, and can give you advice on almost anything to do with Shoreham by Sea and the surrounding areas.  We have dedicated lettings, sales, new homes, and commercial teams, so we can help you no matter what your property needs are.

    Whether you're considering buying a property to rent or are considering renting your own property out, then our Shoreham team can provide a service to suit your needs.

    • The choices of services we can offer you are Fully Managed, and Tenant introduction.
    • VALUATIONS
      Our lettings manager Nick Williams will be more than happy to visit you at your property and provide a free of charge market appraisal at the same time identifying the key marketing features and will advise you of the rental value. He can also determine your needs carefully and advise you on any works that may be required to prepare the property for the rental market. His knowledge of the current market will also assist in assessing the demand, and likely time frame for finding a tenant(s)
    • MARKETING

      We market all our properties firstly on our website www.oakleyproperty.com which is updated daily. We are receiving between 8000+ hits a month to our website alone.

      Our advanced computer system will then automatically upload your property onto www.rightmove.co.uk and www.onthemarket.com, both of which are searchable 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We have a dedicated team of staff committed to finding a good tenant for your property as quickly as possible.

      Our prominent Shoreham office attracts a lot of professional tenants who work in the area and are looking for property in Shoreham and its surrounding areas. Being so ideally located on Brighton Road means most people in Shoreham would have passed our office at some point on their way through the town, by car or by foot. Our LED window display ensures your property can be seen day and night.

    • SELECTION OF TENANTS

      All viewings to the property will be accompanied by a member of our staff in order to maintain the security of your property, to avoid time wasting and to ensure the key letting features of your property are highlighted. We will select from our enquiries, those applicants which suit your requirements and the ones that match your property. Once a potential tenant has been identified, we ask them for a £200 holding deposit and referencing fees to secure the property whilst we conduct our very stringent referencing procedure to establish whether they are right for us.

    • REFERENCING

      Once we have negotiated and confirmed the initial terms, we will proceed with the referencing of the applicant(s). We use a professional referencing company. They will take up the following references: credit check, employment, previous Landlord. The cost of this is covered by the tenant(s).

      In the event that an applicant is in a slightly different situation i.e. someone who may have just returned from traveling and therefore has no recent employment history, we will establish what they were doing before they traveled, confirm their new position and also ask them to provide a Guarantor or pay 6 month's rent in advance. We would also fully reference the guarantor. In some instances we ask for bank statements and wages slips.

    • INVENTORY & SCHEDULE OF CONDITION

      We use a professional Inventory Company, who will mark down every item in the property for inclusion on the Inventory and who will also produce a Schedule of Condition together with digital dated photographs. The tenant will always sign to acknowledge the Inventory and Schedule of Condition. This is a very important document and is vital to the successful running of a tenancy which makes claiming any money from a tenants deposit if a property requires cleaning or maintenance at the end of the tenancy much more straight forward. They will also take meter readings.

    • TENANCY AGREEMENT

      When all checks are complete and you have given your approval we will prepare the tenancy agreement and all legal notices the tenant will sign a six month Assured Short hold Tenancy Agreement unless both parties would prefer a twelve month tenancy. The first six or twelve months are a fixed term. We can sign on your behalf and will forward the first month's rent to you. For fully managed properties we do advise the Utility companies of the new tenancy and provide them with meter readings on your behalf. We cannot however arrange for the disconnection of telephone lines or the redirection of mail to a new address.

    • CHECK IN

      The new tenant must provide the required advance rent and deposit in cleared funds before agreements are signed and keys handed over. It is required to give each tenant their own set of keys. Our trained staff will serve and explain all the necessary legal documentation and agree the Inventory and Schedule of Condition. We will then provide you and the tenants with signed copies of the Tenancy Agreement, Inventory and Schedule of Condition. Tenants also complete a standing order at this stage to cover subsequent rental payments as this method proves to be the most effective in receiving prompt payments.

    • PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

      Throughout the tenancy, if fully managed, we will deal with the day to day care of your property in order to safeguard your interests. We are happy to work with any preferred contractors that you may have, or we can provide you with one of ours. Either way we will take every reasonable measure to ensure that your property is protected. We are the tenant(s) point of contact thus releasing you from any minor irritating problems which have a habit of occurring at the most inconvenient of times.

    • INSPECTIONS

      On all of our fully managed properties, we conduct regular inspections and again we use a professional company to carry out our inventories, thus establishing that the tenants are caring for your property as you would expect. A written reported will be prepared outlining our findings and copies sent to Landlord.

    • END OF TENANCY

      When a tenancy is due to end, we will undertake a final inspection to establish the condition of the property, compared to the description contained in the original inventory and then establish if any works or cleaning is required at the cost of the tenant. Once this is agreed we will return the tenants deposit.

Here's just some of our lovely reviews...
  • Introduction

    Hi Murray, It was nice to see you this morning, and - without wishing to tempt fate - I just wanted to say what a nice couple my tenants appear to be. They seem to love the flat, and given the internal redecoration they want to carry out, I'm hoping that means they're planning on being there for some time. They're exactly the kind of tenants I was hoping for, so just a thank you for finding them. Best wishes Sam H******
