    Help where it is needed...
    image cannot be displayed

    Moving home can often be a very stressful time - whether you are buying or renting! That's where we can help. At Oakwood homes we will professionally advise you throughout the letting process and during your tenancy term to minimise the pressure involved and ensure your voice is heard! Your satisfaction is of course our future!

    All tenancies will require referencing and this usually takes just a few days. Our fee for the referencing of any tenant is £120 for the lead application with subsequent references at £80. In most circumstances a minimum of one month's deposit will also be required along with the first month's rental payment in advance. That's it! NO hidden costs that we often hear about with some other companies.

    In receipt of Housing Benefit..? Not a problem! Many of our Landlords will consider your application, but you will require a suitable home owner and working guarantor.

    Why not search our properties on-line? You can call us on 08456 44 0707 to register or e-mail us direct at lettings@oakwoodhomes.biz.

       'Instinctive trust' - A recent independent survey placed 'instinctive trust' at the top of a customers list as being the number 1 main reason for choosing their agent. That's probably why Oakwood lettings do so well. When we are entrusted with a clients' business we treat it as our own. Simply - if we wouldn't do something for ourselves, then we don't do it for our clients. Your future, whether that be as a Landlord or Tenant, is important to us - so we will go the extra mile to make sure your experience with us is a good one. We will always remember that your satisfaction - is our future....!

      Mr S Ackroyd

      I have an exstensive portfolio throught the South East - Oakwood's are certainly among the best agents I deal with. No void periods are key to my business and cash flow and they constantly work with my interest in mind - rarely do I have a property empty for any length of time.

      I have used 3 letting agents in Thanet and found Oakwood homes to be the most professional.

      If your chain falls through - we can help...!
      image cannot be displayed


      FACT - more than 1 in 3 house sales fall through in the UK every year! Sadly, current legislation allows buyers or sellers to withdraw from an agreed sale right up until exchange, leaving innocent parties with broken dreams and a hefty bill to settle! Unfortunately, this will remain a problem until the law changes.

      The good news is that Oakwood homes CAN HELP! Being aware of the ongoing problems sellers face - we have put in place a SOLUTION.

      SIMPLE, QUICK and EFFECTIVE!

      If you have sold and are involved in a chain where someone below has pulled out, you will inevitably be adversely affected. That?s where we can step in! Oakwood homes can offer Chain Break Solutions. We will inspect the property causing the delay (wherever that may be in the UK) and subject to a satisfactory survey, make an offer to buy and exchange within 28 days! That means you will still be able to complete on your intended purchase?!

      NO FUSS, NO DELAYS, NO WORRIES!


      What's the catch...?

      Quite simply - none! Rather than allowing our clients to be faced with uncertainties, we want them to be assured that should they face a problem, we do have an answer?! As long as the subject property offers suitable title and passes our survey and valuation, we will make an offer! What?s more, we will also pay the sellers legal fees for the conveyance! All very straightforward.

      Oakwood homes 'Chain Break Solutions' - a refreshing approach to common problem...!
