Finding a property

Oakton Estates maintain an extensive database of properties available to rent and prospective tenants and their requirements. As properties become available, our first action is to contact the tenants on the database whose requirements match the property. Contact us, to enter your requirements on our database.

Viewing

Having found suitable properties that match your criteria, Oakton Estates will then arrange for accompanied viewings to be carried out at a mutually convenient time.

Application

Having found the property you want, you are required to complete our Tenant Application Form. This is to include all relevant information on you (the Tenant) but it also helps us to know what other requirements you may need, including date of occupancy and duration of letting. Upon completing a Tenant Application Form an application charge will be required of £225.00 inclusive of vat, £75.00 inclusive of vat for any subsequent applicant and £50.00 inclusive of vat for pets. This fee is non refundable should you not proceed with the tenancy.

References

Oakton Estates will seek references on behalf of the Landlord. This could include your employer, present or previous landlord and a character reference. A credit check may be sought if the tenant is unable to supply us with satisfactory paperwork/documentation. Where a tenant is unable to meet the required income, the tenant can have a Guarantor agree to pay any rental payments for which a fee of £75.00 inclusive of vat will be payable.

Rents

Rents are normally based on a calendar month basis. The tenant is normally responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs.

Deposits

A deposit (usually equivalent to one and a half month's rent) is required prior to occupation. This is usually paid at the time of signing the Agreement. This deposit is held in the Tenants Deposit Scheme.

Upon signing of tenancy agreement

A month’s rental and the deposit are required at the time of signing the agreement.

    Helen, October 2015
  • It took a while to sell our house as one buyer withdrew after several months. However, throughout the process I found Oakton to be diligent in their attempts to market the property, supportive and sympathetic with my frustration over the delays and sincere in their endeavour to get a fair deal for me. Always ready to help in any way they can, I found them to be an extremely friendly and highly professional team whom I would recommend without hesitation.

    N. Bevan, September 2015
  • Hi Rachel and Mike,
    Thank you very much for the friendly, professional and efficient service provided in the disposal of our property. It has been an absolute pleasure in dealing with you both and my only regret was not getting to know and use your services sooner in the disposal of the other properties we had in Birmingham.
    All the best for the future.
