I approached Oakfield with a view to renting one of the properties on their books. After several hundred pounds for various fees, including a refudable fee of £153 for having a bugie!! so long as he does not trash the place of course, the date for occupying the property approached.
Having agreed a time and date for the move and set in motion the removals, trying to get the keys at the agreed time was refused on the premise that an inventory check had yet to be started. This despite the previous tenants having moved out 36 hours earlier. After a few heated words Hollie was dispatched to carry out the check and, after 3 hours, I was able to have the keys much to the relief of the removals crew. Since then the Oakfield crew have done what they can to remedy the short comings in the flat.
Unfortunately Oakfield is constrained by the landlord, there was no heating, just one convector heater was then provided. There was no washing machine conection, pay for it yourself was the remedy. Having done this of course the landlord will be able to claim the credit on the next let. Insufficient insulation in the roofspace was the next problem, contact your enegy supplier was the answer.
Overall, my experience with this let was not a happy one, being stressful and very expensive with more expense to come at the end of the let. Despite this the Oakfield crew dealt with a vey unhappy client with patience, good humour and manners.
