I live overseas so I trusted Oakwood Estates to look after my property both as a rental and as a sales prospect for 5 years between April 2014 and August 2019. My experiences with Oakwood Estates have been:
- All inspection reports and sales information had very creative or archive photographs, and misleading statements, which failed to show the true state of the property; It was only after my new agents took photos and sent them to me that I realized the full extent of the issues with the property;
- The front and back gardens were completely unmaintained by tenants and were extremely overgrown and were seriously impacting all my neighbours;
- They apparently returned tenant security deposits and charged me as owner for all tenant damages or failed to highlight tenant damages to the property or to remediate the damages to the property from the tenant security deposit;
- They allowed tenants to store all my appliances and part of the kitchen cabinet fittings in the back garden for 18 months without my knowledge or consent, then fraudulently stated in their check out report that the appliances were moved to the back garden by the owner;
- They allowed tenants to remove kitchen cabinets from the kitchen and shelving from the office, which are now missing from the property and they have failed to reimburse me for them;
- They allowed the tenant to remove fairly new bathroom flooring and replace it with defective and dangerous flooring, which despite my stating that this was tenant responsibility, Oakwood then stole the replacement costs from my rent rather than the tenant security deposit and are now refusing to reimburse me until I agree to give up all my other damage claims against them for negligence;
- They failed to remove tenant trash left behind after tenant vacated the property;

Never, ever let Oakwood Estates either sell or rent out your property if you are not there to watch over your property. If my house came back looking tired, then the gardens were in dire need of life support and they put my house on the sales market in a completely unfit state.
I had my property painted inside and out and all new fitted carpets before they took over managing the property. It looked like a slum when I got it back. I would give them 0 or even -1 stars for how they treated my property over the years and the inaccuracy of the inspection reports I was getting from Oakwoods.

Kindly note that legally, letting agents need to publish information about their tenancy fees, government-approved redress schemes and client money protection schemes on their website and on third party websites (on which agents are listed).

Complaints Procedure

Complaints Procedure


Providing an excellent customer service is important to Oakwood Estates and in the vast majority of cases this is exactly what you will receive. However, just occasionally, something goes wrong and a customer, unfortunately, has cause to complain. If this happens, we will always acknowledge receipt of your complaint within 5 working days and do everything we can to speedily resolve the problem.


This can usually be best achieved by contacting the person you originally dealt with. That person will expect to hear from you if you are unhappy and will aim to resolve your complaint on the same day. While we would like to hear from you by telephone, should you decide to write to us, we will call you with the same objective in mind.


If an immediate solution cannot be achieved because further investigation is necessary, we will let you know straight away.


Should our investigation take longer than anticipated, which will only happen if the circumstances are particularly complex, we will explain why and we will make sure you are provided with regular updates. We will not normally allow any complaint to be unresolved for more than 4 weeks, as we will always agree a course of action with you within this time.


Alternatively, you can contact our Head office:


Fax: 01753 889051

Email: enquiries@oakwood-estates.co.uk

Post: Customer Services, Oakwood Estates, 6 Latchmoor Way, Gerrards Cross, Bucks, SL9 8LP

In the unlikely event that you are still unhappy with how your complaint is being handled or resolved, we have in place an escalation procedure which means that you can request the involvement of an appropriate director. Head Office will facilitate this for you. You can contact them using the details above.


If, at the end of this process, you still remain dissatisfied with the outcome, you have the right to take your complaint to the relevant Ombudsman Service. They will consider your complaint totally impartially and we are bound by their decision. We do hope, however, that your complaint will have been resolved much earlier and you will not find it necessary to take this action.
