Hello all It says that First impression is the best impression. Lauren perfectly fits into this description. I have recently sought the help of Oakfield to get my property on to the market. Lauren has been very positive and most importantly very transparent from day one of our meeting. She's been very professional and systematic in her approach. I definitely recommend Oakfield to anyone lost in the path of buying and selling properties. Thank you Lauren....

The Staff at Oakfield are superb, especially Lauren Vousden. Lauren has been totally professional at every stage in the sales process, from advising us in relation to the marketing price through to viewings of prospective properties for us to purchase. Lauren excelled during the negotiation process and was instrumental in achieving the price we wanted for the property. We couldn't be more satisfied and have already recommended Lauren to friends!...

I met Lauren when she came to value our flat in February to discuss putting it on the market. Her manner absolutely set her apart from the other estate agents that had called over. She had a comfortable and friendly manner yet her knowledge and ability to discuss the sale was more detailed. She also listened to what we wanted in terms of an onward purchase. Once she had secured our sale through Oakfield she has remained attentive to any queries and has not treated us as simply a sales figure to...

It was a paricularly traumatic event in my life but Heather and Richard , as well as Lauren and the rest of the team brought me through it.

My experience with Oakfield was not the best one. I'm the four years I lived in the flat rented from you I have not had a single inspection and only last year I had a request for one but the time was not convenient for me so I've never heard back. The roof in my flat leaked for pretty much the whole winter until the landlord had to replace the whole roof because one evening I woke up and I had to put a bucket to collect the water coming through - if anyone form oakfield bothered to come in a...

Although I found the legal process stressful and lengthy, the girls at Oakfield Eastbourne were extremely helpful and patient with my almost daily emails to them!

Charlotte has been the most tremendous estate agent to have dealing with what turned out to be a rather tricky sale. She is very professional, knowledgeable and diplomatic. She answered any queries I had quickly and thoroughly with enthusiasm when at times ,as the seller , I was perplexed by the process. I cannot recommend and praise her enough and urge new customers to seek her out....

Complaints Procedure

Complaints

Oakfield has a formal complaints procedure, which is explained below;

As an Oakfield customer you would expect a first class service from us, and we aim to provide it. We have high
standards, but if you believe we have made a mistake, please get in touch with us as soon as possible and we will
do everything we can to put it right.

We are also subject to the rules of The Property Ombudsman. In general terms this gives customers who are
unable to resolve a complaint against us the right to have this reviewed by an independent person Ҁ“
the Ombudsman.

We hope that our complaints procedure will resolve any complaint without the need for you to contact The
Property Ombudsman. Please note that the Ombudsman will not investigate your complaint before you have
completed our complaints procedure, and received a letter from us giving our final response.

This document shows the steps in our complaints procedure. At every stage we promise to listen and do
everything we can to resolve your problem, and to make sure you're happy with the way we do it.

Our Complaints Procedure

1. If you have a problem relating to Oakfield, please discuss this with one of our branch staff. Our aim is to deal
with your problem sympathetically, fairly and quickly.

2
. If you feel that the matter is not being resolved to your satisfaction, please ask to speak to the Manager of the
Branch dealing with your enquiry. The Manager will try to resolve the matter on the day you raise your complaint,
although whether this is possible will, of course, depend on the nature of the complaint.

3. If the response by our Branch Manager does not resolve the matter to your satisfaction, you can ask the
Manager to refer the complaint to our Financial Director, alternatively you can write to her at the following
address:

Miss Samantha Hensher, Oakfield, Haig House, Station Road, Hastings, East Sussex, TN34 1NH

We request that all correspondence adheres to the details and that all complaints are put in a numerical order to
help us respond to the complaints with a clear and concise structure.
A letter of acknowledgement will be sent to you within 3 working days. It will also set out our understanding of
your complaint, and state when we will be able to reply in greater detail.
You may also be asked for additional information if this is required to assist resolving the matter.
A formal written outcome of this investigation will be sent to you within 15 working days.

4. If your problem has still not been resolved by the Director, please write to her again. Your letter should state
why you are still dissatisfied and what further action you wish Oakfield to take to fully resolve yourcomplaint.
The Financial Director will then give a final response by letter within 7 working days. This will be accompanied
by The Property Ombudsman Consumer Guide.

5. If you are still not satisfied with the steps taken by Oakfield, you can write to:
The Property Ombudsman Ltd, 4 Bridge Street, Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP1 2LX
(Telephone: (01722) 333306 or e-mail: admin@tpo.co.uk).

6. The Property Ombudsman will consider your complaint, taking in to account any points made by you and
Oakfield. The Ombudsman may, however, refuse to investigate a complaint where your issue refers to something
that happened more than 12 months before you complained in writing to the Member Agency, or you referred
your complaint to the Ombudsman more than six months after you received the Member AgencyҀ™s final offer of
settlement or answer.

7. The OmbudsmanҀ™s Office may try to settle the dispute by agreement between you and Oakfield. If this is
unsuccessful, the Ombudsman will consider all the relevant factors and make a decision according to what he
believesto be fair in all the circumstances.

8. The Ombudsman will send his decision to you and Oakfield. You can accept or reject his decision. If you reject
the Ombudsman's decision, it will lapse and you are free to do as you wish. If you wish to take legal action, you
can do so. Your legal rights will not have been affected by the Ombudsman's decision.
