Lettings

Wheatley Estates have been letting local properties for decades.

Wheatley and the surrounding areas are very much in demand by tenants. With easy access to the City of Oxford and great commuter links to London it’s seen as a very desirable area for professionals and families who still want a more rural, village lifestyle.

For tenants we offer some of the best rental properties in and around Wheatley, Horspath and Garsington. For landlords we offer a tenant find or full property management service that will allow you to let your property for long or short leases, finding you the best tenants and handling the entire process.

We had two estate agents selling it,Wheatley estate agents were leagues ahead with every aspect of the sale,from how they showed clients round,to how dad was treated through every step of the sale.

As a local estate agent the personal touch spoke volumes compared to the cold, uncaring attitude we experienced from the larger High street chain. David went the extra mile and I thank you very much.
KW
Through the whole process David, Julie and Sue were always there at the end of the phone, they gave us regular updates, chased solicitors constantly on our behalf until the sale was completed. It is one of the most stressful things in life, but if you have a team behind you like this then it really does help and they really do bend over backwards for their clients and have your best interest at heart.

David and his team were extremely helpful and professional throughout the sale of our property. Even when our sale collapsed they were back on the case and we sold again within one day! Would recommend them to anyone.

We had a great experience buying a house marketed through Wheatley estates. David was endlessly helpful through what proved to be quite a complicated purchase.
