Landlord review for Oliver Brocklehurst, Reading

Landlord rating: 1
Avoid Oliver and his properties if you can.

Upon leaving he tried to swindle me out of cleaning deductions from my deposit (including things like cleaning my windows FROM THE OUTSIDE) and gardening. I successfully got my full deposit back because I went to the deposit protection scheme and put a claim in. It took months to get what I rightfully deserve (no deposit deductions!) even though Oliver tried intimidating me with all the evidence he supposedly had against me etc. He didn't upload a single thing to the protection scheme.

At one point we had a builder doing some work, no problem, the thing is he arrived unannounced and was on our balcony hours before Oliver said he would arrive. Oliver let us know later that the builder had served time for murdering his late wife with an axe in public. Somehow Oliver thought it was appropriate for this man to be doing work on our house outside of specified times in a house consisting only of young women.

Oliver will come unannounced for viewings, most of the time giving less than 24hrs notice and parade people around (during covid). He will also come to just check-in and will bite your head off over issues he's had with past tenants etc. He will also take MONTHS to resolve anything, if he ever gets around to them.

The bathroom was full of mold, kitchen had a faulty hob (only 3 hob spaces for a house with 6 double bedrooms!), not enough storage space, broken sofa... you get the idea. I barely stayed to cover my 6 month tenancy but couldn't wait to get out. Don't recommend.

Old, health and safety breaches everywhere, mold, broken sofa etc. He will also claim you need to do the gardening and after doing it he will deduct money from your deposit to bring garden waste to facilities etc.

Headington is a bit boring, but you do have a few supermarkets around, coffee shops, some nice charity shops etc. Not the worst but also not the most vibrant part of Oxford.
