Oasis Living is an online lettings and property management platform that combines technology and with traditional letting and management operations to deliver an efficient way to let, secure, and maintain your property. We believe that the current process to rent a home is outdated. In an age when we can order a car with click of a button, or order food from our favourite restaurant within a few minutes, finding and renting a home should be easy. We are re-imagining how renting should be in a new world
Landlords - We provide you with all the tools to list their property in one secure place, such as drafting and signing of contracts and collecting rent. Our property team will come see your place, stage it if necessary, take amazing pictures and find you high quality tenants in no time
Tenants - We provide you with well-vetted, well-maintained properties that you will love to stay. We are quick - from first enquiry to setting up a viewing takes a very short time, and we will help you move to your new home within a week
There are very few overhead costs for running an online lettings service compared to a high-street agent. With the technology Oasis Living uses, the number of administrative tasks are reduced – which means we can offer competitive pricing structures.
We cover postcodes throughout the whole of the UK, meaning you can list your property whether you live in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland – subject to local area regulations. If you would like any more information, please contact us directly.
Oasis Living doesn’t currently allow adverts for private rooms HMO. However, this will be coming soon! You can contact us for more information.
Certainly. In this case, you won’t need to involve your departing tenant – you would simply need to subscribe to Oasis Living and create your property profile. You can then invite your tenants to register and offer the property through Oasis Living. You will be able to transact, sign agreements, collect rent, communicate and store all documents on Oasis Living.
If you don’t want to take advantage of our Tenant Team Up offer, we advise that you conduct the viewings yourself. You know the property much better than the agents do, and doing it yourself will increase the chances of a viewer putting in an offer as you can tell them more about the property than anyone else.
There is no limit to how many photos you upload, but we recommend having at least one clear photograph of every room and of the exterior if possible. More information on how to take photos for your property is available here.
If you are unsure about how much you want to let your property for, Oasis Living can help you choose a realistic valuation according to current market conditions. Read our article on how much rent you can charge. You can also get in touch with one of our team members, who will be happy to guide you on the rental price.
Oasis Living is part of the Client Money Protection Scheme. The Client Money Protection Scheme was introduced in 2019 and obliges all letting agents be registered members. CMP schemes protect your money (rent and deposit monies) which is received by agents.

Oasis Living recommends listing your property between four to six weeks before it’s vacant. Please bear in mind that your best exposure on property portals will be when you first list – this is because your property will appear as new.

As well as listing your property on Oasis Living’s website, we advertise on all the major portals – including Rightmove, Zoopla and PrimeLocation. These portals get millions of renters visiting daily, who are all looking for a new rental home.
Rightmove statistics have proved that people searching on property listings with a floor plan spend 35% longer than one without. The longer people spend looking at your listing, the better it is for you. Oasis Living provides a professional floor plan

Oasis Living is an online lettings platform that combines technology and community to deliver an efficient way to let, secure, and maintain your property. We provide landlords and departing tenants with all the tools to list their property in one secure place, such as drafting and signing of contracts and collecting rent. Landlords and tenants working together creates a smoother overall process and helps to minimise void periods.
Oasis Living’s card transactions are processed through our trusted providers, Stripe (for credit card payments) and Truelayer (for UK and EU bank payments). We don’t store any of your credit card data, nor do we share any information with third parties.
The majority of properties take between 5 and 10 days to let. If it is taking longer to find a new tenant than you would like, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our team members. They will be able to offer advice on how you can speed up the letting process.
We believe that current tenants or landlords are best suited to conduct viewings. As the landlord, you may wish to do the viewings yourself, or you might opt for the Tenant Team Up package. Overall, the process is smoother when communication takes place directly between the person living in the property and the viewer. No one knows the property better than yourself or the tenants currently living there.
Oasis Living doesn’t require sole agency, and you are welcome to use as many agents as you like. However, if the departing tenant finds a new tenant and you decide to use another agency for the contracts, the departing tenant will still be due one week’s worth of rent as per the Tenant Team Up package.

Oasis Living provides a complete overview for landlords so they can communicate with renters, see real-time transactions and go through the entire lettings process with a hassle-free experience.
Tenancy deposit replacement is becoming increasingly popular amongst tenants. It provides the same level of protection as a regular security deposit but costs less for the tenant. The result will likely see them moving into properties faster, thus reducing void periods. More information about tenancy deposit replacement is available here.
Oasis Living is for landlords and tenants who are tired of a lettings industry that refuses to evolve with the times. We are driven by technology and place an emphasis on human interaction. Our landlords enjoy total support, cheaper fees, and take care of every part of the process. By connecting landlords and tenants directly, Oasis Living offers faster tenancies, reduced void periods and Tenant Team Up, which enables landlords to enlist the help of departing tenants to secure new ones.

Oasis Living is proud to be part of the following associations:
You need to pay a security deposit when moving into a property, which is capped at five week’s rent: eg, if you pay £1,300 per month in rent, the security deposit due will be £1,500. The deposit is covered by the deposit protection scheme and is returned to you once the tenancy is over, barring any damage caused by yourself to the property. The Oasis Living Zero Security Deposit is an alternative to the traditional deposit and sees tenants pay a one-time, non-refundable fee that equates to one week’s rent. The scheme offers the same protections as a regular deposit, but is cheaper, more flexible and passes the savings onto you. Oasis Living Zero Security Deposit is available at the discretion of the landlord.
Landlords have the final say on whether pets are allowed in the property. All property listings on Oasis Living indicate if pets are allowed in the property.
We will never ask you to pay for anything outside of our site, through email, or a third-party. If someone asks you to send money outside of Oasis Living, please alert us immediately.
We will only ask you to pay via website links that should be SSL secured and have oasis-living.com as domain, or via bank transfer to accounts that are strictly in company name, Regents Partners Ltd t/a Oasis Living
Any payment changes to how you pay rent must be done directly through your bank.
Arranging a viewing on Oasis Living is easy. When you find a property that you like, click on the ‘request a viewing’ button and select a time and date that best suits you. The property manager will then get back to you to confirm the date and time, with all communication taking place through the Oasis Living dashboard.
You can still rent a property if you have bad credit. Ultimately, the decision will come down to the landlord, and they may ask you to provide a guarantor for extra security.
The holding deposit (sometimes also called the reservation fee) is payable to the landlord/letting agent and secures the property to take it off the lettings market. Once the contract is signed, the holding deposit will be put towards the first month’s rent.
Landlords may ask you to provide a guarantor if they don’t feel confident you will be able to pay the rent or if you haven’t passed referencing. If your net household income is at least 2.5x the amount of rent the household needs to pay, then you probably do not need a guarantor. A guarantor will most likely be needed if you are a student and sometimes if you are a self-employed. If you are unsure of whether you might need a guarantor, please contact our tenant care team
