Designed with modern renters in mind

Our homes at The Oaks have been carefully designed and built in house by our specialist teams. We have created a neighbourhood of modern, energy efficient homes with spacious layouts and high quality finishes, for our residents to enjoy and stay as long as they love.

Meet Dave your resident services manager

Dave is the resident services manager for The Oaks. Dave joined Placefirst in 2020, and has built great relationships with residents across his neighbourhoods.

Our resident services managers are with you from first viewing of an available property, to checking in and showing you round on moving day, and is your point of contact to support you throughout your time in a Placefirst home.


Energy efficient homes

Energy efficiency is a huge priority for us and for our residents. Having energy efficient homes not only improves the quality of the homes for the residents but also lowers energy consumption and lowers bills. This contributes towards the stress-free renting experience that Placefirst is known for.

EPC ratings - and how they benefit renters

We're focused on achieving high EPC ratings for our homes. There are real benefits to living in a home with a higher EPC rating, and the rating itself can help you understand how energy efficient your home will be.

The key thing to know is that the higher the EPC rating, the lower your energy bills will be. It also means that homes with a higher rating are able to achieve a lower carbon footprint.

Quality living.
