    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Flats are filled with good tenants quickly
      I have flats dotted about the place and Trueman estates are the letting agents I prefer to the others. Always amicable and when I have a void at either Oldbury or Wednesbury, the flats are filled with good tenants quickly. In around six years and four flats, we have only had one issue with a tenant - and that was following their divorce. the security checks are good and payment arrives when it should. - Tibbert Investments
    • Landlord Testimonial

      I would never go to anyone else
      I would recommend Trueman Estates all day long. They provide a top service with all the staff extremely helpful. If you are looking to rent a property within Birmingham I would definitely pop in and see Truemans first. You will not be disappointed. I have dealt with them for years and would never go to anyone else. -  Middlefield Properties

      Great estate agents; would recommend!
      Great estate agents - everyone I spoke to was friendly and helpful.

Very supportive. Return of deposit was quick and easy; would recommend. Thank you! - Miss O. Basterfield
