    Marketing Your Property

    The Internet has revolutionised the way we all find information, and searching for property is no exception. In fact the overwhelming majority of tenant enquiries are now received via the internet.

    Trueman Estates have responded to this demand and will advertise your property on Rightmove, the UK's largest property website, as well as our own Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages within 24 hours of your instruction.

    We are also very proud to be able to showcase your property using the latest cutting edge technology. Our 360° virtual property tours use the very latest technology to allow prospective tenants to easily navigate their way around your property prior to viewing, using only their mouse, keyboard or finger on smartphones and tablets.

    With our office situated in a prominent area of Harborne your property will also be displayed in one of our illuminated window cards and seen by many passers-by.

    We will also place a traditional 'To Let' board outside the property, unless otherwise instructed, and communicate the details to our extensive database of prospective tenants.

    Premium Management Service

    Even the most conscientious of tenants can sometimes become unable to pay their rent due to a change in circumstances outside of their control.

    We understand that as a landlord, any missed rental payments could impact your income or risk your ability to make mortgage payments for your buy-to-let investment.

    That's why we are pleased to offer a Premium Management Service that includes Rent Guarantee and Legal Expenses Cover as standard, ensuring that you will still receive your rental income, should the unexpected occur.

    With this service Trueman Estates handle every aspect of the letting process from start to finish and are the first point of contact for the tenant throughout the duration of the tenancy.

    Unlike many other letting agents, Trueman Estates only charge a FAIR and ONE OFF administration fee. We don't charge tenants for tenancy renewals, inventories, check-ins, check-outs, inspections, deposit protection or for any future references after vacating a property.

    Our Administration Fee is outlined below:

    First Applicant: £210.00 (incl. VAT)
    Each additional Applicant: £60.00 (incl. VAT)
    Each Guarantor: £60.00 (incl. VAT)

    (i.e. 2 applicants = £270 and 3 applicants = £330 etc)

    Our administration fee is a ONE OFF fee and there will be no other fees payable during the lifetime of your tenancy.

    Holding Deposits & Securing a Property

    In order to secure a property you will be required to pay a holding deposit in advance. This is always one months rent plus £100.00 unless otherwise stated.

    Upon completion you will then be required to pay the administration fee(s) and first months rent and your holding deposit will be sent to the Deposit Protection Service.

    *Please note holding deposits are non refundable unless the property is unavailable on your completion date.


  • paragraph

    Referencing
    image cannot be displayed


    References are conducted online by an approved credit reference agency via email to process your application as quickly as possible.

    Once the holding deposit has been paid, prospective tenants will receive an email with an online form to complete.

    Once your form is completed the following reference checks will be carried out:

    • Credit Check
    • Employers Reference
    • Affordability Check (based on a minimum annual income of 30 times the monthly rent)
    • Previous Landlord Reference (if applicable)

    Prospective tenants will only be allowed to complete on a property upon a satisfactory reference check.

    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!
