Once you have found a property to let with Trueman Estates you will need to pay the security deposit to take it off the market (this is always £100 more than the monthly rent unless otherwise stated).
Once the security deposit has been paid we will check your suitability by conducting references. This will include a credit check, an employment reference, and a previous landlord’s reference. We will also confirm your right to live and work in the UK and seek proof of your identity and that of anyone living with you.
On the day you are due to move into your new home, all tenants (and guarantors if applicable) are required to come into our office to collect the keys and complete all the relevant paperwork.
Prior to the commencement of the tenancy and before you are able to collect your keys you will need to pay your first months rent and a one off administration fee as outlined here.
Rent thereafter will be due on the same day each month as the commencement date of your tenancy agreement, payable by standing order, unless otherwise agreed.
At the same time as collecting your keys you will be supplied with an inventory detailing the condition of the property and the meter readings, a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), an annual Gas Safety Certificate (if applicable) and a copy of the Governments 'How to Rent guide'. Your security deposit will also be registered with a government-backed Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme.
If your landlord has chosen to have Trueman Estates manage the property, our dedicated and friendly team will be on hand to assist you throughout your tenancy.
