Once you have found your new home the next step is for you to start the referencing process, all references are carried out by a third party professional. These are recommended checks that confirm your personal details, employment status and affordability. Once referencing has been completed we will agree the move in date with you and the landlord and all the necessary legal documents will be sent to you via email for you to read and e-sign.

OUTSTANDING TENANT SERVICES & ADVICE
True Homes agents love what we do and pride ourselves on having a unique perspective on the entire process of matching people with homes. From the little things we see that others miss, to the neighbourhoods we know like the back of our hands, because where others see customers, we see people, and where others see houses, we see TRUE HOMES.
May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter and every window open great possibilities.
The best time to buy a home is always five years ago.
Don’t wait to buy a house, buy a house and wait.
Rather than deal with several different companies, with true homes you can visit us for all your property requirements, and to be sure of consistent, high-quality service.
Selling and letting property is our core business, but we do not stop there. We offer a wide range of services including property finance, insurance, valuations, and property management.
At True Homes Lettings, we believe its right to give the landlord as much security as possible and as the government have recently stopped tenants from having to pay admin fee’s – we do not believe this should mean the landlord has to foot the bill. Therefore, we are keeping all our fee’s as low as possible while keeping the standard of service high. We can offer a tenant find fee for £295.00 with noVAT management fee. If you are looking for a tenant find only service, we can offer that for £325.00 including VAT which will include our marketing, and quality vetting checks, inclusive of inventory confirmation.
