You need to start by contacting one of our Property Managers and setting up a viewing.
If a viewing is not possible due to certain circumstances, exceptions can be made but this needs to be arranged with the Property Manager.
To arrange a viewing please call 0131 6560390.
All Applicants must usually be employed and be able to prove so. Monthly earnings must be at least 3 times the amount of the rent thereby showing clear affordability. We don’t want to put your budget in a bad position down the road!
It is possible to be accepted for a tenancy by paying the full rental up front for the initial let period, but proof of identity and credit checks may still be required.
Alternatively, applicants who fail to meet the affordability requirements or pay their full rental up front for the duration of the initial lease may request to have a Guarantor. Any Guarantor will be required to meet the same criteria as detailed above for tenants.
If you are interested in one of our properties, you need to call our office (0131 6560390) and make an offer as well as pay a holding deposit equal to one-third of the monthly rental amount (minimum £200). At this stage, we will need to know some specific details about your employment status, income, previous address history, and credit status. If you have lived in the UK for less than five years we will need to ask further questions about how long you have lived in the UK and your current immigration status.
Once we have collected all the details of your offer we will need to present them to the Landlord for approval and then get quickly back to you. If more than one offer is made then we may ask the landlord to choose which offer he would like to accept but normally it works on a first-come, first-serve basis if all your details and credit checks come back positive.
