Renting apartment in Edinburgh

Post New Topic

Hello! I am new to this site so forgive me if this topic has been exhausted. Quick question...my husband and I travel to Edinburgh at least three times per year to visit family and work with a musical theatre school. We have decided it would be advantageous for us to rent a studio or 1 bedroom apartment long term to keep us from having to make new arrangements every time we visit. Question...is it difficult for a Yank to let an apartment long-term in the UK, considering we'll only actually be living there approximately 3-6 months out of the year (although other family members and friends might be using it)? Can you give us any advice and or things we need to consider (what realtor/landlord will expect from us re: proof of income, etc? Any advice you can give us would be most welcome. Thanks very much.

Any letting agent will want to run a credit reference on you, so proof of income would be essential. The lease will most likely require you to notify the landlord of any absence from the property of more than 2 weeks (this duration varies), the landlord's insurance will no doubt require that the property is not left vacant/unvisited for more than 1 month so he/she needs to know if you are away. Some letting agents will provide am empty care service where they will visit regularly when you are away from the property - at a charge.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
