Mid Market Rent explained

Mid-market rent homes are homes for rent to households on low to middle incomes where rent is generally set lower than private rent but higher than Council or Housing Association rent.

These homes are aimed at households who do not have priority for social rented accommodation, are not in a position to buy their own property or are unable to afford private sector rents in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh Living homes offer the safety and security of a long-term let, at a fair rent, in a choice of areas throughout the city.
