Whether you are a student, working professional, living alone or have a family in Edinburgh, one of the most important decisions that you will ever have to make is probably finding the right kind of property to rent in Edinburgh. There are a number of important factors which you must consider before renting particular Edinburgh flats to rent. Rest of this article will outline these factors.


Firstly, you must make a budget forecast. This will include the monthly rent along with other financial outgoings, the initial deposit. This budget will outline all the costs for you so that you don’t go overboard when making a decision with regards to property to rent in Edinburgh.

Listing property features

Another important factor is to make a list of all the features that you want in a property, be it, flat in Edinburgh or house in Edinburgh. In this list you should include the number of bedrooms you require, transport facilities, parking space, proximity to local markets, garden, nearby schools and universities if you have a kids living with you, etc.

Searching for the property

You can now start searching for a flat in Edinburgh or a house in Edinburgh keeping in mind the listed features and the set budget. You can begin this search by looking through local newspapers, advertisements on university and college boards. You will find plenty of Edinburgh flats to rent ads here. There are also a number of online property websites which list a huge number of Edinburgh to let properties. These properties are listed with pictures, virtual property tours, prices, area information etc. Besides this you can also hire the services of a letting agent and benefit from his expert knowledge of the local markets. All you need to do is inform him of your requirements and preferences and the rest will be his job.

Property viewing

Once a property viewing is arranged, you must always take someone along for the sake of security and inspection. Also take a notebook (to list all the pros and cons) and a camera( to take pictures which will help you to come to a decision later on) with you. You must thoroughly check the property (exterior and interior). You can start negotiating with the landlord and entering into a tenancy agreement only when you are fully satisfied with the property.
