Consider a long-term tenancy if your short-term or holiday let license is refused
New legislation from 1st October 2022 requires all holiday and short-term lets to gain planning permission and a licence. If you’re unable to continue offering short-term accommodation, we can help you find a great long-term tenant. We offer free advice to all landlords.
We have published a helpful leaflet that highlights the recent issues in the Private Rental Sector (PRS) in Edinburgh, and explains why switching to a long-term tenancy could be a great option for you, and beneficial for the city and communities within. Click below:

Are you finding it difficult to sell your Edinburgh property? Why not let it out?
