Are Wishes Becoming Reality In The Rental Market?

Despite unsettledness in the lettings industry, caused by changing legislation and parliamentary rumblings, there remains no shortage of good reasons to be a landlord.

In East Lothian we’re seeing not only high demand for rental properties, but also high demand from long-term tenants.


The vast majority of our tenants in East Lothian are turning the properties they let into their homes and staying in situ well beyond the typical 6-12 months of a standard Short Assured Tenancy Agreement.

Edinburgh and the Lothians continue to be the best part of Scotland to own a buy-to-let.


A recent report from Citylets showed strong rents continuing to increase in Edinburgh, where elsewhere in the country rents were levelling out and, in some cases, falling.

Through all this strengthening in the market, demand for our services has also grown.


Thanks in large part to the wonderful referrals given by our customers on the back of strong service, we doubled in size in 2015 whilst continuing to build great long-term relationships with our landlords.

To all our landlords and tenants, thank you for your support of Fidra Lettings. We look forward to another exciting year working together.
