Link2Let

Link2Let is a leading provider of Mid-Market Rent and market rent homes throughout Central Scotland. 

This section includes information on Mid-Market Rent, eligibility criteria, and how to apply for a Mid-Market Rent property.  

Mid-Market Rent (or MMR) is an initiative from the Scottish Government to provide quality, affordable homes for low to moderate income households. MMR tenants are typically those who would not qualify for social housing but cannot afford to pay market rent or buy a property.  

 

Do I qualify for Mid Market Rent? 

To qualify for MMR, your (gross) annual income should not exceed £27,953 per household for single applications or £45,836 for joint applications. For properties in Edinburgh, your household income should not exceed £39,067 per annum. 

As part of the application process, you will be required to provide your most recent three months’ bank statements and payslips. These will be used to carry out an affordability assessment, comparing the monthly rent for the property to your monthly income. The monthly rent must not exceed 45% of your (net) monthly household income. A credit check is carried out once your application has been approved.
