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 have to wait a long time 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 £47,143.20 per household. For properties in Edinburgh, your (gross) annual income should not exceed £45,443 per household.

All adults who will be residing in the property must provide proof of their income, regardless of whether they will be on the tenancy agreement or not. Applicants with family members living in the property, who are not their spouse (for example a child of working age or elderly relative), are only required to provide proof of their income if they are going to be named on the tenancy as a joint tenant.

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. Please note: your application may be affected if your bank statements show evidence of returned or missed payments, unauthorised overdraft usage, debt management programmes, or use of short-term ‘pay-day’ or high interest lending. 

The monthly rent must not exceed 40% of your (net) monthly household income. A credit check is carried out once your application has been approved.
