C~urb is a new commercial subsidiary of Link group with a focus on sustainability. C~urb Lettings incorporates Link2Let and Weslo Property Management into one brand.
We are an accredited member of Landlord Accreditation Scotland, which promotes high standards across the housing industry.
Do I qualify for Mid Market Rent?
Your annual income (before tax) should not be more than £47,143.20 per household. For properties in Edinburgh, this amount is £45,443.
All adults who will be living in the property must provide proof of their income, whether or not they will be named on the tenancy agreement. 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.
You will need 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 be more than 40% of your (net) monthly household income.
A credit check is carried out once your application has been approved.
