Private Sector Leasing
Link provides a property management service to the City of Edinburgh Council’s Private Sector Leasing (PSL) Scheme which helps people who are in need of housing.
We are looking for one, two and three-bedroom properties to join the scheme.
What is the Private Sector Leasing Scheme Edinburgh?
The City of Edinburgh Council leases properties in Edinburgh from private landlords for three years and these are then sublet to people who are in housing need, under a Scottish Short Secure Tenancy (SSST).
We are the point of contact for landlords and we share the responsibility of renting. We also offer landlords great benefits and peace of mind.
