Property Review
Flat is alright, floors are very old, toilet is a joke, kitchen is very limited as well. Front door doesn’t fully shut, and windows are awful. We got new furniture so that was nice, but in general it’s a very small flat.
Agency Review
Avoid at all costs!! They were terrible!!! Carried out flat inspections without warning us, didn’t repair the broken things which were broken upon us moving in. Our boiler was broken for the full tenancy and despite us reporting it several times, they never fixed it. They also falsely advertised the flat by saying it had furniture and we then moved in to an empty flat. Took weeks of us chasing them and eventually we got some furniture.
Landlord Review
We never got to meet her since we rented through an agency, but would not recommend, took ages to repair so we had to report to the council. They’ve charged us extortionate fees for cleaning (we left the flat very clean, so was disappointing to see).

Genuinely the weirdest flat situation I have been in, landlord still had her stuff all over the flat, so much so that we weren’t allowed in the living room as it was chock a block with her crap. Business cards for her suspicious (almost scam looking) side projects, all in al very bizarre. The kitchen was an absolute state all of the time which wasn’t really the other tenants fault and more to do with the amount of stuff there was, couldn’t use the drawers in the kitchen as she (landlord) used it for all her crap, (weird memorabilia, aprons, old photos, etc) bathroom hadn’t been updated in many many years and was disgusting. All in all, not pleasant and definitely not worth the money I was paying for it.
Agency Review
Rude and unprofessional. Wasn’t a registered landlord and took a very long time to give me my deposit back. One time my direct debit failed and I hadn’t realised, she text both my flatmates before me threatening about how she was going to kick me out (I think it was late by a day, and only because I hadn’t realised it didn’t go through), instead of texting me? All in all truly awful!

Property Review
The rooms are all of a decent size, came fully furnished - that’s about where the positives end though. The flat had a MASSIVE mouse problem, literal holes in the floor in the boiler cupboard which the landlord/agency refused to get filled even though we contacted them about the mouse problem multiple times. Ended up having to go above the agencies head and contact the landlord directly to get repairs done as the agency just ignored our emails. Things were broken for months before things got fixed - even then think we moved out with stuff still broken. Also the previous tenants allegedly had issues with Scottish Power - leaving a £300 bill behind, which then fell into my name when I took over the flat. Despite telling the agency about this multiple times they never did anything to resolve this. Tried to resolve through Scottish power but they couldn’t, ended up going straight to the landlord who held off for a few months but finally got it sorted for us.
Agency Review
Agency provided absolutely no help though and ignored so many emails and calls.
Landlord Review
The man who owned the flat son managed the agency so whilst it was the “agency” we were in contact with, not sure how much of this the dad landlord actually dealt with. As said above agency was pretty useless so went over his head to the landlord.

Flat 1, 12 Canning St Ln
EH3 8ER
Edinburgh
Property Review
Worst tenant experience of my life. Broken underfloor heating lead to massive energy bills which the property manager and landlord left me to deal with on my own in the middle of winter. Flat was extremely cold because we couldn't turn electricity on, whilst still getting charged unheard of money amounts and no action was taken.
Agency Review
Absolutely useless, should be ashamed of themselves for how they handled the situation, stay far away - would not recommend at all.
Landlord Review
Absolutely no compassion or care for her tenants, stay far away.

Flat 15, 5 Canal Walk
EH3 9RD
Edinburgh
Property Review
The offering in Canal Walk ranges from studios of up to 4-bedroom flats with ensuite bathrooms, thus allowing for flexibility. Quite central area and rent relatively higher than e.g. room solutions, but worth it considering the service/maintenance you get back, and how modern the flats are.
Agency Review
Lochrin Quay staff is always available to help in office/online with e.g. mis-delivered online orders and/or other issues. Good communication, prompt replies when needed. Additional services available via Lochrin Quay app/website.
Landlord Review
Relatively easy and convenient process to set up payments, etc. and never had a problem so far with payment schedule. Never heard from them so far which I assume is a good thing.

Property Review
Flat is modern, well spaced for four people (all with en suite, individual bathrooms - which is great!) and located in a centric area but away from the crowd. Very well priced for its quality and the price did not increase over the 2 years of rent which is much appreciated.
Agency Review
The agency allowed for a smooth renting process and was responsive to our questions and needs. Never had an issue with them.

105/7 Grove Street

Edinburgh
Property Review
The property is well kept and it has a nice courtyard. The flat doesn't face the street and it's very calm. You can also pay for a parking spot. The flat is not big, but enough for 2 people. Furniture is new and the kitchen very modern. Cons: you will need to buy your own cutlery as the one included in the flat is not enough. It's not easy for deliveries to arrive and the intercom doesn't work which is very annoying every time.
Agency Review
The agency provided a good service. They were efficient but it required a bit of time to fulfil all the paperwork. Overall a good experience.
Landlord Review
Never spoken to them.

23/2 Watson Crescent
EH11 1EZ
Edinburgh
Property Review
Very cosy flat - big enough for one person or a couple, renovated recently, and with high ceilings. Cons: not too much light gets in as it is in the ground floor. Also, during winter it gets quite cold so the heater has to be constantly on high heat, which results on the shower pressure being low.
Agency Review
Quite responsive, but they were not very proactive when I had mice in the flat and didn't help resolve the rodent situation.
Landlord Review
They are nice, they pay for almost all repairs.

Flat 45, 3 Canal Walk

Modern flat in great location, but for the price facilities are a bit rundown. Paint is unfinished and the rooftops have been under construction for ages… The building is also full of students, so common spaces are noisy and dirty a lot of the times.

Really nice and helpful letting agent, Karolina is great!

Never met them but no complaints, I always paid rent on time so never heard from them or had any issues.

Great flat for a great price! However, big inconvenience due to the lack of being able to get a council parking permit. Very energy efficient flat though, good insulation. Very modern flat, we are happy with it.

Flat was nice although quite aged - the walls were a bit damaged, but was functionally very good. Price was reasonable as well! We never got an increase in rent for over 3 years.
Agency Review
Good communication and helped us get things sorted whenever we had any issues.
Landlord Review
He got us a new fridge when it broke down very quickly which was nice! However, they didn’t let us redecorate even though the flat was a bit old and we would have been keen to repaint the walls.

Property Review
It was a good place to live in. Potentially a bit too small and hence why I moved out. Very nice location in Gorgie, although it can get very noisy with the Hearts stadium close-by on match days.
Agency Review
Spoke to the agency directly a few times to get radiators fixed and they immediately sent out someone to fix them. They also let us redecorate the place which was quite nice!

Never had an issue with them, they always sorted issues quickly.

Property Review
Very cozy loft with a great location in the heart of Bruntsfield. I have been living with my partner here for two years and we enjoy it - thanks to the two-floor layout we were able to fit two desks comfortably and work together from home. Considering its size, it has plenty wardrobe space and the high ceilings make it feel very spacious. The flat, however, has serious dampness issues. It is always above 70% humidity, and it has had big mould issues in the bathroom. The core issue is that all windows are locked and can't be opened. Because of this, the air gets very wet. This has led to our personal belongings (including clothes hanging in the corridor closets) to get moulded. The kitchen get super hot and wet when cooking as well, it definitely needs more than the tiny extractor over the sink. The property has no gas, and it is very very inefficient and utility bills are incredibly high (we have been paying £250/mo and just got quoted £500+/mo for the next year) - which is insane considering this is a one bedroom studio.
Agency Review
In the beginning the agency was super responsive and helpful - getting access to the flat was seamless and the first couple of repairs were quick and smooth. With time, however, they have struggled to keep up with our mould issues - considering how big of a health risk these mean, we have felt that they haven't truly been as helpful and diligent as they should have. We are talking of conversations around mould issues of over a year, and still haven't been able to ensure the flat's safety, schedule a fix, and make the landlord take the issue seriously.
Landlord Review
Careless and cheap. Never refunded us for our belongings damaged by mould. We asked for window repairs and instead bought a cheap dehumidifier machine. Increased our rent after a year of tenancy without doing basic up-keeping. It's a pity because the flat has so much potential and it's such a great location - but unless you are comfortable living on a damp and smelly flat, and have your personal belongings damaged, would not recommend!
