Use our years of experience in the Edinburgh and Lothians market to help you locate your ideal home, at a price you can afford. With our portfolio of available properties and our friendly service you can expect first-class guidance in finding a place to live that suits your requirements.


All tenants must provide references. We require ID, Employers reference and Previous Landlords reference. In the case of students we also require proof of acceptance of study from the relevant institution. Students will be required to provide us with a referenced guarantor in case of rental default.


Managing your money

We require 1.5 times the monthly rent as a deposit. By law your deposit will be held by a government approved organisation. Albany uses the services of Safe Deposit Scotland for this purpose. They will adjudicate should there be any disputes regarding deposit returns at the end of the lease.
