Link Housing – through it’s Link2Let service - is a leading provider of Mid-Market Rent properties throughout Central Scotland, offering people on low to moderate incomes the chance to rent a high quality, well maintained private property at an affordable monthly rent.

What is Mid-Market Rent (MMR)
MMR is an increasingly popular housing option for working people on low to moderate incomes in Scotland. It is designed to help people who are unlikely to qualify for social rented housing but may struggle to buy their own property or afford to rent through a private landlord. Properties are let under the same terms as a private tenancy, but rent is guaranteed to be maintained lower than the average private rental value for similar sized properties in the local area.
What do I get with an MMR home
MMR homes come with neutral floor and window coverings, as well as quality brand white goods including washing and drying facilities, fridge-freezer and electric oven and hob. Any damages or faults can be reported directly to Link’s comprehensive repairs service, Link Property, who is committed to providing an efficient high-quality service to its customers. Our homes are designed and built to minimise energy use to help reduce your utility bills. They combine highly efficient heating and hot water systems, high thermal insulation and double glazing. All new homes are designed to an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) efficiency rating of B, ensuring whether rented or owned, homes will be warm, comfortable and economical to heat and run.
What terms do MMR tenants sign up to
Link2Let customers are given a Private Rented Tenancy (PRT), affording them the opportunity to rent flexibly with a responsible and ethical landlord while enjoying security of tenure. More information about the PRT can be found on the Scottish Government’s website.
