Meat Market FAQs
How much will my rent be?
Monthly rent for a one bedroom flat will be £549.47 a month. If you are renting a two bedroom flat your rent will be £704.46 a month. These both include a service charge of £54.46.
Rent is charged from the 1st of the month and payment is due in advance by the 1st of the month. Our preferred method of payment is Direct Debit and this should be set up at the tenancy start date.
Each year we will review to apply an appropriate rent increase from 1 April and will take into consideration the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Rent cannot be increased more than once in any 12 month period and we must give you at least three months' notice in writing.
Do I need a deposit?
A deposit equivalent to one month’s rent will be required prior to taking entry. This is a security deposit and will be retained to meet the costs of any damage caused to the property by the tenant or for any unpaid rent after the property has been vacated.
At the end of the tenancy, Letting Protection Scotland will repay the deposit unless there is a dispute between the tenant and the landlord.
In the case of a joint tenancy, a lead tenant has to be nominated and only the lead tenant can be attached to the deposit.
How do I apply and how will homes be allocated?
You can register your interest by emailing email@example.com . We have started to email applications to the first customers.
Once we have received and reviewed your completed application, we will pre-allocate a property to you based on the criteria. See if you are eligible to rent a Mid Market Rent home.
Closer to the handover date, we will pass your applications to our agent, to carry out reference checks.
Once the references are verified and the application is accepted by our housing team, we can make a formal offer for properties.

In principle the following criteria will apply:

- Two bedroom apartments fits up to three people. For example couple and one child, a single person and one child or two single people
- A two bedroom apartment can also fit up to four people if there is a couple plus one or two children, or a single person with one or two children

What is Mid Market Rent?
Mid Market Rent (or MMR) is an initiative from the Scottish Government to provide quality, affordable homes for low to moderate income households. MMR customers are typically those who would not qualify for social housing but cannot afford to pay market rent or buy a property.
Am I eligible for an Mid Market Rent home?
In most cases, to rent a home you need to be:
- Aged 18 years and above
- Have a gross annual income within the minimum and maximum threshold: currently £21,000 to £40,000 in Glasgow & Dundee and £22,000 to £45,000 in Edinburgh (these amounts are subject to change).
Priority is given to:
- First time buyers
- Those living in private rented sector
- Those living with family, friends or relatives
- Those lacking security of tenure in their current home
- Owners of properties where a change of circumstances (for example health, or relationship breakdown) is forcing or requiring a move
- Those on waiting lists for council or housing association homes
What Council Tax band are the apartments classed as?
All one bedroom apartments are classed as Council Tax band B and all two bedroom apartments are classed as Council Tax band C.
What type of tenancy will I have?
You will be given a Private Residential Tenancy Agreement (PRT).
As a landlord, we are duty bound to provide the written terms of the PRT under section 10 of the Private Housing (Tenancies)(Scotland) Act 2016.
Unlike other tenancies, the PRT is an open ended agreement which means there is no fixed length or a fixed end date. This agreement provides better security for the tenant and removes the ability for a landlord to evict at the tenancy end date.
Who is responsible for maintenance of the property?
We are responsible for the maintenance of the property. As a landlord, we must carry out pre-tenancy checks to identify the work required.
As a landlord, we also have a duty to repair and maintain the property from the start date of the tenancy and throughout the tenancy.
We are also responsible for the repair or replacement of any of the items that are supplied with the property such as white goods and floor coverings.
Damage caused by the tenant, anyone living with the tenant, a guest, or negligence will be the tenant's responsibility.
Will I be able to buy my home?
No, you will not be able to buy your home.
How will parking be allocated on site?
We don't yet know the number of available parking spaces, but customers will be issued parking permits.
Can I decorate my home?
When allocated a new build home, permission to decorate would not be granted within the first 12 months. The property must remain untouched to allow the property to settle and the builder to complete their 12 month defect liability inspection.
Can I keep a pet?
You must apply for permission to keep a pet.
What will my address be?
Your address could range between the below:
- 71 to 91 Belgrove Street
- 210 to 270 Duke Street
- 1 to 2 Market Street
