1.4 Mid-market renting from a housing association or local authority

Many housing associations, local authorities and private developers provide mid-market rent properties which are aimed at assisting people on low and modest incomes, to access affordable rented accommodation across Scotland. To ensure that mid-market rent levels remain affordable, landlords receiving Scottish Government support are not permitted to set rent levels above the mid-point of local private sector rent levels.

If you are interested in renting a mid-market rent home, in the first instance you should contact the relevant local authority or the provider organisation and complete the necessary application form.
