I just moved in a property let my Umega. The letting process was transparent. The letting negotiators that I've encountered were super friendly and helpful. I've asked plenty of questions in person, by phone and email, and they all got well answered. The property was so clean the day I moved in. A lovely experience to rent with them!read more

I have been super impressed with all the team at Umega. From asking for a free property evaluation to having tenants move in, they have been super efficient, friendly, professional and helpful. The process itself is quite involved (because of all the legal requirements etc) and could seem a bit overwhelming but the Umega team have made everything go smoothly. It's clear that they are strict when taking on new staff members that everyone is very service-minded. It's been a pleasure to work with all the team. Thank you!read more

Really great customer service, quick email replies and always there to help. As a student letting a flat sometimes I found that you weren't treated as an adult, but Umega made me feel like a welcome and valued tenant. Emily, Amy and Emma where a great help through the whole process.read more

Could not have had a more positive experience with Umega and Kim Craven so far. The modern way of completing things online is excellent and Kim has been very helpful at both the first and then arranging a second viewing of the property I have just moved into. Both professional and friendly, Kim genuinely shared my excitement for my new home.read more

Umega are a superstar letting agent! Mohammad, Kim and Emily were so professional, polite and friendly when helping me get tenants for my property. They thought of everything, from the quality of photos to the thoughtful write up about the property - It was no wonder there was such high interest in the property. They guided me through the necessary legal procedures and before I knew it, there were happy tenants with a new home! So glad I chose them and would highly recommend to others! Thanks, Umega!read more

Kim Craven was a right mix of professionalism and friendliness. Very pleasant and quick in responding to all the queries. The online application process was quick and hassle free. The house is very well maintained and beautiful. All the necessary information about the house is sent along with rental agreement.

As someone also relocating from a different country with limited time for viewing, the entire process from having a glance in the Quartermile window, being invited inside to see if any help could be provided, viewing the properties and the subsequent lease, agreement signing etc. the help provided by Eden and Rachel has been superb. The swiftness and ease of which everything has been carried out is a testament to them both and the company. Professional, courteous and amiable. Couldn't recommend enough and can't wait to pick up the keys and move in, in a few weeks time!- Dr Christopher Donnellread more

As people who had never let a property before we were rather nervous about this process - but Emily made it so much easier than we could have hoped for, and found us such a wonderful flat! She was kind, incredibly helpful and quick to reply to emails, very patiently answering all of our many many questions and talking us through every step. Could not recommend more - thank you so much!read more

As someone relocating from London to Edinburgh I cannot praise Umega Lettings for their professional and efficient letting process. A special mention to Kim Craven who showed me the property and by the end of day I had secured the lease. The whole referencing process was by far superior to any letting agent previously and the team made me feel most welcome when I popped into the office to pick up my keys on move in day. I have nothing but praise and the 5 stars are well deserved. Thanks Debbieread more

As a student moving to Edinburgh from the States, I entered into the process of looking for a flat with a short deadline and many questions. Kim Craven, and really the entire Umega team, did so much to make this process as swift and accessible as possible for me. Every interaction has been a delight, and I can truthfully say they went above and beyond to make me feel at ease, answer any questions I might have in a timely fashion, and help me find the right home. I feel very fortunate to have worked with Kim, and it's largely due to her help that I accomplished my goal of finding a great flat, and can look forward to a painless move. I'm so happy to be part of the Umega family.read more

We are renting for the first time after selling our property. After finding a property through Umega which suited our requirements. When we went to view the property, we were met by Eden Ritchie who was very helpful and friendly in answering our questions including those by our 10 year old daughter.

I am a new tenant with Umega, but so far everything has been totally painless. In particular (and I admit this is partially just a sign of how times have changed since I last went through the process...) I was able to complete everything between the viewing and collecting keys including the initial application, and signing the lease, online and through e-mail. That makes a big difference when you work full time! Kim and the team have been helpful, friendly, and efficient throughout the process, and I look forward to several happy years in my new flat.read more

Excellent customer service. Always professional and helpful in meeting customer needs. I contacted Umega on a Monday to arrange a viewing of a flat for my son. Viewed the next day and all formalities completed in 5 days to allow my son to move in on the following Monday. All accomplished within 6 days. Fast tracking at best. Our agent Kim was wonderful and always kept in contact by phone and email ensuring that deadlines were met. A special thanks to her.read more

Emily saved the day when it came to finding a 5 bed student flat. She was incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone, totally different experience to most letting agents I had been in contact with! We have had a rollercoaster ride trying to find a flat for next year but as soon as I spoke to Emily all my worries floated away!

As a student in Edinburgh trying to rent a flat, we aren’t always treated particularly pleasantly (read: mass viewings with around 50 students competing for a semi-decent flat) Umega has been brilliant! We mainly met and dealt with Scott who was always friendly and very helpful. He even smiled and laughed through our excited squeals for a blanket fort cupboard (a student necessity!). After a few technical/admin hiccups in the letting process, Umega remained very helpful and gracious. We cannot recommend Umega enough! 10/10read more

Umega is by far one of the best renting agencies ever!! We are still renting the property but sadly we have to leave soon for personal reasons. Ever since the process of the letting agreement to the sign of the contract and the keys all the way through our last days here we have been treated very well and like human beings. Not at all like other agencies where they just want you to pay and they don't really care if you have any issue in the property ir if you are ok with everything. Special thanks to Jonathan who has been the one always in touch with us and helping with anything we have needed. If we ever come back to Edinburgh I hope we can rent with you guys again. Please keep being best of the bests!!read more

Best letting agency throughout uni. So helpful, easy to talk to, replaced and fixed things when they needed it (including a lamp & mattress, fixed washing machine). Just down the road from us and always willing to help. We did a thorough clean of the flat ourselves and weren't deducted anything from the deposit unlike other agencies who deduct money for tiny stupid or impossible things. Would recommend!read more

Renting from Umega has been a pleasure. When you phone, you speak to employees who really want to help you.

I've been renting with Umega for around five years now and couldn't be happier! This was my first solo flat and the staff as a whole from the agency based to the outside contract workers, could not have been nicer or more helpful! They're always so pleasant and go above and beyond to quickly sort any issues that arise - I would throughly recommend Umega and when the day arises I need something larger than my lovely wee one bedroom (I say wee, it's massive and was the first place I've ever moved and didn't need to clean beforehand!) I'll hopefully continue with them to my next home! They really do make you feel you're in your home and not just renting a faceless flat! Definite full five stars and if there was a ten option, I'd be giving it!read more

They explained every step in good details. Post rent service also seems to be good so far.read more
