Edinburgh is seeing a boom in investors building their buy to let portfolios in Edinburgh. A week doesn’t seem to pass without something in the press relating to the city outperforming most of the country and news of investors choosing Edinburgh above alternative UK buy to let hot spots.

We’ve been fine tuning our investment sourcing offering over the past couple of years to provide the best possible service for buy to let investors in Edinburgh. Here’s a quick introduction on how we can help you secure your 1st or 21st buy to let property in Edinburgh.

1. On first enquiry we’ll discuss your options, looking at your budget, timescales and long-term strategy and we’ll share examples of investment properties we have secured for our investors so that we can agree a way forward for you. Following this, if you have not already done so, we’ll introduce you to a solicitor, mortgage advisor (if lending is required) and an accountant so you that you’re ready to offer when the right property comes along.

2. The Umega investment sourcing team is ‘out there’ every day looking for the best possible buy to let properties in Edinburgh. We search the open market and work with off market contacts to package up good buy to let options to be circulated around our investor mailing list. Once you’re set up with us you’ll be added to this list and will have the opportunity to express interest and offer for properties we share with you.

3. Once you’ve made an offer for one of our recommended or secured properties we’ll work with your solicitor to make a formal offer and, once accepted, we’ll help organise any surveys associated with the offer. We’ll then keep things moving during the due diligence process until the purchase goes through.

4. Once the purchase completes we’ll inspect the property to make sure everything is as it should be before passing it onto either; our project management team to take care of refurbishments and upgrades, or straight to our lettings team to get to work finding you a great tenant quickly.
