We advise on tenants’ amenity wish-lists (including shared lounges, gyms, co-working areas, shared transport) and will advice on the best use of space to maximise rental income and to appeal to tenants’ rapidly changing lifestyle needs. We’ll help design your site to maximise rent and tenant retention.

Umega is a brand that Edinburgh tenants trust and we’ve streamlined the marketing process via; out of hours viewing booking, virtual tours, online tenant referencing and online lease signing ensuring a quick turnaround and keeping any voids to a minimum. We have a deep knowledge of Edinburgh’s tenants so we can be targeted with our tenant acquisition strategy.
