I have had the best experience as a tenant with Rettie & Co. The flat was fantastic and the staff were amazing! I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Stephanie Lewis, Tenant
"I recently bought a two bedroom flat in the city centre which required to be refurbished throughout. Rettie & Co. arranged for their contractors to estimate for the works to be carried out and upon my approval, refurbished the flat to a very high standard. Within a short period, Rettie & Co. had marketed the flat for let and found tenants. Excellent service."
Peter Young, Landlord
Rettie & Co. have been a fantastic agent for securing me with a great tenant and walking me through the process of renting out my property in Edinburgh. With a move overseas to manage, they have provided a 5 star service which has been hugely appreciated. Keep up the professional and personal service.
Alice Harbison, Landlord
My partner and I were looking for an estate agency to manage our property while living abroad. Ros Mills and the team at Rettie & Co. came highly recommended and have been amazing. They have managed everything down to the smallest detail, removing the stress of becoming landlords. We cannot express how much this has helped as moving countries is pretty stressful all on its own.
Annora Bennett, Landlord
Can't fault the Rettie service - from the start they were very helpful especially when dealing with them from the other side of the world! Also during our tenancy whenever there was an issue it was resolved. Thank you to Dawn and the rest of the Team at Rettie & Co. for a job well done!

Our Fully Managed service will cover all your student letting needs. We will advertise your property to students, vet tenants and then manage their requirements for the duration of their tenancy.
We operate a 24-hour emergency helpline for students, so that emergencies will be responded to immediately, without any need for the landlord to be involved.
Our team can advise you whether your property is suitable for the student letting market, let you know how to maximise your returns and answer any questions you might have.
We provide effective marketing for student rental properties. This includes a student property alert service that will forward details of your property to a selection of carefully vetted potential tenants.
LEGISLATION, SAFETY & COMPLIANCE
We can work with you to ensure that your property is compliant with all current health and safety requirements. If needed we can also provide insurance, financing and taxation advice.
If you are thinking of letting a property to students, we'll be happy to give you a free appraisal of its potential letting value. We can also provide projections of potential 12-month rental levels to help you plan.
