Define your buy-to-let budget 

It is important to consider all the potential costs involved in purchasing a buy-to-let property, from legal fees to property tax. If a mortgage is required, we recommend that you chat to a mortgage advisor, such as ESPC Mortgages to identify how much you can afford to borrow and obtain an agreement in principle. 

Identify your target tenant 

Identifying the best area to purchase a buy-to-let property can be tricky. However, with our access to in-depth ESPC data and local marketing knowledge, we can help you decide which type of tenant you would like to attract and where the best areas are for them. 

Search for your buy-to-let property

This is where ESPC can help. ESPC advertises properties 72 hours before other property portals and you can sign up to My ESPC to get property alerts for your specified areas direct to your inbox. This means you can get ahead of the game when a property that meets your requirements comes to the market. 

Choose a buy-to-let property

When choosing a property, take a detailed look at the Home Report before going to view the property to ensure you are fully aware of the condition of the property. The Home Report will highlight things such as the age of the boiler, the condition of the exterior and windows and any immediate work which may be required. This will allow you to budget for the future. 

Buy a property

An ESPC solicitor estate agent will be able to help you with every step of buying your property. They have in-depth market knowledge and data and will help advise you about the right offer to make on a property. They will also be able to take you through the full legal process of buying a home. 

Rental Property Valuations

As highly experienced Edinburgh Letting agents, we can provide you with an accurate estimate of the rental yield of your property. Simply fill in the form on our Rental Property Valuation page and find out the rental value of your buy-to-let property.

Preparing your property to rent

You've purchased your property - hooray! The next step is to prepare it for rental. You should consider how to maximise rent and your legal requirements. 

If you're asking yourself "Is a buy-to-let worth it?", you can find out how much you could earn by using our simple buy-to-let rental yield calculator


If your property requires renovating, we can work with you and project manage any required refurbishments. We arrange all required safety checks to ensure your property meets current rental legislation.
