    Why choose 1LET?

    We work with a number of advertising partners in order to achieve maximum exposure for our clients' properties. We are also regulated by the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and we are accredited members of Landlord Accreditation Scotland (LAS).

    In the lettings industry it is not unusual for individual property managers to manage 200 - 300 properties. At 1LET we try to keep the number to less than 100. Landlords know that their property manager is familiar with their property, knows the current tenants and is able to provide fully informed support and advice.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      1LET have been our letting agents for our Edinburgh flat for four years. We are very happy with the service that they provide and could not wish for better. The staff are conscientious, thorough and professional. Our flat is in good hands and we recommend 1LET as a letting agency without reservation. - Andrew Bruce
    • Landlord Testimonial

      We have been using 1Let for just over a year now and are completely satisfied with their service. Ken always responds to our emails within a few hours and nothing seems to faze himWe live in Spain, so it is especially important that we have an agent we can rely on and Ken and his team at 1Let tick all the boxes. We would not hesitate to recommend 1Let to any landlord looking for a friendly, efficient agent. - Marilyn & Jim
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Excellent, efficient and very personal service from 1Let. Very professional compared to a lot of other letting companies we have dealt with in the past. Would not hesitate to recommend them! - Mrs Marshall
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Recently, I had a tenant leaving, work to be undertaken at the flat and a new tenant to be secured. Throughout this transition, Alan was consistently positive in his approach, timely in his execution and patient dealing with various challenges along the way. It appeared to me that Alan was 100% committed to providing the best service to me, as if I were his only client, when of course, I was not. I particularly appreciated Alan's positive solutions orientated approach that helped ensure all the moving parts kept moving forward, even as various challenges threatened to derail things.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      I chose 1LET to be my property management agency around 2016, after some horrific and costly experiences with a number of other 'renown' agencies in Edinburgh (and Scotland in general). My choice was influenced mainly by the honesty and boldness of Ewan (Foreman) when discussing with him the state of my property due to the absolute incompetence of previous agencies. He did not try to please my ears or comfort my insecurities, but rather explained to me the difficulties ahead, the bad news and the good news to eventuate. Everything he said was spot on.Going through an initial period of no profit while trying to recover a descent state of the property, and gracefully end some very low quality tenancies, it is the first time (since I stopped managing the property myself) that letting became again profitable. It is also the first time (since I started using property management services -- and I went through many of the big names in Edinburgh), that I don't have to worry for every little thing, chase contractors, supervise the actions of the agents, etc.Ken (Bell) initially and later Beata (Lozyniak) have been absolutely committed, responsible, trustworthy, and fully attentive to every single issue. And also the other two people that I have occasionally been in contact with, Rachelle (Aitchison), and Jane (Aitken), have been super helpful and making my life as easy as possible.Overall, I can only say "THEY are THE professionals in the City". - M. Sifalakis

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Staff members always professional and friendly. Quick to answer and address issues. I would highly recommend 1LET to my friends. - Kent
    • Landlord Testimonial

      I chose 1Let as a leasing agent based on the excellent reviews on the internet. I have not been disappointed. Ken and the team made the process of leasing my property and dealing with the paperwork quick and easy. The photos and marketing of the property were very good. Communication between the tenants, 1Let and the landlord is excellent and issues are dealt with quickly and efficiently. Any maintenance issues at the property are sorted quickly and at a reasonable cost to the landlord. If you are looking for an agent to lease your property then I have no hesitation in recommending 1Let. - A & G-landlord

    • Tenant Testimonial

      We have had a great experience so far with 1Let, who have been very professional and communicative in their dealings with us. While other letting agencies seem to be working solely for the landlord and on maximising their income, 1Let seem to balance their obligations to the landlords and the tenants very well. Overall, they are a very professional companies, with dedicated employees. We also loved our moving-in gift! - Ciarán McFadden
