COVID-19 - how it affects renting

2 students looking for flat mate/pal in Newington!

Ad ref# 14876896

Hello,
We are two 23 year old medical students (Katie and Aislinn) who will start our final year of uni after the summer. We are from Glasgow and Belfast and have been living in Edinburgh for 5 years.

The situation:

Aislinn’s current flat mates, who she’s lived with since 1st year, are graduating and moving out of their lovely 3-bed flat in Newington. Katie is planning to move in with her after the summer but we need a third flat mate/pal to fill the last spot.
Given the Coronavirus crisis the previous flat mates are moving out earlier than expected so the room would be free for you by the end of the month.

Location:

The flat is located above 56 North restaurant and is directly opposite University of Edinburgh George square campus! It is only a 15 minute walk from Princes Street and less than a minute to the library! Tesco, post office, cafes, pubs etc all only a few mins walk away on Nicolson street and bus stops round the corner, including airlink direct to Edinburgh airport. The bus stop for the 41 to King’s buildings is right outside the door (or a 30 min walk). If you frequent hospitals as often as we do you are bang in the middle of the Western and Royal with regular buses. Honestly could not get a better location.

The Flat:

The flat itself in on the 1st floor; it has 3 double bedrooms, a large bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and living room (with comfy corner sofa). Landlord and Letting agent are very fair and we haven’t experienced any issue with them. Flat stays nice and warm and is HMO compliant. We have: washing machine; bath+shower and extra storage in the hall.
Sorry our photography skills aren't great, just took these pictures quickly on my phone but happy to oragnise viewings!

Bills:

It’s £467 pcm plus £24 bills (including wifi) and £485 deposit for the letting agent. No council tax as we are both students. If you are a young professional and are willing to pay all the council tax (-25% I believe for us being students) then this suits us grand and in fact may well be cheaper than the rents for similar properties!

Your Room:

It is a good size double room with a wardrobe, desk and chest of drawers. There’s also two big cupboards in the hall for extra storage if needed.
Parking:
There is no parking directly on site but there is free parking nearby (which you don’t even need a permit for!)

Your future flatmates:

Thankyou if you’ve read down this far! Basically, we are two easy-going, friendly girls looking for a likeminded flatmate/pal.
We’d love to hear back as soon as possible. We are also looking for someone to fill the room Katie will be moving in to over summer. But ideally we would like someone as a long term flat mate for the third room until the end of May 2021.
We know with the coronavirus pandemic people may be unsure of their plans but please get in touch if you think you would be interested, even if plans aren’t 100%!

Stay safe,
Katie and Aislinn xx
