About Us

About Harbour Lettings

We offer high quality homes at affordable prices in Leith and north Edinburgh.

Harbour Lettings was created in 2010 to address Edinburgh’s affordable housing shortage. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Harbour Homes, we have greater flexibility in funding, leasing and development than Harbour Homes’ charitable status would otherwise allow. This means we can build more homes faster so that people can live in high-quality, affordable homes in areas they want to live.

With over 500 properties for mid market rent, plus a number of properties managed for private clients, we have strong industry knowledge of both the housing and private rental sectors. Want to know more? Speak to our team!
