Families and couples

The demand for private rented accommodation is high within the city. Please take this into consideration when choosing to bring your spouse/ family with you.

If you are coming to Edinburgh with your family it is advisable to come on your own first so you can secure suitable accommodation before they arrive. This will allow the time needed to find the right area and property to meet your family’s needs.

Please ensure that you budget for council tax should your spouse/partner be liable to pay for this. Further information can be found on the Edinburgh Council website

Schools and nurseries

If you have school-age children, you can find information on local schools and nurseries on the Edinburgh City Council website.
