Manor Estates Associates Limited (MEAL) is a subsidiary of Manor Estates Housing Association.

Mid Market Rent

Mid Market Rent (MMR) housing is designed to assist those households who are unlikely to have sufficient priority to enable them to access social rented housing, but whose income is at a level that means they cannot afford to access private rented accommodation or buy a property.

On behalf of Manor Estates Housing Association, MEAL manages a number of MMR properties in the Little France area of Edinburgh. The location offers easy access to Cameron Toll and Fort Kinnaird shopping centres and Edinburgh’s Royal Infirmary. There are also excellent bus links to the city centre.

Rents for these properties are in the region of £580 per month (from April 2017).  Properties are part-furnished with carpets and white goods (cooker, washer -dryer) Applications for MMR housing will be accepted from applicants:

  • Who are aged at least 18.
  • Whose annual income does not exceed £28,000 (single person) or £39,067 (couple).

The third phase of the development is due for completion in May/June 2017.  If you are interested in applying, please contact the office or download the application form here.
