Mid-market rent

On this page

Sanctuary Scotland has mid-market rent (MMR) properties in Glasgow, North Lanarkshire and Aberdeen. These properties will only be allocated to applicants who meet our eligibility criteria.

What is mid-market rent?

Mid-market rent is a form of affordable housing. Tenants generally pay a lower rent than their area's market rent level, but more than local social housing tenants. Starting rents for new mid-market rent homes are often similar to the Local Housing Allowance. Mid-market rent might be suitable for people on incomes that are not quite enough to afford home ownership, or private sector rents.

The homes offer high quality, secure and accessible living that is sustainable, energy efficient and easily maintained. Every double bedroom will be fitted with a full-sized wardrobe including hanging rail and shelving. Furnishings such as blinds, floor covering, cooker oven, washer, fridge-freezer and kitchen units will be installed in all properties. Some properties may also have a washer-dryer.
