Private Rented Housing

This page provides information for Tenants of privately rented accommodation. The local privately rented sector is buoyant, particularly in the larger settlements around West Lothian, but there are also opportunities in most of the smaller towns and villages.

Letting agencies are based throughout West Lothian and advertise extensively in the local press with properties across the whole county. We can give advice if you're renting a property in West Lothian and keep you up to date with changing legislation so you understand your rights and responsibilities. If you require any further information or can't find the answer to your query please contact us.
