It’s 1 bed flat week for the Penicuik Property Blog

The buy to let opportunities in the Penicuik Property Blog this week are all 1 bed flats and they come from right across the spectrum!

This 1 bed has recently come on the market with Stuart & Stuart. 

It is a fairly basic 1 bed flat at 4 Andrew Court in Penicuik, just off the Queensway, although it does have gas central heating and double glazing.  The description and pictures do not make it clear whether the bathroom has a shower or not so it would be worth checking this.  Also, the bathroom picture does not have a full shot of the WC so I am not able to see whether it has the tell tale sign of being repossession – tape across the WC seat!  Again, worth checking this out.  Finally, the external picture shows that there is a defective communal down pipe and it is worth considering the difficulties landlords sometimes have in getting even simple communal repairs done.

The property is on the market for offers over £70,000 so let’s assume it goes for £75,000.  It will rent for £500 – £525 which gives a yield of 8% – 8.4%.

If you want some advice on this property, another property you have in mind or anything else property related, come and see us in our office (6 Bank Street, Penicuik) or email either of us (;

  1. Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
