Property Properly Factored Since 1985

Factotum are experienced letting agents for short term, long term, holiday and festival lets. Whether you want to let your property for a week or a year, we have a growing number of prospective tenants waiting to move in.

Factotum TaxiA family business, Factotum have been managing an extensive range of Edinburgh properties since 1985. From traditional townhouses to mews houses, studio apartments and new developments, Factotum can accommodate individuals, private groups, corporate and student lets.

While residential letting is the core of our business, we also have years of experience of property factoring, main contracting, maintenance and upgrades through our network of trusted sub contractors and trade suppliers.

By offering a comprehensive full management package, Factotum can handle every aspect of letting. We pride ourselves in understanding the specific requirements of our individual landlords and tenants, and tailor our services accordingly.


No Sole Agency Agreements

Unlike other letting agents, Factotum do not insist on sole agency agreements. We believe that the proof is in the pudding, and by not committing to a sole agency agreement we can work hard to secure lets for our landlords while still giving them the flexibility to arrange private lets or advertise through additional agents.

Flexibility to let Short Term, Long Term or Festival

There are benefits to renting your property short or long term. Factotum’s flexible approach allows you to rent when it suits you. Not all letting agents offer short term or festival lets. By offering a range of options, we allow you to maximise your property’s income by augmenting long term lets with short term and festival lets.



Dedicated Property Manager

We have a team of experienced and dedicated property managers who each manage a portfolio, so you deal with the same people who know you and are familiar with your property.


Our Website

In addition to each property we manage being showcased on our website, Factotum’s site has
a unique Account facility that allows landlords to log in and see everything that Factotum are arranging for their property. This includes a full history of events as they occur in real time, income statements and any maintenance that has taken place. Landlords can edit their property’s online profile and update the availability calendar to make sure the latest information is displayed to potential tenants.

From dealing with the burden of the latest regulations and complexity of compliance, to arranging cleaners, maintenance or upgrades – Factotum can handle everything.
