The housing charity, which specialises in providing mid-market rental homes, has let the first two properties at its Dolphinstone development with a further 10 to follow later this year.

But LAR said it cannot keep up with demand and now has over 130 people on its waiting list for East Lothian.

Chief executive Ann Leslie said: “We now have seven developments either completed or under construction in the county and demand for our homes is growing. There is no doubt that there is a real need for mid market rental homes in the area and we are keen to work with developers and the Council in trying to help address this issue.”

LAR has handed over the keys to its first tenants at Dolphinstone, for the two three bed properties. The remaining six one-bed and four two-bed homes will be ready for tenants during September.
