Steven Scobie, Edinburgh

2 ★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
Landlord rating
Mr Scobie was often unreliable, however did get some issues sorted.
When we moved into the flat there were a number of issues. We did not get a response from Mr Scobie for many weeks, at which point Mr Scobie replaced some appliances (the toadter had been shooting sparks out of it, and the microwave produced sparks). Some issues remained, such as a wardrobe door that fell of onto one of the tenants, so we contacted the council about reviewing the HMO licence, at which point Mr Scobie sent a handyman to fix some of the issues.
Approaching the end of our residency, Mr Scobie advertised the property despite us having made no formal mention of ending the tenancy, and signed new tenants on before we had done said we were leaving.
A summary of Mr Scobie's attitude would be a comment he made when a painter came around to quote the painting of the flat. When discussing the timescale of such a project, Mr Scobie commented that "it doesn't have to be a good job, it's only a student flat". This highlights the attitude we felt for a lot of our tenancy.
Mr Scobie's attitude resulted in one tenant feeling uncomfortable communicating with or being in the property at the same time as him.

7 Abbey Court, St Andrews, St Andrews

7 ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
Property rating
The property was in a habitable condition. It was furnished, albeit with broken furniture, but provided shelter for tenants.
The flat has four bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have double beds and a small amount of additional space. One bedroom has a single bed, and a very small amount of additional space. In one of the double rooms the bed has a large slump in the middle. In another there is a damp problem and a strong draft. In the single room there is a serious damp/mould issue. The bed also had very weak slats which regularly collapsed if the bed was sat on.
The property has a bathroom and a WC. Both are in a functional condition.
The living room - kitchen is of a nice size. One sofa has a collapsed arm. The kitchen is in a functional state. The oven has loose glass in the window, and no markings to indicate function. The sink regularly blocks. The curtains had mould-like stains on them.

4 ★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆
Area rating
The neighbourhood is a mixture of locals and students. There was rarely noise issue from the majority of the residents. Although lacking aesthetic charm, Abbey Court was safe.
At the start of the tenancy there were regular police visits to the area. These reduced half way through the tenancy.
There is a cat called Artemis that sits on the walkway. He is quite friendly once you earn his trust.
