I'm in the process of biting a several-year-old bullet and finally buying.

Narrowed it down to a couple of flats, and I'm now wanting to check how many of the other flats in the buildings are rental properties, and how many are owner-occupiers.

Anyone know of an online resource that might furnish useful info?

Or indeed an offline one? Council department etc?

go and knock on a few doors. I did this when I was buying - gives you a great insight into the culkture of the place. pitbulls and fagsmoke can;t be found on any register...

There is always death and taxes; however, death doesn't get worse every year.....

How the flipping 'eck did we get to 2014 without flying cars and laser guns?

You can see whether there is a registered landlord for a property on the Scottish Landlord Registration site.

As for finding out whether any of those properties is an HMO (house in multiple occupation), I would guess that you would have to contact the city council and ask.

Having just been watching Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes, I have a delightful image of you tottering round the doors in a fake set of grey whiskers and a battered bowler hat, pretending to be selling clothes pegs.

Sounds a decent idea though. What was you opening gambit when they answered the door?
