Re: Students and tourists and spying landlords
If they start renting the flat to "noisy, drug taking" students, they'll
1. Have to register as landlords.
2. Need a a HMO certificate.
Edinburgh's standard HMO certificate conditions require them to prevent and deal with any anti-social behaviour from their tenants and provide all neighbours with their daytime and emergency phone numbers. Given the good will they've already earned from the neighbours, I'd expect them to start receiving a few 3am phone calls.
