Homes For Rent On Kincardine Estate
The estate is responsible for some 70 homes in and around Kincardine O'Neil. Whilst some of these are occupied by Estate Staff and Farm Tenants the majority are leased as Residential Properties.
Our rental policy seeks to support the local community as a priority. If all our houses were rented at the open market rent many local families would not be able to afford to live in Kincardine O’Neil. We therefore set rents, often at much lower levels, to support local needs. We do have some properties, however, that are rented at normal open-market rates.

We prefer long-term tenants and those who can contribute to the well-being of a small rural community. Those who are willing to become involved in the local activities are especially welcome.
We have a wide variety of properties for rent, ranging from outlying farm cottages constructed in the first half of the 19th Century, through to newly built homes constructed as recently as 1999.
Over the years we have constantly striven to improve the quality of our rented properties. Government policies between 1918 and 1982, were so negative to the private rented sector that a legacy of neglect has had to be remedied. In the last 20 years we have made great progress and we hope you will be impressed!
We have a dedicated and skilled Estate Maintenance Team who will ensure that any problem with the property is dealt with promptly and efficiently.
Kincardine Estate is an Accredited Landlord under the national scheme Landlord Accreditation Scotland. It is also a Registered Landlord.
