Complaints Procedure

SouthSide Complaints Procedure

At Southside Property Management we are committed to providing excellent service across all aspects of the business, which meets our clients’ reasonable expectations, but even so, sometimes issues can arise which give cause for complaint. If they do please let us know as soon as you can so we can make things right again.

Step 1:
Ryan Ivory ri@southsidemanagement.com

Leah Birch lb@southsidemanagement.com

Andrew Anderson aa@southsidemanagement.com

Craig Hannah ch@southsidemanagement.com

Katy Fitton kf@southsidemanagement.com

Anna Jones aj@southsidemanagement.com

Emma Winning ew@southsidemanagement.com

Angela McIntyre am@southsidemanagement.com

Dewald Nel dn@southsidemanagement.com

If you wish to complain about any aspect of our service, or that of a contractor instructed by us on your behalf, you can do so by contacting your Property Manager in writing, by email in the first instance, who will investigate and get back to you within 3 working days:

Tenants or Neighbour Complaints
Cat Dalrymple
20 Nicolson Street
Edinburgh
EH8 9DH
cd@southsidemanagement.com

Landlords/ 3rd Party Complaints
Emma Ewen
20 Nicolson Street
Edinburgh
EH8 9DH
ee@southsidemanagement.com


Step 2:
If you feel you have done all you can to resolve the issue with your Property Manager then the complaint will be investigated by another member of our team as follows within 15 working days:


Step 3:
If the response still does not provide the satisfaction you require, we would respectfully request that you provide us with written confirmation of the reasons you deem that the complaint has not been resolved. The complaint will then be reconsidered by Emma Ewen for tenant or neighbour complaints and Natasha Lang for landlord or 3rd party complaints within 15 working days.
If this final decision does not resolve your difficulty, you may at that stage apply to one of our governing bodies below once the internal complaints procedure has been exhausted.

If your complaint is in relation to return of your tenancy deposit, at this stage a dispute should be raised with Letting Protection Scotland: https://www.lettingprotectionscotland.com/tenant-info
