Southside has so far been a wonderful agent to myself and my flatmates. Both staff members that have been in contact with us have been patient, polite, extremely knowledgeable and exceedingly helpful overall. Everything from applying for the property to the actual move-in has been simple and straightforward due to the efficiency of the staff, and any questions we had were promptly answered. We had a problem with our wifi so when mentioning it after we were contacted, I was ensured that Southside...

As a Canadian student studying in Edinburgh finding a place to live was very overwhelming. The process was different than what I was used to back home. Me and my current roommates (another Canadian and an Irishman) ended up choosing a property from south side and are incredibly pleased with the place and service we received. We found the rental market in Edinburgh was incredibly competitive and a lot of the other agencies weren't super friendly, we were just another group of students to them and...

He was very accommodating when we arrived ten minutes late and was very thorough in both showing the property and providing information. He was able to answer all of our questions regarding the property (heating, council tax band etc.) and was able to tell us a bit about the local area. He was helpful, professional and courteous....

I was a tenant of SPM for nearly 3 years and experienced numerous problems from day one. A detailed review will follow in due course, but for now, suffice to say that 1 star is too high a rating. An example of the shoddy practice from SPM: We moved into a large 4 bedroom property in Edinburgh, but were never advised that the property had 2 separate heating systems, one modern, the other an inefficient 'back boiler' system. This resulted in heating bills almost double what it should have c...

They make a big deal about not charging tenant fees. This is completely disingenuous, as it;s a legal requirement to not charge fees. SPM aren't doing you a favour or being kind, they have no say in the matter. No letting agents charge fees, not just SPM!

We had just been transferred to Southside from a Private Landlord and were a bit worried from all the horror stories of estate agents. I am happy to say we have been proven completely wrong . From the first discussions to sorting out complicated issues arising from the swap, Natasha and Southside have been amazing. Every message is responded to quickly, every query answered no matter how minor or major. Every member of staff we have talked to has shown a genuine interest in helping us sort out...

Have had ongoing problems with Southside for the past year. The main problem involved our plumbing, our shower and toilet had repeated problems. We frequently had a blocked toilet and toilet waste coming up through the shower. Plumbers who came out told us that Southside and the landlord were advised not to change the room into a bathroom originally and that this problem was inevitable. We were not told about this before we moved in and a previous tenant told us that he had experienced the same ...

Not good value for money. We have compared with other students in Edinburgh who have received flats with superior facilities and living conditions, plus better customer service than what we experienced, for less money. We are currently being charged exit fees for which we are seeking advice from LPS letting service.

Agent Fees

At SouthSide we have no upfront fee or hidden charges whatsoever for tenants and the only charge to landlords is 9% +VAT of the monthly rent and we do everything for you! If there are tenants in situ when we take on a property then our fee to landlords is reduced to 6%+VAT of the monthly rental and reverts to the standard 9%+VAT when new tenants move in. We also negotiate rates with external companies for legal certificates/requirements and do not take a cut of this cost, which is typical in our industry. We work with trusted maintenance companies and have negotiated fixed costs for their work e.g. landlord gas safety certificate for £39 incl. VAT. Many of our existing landlords who had managed their property themselves have said that as a result of our management and cost savings, this alone covers our management fee.
