Worst experience we have ever had with a letting agent. • Flat inspection is strictly every 2 months. Inspection dates strictly assigned in advance, and cannot be discussed or changed in any circumstance by the tenant. They can come any time during that day. On the ...

The agent required us to pay £45 per tenant for a "full credit report" with their partner company MARAS. This is ILLEGAL in Scotland.

Clyde Property forced me to pay a referencing fee to MARAS, even though this practice is illegal in Scotland. From reading online, I have found that they do this to all tenants. Judy Graham is extremely rude and made me feel very unwelcome in the ...

Comment on agent fees
They force tenants to pay a referencing fee, which is illegal in Scotland. They get around this by claiming it is really the landlord who is asking you to pay, and by getting tenants to pay directly to a company called MARAS (a shady subsidiary of Towergate Insurance, who should know better).

What agent could do to change your mind?
Service could be improved by a single point of contact and informing (simply via email) when that contact changes. Getting 3 quotes for all repairs to allow a price comparison to be made rather than simply instructing repairs and only informing what the cost will be after the tradesmen have completed. Never before have I had to pay for a tradesmen to \"diagnose\" a problem, in my personal experience this should be free.

What agent could do to change your mind?
Concern there appeared to be lack of transparency regarding ‚£34,585 factor fee for essential structural work. We were told they don\'t need to mention this as solicitor when doing the conveyancing should ring factor and find out, then tell perspective buyer. When an offer was put in for second time ‚£15K above asking price, told seller had paid ‚£162K and was looking for that. Third offer of ‚£162,600 and ‚£164,100 ( later with furniture) told no, seller wants ‚£170K which is on home report. NB home report does not have known factor works identified. Factors have two estimates and one letter already sent out to people in block but no response. All other flats have tenants, only flat being sold has owner. Concern is lack of openness and that a buyer could be stung if unaware of fee for structural work and no one else in block resPonding to requests for work to go ahead. Asked by Lisa if I knew Scottish system as I should look at home report regarding price. Why then ask ‚£25K less and not make clear current outstanding essential repairs with large cost attached? Felt disappointed as though we could have had a much better experience regardless of outcome.

Train their staff to not be rude and obnoxious. Give their staff training on the referencing process. Teach everyone about common telephone courtesy and face-to-face customer communications. Or much easier.... Find new office staff for their byres road branch Judy Green is one of the rudest and most unpleasant women I have ever come across.
