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 other hand, they can change a date with little notice for any reason (e.g. the inspector is on annual leave. Seriously!). Inspection takes more than one hour, they take digital photographs everywhere, obviously including personal...

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

By far the worst experience I have ever had with a letting agent. I decided to go with Clyde after being assured repeatedly by the lovely lady who showed me a dozen or so flats, how Clyde Properties had the highest standards in Glasgow, that all the outstanding painting and repairs would be done and the flat would look fist class....They had standards that landlords had to work to, I felt assured, and even though their deposit was high at 6 weeks, even though I could not move in until the end o...

Clyde property were highly recommended to us when we were selling our terraced house in Victoria Park Drive South. The estate agent was very efficient, the marketing of the property was fantastic with great photos, description and floor plans. Viewings were well organised by the office and we were delighted when our property sold within a week of going on the market. Very impressed. We would certainly use them again and gladly recommend to others....

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 West End branch. Jennifer Thomson seems nice enough but is inexperienced and powerless to help tenants. I requested curtains for the bedroom of my property to allow me to deal with the 21 hours of sunlight Glasgow gets in the summer months. Even this ...

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).

Just an awful experience from start to finish. Dealt with Yvonne mainly but also others within the office. She was particularly bad and made many mistakes along the way. Each time a mistake was highlighted i.e. no letting sign outside property, using old photos from years previous, not placing the apartment on their website in time, there was not apology but somehow the problem was attributed to us or someone else. Instead of providing any customer service or feedback throughout the process...

Absolutely appalling service throughout. I am a landlord and let my property through the west end branch. There was no communication from Clyde at all; not when the tenant didn't pay their rent in 2 weeks, nor when there was an inspection, nor when the tenant moved out. They don't provide any customer service and direct you to a website if you ask a question, or transfer you to a number of different people. When the tenant checked out I received no communication from the 'check-out manager' abou...

Rented a flat from them which was also managed by them. Had several problems in the flat and they simply ignored my emails and calls. After vacating the property they made a ridiculous list of problems such as Seal inside washing machine is slightly discoloured, Mains powered smoke alarm has red light showing cracks in bathroom seal in the left corner etc. etc. Even things that we called them several times as issues (even upon entering the property) were listed!

Absolutely Shocking! Trading using a brand that long ago forgot about customer service. The initial meeting and valuation seemed to be fairly positive and we were excited. However, almost immediately after we had signed up to sell, Clyde became distant. We spent the next few weeks frantically chasing things and pushing them to get simple tasks such as putting the property online. They continued to miss deadlines (set by themselves!) and the process dragged on longer than we felt was acceptable....

'Valuer' point blank refused to give us any idea of fees and charges. When specifically asked 'Are you saying that you are refusing to give us any information unless you come to the house?' The answer was 'Yes, that's right'. Despite the fact that they have sold flats like ours recently and we specifically said that we have limited time available and needed some information before choosing who we can arrange times with. Adversarial and unprofessional. No respect for customers....

Even from the initial encounter of moving into the property was a nightmare and if it hadn't been that my friend needed a flatmate I would probably have just walked away. The property was a two bedroom property that had been leased by my friend and her friend the previous year. As the other tenant was moving out my friend, who wished to keep the flat on for another year, asked me to move in. We thought this was would be simple as plenty of notice was given to the agency that this is what we wa...

My partner and I had found a great house to rent through Clyde Property. We arranged a viewing for 3pm. It was a block viewing. We arrived at 2.35 and there were 3 other people there at that time as well. One couple with a car and one lady who had walked there. The agent arrived at 2.45, asked our names and let us in. The other couple ran straight inside, straight up the stairs and straight back out into their car. Alarm bells were ringing! My partner and I looked around, loved the place and ask...

As a professional person and a prospective tenant, I have to say I am shocked at how poor the customer service and how utterly 'inane' the "company policies" are. I currently reside in London and called to ask for a viewing which would be conducted by a family member. The west-end drawling women told me that it was 'company policy' not to permit third parties to view on behalf of tenants and that this was because holding deposits had been paid and then tried to be withdrawn. This woman...

Unprofessional - incompetence - dishonesty. I was accepted for letting a property. Myself and partner went through MARAS checks etc which I was charged £90 (45 each). Received receipt stating holding fee taken, agreed rent and first payment details. A week later, it was around 2 weeks before entry date, I was told rent is actually £75 a month more, this was an admin error. At this point it was still on website at price agreed.

Changing of contact person many times without informing me, resulting in not knowing who deals with what. Very expensive repairs compared to my own home, they do not provide quotes to allow comparison and it seems to me that tradesmen have a "blank cheque" to charge what they want.

Invoices for repairs surfacing over a year after the repairs were carried out - this is a shocking way to run a business a...

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.

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.

I\'ve had three different people email me in a week, none of whom talk to each other. I\'m not sure for what they charge a monthly fee as all they seem to do is pass on the emails from the tenant with no added value. The fees they charge for everything are significantly above the rates charged by other more reputable agents. Disguusting service in general, summed up that whe...

I was barked at that I needed to complete referencing and because I am self-employed I might not be able to get it. This is ridiculous, I had written evidence with me to prove that I could more than cover the rent. The ...

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.

They gave us a property which was essentially unsecured. All the windows had a mechanism to prevent someone opening the window from the outside - bar one. We were burgled by someone who entered through this window. Not completely foreseeable (if a bit careless) on Clyde\'s part, but since they have installed a burglary alarm that does not work. We have contacted them on a couple of occasions about this but they always say they\'ll "get back to us" and never do. We only received a phone...
