These guys will do any thing to add on extra costs and squeeze extra money from you. Do not ever sign up to rent from this company. While their rent may look cheap on the surface you will end up paying out the nose to move in and to move out.

My wife and I rented an apartment, after moving to Springfield, while we were house shopping. We requested a six month lease and let the leasing agent know that we were buying a house and would probably vacate early and agreed to the fees for early lease termination. As suggested by the leasing agent, we had out utilities added into our rent as a set monthly fee. Any amount that was unused would be returned to us. \n\nBut that didn't happen. No record of our utility use (meter readings and monthly dollar amounts) was ever supplied to us. And at the end of our lease, the wonderful man who runs this place said that we didn't get any back because we vacated early. Well why on earth then did they suggest that we use the utilities plan, when we had already told them we would probably be there less than our six month lease.\n\nNow I'll get to the bad parts. \n1. The heating system is a window ac unit that is punched through the brick wall. It was not sealed up and I had to stuff towels around it to keep the cold out. \n2. The windows leak FROM THE TOP EDGE, when it rains hard.\n3. We were the only lot in the area that was not plowed, when it snowed. Most cars were stuck in front of the apartments. \n4. The wifi is a joke and it's documented on the internet clear back to 2008 that the system is over loaded. FYI, Mr SouthWood Owner, you can't use one residential ATT account for 100 users. You have to buy a T1 connection or quit telling people that you have free wifi.\n5 Upon vacating , they will make up any fantasy issue to try to steal your money. They were going to charge us 20 bucks for cobwebs that were stuck in the popcorn ceiling. Give me a break. We tried to clean them and the ceiling started coming down. The also love to charge people for repainting a wall, when 2 seconds of spot paint will touch up a nick on a 40 year old wall of bland white paint. I guess 100 bucks for that seems to make sense to them. \n6. Half the machines in the laundry room didn't work until I put work orders in on each machine.\n7. They grilled us about our credit and ability to pay, when my wife and I make well over 6 figures. Yet, we had a hooker living next door. Go figure. \n8. Don't forget the drug deals in the parking lot.\n9. Don't waste your time asking for the simplest repair. They will only make it worse. The exposed wiring under our leaky kitchen sink was just dandy. \n10 etc etc etc \n\nI have renters on my house in Texas and I would never treat them with the complete lack of respect and shifty, sly little used car sale tactics utilized by this so-called respectable landlord. He is a sleeze and has being sleezy down to a science. Expect that he will find a way to screw you, as all other reviews on the internet will attest to. \nYou would be better living in the cheapest hotel in town, rather than deal with this place.

If you are considering renting from Southwood Properties because of their reasonable prices, please take my advice: Pay a little more to rent elsewhere.\n\nYou will regret renting from this company.\n\nWhere should I start? They claim to have 24 hour emergency maintenance. When the element in my stove went out late at night, I called them. They told me they couldn't make it out that night, but that they should be able to come take a look at it in about two or three days. ....Okay, poor college kid here can't afford to eat out every day. What am I supposed to do for food until it's convenient for THEM to come fix my stove? \n\nAlso, as 'Ms Parent' stated previously, their ""free"" internet loads pages at about the same rate as dial-up. I ended up getting internet service from another company after all.\n\nThe receptionist in the office is ancient and unnecessarily rude. If you go into the office to pay your rent, she will ignore you until it's absolutely necessary. She's very strange in general. Also, if you need to ask her a simple question, she becomes angry (possibly because she didn't comprehend the question?) and speaks to you like she's scolding a child.\n\nThe management will ""play favorites"" with tenants who kiss their ass; giving them extras, letting them have pets without paying extra for them, etc.\n\nOverall, my experience has been generally unpleasant. I have not yet moved out, but rest assured I will post another negative review if they try to hit me with outrageous fees when I do.

This company is terrible to deal with. We rented an utilities paid apartment for our son at Missouri State in 2010. The apartment was missing light bulbs and I went with a associate to get bulbs which he could not find so we supplied our own. On termination, we were charged for bulbs. The bedroom wall air conditioning unit was loud and we were told it would be repaired/replaced promptly. It eventually died (90 degreee heat) They finally took it out and covered up the hole with a tarp and duct tape. The included internet was nonexistant. On lease termination they come up with all kinds of stuff that was wrong with the apartment and we had to pay $190 for cleaning, paint, light bulbs and a ficticious broken oven handle. It took more than 2 weeks for anyone to get back to me or my son. They then refused to talk to me as my name was not on the lease. Finally an itemized bill for the above was sent. Stay away from them. They will tell you what you want to hear and then do what they want to do. It was a life lesson for our son.
