Unlike many other agents who offer various packages that go up to so called 'gold standard' to allow them to charge around 1,000 per year, we offer just one level of service which is always a gold standard.
For this we provide a management service that includes:
● A regular property inspection
● Reports of defects or problems including photographs if appropriate
● Key holding
● On site agent in Spain
● Obtain estimates from trusted professional for any works or improvements
● Contact for your guests
● Property Preparation (We will always make sure that every property has toilet rolls, working light bulbs and batteries for remotes)
● For those clients who wish to let their properties we also include advertising on a minimum of 2 major property web sites for no extra charge.
As with our management fee, our cleaning charges are clear and fair.
The charges are based on the property size and incorporate the linen and towels.
The only variation of these charges will be where a property may have additional external areas, rooms or beds. In these circumstances charges will be agreed between individual owners and the area office.

● Information Folder for the Property

Why do you need a professional property management company?
Whether you intend to let your property out or just keep it for yourself you really should consider the implications of not using a professional service.
Just some of the things that could happen to your property whilst left empty:
● Break in
● Water leak can be from your property or into it from a neighbouring property.
● Electricity or water cut off
● Insect Infestation
● Water penetration
● Damp or mould growth
Any one of these left unattended could lead to a very nasty surprise or expensive bill when you next visit your property.
If you are letting your property out, can you really take the risk of giving out keys and hoping that that everything will be alright when guests or yourself arrives?
If you decide to cut your costs and rely on a helpful neighbour or someone you know who looks after a few other properties will they be able to handle an emergency?
If the boiler blows or the water is cut off when you have guests in the property, will your helpful neighbour be prepared to pay out for an emergency repair or have a service reconnected?
If the person holding your keys is not a legally registered business do you understand the consequences of entrusting your property to such a person?
In the event of your property being burgled,
your insurance will be invalidated if the company learns that such a person
has keys to your property. Should the police become involved, the non
registered individual could be fined for tax evasion and charged for
illegally running a business.
If any of the events listed above occurs how will you resolve them from another country?
For just 6.34 per week we can offer peace of mind and a means of dealing with these problems should they occur and, even more important, prevent some of these problems occurring in the first place.
Remember, your property in Spain represents a considerable investment, is it really worth taking a risk with it?
