Property Management is important to owners not living in close proximity to their home in Spain. We understand that your property is not just an investment; but that this is your home in the sun and respect the fact that it might need maintenance from time to time. We will act as your caretaker and ensure peace of mind in your absence. Our management package can be as flexible as you need it to be.
Regular Property Visit and Inspections
We will visit your home at least once a month to air the house, check and repair any minor maintenance problems. We will check that all the light bulbs are working, air the rooms, test the water to the bathrooms and kitchen and check for leaks. Humidity can be a problem and therefore it is crucial that the house is aired on a regular basis to prevent any build up of damp. We have a twenty point checklist to give you peace of mind.
