Property managment in javea. Your home in Spain is a big investment and therefore it is important that it is properly looked after and it’s not an area that should be overlooked when you are renting your property, or even if it is standing empty for long periods of time.

Key 2 Properties offers a first rate management package which will ensure that your property is looked after by a team of professionals to the highest standard giving you complete peace of mind.  Sometimes, it is not enough to rely on friends and neighbours if you are not in the country, as quite often the management of a property can be very time consuming and can stretch a friendship to the limit.

Once you have decided to long term or holiday let your property there a few things that must be put into place before this can start.  As a landlord you are contractually obliged to ensure that your property is fit to rent, including the grounds, gardens and pool. This means that it must be clean, that appliances and boilers etc are working, inventories need preparing to go with the contract, keys cut and managed, digital pictures taken to show the condition of the property and its contents and more.  Getting this right means it will be a smooth transition when the tenants to move in.

Once the tenants move in they are responsible for the day to day upkeep of the property, but jobs such as fixing the pool pump if it breaks down, hard pruning of garden plants, repairing the boiler if it breaks, repairing damage after storms etc, will usually fall under the landlord’s remit.
