IF you’re regularly absent from your home in the sun it’s not always safe to assume, once you’ve locked the door and walked away, that all will be well for your next visit.
Although for the most part the Costa del Sol has a wonderfully mild climate, time and extremes of weather still take their toll.
Regular attention is also needed to check for leaks, damp problems and insect infestations.
Neighbours and friends may be willing to keep an eye on your property and usually start off with the best of intentions. But as we’ve found over the years, when a real problem comes up (often at the most inconvenient times), they may not be able to cope.
This is particularly true when you rent out your property for holidays, or even just to friends and family.
You will want your new arrivals to find the property clean and well-maintained, beds made and hot water on. You will not want them to have to deal with plumbing problems, water leaks, fridges breaking down or electricity cut-offs during their stay.
This is where a reliable property management company with a good reputation can be an invaluable ally.
Your first thought will probably be the additional cost but it will be a worthwhile investment in the long run, leading to happier holiday clients who will want to return again and again.
Quite apart from the peace of mind it will give you, too!
As well as maintaining your property and looking after your guests, a professional management company will be able to advise you on legal issues, as and when they arise, and eliminate the stress and worry of being away from your home from home without knowing what is happening to it.
A good management company will have the resources to offer a high level of multilingual services to deal with any problem – major or minor.
If you have any concerns about leaving your property empty for long periods of time, or have bought it to offer holiday or long-term rentals, you have nothing to lose by talking it all through with the professionals.
You may decide it’s not for you but you could also find it was the best decision you ever made!
