You can contact a management service for letting your villa/apartment, you will need to make enquires locally or through the Agency you are buying through. You may be told of one or two agents that provide this service, but there are more, just remember to do your research while you are there, not just before you go, things are constantly changing.
Also consider whether the apartment you buy will be managed by yourself or a management agency.
- Whether the Management Agency will rent the apartment for you, perhaps they will advise it's not suitable for short or long lets because:
This is different. If you buy into a block of apartments or in a resort, there should normally be a Condominium Management service for all the apartments in a block and / or in the resort. The condominium management of a building will differ, as willthose in resorts. Annual charges may include costs towards common areas, maintenance of the building and cleaning of communal areas. In a resort there may be costs included for the upkeep and treatment of the swimming pool.
Also check what maintenance arrangements are in place for your property. Are you insured if things go wrong, will it cover contents. How will it work if you live in a block of apartments and you all need to share the costs for a repairs and what happens if one or two owners do not pay?
Think about how you will you deal with wear and tear and replacement of items after a number of years. Perhaps sliding doors, door handles, locks will get damaged, find out how easily these can be repaired or replaced.
Some developments have imported furniture, fixtures and fixings from Spain, Italy and UK but I would not expect them to have replacement parts on the islands, its not as if you or they can pop down to the nearest Wickes's or BandQ.
For those that are in individualy managed blocks of apartments built by other smaller developers, you may wish to ask about similar needs for your property, which hopefully will be provided by the current Management Service.
