There are other agents that do not charge for management or if they do its very little.  These agents are unscrupulous and often fraudulant.  They will rent your property without you knowing.  They will encourage you to stop your direct debits and will tell you they will pay the electric and water bills when they come in.  They do this to stop you from seeing your bills so you do not see the electric and water usage as you would know that somebody had been using your apartment.  They will also encourage long 11 month contracts so that they can get a full months commision.  After this and when the tenants gain entryto the apartment you will probably not get any more money.  When they leave the apartment it will be left in a dispicable state.  There will be damage, items missing and very dirty.  You really do not want to go down this road.  Almeria Property Services will never ask you to take your bills away from direct debit from your bank as these are your bills and it is up to you to pay them.  We will always collect the money for any bills outstanding and pay this into your spanish bank account.  We also now insist on any long term rental that you have a euro-meter. This is a coin operated digital electric prepayment metering system.  We offer this service to protect your interest and to stop any misuse of electric i.e leaving the air conditioning on when they go out. These units can be set on the exact rate per kwh that you are being charged.  We do recommend that you charge a small amount above that rate to cover your costs like standing charges etc.  We will only ever issue 3 month contracts at the beginning of the rental for the first 2 to 3 contracts.  We always ask for proof of work and income as it is essential for  us to establish they can afford your apartment.  We are genuinely concientious about your property for rent.

We even have bar owners now calling themselves property management companies.  Almeria Property Services is a legally registered property management company with 6 years experience.  We do not have time to run a bar as looking after apartments 24 hours a day is a full time job and requires total commitment.  You have to ask yourself will they have time to look after your property as well as run a busy bar in the summer.  I dont think they are able to give the commitment you require as a property owner in Spain.  If you would like any advice or further details on any of our packages please do not  hesitate to contact us.
