For owners of properties not permanently resident in the Algarve it is recommended that consideration be given to appointing an agent to look after the property.
In selecting an agent, the following points should be born in mind:
- Are you dealing with a officially registered company and what references are to hand?
- What control do you have regarding expenditures on annual or monthly payments for items such as taxes, electricity water and telephone?
- Does the agent have the capacity to arrange rentals, in the event that you would like to rent out your property for all or part of the year?
- Which service companies does the management company use. What is the quality of expertise and workmanship of these service companies?
- How frequently does the management company check on the house during the periods in which it is not occupied?
- In cases of emergency can the management company be contacted at all times?
