Long Term Lets in Javea, Moraira and Benitachell

Winter lets


 

Winter lets are very popular in Javea now, reducing the number of all year rentals available. We have done this guide to help owners and tenants:

Length of period

VillaMia organise winter lets and the period is a minimum of 2 months but can be as long as 10 months, so possibly September until June inclusive. The occasional winter let will include July but never August, when many owners use the property themselves or summer let it out.

Why winter let?

It is good for owners as properties are better when lived in during the winter to reduce the risk of damp as the property will be ventilated. It is better for security and an extra income for owners where in the past the property may have set empty.

For tenants, it may be people coming over to the Costa Blanca for a few months for better weather, using the property when they look to purchase in the area so just not ready to commit to an all year rental.

Average prices to expect

Prices range normally from 400 euros for a one bed apartment to several thousand for a modern villa will views. On average, a 2 bed apartment is 500 to 600 euros, a 3 bed from 600 to 700 euros, a 4 bed townhouse round 1,000 euros and a 3 bed basic villa from 850 euros.

The things to consider are:

Heating – it is better to have some form of heating as it can get cold in December and January. Gas central heating, hot air con, electric heating or log burners should be noted. An apartment without heating is viable and you can look into options such as putting rugs down, electric blankets and temporary solutions such as a gas estufa or oil radiators but a villa without heating is something you need to consider carefully.

Winter sun – it is better to be south facing and have winter sun as north facing properties will be colder

Internet and tv – many our of British clients want internet and English TV set up as if there isn’t any it can be expensive to set up, especially for a short term contract

Owners with the above are more likely to rent their property as there is so much competition now which was not there a year or two ago

 

Costs

The owners pay the IBI tax plus the pool and garden maintenance or the community fees if applicable. Tenants normally pay utility bills such as gas, water and electricity. Often owners include wifi and tv but sometimes this and the rubbish tax can be added to a rental.

There will be an agency fee for both parties to pay. The minimum charge is half a month plus 21% iva. Any contracts 6 months and over the owner pay a month fees plus 21%.

VillaMia will do the contract and make sure the entry runs smoothly. The inventory is the owners responsibility but we go through with the tenants and keep on file. The utility bills are often reimbursed for winter lets and VillaMia will work out the first split bills.
