On buying the Spanish property you will need to organise the utilities and set up to pay the bills by direct debits to your Spanish bank account. Our staff will take charge of all the arrangements and get your property connected to electricity, water, gas, telephone and Internet lines.
Those property owners who don’t live in Spain permanently may leave our telephone number as their contact number in Spanish utility companies, tax office, etc. Our employees commit to answer the office telephone within the company’s working hours (09:30 – 18:30, Monday to Friday) and immediately inform the owners on any call received in their names.
A good and correctly selected home insurance policy guarantees the coverage of all possible material damages caused to your property by an accident (fire, flood, etc.). Any home insurance includes civil responsibility cover which is especially important for non-residents who cannot look after their property 365 days a year; home insurance is obligatory for mortgage properties. Health insurance, in turn, gives you access to the best private hospitals in Spain.
