Checking apartment

Hello everyone in Akbuk.
I have a new apartment in Akbuk, But i wont be out again till next year.So i am worried about it being left for so long without it being checked on. I know the weather can be very bad over the winter months.

Is there any service out there that can be trusted,As I've heard so many bad things about some companies letting it out while you are not there.

What sort of costs and what sort of services do they provide, Any help or suggestions are all very welcome...

Re: Checking apartment

Hi I'm sure some one who lives there and on here will guide you, but to be honest , lock up and don't give keys to no one ,there is many a stories to be told regarding leaving keys with others , even if you think their your friends .Your place will be standing , but a lot of cleaning when you get back there on the out side , but good luck and I'm sure not every one is bad ........ I hope

I use Lets Akbuk management services and they check our villa every week. Have always found them to be trustworthy, try them on their web site.

Think this is very sound advise, unless you have a very trusted friend. Sue xx

Re: Checking apartment

Personally I think a lot of these services are overrated, I had the same concerns when I first bought and before all these management services sprung up out of nowhere. But not having a choice at that time had to let nature take its course, never had any real problems but yes I spend a day cleaning and dusting and sorting whatever needs doing to knock it all back into line.
If you are really worried about it why not get a check say early march after the heavy rains have subsided and maybe a fortnight before you go out, do you really need a blanket every month (if they actually do the check) costly check when the weather is probably ok.
Rain seems to be the most common issue for causing damage and that is easy to check out during the summer months when you are there by simply using a hose, that will show up most weaknesses before they become an issue.

Re: Checking apartment

If you have a villa or an apartment on a top floor its advisable to have someone popping in regularly and after heavy rain/winds . Its amazing the amount of damage that can result from a leak and an insidious tiny drip throughout the winter . You should also check whether your insurance covers you for prolonged absences without inspections

Hi Just a thought as well , choices that are now in Akbuk are safe as houses. they accompany voices news paper , also use bowls of salt around the place , it takes the wet in when not used , also open the bathroom window if it's small and keep all doors open , including kitchen and wardrobe doors and let the air in . have air vents put in too , if you haven't any .
We never had a problem when we had ours by doing this , also i guess your insurance company will know your not around been a holiday home , but do inform em .
Enjoy you new home and don't get scared leaving it , you'll be ok
