Communal Maintenance - How Much?

Hello all

I was wondering how much everyone paid for the communal maintenance and what was included in that amount.

I have set out below the amount we pay and what this includes and would be interest in comparing this to what other developments / owners pay.

Communal Maintenance = 806

Includes:

Pool machinery repairs
Pool repairs (tiles and grills around pool)
Pool deep clean and filling
Replacement pool filters
Pool light repairs
Pool umbrella repairs
Pool daily cleaning (6 months)
Pool daily maintenance including chemicals / chlorine (6 months)
Pool health checks every 3 days (6 months)

Garden deep clean at start of season
Some replanting
General garden maintenance

Security 12 months

Insect spraying twice a week

Water pump repairs
Water storage deep clean
Water filter replacements
Water pumps maintenance 12 months

Sewage machines maintenance (6 machines)
Sewage machines general checks (6 machines)
Sweage tank emptying
Sewage clean water discharging and bacterial treatment

Communal and individual water
Communal electric
Communal insurance

Would be interested in hearing what others pay and what services are included.

Thanks for the reply.

That works out at around 630 depending on the exchange rate at the time.

Re: Communal Maintenance - How Much?

OK, It doesn't detail what's included, but last summer we did a survey of 140 people on their monthly property management costs, maybe this will help give you an extra idea of what to expect: Poll: How much is your monthly management fee?.

Re: Communal Maintenance - How Much?

I would have thought that 800 was somewhat exorbitant.

You state that you have security, so this could appreciably add to the charges.
Obviously, on an open forum it's not a good idea to state security issues, however are you happy with them?
Are they 24/7?

Is the gardening up to your expectations?

Can you see the accounts?

Are you considering forming a committee?

I see that you are getting individual water included within your maintenance, so that's a bonus, little as it may be.

You have also, by the looks of things, have a sewage tank, so that will also add to the cost.

You have garden maintenance and you also have umbrella miantenance.

It does seem expensive, but are you happy with the service you receive?

Have you had a quote from other maintenance guys?

We were paying 400 last year, for very little, and were clearly ripped off.
Now got a new guy for almost 1/2 price.
We've only got a small swimming pool, and a garden the size of a matchbox.
Also have mains sewage.
Strongly suggest that you pay monthly, if you can.

David's poll shows that the most people are paying is 100 TL / month, which is approx 480 p/a.

If these owners are getting a similar service to yourselves, then you are clearly being taken to the cleaners.
