For some owners, there may be a preference to rent over a longer period to an individual or family.
Some working professionals who are more or less permanently based on the coast - perhaps employed in the booming leisure economy of Marbella - are ideal, stable tenants.
There are pitfalls, from an owner's viewpoint, associated with agreeing a long term rental in Marbella - under Spanish Property Law. But we have experience of covering our owners, so that there are no potential tenant problems in the future. Talk to us about the legal position of longer term letting of your Marbella property.
We have established - with our lawyers - our own short term agreements - from 1 month to nearly 1 year.. These are legally binding contracts under Spanish property law, which ensure you are protected from any extended occupation rights on the part of your tenant. Our contracts are also fair to our tenants, so everyone wins.
The big advantage to "buy-to-let" property investors from a long term tenancy is that your returns are secure and locked in - as long as you have a good property manager on the ground to look after your interests.
Discuss your property needs with us, and explain what your expectations are. We are sure we will be able to help or advise you - Angela Sharp Property Services, Marbella, Spain

We are absolutely delighted with the services and attention we have received from Angela, and we couldn't recommend her more.
Her dedication and management operation really is first class, and we really appreciate having someone around who has been on the Marbella scene for so long, and really does know how to solve any problems here.
What was (initially) a business relationship has become a true friendship - involving high levels of confidence, trust and integrity - all the things you would really want from a manager of your home in Marbella

We have worked with Angela Sharp for several years now - we own a luxury apartment to the East of Marbella. We recently purchased (2006) a large new villa on the hills above Marbella, and although the builder was top class, we needed a lot of 'finishing' work done - to get the property up to the standard we wanted.
Angela and her team were - as ever - on hand to chase up all our contractors and help fix all the 'snag list' items that needed doing. We have said - quite honestly - that we just couldn't have done this without Angela - she is our 'eyes and ears' on the ground, here in Marbella while we are away.
We really do look forward to working with Angela over the coming years, as we have in the past - we trust her implicitly to do the best for us
