Managing the rental of your overseas property from home rarely is a feasible option.

Long term, you cannot rely on the goodwill and generosity of your neighbours, a property management company is the only sensible solution.

Fees vary considerably depending on the management company and what you want them to do, so expect to pay somewhere between 20% – 50% of the rental. It is essential you agree exactly what is and is not included in the fees.
