What will you do if you don`t renew your rental contract - just leave it empty?
Also, to all those who like myself have outstanding snagging issues and missing items, according to next years rental contract, the apartment has to be of a certain standard and contain certain equipment for Barcelo to renew the contract. If Galaxy have never done the snagging in the first place and never properly furnished and equipped it, I am a little worried that Barcelo will say it is now our responsibilty to get this done at our expense. Any thoughts?
Hi Pint of Guinness
I agree with Pete on the snagging, I'm afraid it's a case of doing it yourself. We shouldn't have to, but the reality is that Galaxy are probably not going to do it. They make all the right noises and tell you what you want to hear, but don't actually do anything.
I have done all my small snagging myself, extra grout in the bathroom, resealed the bath, covered the scratches on the furniture with scratch cover, re-stuck the skirting board back which had come away, etc.....
It's a damn nuisance as I couldn't find anywhere over there to buy the repair stuff so had to buy it over here (UK) and take it with me.
I've still got outstanding things that I just cannot fix myself - a burn in the carpet, a damaged lampshade, an extractor fan that doesn't work and a sofa bed that doesn't work properly. Having said that, it hasn't stopped me from renting out and I just think you've got to take a step back and ask yourself what's the minimum I have to do to get it rented out. In my opinion, if you cover the community charge with rental income, then that's a good start.
In your previous post you said that you have missing items. What's missing? Are they large things like furniture or small things like utensils etc.
