There are two things to consider when you own a property abroad. Firstly is the managing and upkeep of the apartment itself, for instance inside your front door. Secondly is the management of the building and common areas.
There are many companies here in Bansko that will and can look after both. Let’s look at property management of your apartment first. There are different levels of property management ranging from purely key holding to a full service including security checks, rentals management, cleaning, meeting and greeting etc. We work closely with many property management companies in Bansko and we find many people very happy with Alexander Services.

The maintenance and upkeep of the building is as important as the upkeep of your apartment. This will ensure that your property will increase rather than decrease in value and of course it will encourage rentals if you choose to rent your apartment. This maintenance is the responsibility of the owners together to organize and pay for. A new law was passed last year to help owners work together and manage buildings or employ a company do this this, if you would like to read more about the new law please click here (Condominium Act sent separately to you). This law will help maintenance companies and owners chase non payers and also give the owners rights to check that maintenance companies are doing their job right and even to appoint a new company.
