Frequently Asked Questions



Why MMC Property Services?

Whether you rent out your property or not, you need a local person for several reasons:

  • No worries back home, we take care of your second home while you are away.
  • Personal attention for you and your home.
  • There are simply things you can't do from a distance.
  • Your guests are being taken care of and we make sure they'll feel at home.
  • We know the local people and can get you the best service and value for your money.
  • We are a professional, legally registered company
  • Because your second home is worth it.

Other companies may offer you key holding or property management services on the side, however for us it is our core business, that way we make sure we are completely focused on taking care of your home.


We take care of you, your home and  your guests.


Why contract professional services?

Of course there is always a helping neighbour, a friend nearby to keep an eye on your property, a gardener or cleaning lady who can hand over the keys to your tenants but taking care of a property can sometimes be a lot of work and asking favours can be a pressure on the relationship with that person. When you let a company handle all your needs you don´t have to worry about that, you are probably being able to ask more and some things are just better done professionally.

If you rent out your property your tenants most likely saved up for their holidays and spent quite some money renting your home, they deserve to be received professionally and being able to communicate in several languages. Being received in Spanish is the charm of being on holiday in another country but when there is a problem it´s nice if you can speak your own language. Besides, did you know that the advantage of having a company arranging this for you is that when you declare your rental income, you can deduct these invoiced costs in your tax declaration?

To whom do we provide our services?

Any home owner in Javea who needs help with their (second) home, on a monthly base or occasionally, whether you rent out your house or not.


What does it cost?

Our key holding services, including local contact services, start already from only € 7,50 per month. All our prices you can find here.

We would love to make an appointment (obligation free) with you to meet you personally and understand what you are looking for, what your wishes are and to get to know your home to be able to make a personal quote.


Vacant or occupied?

For a smooth collaboration we kindly ask you to always let us know if and when there is somebody staying at your home. This is important for us to know at all times for example to be able to attend quickly and correctly a call from your alarm company or to prevent surprises and not to disturb you with a property check at 9.00 AM when you, your family or guests are sleeping in.

How many sets of keys do we need?

We need at least one set of keys of your house however we recommend 2 sets of keys, that way if maintenance people go to your home (only with your approval) we always have an extra set of keys here e.g. in case we need to go to your home as well or check the work that has been done so far.

In case you rent out your property we recommend at least 3 sets of keys, 2 sets for the tenants and one set for us in case we need to attend any kind of problem. We will always make an appointment first and will not go to the house without the tenants knowledge.

Please note that the set of keys you give us needs to have all keys that give us access to all areas including maintenance rooms where the boiler or pool system are or where the gas bottles are stored. Keys you may not give to e.g. your tenants but are important for us to attend any kind of problem that may occur.


Are you legal?


Yes, MMC Property Services Javea SL is registered under VAT number ESB72432610 and for the holiday rentals we are officially registered with the Ministry of Tourism Generalitat Valenciana under the number EGVT-974-A.

About our Key Holding services


Are my keys safe with you?


All keys have a code that has no reference to the home nor the address of the house for security reasons.


We will only hand over your key to a person after your written approval, confirming that they on your behalf were allowed to pick up a set of keys or in case work needs to be done at your house that you agreed upon.


When can other people pick up my keys?

Anytime during openings hours from Monday to Friday your maintenance people, friends or family can come and pick up the keys (although it´s convenient to give us a heads up) and on Saturdays from 8.00h to 20.00h when you contracted our rental management services. Outside these hours only if specifically agreed upon beforehand (extra charges may apply).

Can MMC Property Services be the first contact for our alarm company?

Yes, of course, we would be happy to and this services is included when you contract our key holding services. It means we will be the contact for the company of your alarm system and will handle the call according to what we agreed upon. Not included are call outs to the house, in case we need to go to your home we will charge the corresponding rate per hour.  Again, also here it is very important for us to know if and when there are people staying at your home or not.


About our Property Services


What does the regular property check consist of?

We will visit your home on a regular base (the monthly frequency is in accordance with you) and check the house, the garden and the pool to see that everything is secure and in correct order. We use a check list, we look for any damages, leaks or humidity, check the water, gas and electricity meter and any special requests you may have for these visits.

How do I know you really visit my home in my absence?

You will receive a report by email after each visit with our observations and any recommendations if those apply. We will also include pictures of the water and electricity meter as proof, those can also be handy for you to check your bills.


About our rental services

What is the Meet & Greet service and how does it work?

With the Meet & Greet service for your guests we will meet them at your home to hand over the keys and give them a tour through the house. Hereby we explain them the basic things they need to know and we agreed upon with you as the owner on forehand. Of course before they arrive we check the property to see if everything is working correctly using our checklist and adding your special requests.

This service is available from Monday to Saturday from 08.00h to 23.00h (outside these hours and Sundays only on request) and needs to be booked with at least one week in advance due to limited availability by filling in the Meet & Greet form. (For last minute bookings made less than one week in advance please contact us by telephone).

In consultation we can also agree upon a pick up point and bring the guest to your home (extra charges may apply).

It's important to know that this service is based on a 2 hour service (including travel and waiting time, after that our normal rate will apply), therefore we need to know the arrival time of your guests and we will ask them to call us as soon as they leave the toll road or when having any delay.

Optionally you can add the “Your local contact" services and the SOS service to the Meet & Greet service. With the local contact services your guests can call or write us during opening hours with any question or request they may have, adding the SOS service they can call us 24/7 with any problem during their stay. With these two options a small welcome package is included in the price and provided by us.

What does SOS service mean?

This means that we will provide your guests with a telephone number that they can call 24/7 in case they have an emergency.


We will attend your  guests as good as possible over the phone. Call outs will be charged at the standard rates per hour. 


What is the check in service?

With the check in service we will check the property and make sure everything is working correctly using our check-in/ check-out checklist. After that we will leave the keys for the guests in the key box or make sure that they can pick them up at another point we agreed upon with you. It´s possible to hand over the keys to the tenants personally as well.

This service is available during openings hours and on Saturday (unless specifically agreed otherwise) and based on 1 hour service (including travel and waiting time, after that our normal rate will apply).

What is the check out service?

With the check out service we will check the property and make sure everything is working correctly and nothing is damaged using our check-in/ check-out checklist. In case we find any damage we will contact you directly in case you need to hold the safety deposit. This service will take place within 24 hours after departure of the guests and of course before any new guests arrive. In consultation and if possible we can do the check out at the departure of the tenants so they can give us back the keys.
This service is available during openings hours and on Saturday (unless specifically agreed otherwise) and based on 1 hour service (including travel and waiting time, after that our normal rate will apply).
What is the difference between check in service and Meet & Greet service?

  • With the Meet & Greet guests are being received and welcomed at your home and they get a tour through the house where we explain how several things work. With the check in service we only hand over the keys.
  • Meet & Greets are, whenever possible, provided in the language of the client (guaranteed we can offer English, Spanish and Dutch).
  • The check in service includes a standard check of the property if wanted, with the Meet & Greet we check the property before the arrival of the tenants based on our check list and your wishes.
  • Check in service is available during openings hours and on Saturday where Meet & Greet is available from 08.00h till 23.00h.
  • The check in service is an 1 hour service max. where the Meet & Greet is based on a 2 hour service.
  • The Meet & Greet is a personal and exclusive service where we really take into account your wishes and important things you want us to tell the client, at the end of the day each house is different.

What is included in the welcome package?

With the Meet & Greet + Your local contact services and  Meet & Greet + SOS services a small welcome package is provided by us (included in the price) and handed over or left at your home for the client. Including our phone number in case they need any further assistance.

In case you want to provide your guests with your own welcome package or create a welcome package in collaboration with us this is also possible, think of a nice bottle of wine with a card as a welcome, some drinks and snacks or the first groceries (water, coffee, tea, bread etc.) so they don't have to run of to the supermarket immediately etc.


Who needs to provide e.g. the bedlinen?

When you rent out your property you are responsible for the complete inventory of your home for your  tenants, including electrical appliances, (garden) furniture etc. and also bedlinen and towels (we do provide laundry service).

Who needs to send travel documentation to the tenant?

When the tenant makes the booking with you, you as the owner are responsible that they receive all the documentation regarding their booking, including the travel documentation and, well in advance, the information for their day of arrival.

MMC Property Services will provide you with a document you can send to your tenants about the procedure for their day of arrival and our contact details but of course  you are free to use your own documentation as well as long as tenants know where to go and what to do.

Who takes care of the safety deposit?

Although we can cash occasionally the safety deposit from the tenants for you, we prefer not to for several reasons and always ask our owners to charge the deposit for any damages and any extra costs from their tenants before arrival.


How will you attend jobs or problems while I have guests in my home?

We will always make an appointment first and will not go to the house without the guests knowledge. Therefore it's very important for us to know at any time if somebody it staying at your home.


It's not necessary for your guests to stay at home while work is done or to wait for the maintenance guy to come by, with their permission we can go and do our job without disturbing them. And in case maintenance jobs can be planned after their stay we will do this of course afterwards.


Invoices and payments


When do I need to pay?

Monthly quotes need to be paid at the beginning of each month, between the 1st and the 5th day of the month.

Any (extra) services provided during the month will be invoiced to you at the end of the month and need to be paid within 15 days.

For larger jobs normally a down payment is requested, in that case you pay the percentage agreed upon before starting the work and the rest once the work is finished.
