- Will I receive rental payments even if the apartment is not occupied or the tenant does not pay?
Yes, if you use the Security service option, you will receive rental payments in full. We take on the financial risks so that you can rest easy and regularly collect your rental payments.
Will you rent my apartment through Airbnb, booking.com or similar websites?
No, we rent apartments only to proven long-term tenants, for a minimum of one year. We have a special department for the administration of apartments for short-term rentals. The owners of these apartments require a short-term lease and must agree to it. These are apartments with a specific location and facilities, such as historic city centers, recreational areas (mountains, etc.) or spas.
- How long will you conclude a contract with me for?
We conclude a contract for one year, but if you want a longer period, it is not a problem. Your satisfaction is a priority for us.
- What type of contract will you conclude with me?
We conclude a rental agreement with the property owner, which provides the owner with regular rental payments, a guarantee of the condition of the apartment and the fact that we will take complete care of the rental of the apartment. If you prefer another type of contract, such as a management contract or a transaction-management contract, we will be happy to accommodate you.
- Can you help me with other matters related to my property?
Yes. We can help you
- How much will I pay for your services?
Depending on whether the maximum yield or security from 11 - 15% of the market rental price is more important to you. We will be happy to calculate the rental price for you without obligation. If you are interested, make an appointment with us, we will be happy to explain everything to you in person.
- How do you choose a tenant? Can I have control over the choice?
Of course - you always have the first and the last word. If you do not want a tenant in your apartment to keep pets or smoke, just say so. We will then take care of the tenant ourselves. In order to avoid the risk of dealing with problematic individuals, we thoroughly check all potential tenants in four registers of debtors and also in the criminal records. This is the only way we can be sure that they are solvent, reliable, and there will be no problems with them.
- How fast can you occupy my apartment?
We usually rent the apartment within one month. Our BES information system and many years of experience provide us with enough information for optimal rental pricing at the highest possible price (or a quick sale if you want to sell the apartment). In any case, we will pay the rent to you regardless of whether and when we rent the apartment.
- In what condition will you return my apartment?
In its original condition, taking into account normal wear and tear. We will take care of cleaning, painting, and everything that will be needed to make the apartment look like the same as when it was handed over. We take care of the apartment on an ongoing basis, and we will regularly inform you about its condition.
- How do you guarantee the condition of the apartment?
In addition to the points described in the previous answers, we take on the following risks:
- We take out compulsory household and liability insurance with each tenant.
- If an insured event occurs, we will take care of everything, you do not have to do anything.
- We discuss with the tenants the routine maintenance of the apartment and the necessary repairs.
- After the end of our mutual cooperation, we return the apartment to its original condition (taking into account normal wear and tear).
- How do you solve possible damages to the apartment?
Quickly, efficiently, and completely independently - whether it is an insured event or routine repairs. We take out an above-standard household and civil liability insurance contract with an insurance company. According to the contract, the tenant is obliged to keep the apartment in perfect condition. In addition, our insurance also covers damages caused by the tenant unintentionally.
- Who pays for repairs?
Minor repairs and maintenance are paid by the tenant from the insurance, which we are obliged to take out. We will completely settle any insured event and perform the repairs. All this is explicitly stated in our contract.
In the event more substantial investment, repairs, or reconstruction of the apartment are needed, which are the responsibility of the owner, we will submit an offer to you in advance for approval. All you need to do is confirm it and we will ensure everything is done.
Maintenance and repairs are performed by our qualified technicians. We cooperate with proven external suppliers on specialized and/or more complex tasks. In all circumstances, we try to keep your costs as low as possible.
- How do you check that everything is okay with my apartment?
Because prevention and the avoidance of problems is always cheaper, our employees personally check your apartment every time it is handed over to and taken over from the tenant, with whom we fill in an acceptance protocol (when occupying an apartment, we do so at least twice per year). You can always find photos and other information about your property on our website in the Client Zone.
- What if I already have a tenant and want a rental payment guarantee from Bohemian Estates?
We will simply agree with the tenant on a change in the rental agreement, which we will transfer to us. We will handle all the paperwork and communication for you. Practically nothing will change for the tenant.
- How do you handle advance payments for energy and services?
We will transfer the energy to our company, we will charge and pay for the services in the apartment building for you. If the apartment is part of an association of property owners, just send us a bill once a year and we will take care of it.
If you want to free your hands even more, we can also arrange outgoing advance payments for services. You can clearly see all payments in the Client Zone, as well as all other important information about your property.
- What is the difference between a real estate agency and Bohemian Estates?
- A real estate agency searches for tenants and there it ends. However, we guarantee you regular rental payments and guarantee the condition of the apartment.
- In which cities are your services available?
You will find our administrative centers in Prague, Brno, and Ostrava, but we also have a network of local service partners throughout the Czech Republic in all regional cities and throughout Central Bohemia and South Moravia.
- What properties do you rent?
We can rent any type of property: apartments, apartment blocks and family houses of all categories and layouts in all regional cities and throughout Central Bohemia and South Moravia.
We have specialized departments for the
administration of apartment buildings, which oversee all the technical and economic management of the buildings.
If you have a commercial or other specific property, let us know, we will be happy to calculate the price for rent and administration without obligation.
