Alpha Consulting

They are utterly useless at the best of times. And charge a fortune for their laughable attempts too.

Well, they did a good job for me…I wouldn’t recommend something if I wasn’t satisfied myself :-)

For what?

1 m rent

I assume that's the fee for finding a tenant and not for ongoing management of the property.

The management of rented property is an area I am looking to get involved in also when I finally come over to live in Poland :o)

If it is, they saw him coming: normal rate is half a month's rent.

I feel kind of bad about owenomahony who came to this forum to get some help and it doesn’t look like he’s getting any. Instead ppl seem to stick to some completely different things (considering the original question). This seems to be happening all over the place at polishforums.com Many relevant to newcomers to Poland questions are either unanswered or answered extremely poorly. Usually, when people go to such forums they expect that the people answering their questions have somewhat good knowledge about the every-day things in the country (in this case Poland) and they are expecting an honest (positively worded) response. Many of you long-timers in this forum, might indeed be real specialist about the things in Poland, but for some reason this doesn’t come out in your response (which, frankly, are useless most of the time).

Cheers

Look mate, if I wanted to be an ars*hole about this, I could have posted to the original poster "I'll help you out and I'll only charge three weeks' rental rather than the standard four", then got a Polish company to rent it out at two weeks' rental and kept the difference for myself. It's not big, it's not clever, but it would be profitable.

However, as you ask nicely, I will ask my friend (or at least, only semi-human I know who works in real estate) about property management and then post back. Will that do you?

Property Management Companies in Warsaw

I own two upmarket two bed apartments in Wilanow, Warsaw. The are both furnished to a high standard. I live in Ireland and I require a company that will let and manage the apartments for me. I have used a company for several months and they failed to find a tenant for me. Can you recommend such a company. I also will discount the property if someone on the forum wishes to rent the property from me. The apartments are 86 square metres. My email is omahonyowen@hotmail.

Hi,

Is the normal rate that agents charge for finding a new tenant aro und the half month's rent? I was charged one month before (plus tax) and on top of that I pay 225PLN per month for essentially being my representative in Warsaw. I would welcome your thoughts as I am currently letting the apartment again.

Thanks,

Jim

Hi, I am also an apartment owner in Warsaw and I am paying 1 month rent + vat for management fees plus the 225 a month. This seems very high to me. Can anyone give me a name of a company who will do it for cheaper? How easy is it to transition to a new company?

the company I am with have been able to find me tenants and have secured good rent....that is also a consideration I suppose but I think I am still paying over the odds. Maybe I can negotiate them down? Anyone got any experience of this?

Also, if anyone has any advice on maintenance fees...I am currently paying the maintenance fees as the landlord which seem to be very expensive. Should I be paying these or passing on the cost to the tenant?

Any advise would be very welcome,

Thanks
Dee

Depends on what you wish to do - usually the charge will be loaded in there somehow, so either charge extra for the rent and pay the fees yourself, or make them pay themselves. It's quite common in Poland to have to pay these on top of the ret.
