      Be careful, I owned an apartment on a similar development but did not sign the rental agreement, I kept the apartment for my own personal use. Everyone that did sign ended up regretting it. The service charges were very high and if they cannot fill the apartments with golfers or holidaymakers you wont get paid. In pricipal great idea but………

      Hi Aidan,

      We were promised the same, if the development is a success this one might work. Our one still had building going on around it for years after the apartments were ready and the bookings that came demamded their money back etc etc. So at the end of the day unless they fill the units with fee paying clients they will go bust. In essence they want to fill it with people paying top dollar pass some back to the owners then take it back with high overheads. My one was in SeaGolf, Alcaidesa, great apartments rubbish management back then.

      I just sent an email with a request of info. Specifically: the contracts you sign for both buying and renting the apartment.

      Maria

      I have again requested for the contracts to be sent to me by the developer, I understand that the guaranteed rental return has been amended.

      As soon as I have them today, I will send them to you.

      I tried to phone and have left a message for you regarding the above.

      We also are about to work with developers in the area, and will need a contact for the region for conveyancing and legal matters.

      I understand and respect the nature of this forum and as a person working in the industry I have not posted here.

      However someone has posted on my behalf and therefore feel it right to reply.

      I sent the information to Maria regarding the development in question.

      It is being developed by Pierre & Vacances, one of Europes largest holiday providers. They own and operate Centre Parcs and MGM holidays.

      This is a touristic holiday village, if you buy, you can not live in it all year round. The guaranteed rental income is calculated by the number of weeks you use the property each year.

      We only deal with developers who guranatee the return.

      I will not put all the details on the board as it is not appropriate, however as my details were posted with my knowledge, I felt it correct to reply.

      Should anyone want more information on this very good and strong developement, please contact me directly.

      Hi David

      thanks for the reply

      I´m just confused with how they can guarantee rentals all year round in the light of the state of the rental market on the coast right now.

      I am confused as well, but, wouldn’t touch any rental guarantee, not worth the paper they are written on. Once they have your money its easy to go into liquidation..don’t fall for it.

      With respect Pierre Vacance are going to operate a holiday park here like Centre Parcs, which is a brand that they own.

      They are a major developer around the world, with over 55000 apartments under guarantee.

      You will buy a free hold unit on the development, that you can use at any time, however the more you use it the less return you receive each year.

      This system has been running in france for a very long time, all of their holiday villages are run this way, including recent Centre Parcs developments.

      I agree that many offer schemes, but you ensure that the money is bonded and the scheme is insured, if it is not then dont touch the individual company.

      As this is not a commercial forum, should anyone want to discuss this, please contact me directly or through Private Message.

      s,

      this company has properties all over France operating this leaseback proposion – they work by renting your unit to people visiting the Parc so people going for the weekend or week. As the Parc has a consistant record of occupancy they can “guarantee” the number based on history of other units.

      It has been operated (as far as I know and I dont see any French leasing nightmare websites) for a while – but then again French law is draconian if you get denounced and taken to court. (unlike Spanish law 😥 )

      So its just an expensive timeshare then 😉

      I can understand what you are saying, however with this scheme, you always own the FREEHOLD of the property and therefore it is very different to timeshare.

      I understand people frustration with guarantees, however there are major world wide tour operators who take units or indeed whole developments for 10 years or more.

      To protect your interest, ensure that the guarantee is indeed bonded and insured, so if the company goes bankrupt your money is guaranteed and subsequently paid.

      There are companies out there who offer this, we work with some, but only if the guarantee is in place and bonded as stated.

      Hope that this helps.

      so if you were to buy as an investment, and not use the unit, you could be guaranteed a minimum of 10 years rent???? at what percentage would that be?

      manilva isn´t exactly the holiday hotspot i must say, how would that work?
