Our management services - Rent apartment duplex penthouse Monaco Monte Carlo

Our management services to provide assistance to our lucury clientele

The rental management a real chapter of the real estate agent work. Different from the Building Manager who takes care of the common areas and maintenance of the building, the rental management consists in supporting the owner for the accounting and technical matters of his apartment. This sector also helps the tenant in from the reservation of the apartment and all along during the rental.

Our team is at your disposal to assist whatever your needs. Our mission is to make your life easier as a tenant while protecting our owners’ heritage. We are highly concerned by the well-being of our residents and will anyhow do our best to fulfil your expectations.

The rental Management generally takes over the relationship with the tenants once the rental conditions agreed by the owner. We realize the lease according the conditions of the “Décompte de Location” (kind of financial agreement of the rental signed on reservation of the flat) and we directly exchange with the tenant to agree on a meeting date to sign the 3 original copies of the lease. These copies are afterwards registered at the Tax Authorities of the Principality, and this registered document will be requested for you residency card appliance at the Surete Publique (Desk at the Monaco Police)

Then, we will follow the tenant with all the administrative process revolving around his relocation in Monaco:
- Opening of the electricity contract at the SMEG and water if not included in the charges
- Taking out of the insurance policy, which is compulsory to be given the keys of the coming flat
- Connecting with all companies as Monaco Telecom for cell phone, internet and TV subscription
- Assistance to the bank account opening in Monaco
- Connecting with home designers, decorators, international moving companies…


The Check-In inventory is in almost all cases realized by a bailiff or an expert in real estate constructions. It gives to the tenant an external view of the apartment he will be renting. A complete an impartial report will be given to him with all details of the conditions of the apartment. This document is also sent to the owner and the agency managing the apartment so each party is given the same information. This check-in report is always at the tenant’s expense at the entrance and the amount is charged by the supplier himself. Most of the time, the agency estimates this work in order to take a first amount at the reservation of the apartment, this amount can be revalued on receipt of the invoice of the bailiff or the expert in real estate constructions. The keys will also be given during this check-in inventory so your life in Monaco can start here.

But our mission as real estate agents in Monaco does not stop there. We can propose an easy solution for the peace of mind of our clients. With our Administrative Assistance Contracts, we will remain your privileged partner during all the rental. We will support you and your family until the end of the rental. For a problem in the apartment or a water leak, our team makes all connection and attend all appointments with insurances, building managers, experts, regulatory organisation, working companies…. And during all the rental until the day of the check-out inventory where we can also assist in the restoration of the apartment.
