Renting a house, villa or apartment in Javea on a long let or long term rental is a great idea.
A long let in Javea is ideal for people who want to get to know the areas of Javea before they buy a property. A long term rental in Javea or a long let in Javea is perfect because you can even keep moving from area to area in order to experience the differences.
RENT A PROPERTY IN JAVEA BEFORE YOU BUY
Often people buy a property in Javea without having any knowledge of the area or spending anytime in Javea first. Once they get to know the area they often wish they had bought their property in a different part of Javea.
Of course many people opt for a long let in Javea because they don’t want to buy a property in Javea. It may be that they can’t afford to buy in Javea or that they are saving or thinking that prices may come down.
FINDING A LONG LET IN JAVEA
Whatever the reason for wanting a long let in Javea or a long term rental in Javea you will find a limited amount of properties available.
This is because as a holiday town Javea is very busy and full in the summer. Many property owners rent their properties out over the summer season on a short term let basis when they can charge very high rental rates.
Of course a property owner in Javea may prefer to long let as it is consistent and they don’t have to keep finding new people each week and dealing with the work that goes into cleaning and making up a property on changeover days.

WHY RENT LONG-TERM?
Renting a house, villa or apartment on a long let or long term rental is a great decision if you are moving to Javea on the Costa Blanca of Spain. So many people take a quick trip to Spain in order to buy a house and it is only later that they find out many truths about the area and location which causes them to regret making such a hasty decision.
Buying a property in Javea is such a huge commitment that renting first on a long term let or long term rental to try before you buy is so obvious, yet not enough people do it. When buying in Spain you have to pay 10% of the purchase price to the government so that is a lot of money down the drain if you want to move later on.
A long term let or long term rental in Javea enables you to really feel what an area is like in different seasons.
Some areas in Spain are too hot in summer and some areas are much wetter than people think (Barcelona area) and some areas are much colder in winter than people realise. Again – a long term rental in Javea enables you to feel it for yourself and decide which part of Spain you prefer.
A long term let or long term rental in Javea can even help you decide whether a move to Spain is really for you. One of the most important factors in moving to Spain is making a living and many people struggle and have to go back to their home country to make ends meet. You may find it hard to sell your house or apartment and may sell at a loss because you are desperate to move.
Renting a property on a long term let basis in Javea enables you to really get to know an area by talking to locals to find out where the best areas of Javea are. It’s these little details that are crucial. Schools in Javea are another good example that are very hard to research thoroughly until you are actually here.
Now you are hopefully convinced, let’s talk about the details of long term lets and long term rentals in Javea.
Long term lets or long term rental contracts in Javea are often referred to as Vivienda contracts.
These should be much cheaper than short term lets because they are typically for a period of a year.
You won’t be able to move out within incurring a penalty. After the first year you will usually be able to out with only a months notice.
Long term rentals in Javea usually involve putting down a deposit of a month or two in the case of furnished properties.
Finding a long term let or long term rental in Javea is not easy because in many areas people can charge such massive prices for summer holiday rentals so they don’t want a long term rental tenant in during these periods.
The best places to find long term rentals or long lets in Javea is through the local estate agents. You won’t generally find them advertised much, so phone or go inside and ask. This is because estate agents make so much money through selling property instead.
LONG TERM WINTER LETS IN JAVEA
If you are looking to escape the cold winter weather and temperatures in northern Europe then finding and locating a long-term winter rental in Spain is a great idea as the weather in wintertime is often mild and sunny.
Also at this time of year many villas and apartments will be empty so you can find cheap bargain prices for winter lets in Javea.
PROBLEMS & POSSIBLE DOWNSIDES
There is one major downside to a long term rental let in Javea. After the year the tenant has the right to renew for up to five years and the landlord can only increase the rent by the annual rate of inflation. So what’s the problem!
Well because the tenants have so many rights, after a year you will find many landlords will want you out and will get different tenants in. It means you have to move over and over again but the upside is you experience living in different types of houses in different areas of Javea.
In any case, after a year’s long term rental or long term let you probably have a better idea of where in Spain you would really like to live now – it may not even be in Javea – almost certainly it will be in a different area to the one you would have chosen before you moved to Javea.
