Is your property in France ready for winter?

Created: Thursday, 03 October 2019 Written by Mark Jansen
Freezing temperatures can lead to burst pipes, damage to equipment and if you have not made the necessary precautions, insurance companies may not pay out to cover the cost of repairs.

That is why we recommend the following:-

  1. Check all windows, doors, shutters and locks to ensure the property is secure
  2. Close the main water drain and all outside taps
  3. Check the heating system
  4. Set the thermostats to anti-freeze

There are of course many other things you should consider before locking up one final time before you leave.

Jansen Property offers two winter packages to give property owners peace of mind over the colder months:

  • One-off Property Winterisation service to close-up your property before the winter, including checking everything is in order
  • Annual Property Management service. This includes a regular monthly call, ensuring that any problems are dealt with quickly should they occur. We also provide a monthly inspection report with photographs.

Please get in touch and we will be delighted to provide more information about either option.

At Jansen Property Services we make it our business to ensure you can enjoy your second home, carefree. Whether you are looking to buy, undertake a renovation or construction project, rent out your second home or need some help with pool or garden maintenance, we’re the only number you’ll need to call. Alternatively visit our office by appointment in Villeréal near the Gendarmerie in the building of our partner, Immobilier Sud Périgord (at the old petrol station).

Yair & Hila
Hila and my self ( Yair) would like to strongly commend Mark and Sandra for the outstanding renovation they planned and executed in our new property acquired early 2019 named Le Brugal near Monpazier Dordogne. We could not have chosen a more professional , responsible and committed team to conduct ,what to us seamed originally to be quite a challenging hurdle e.g. renovating a French country house on a 6000 sqm property with a swimming pool, with intention to convert it in to an appealing property for short rentals to families desiring a vacation in Dordogne's France. Mark and Sandra's ideas, their attention to our taste and to the details and their strive for perfection was outstanding. Mark and Sandra assumed full responsibility for anything from buying small furniture items all the way to dealing with replacing large infrastructure necessities such as tiles around the swimming pool. The compliance with predicted budgets, the close liaison and progress repor...
