Property Management and Maintenance Services


From our base in Sainte Jean D'angely, French Property Matters provides property management and maintenance services across the Charente Maritime and can assist you in a variety of ways. We will do as much or as little as suits you best. We work to high standards and we always provide regular and detailed reports (with digital photographs) about the properties we look after.

Owning a property in France as a second home, or for letting, can be a pleasurable and profitable experience but it can catch out the unwary. When problems arise, both insurance companies and police take an extremely dim view of owners that have not followed the “letter of the law”, or have not used properly qualified and registered Artisans, this can result in insurance claims not being met and in some cases prosecution can follow. Having your property looked after by a registered property management company that has experience, competence and capability is a must.

To provide you with complete peace of mind we are fully registered and insured for all of the work we complete and the equipment that we use. Furthermore, over time, we have come to know the best Artisans for requirements that we are not registered to complete and as we pass to them a lot of work, they in return will prioritise your work, along with providing you with preferential rates. As we see this as part of the service we provide to you, there is no mark-up of prices and the bill is sent directly to you by the Artisan.

At French Property Matters, we offer a range of property management services and will build a package to suit your specific needs and requirements.
