Villas Management Services
If you are contemplating buying an Orlando Villa you will most certainly
require the services of a local company to manage and possibly to
rent out the property in your absence.
Your management company will perform many important functions, all
designed to maintain your property to the highest standards while
ensuring your peace of mind.
is a quick explanation of the functions performed:
Properties which are intended to participate in a short term rental
programs must be properly licensed with the Department of Regulation,
Division of Hotels and Restaurants and a Florida State Agency.
An annual fee will be charged. In addition, the State of Florida
will inspect each rental home before issuing the license.
1. A “2A40BC”
2. Additional smoke alarm for the hearing impaired.
3. All exterior doors, including the glass sliding doors, will
need a double locking system.
4. A rate card must be on file and maintained in the management
5. Smoke alarms in all sleeping areas, i.e. bedrooms and living
areas, and they must be inter connected.
In addition to the property taxes that every homeowner has to
pay a tax based on the gross rents received must be collected
for any rentals of 180 days or less. This tax is made up of :
1. A 5-6% Tourist Development or Resort Tax
2. A 6-7% State of Florida Sales Tax Total: 11-13% of gross rentals.
Normally these taxes are charged on top of the rents and paid
by the tenants - much the same as would take place with a hotel
collected and submitted to the appropriate agencies on a monthly
basis in compliance with the law. You are also assured that you
are properly registered. Sales Resort Tax is collected and paid
on the rental income generated from your property. It is the responsibility
of the owner to declare the rental income achieved on Owner Bookings
and to pay the relevant tourist tax.
All owners of rental properties must have a current homeowners’
insurance policy in effect. It is recommended that one million
dollars of liability coverage be purchased along with the standard
homeowners’ policy. The costs depend on the size of the home,
location and type of construction.

by your management company.
