Owning a vacation apartment in Israel can be quite a challenge for absentee owners.
- Whom do you call when a pipe breaks or the refrigerator stops working?
- How do you know if the work being done will solve the problem and if the costs are reasonable?
- And what about the double municipality taxes the City of Jerusalem is now imposing on vacant apartments?
An apartment in Jerusalem is what dreams are made of. It’s supposed to be exciting and fun, a home away from home, not a burden. It should also be an opportunity to generate income instead of paying double taxes for an unoccupied apartment!
