We select homes from our own portfolio to avoid resorting to real estate agencies whenever possible and, in this way, minimize costs.
We handle the requirements related to both short-term (less than 6 months) and long-term stays.
We stay in contact with the landlord and tenants after the contract is signed to intervene in any problem which may arise related to the home.

End of stay services.
We contact the expatriate employee by e-mail or phone according client´s instructions.
Additionally, we deliver a questionnaire by e-mail to find out his/her preferences on the characteristics of housing, schools and schedules in order to establish a calendar which is in line with these preferences and needs. Through these activities, we are able to arrange all services that the employee will need upon their arrival in advance.
Our services during this phase include:
Meeting the expatriate at the airport and accompanying him/her to their hotel.
Tour to orient employee with potential living areas. The Tour Madrid is a first visit to the city before the expatriate’s actual move. During the tour we take the employee on a tour to familiarize him/her with the city, paying special attention to the residential areas near schools which may be of interest to the expat and their family, or areas near the city’s downtown business district, or any other areas which are in line with the lifestyle that they want to enjoy in Spain. All of the above is, obviously, conducted within the guidelines and limits established by our client.
Sélite Int’l will provide the expat with information on basic infrastructures such as communications, shopping centers, sporting areas, hospitals, banks and, in short, all those needs which may arise in the daily life of the expatriate and their family.
Visits to potential homes and schools, if applicable.
Opening of non-resident bank accounts.
Services after the definitive arrival
In order to guarantee the greatest number of housing choices in the shortest possible time, Sélite Int’l has its own portfolio of homes and excellent contacts with the most prestigious real estate agencies in Madrid.
Our services during this phase include:
Conducting one or more tours, depending on the expatriate’s needs, until they choose a new home.
Formalization of the lease agreement including the connection or change of utilities (water, electricity, gas) and other services (cable/satellite television, telephone/internet, cleaning services, etc.).
School search: We provide information on the schools which have space available at any given time, according to the guidelines established by the parents, in preparation for registration of the children. We schedule meetings with the Academic Advisors of the preferred schools so that parents obtain information about study programs, characteristics of teaching methods, and school facilities. Once a school is chosen, we provide assistance managing those processes necessary for the child’s actual registration.
Civil registration with local authorities.
Change of bank account from non-resident to resident.
Once we are notified by the client of the date that that expatriate employee will leave their position in Spain, we immediately send a letter to the homeowner in name and on behalf of the tenant, of acknowledgement of receipt requested, signed by the personnel of Sélite Int’l in which the homeowner is notified of the termination of the lease agreement.
We make an appointment with the owner and expatriate in the home, coinciding with the return of the keys, to verify the state of the home and take utility meter readings for subsequent calculation of the amounts due for payment. Our client is informed of the amount which will, in each individual case, be deducted from the deposit, and provided with follow-up information until return of the agreed-upon deposit amount is verified.
In addition to this service, oversees the following activities during this phase:
Disconnection of utilities and cancellation of services.
Closing of bank accounts.
Withdrawal from registration in the civil registry.
When necessary, management of the required documentation for the future destination (VISAs, certifications, reports, document certification, etc.).
In keeping with the professional standards exercised for each and every expatriation case up until now, addresses any question or request for assistance which an expatriate may have within the scope of our work.
With respect to the state of the home, we verify the functionality of the home’s installations and measure any potential abnormalities which may arise that can’t be attributed to normal use of the home.
We also ensure compliance with the terms which may be agreed to in the contract such as installation of an air conditioning unit before an established date, etc.
We understand that the attention that we pay to the unique needs of each expatriate, from help in the hiring of service staff to information on schools near their homes and teachers of all kinds, and other services, plays a decisive role in the expatriate’s family’s integration.
Commitment to Continued Service

This is our commitment and guarantee of service.
