Register of Short-Term Leases
According to the recent decision of the Independent Public Revenue Authority, the income from each short-term lease should be declared in the registry after the check-out of the tenant.
CloudKeys undertakes the process of reporting all leases on time and without any charge to the owner from the moment the AADE application is launched.
The process of integration of the property in the “sharing economy” as well as the registration in the registry according to the existing provisions of POL 1187/2017 is fully processed by CloudKeys.
Frequently Asked Questions About Short Term Leasing
Since the beginning of pandemic, before the government announced the travel restrictions, CloudKeys has been providing specialist equipment to cleaners in order to protect them from any possible contamination while cleaning the apartments
The cleaning process focuses on a more thorough cleaning using cleaners with strong disinfectant action.
We clean carefully, especially in places of frequent contact, while at the same time we disinfect furniture and surfaces using high-temperature tools.
Finally, the ventilation time for each apartment has increased significantly.
There is currently no government decision or Legislative Content Act (PNP) on short-term leases. All short-term apartment management companies are on the list of companies affected by COVID19. The general recommendations and social distancing restrictions apply to protect guests and staff working in our apartments and offices.

The average income from the properties we manage is over 150% more of the money a property owner could earn from a long-term lease.
The overnight prices for selling an apartment consist of many factors such as area, condition, equipment, seasonal demand, and dozens of other elements that we consider in order to formulate the pricing policy that will maximize income.
Our experienced team helps you maximize the occupancy and increased profitability of your accommodation. Many of our clients have increased their income by 70-200% compared to their previous collaboration with other companies.
CloudKeys’ safety process utilizes safeguards that encourage guests to respect the hosting space and prevent them from causing damage.
Our experience shows that usual property damages include broken glasses (from which we do not ask for compensation) or overloading the electrical or plumbing infrastructures (that usually has to do with the maintenance of the property infrastructure and therefore burdens the owner).
Only in exceptional cases, serious non-compensational damages may occur (either because the guest card does not have enough money or because Airbnb refuses to compensate).
In any case, we recommend insurance coverage for short-term leases. It is an economical solution that covers you in every case.
Yes and no! You must prove with evidence that the damage was caused by a particular guest in order for Airbnb to compensate you. In exceptional cases with high-value losses, an expert may be needed.
It is not always easy to get full compensation, so we recommend specialized insurance for short-term leases offered by several companies.
No problem! Your property will be registered in the CloudKeys account which has gained a great reputation on the Airbnb platform. This way you will have faster bookings than creating an account from scratch.
At the same time, we use booking.com which is an important source of income for your home. Depending on the case, we use other channels depending on the area and the type of property.
We register your home and use all the possibilities given to us by short-term rental platforms with advanced configuration and techniques that increase its visibility and maximize its occupancy and profitability.
According to recent legislation, properties that make short-term reservations no longer need a special EOT mark.

It is clearly necessary to declare income to the tax office. CloudKeys urges all real estate clients to follow the legal path and pay all legal taxes. It is necessary to consult your accountant for the required procedure, as our company does not provide legal or tax advice and therefore is not specialized in this area.

Clearly. There are many professionals mainly looking for somewhere to stay for 2-3 months or more and it is difficult to find an apartment with an internet connection without having to transfer the utilities to their name.
They are usually journalists in multi-day missions in Athens, Medical tourism, and other cases.
For the “dead” winter months we try to rent your property in such cases with a special agreement regarding the consumption of electricity (which is the main expense).
