Hello,

I am getting concerned about this clause in the Lifetime Package that states they will only manage your property for you if you buy a furniture pack from them. Are the Studio packs affordable? I only ask because I can't afford silly prices for their furniture packs and would like MRI to manage my property for me.

Also, has anyone enquired yet as to how optimistic they are about rental prospects?

Regards,

Zandra

Zandra I know that Baz has bought a studio pack for his apt.

As far as rental goes I think your best bet is to try and get some friends to rent off you or advertise locally. I think MRI still will manage it (but you have to buy furniture). The studio packs are good quality from what I have seen.

I am still waiting answers from MRI regarding studio furniture packs for Aspen Suites. There is no wardrobe on the furniture list, Barrie in aftersales presumed all apartments had them built-in - NEWS TO ME! Still awaiting an answer on that.
Thought I was getting a fridge included with the kitchen but no that is now on the furniture list along with a washing machine as MRI are not sure that the laundry facility will be provided in Aspen Golf. Everytime things get added on the list the cost goes UP.
Barrie also informed me that the prices for the furniture packs are due to up by 500 euros at the end of the month.

Seems like everybody in MRI has something different to tell us about the furniture packs - it is worrying that there does not seem to be uniformity regarding this !

Baz, I understand that you have purchased a studio furniture pack from MRI. Did you just buy the standard pack or did you make alterations to it?

Did it have a wardrobe on the list?
Did you opt for sofa beds or normal beds?
Will your studio sleep up to 4 people?

Sorry for all the questions but I am in a bit of a muddle as to what I want and what will fit in my apartment. I want it to be rented out, even though it is a small studio I intend for it to sleep 4 (2 adults+2 children) using 2 single beds and a sofa bed.

MRI said that a wardrobe would take up space but would add one on at a price...........surely people renting would expect a wordrobe! They also think that a TV unit is needed! Why can't the TV just sit on a set of drawers....

Is anyone on the same wave length as me?

Thanks Baz,

There isn't a bed on your list did you pay extra? My list is the same and I noticed that it only contains 2 pillows, the cutlery/china and bed linen is only for 2 people. OK you could probably get away with the china and cutlery for 4 people, but the bed linen is only for 2 as there needs to be 1 set spare for change over day. (wishful thinking for back to back rentals)

Yep - I think that was the templiar Chris. Apparently they customise their furniture packs for each development.

Thanks

Hey all,

Just regarding the furniture packages, does anybody know if they come with an oven/cooker/hob at all? Are these already included with the apartments?

Cheers Gary.
