Meridian Home Watch & Property Management
Our services offer the most comprehensive and professional absentee home management and on-demand services for house or home, town homes, and condos in Eastern Sussex County, Delaware including Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, Lewes and Millsboro.
Many insurance companies have clauses in their policy’s regarding absentee periods over 30 days unless your property is written as a second residence. Should a loss occur this clause allows the insurance company to deny a property claim.
In the event of any problem detected requiring immediate attention you will be notified by phone. We will contact the vendor of your choice, or we can contact a vendor who works with us.
If no problems – an e-mail will be sent after each visit. Click here to read our FAQ page.
