The new regulation on holiday rentals on the Costa del Sol & Andalusia will come into effect on 12 May 2016.
Pursuant thereto, owners who rent their properties for short-term lets will have to register their property with the tourist board. In addition, the new regulation sets out a list of requirements, such as the need for apartments to have air conditioning, first-aid kit, etc.
Any owners who let their Spanish property over the holidays (or advertise online) are strongly advised to contact us to clarify any queries and commence the registration process ASAP. Unfortunately, there is a sense of urgency because the process can take up to 3 months and penalties will apply if an unregistered property is let or advertised after 12 May.
