Tourist Licence requirements – Laws regarding the offer of holiday rental properties in Spain have been in place for a number of years. In recent times, the authorities have started to clamp down on this popular activity. If you are offering a property for rent, then you need to comply with the rules and obtain a tourist licence.
Failure to comply with the new laws regarding illegal tourist properties may result in substantial fines. This depends on how serious the infraction is. If someone is letting out an apartment for holidays without it being
recorded in the registry. Then a sanctioning file is initiated. You could be charged many thousands of euros!
Also owners without a licence have to immediately stop offering the property for letting. You may also be breaching safety, health and hygiene regulations without realising. Which could result in more fines for you.
All property adverts MUST always display the tourist reference number to comply with the Tourist Licence requirements.
