Renting or Letting

4. "Tourist lettings"

A tourist letting is obviously not the letting of a permanent dwelling, and does not come under the law stipulations mentioned above. Instead, several of the autonomous regions have established special laws for tourist lettings. We recommend you find out the exact rules in the region of Spain where you have a property or want to rent an apartment or a house for vacations, to make sure it is done legally. In the following, we refer to the law on tourist letting in the Valencian region, number 30 of 1993, as an example.

According to this law, all owners who rent out apartments or houses for tourist purposes, must be registered with the Dirección General de Turismo in the Valencian government, or any of their local offices. The law contains certain quality requirements for the accommodation and the tourist authorities will make an inspection.

Also, the agencies habitually involved in letting out tourist accommodation must register their activity, and the properties they offer for rent. An owner who offers to rent more than 5 units, is considered an agent and must also register.

If an individual owner let out his apartment or house through an agency, the obligation to register the property for letting purposes rests with the letting agent, not with the owner.
