Laws on Renting Out Property in Spain

holiday rental laws spain

One important aspect of the new law on Renting Out Property in Spain:  Law 4/2013 (Measures to Increase Flexibility and Develop the Rental Market) introduced earlier this year, and commented upon in an article on new Spanish rental laws,  has been the exclusion of its application on the holiday rental market. Introduced as an amendment by the Partido Popular, the objective of the amendment is to curtail the level of holiday lets by private individuals, considering it to be unfair competition to hotels and other professionally run establishments.

The hotel industry have lobbied the government considerably on the basis that they consider it to be unfair competition since these private short-term holiday lets do not have to comply with the same regulations, and consequent business costs that their own members face.

Regional Tourism Regulations

Up until 2010 holiday lettings came under the same legislation as lettings in general and were regulated by the Ley Arrendamientos Urbanos (Urban Leasing Act) though this was derogated as a result of the introduction of the European Directive on Services and as a result legal limbo followed. However,  this has now been changed by the new law, Ley 4/2013, which excludes from it’s application private holiday lettings and instead makes them subject to the laws adopted by the regional autonomous communities to regulate tourism accommodation in their areas.

As a result, whereas formerly it would have been enough to have a legally built property with the construction and habitability licenses in place, now, depending on the regional laws, the accommodation may well be subject to any number of regulations such as health and safety, disabled access etc by way of a requirement to apply for a tourism accommodation licence. Here is an example of this type of legislation enacted to regulate tourist rental licences in Spain in this particular case, in Andalucia.

More Stringent Requirements

Accordingly it is necessary for anyone considering letting-out their property for holiday lets (as opposed to long-term lets) that they follow the local tourism regulations with regard to registering their property for such purposes. These vary according to the regional laws applicable, but as an example, in Cataluña, any property owner who wishes to rent-out the property for the purpose of holiday lets must:

  • Inform the town hall of their intention to let out the property to holiday makers,
  • Registration of the property on the relevant tourism registry,
  • Retain the services of a company for the purposes of property maintenance,
  • Make the property available for public inspection,
  • Provision of complaints forms,
  • Maintain an updated list of occupants to provide the police with as necessary.

Failure to comply with these requirements can lead (of course) to the imposition of financial penalties. In addition anyone considering letting their property would need to obtain a certificate of energy consumption, further driving-up the costs of this commercial enterprise. If you are considering letting your property to holiday makers you should get advice from lawyers with experience assisting English-speakers making an application for a tourist rental licence in Spain.

    We had some serious challenges in the beginning with the first apartment we wanted to buy and Beatriz went more than all the way to help - we felt so secure in her hands, and still do.


    We will continue to use her service and promote her to anyone who needs a lawyer.


    Beatriz was recommended to us by a very good (Danish) friend in Spain and was he right :-) So we give her our best recommendation.

    Meeting and appointing Rosa was like a breath of fresh air. Having used several other lawyers in Palma de Mallorca without any success whatsoever, Rosa stepped in to a complicated case in its 7th year and turned it around almost overnight.

    Within months the ball was rolling again and she finalised the case where others had just given up. Rosa always responded to my emails and phone calls and was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

    I will not be using anyone else from now on.

    Understanding Spanish law regarding buying and selling properties is a minefield for English speakers. Cristina provided the legal expertise, the translation of legal documents, explanations for all issues, and solutions for our challenges.


    Also, she provides confidence and reassurance that what we are doing is in our best interests and within the law - very important when working in a foreign country.


    In summary, she is an excellent professional that we are so pleased we found and will continue to use for all our legal matters.


    I think you have a perfect solution for supporting people abroad. I was lucky to find you on the internet. Perhaps you could promote your services to all estate agents abroad, so more people can get access to your service when buying or selling abroad.

    Overall it was great. Rosa always answered all questions asked and provided clear, concise and well explained answers.


    When there was a delay in responding she did offer an apology which was appreciated. Rosa always instilled a sense of confidence that she knew exactly what was going on, what I was asking, and what the applicable law was.


    When not a Spanish local and dealing with her remotely, this provided great comfort in a sensitive matter.

    Juan was extremely helpful during every part of the purchase. As I was buying an older property there were slight complications but Juan explained every issue and managed to work through the difficulties with supreme efficiency.


    Also there was a ridiculous situation with my Spanish bank account where I could not access the money even though it was in the account. Thankfully I had given Juan power of attorney and he managed to sort-out the problem.


    He went above and beyond the call of duty and I am very grateful for all his help. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Almeria region.
