short term period, you must have done your research. And you
would have realized that it’s not actually easy to rent homes for
short term period in Spain. This would be mainly because no
proper information is given anywhere which gives precise steps
on what needs to be done in case you want to rent your home for
short term periods.
Back in 2011, Barcelona brought a law to control the private
residential properties. Soon it spread to all the Costas with active
backing of Hotel Industry which saw private properties as a big
competition and threat to their business.
So if you are home owner looking to rent your property, first,
register your property to the ministry responsible for Tourism.
You need to submit a statement to the ministry and once
submitted, the property can be rented out with immediate effect.
The minimum contents of statement will include Property details
including cadastral reference and maximum capacity as per
license of occupation, and the information about property owner
including contact address for notification. The ministry will
provide a unique property number which is to be used for all
further communication with the officials.
A lot of property owners have taken help from Property
work. But it is to be noted that the Homeowner is considered to
be legally accountable to the administration and holidaymakers,
unless otherwise stated.
So the question is How do you organise the process of renting,
pricing, and handling the reservations? If you have contracted all
paper work to some property management company, are they
complying with the law?
As per law, Home Owners are required to submit the Guest
details to policia in their portal within 24 hours and also keep a
printed copy of each guest details for at least 3 years from the
date of arrival. The guest details are to be kept are in specific
format as mentioned in law below
property and related information. Once information is added,
Home Owners can start adding guest parties to whom they are
renting out their villas. Home Owners can send customized
Rental Agreement to one of the guests (Primary Guest) to have it
digitally signed before arrival of guests. Home Owners can invite
their guests to fill up their details which will be visible once
Guests fill up the details and submit. The valuable part for home
owners is that they have all details ready even before the actual
arrival of guests. When guests arrive, the homeowner can verify
the details of arrived guests and generate the pdf of each guest.
The generated pdfs are in same format as required by the law
and home owners only need to print it and store it in their files.
Once guests are verified, the platform creates a unique data-file
which can be directly uploaded to policia portal.
