Region-by-region update on Spain’s holiday rental law

10 Nov 2015

EDITOR’S NOTE: Many people buy a second home in Spain with the idea of renting it out when they are not using it, but are confused by the patchwork of regional regulations governing short-term rentals to tourists. Rental-expert Louise Brace makes it easier to understand what is going on with this summary of the latest situation in each region.

This summer saw the highest recorded number of holidaymakers visiting Spain’s top tourist destinations and increasingly, they’re choosing holiday rentals as their accommodation of choice. In fact, according to research by TripAdvisor, Spain is now the most popular European destination for holiday rental holidays.

It’s been three years since the Spanish government excluded holiday rentals from the LAU (Ley Arrendamientos Urbano) and delegated the task of regulating the industry to its 17 regional governments. Still only 11 of the 17 autonomous communities have published a decree to regulate holiday rentals. Find out the latest status in your region.
