During the last years and the arrival of companies like Airbnb in the tourist accommodation and rental market, the local governments of the Autonomous Communities decided to apply the same rules that govern the professional tourist establishments to all the houses destined to the holiday rental.
Therefore, a simple private individual who decides to rent his second home at the time of the year he is not using it must hold a holiday rental licence to carry out this activity.
The characteristics and modalities of obtaining such licences vary according to the Communities in which the properties are located.
It should be noted that renting a home without a this authorisation can lead to sanctions such as fines and it also has tax implications.
In DM Legal & Immobrokers, our professionals in real estate law can help you in applying for and obtaining such a licence as well as in the administrative and tax aspects involved in the rental activity. We have a great knowledge of the operation of these licences in the Costa Blanca where most of our activity lies.
