Holiday rentals in Spain

Casa Contenta in search of solution

Many foreign property owners are uncertain about the legal situation concerning possible rentals of their holiday homes here in the south of Spain. To be honest we are as well.

Some of our clients, have been owners of ‘Casas Rurales’ for several years yet face problems with controls of all kinds.

Some of our clients have ‘Viviendas turísticas de alojamiento rural’ (90 days maximum per year) and also face demanding controls. Not always understanding the authorities very well and surprised by their demands makes home owners feel not only confused but sometimes also desperate. The threat of considerable fines for non-compliance doesn’t help. A visit to the “Turismo” head offices seems only to create more confusion.

When Casa Contenta gets involved we take it step by step to find the appropriate solution for the client. We investigate each individual situation, contact the tourist office and mediate for the best solution. We consult lawyers if necessary.

Let’s take the simple case of a home owner who prefers to sublet for simple security reasons rather than leave the house sitting empty while he is away. Whether for long or short-term stays; through agents or through a website, it is not easy for owners to act legally!  We at Casa Contenta have clear ideas of what a property owner needs to consider before starting to sublet.

We wish we could just leave you right here with some guidelines and everything would be fine but unfortunately it’s a bit trickier than that.

However, as we at Casa Contenta say; there is a solution to everything.
