The law in Spain has Changed.

From May 2016 all RENTAL PROPERTY owners renting out their properties must register with the Government.

Decree 28/2016, requires all holiday rentalproperty owners including property management companies on the Costa del Sol to register all properties that are rented for a period of less than 2 months at a time, with the Andalucian Tourist Registry.

Failure to do so can result in a fine between €6000 & €150,000 euro, embargos and costs.

Certain regulations and requirements relating to rental properties apply such as sufficient bedding, provision of an Invoice, Local guide book etc.

The properties, when registered and inspected are issued with a VFT number which must be shown on all advertising of the rental property. On line and off.
