Hello everyone, today Beahost.net would like to give you all the information you need to register your vacation rental if you have a property in South of Spain, especially in the community of Andalucia. In fact, since May 2016 is mandatory to register your apartment if it is a short let renting.
We found out there is a lot of confusion regarding listing your property on platforms like Airbnb, Wimdu, Niumba, HomeAway, Booking.com and respect the local law. Many city halls and regions are working together on new legislations to regulate this new massive tourist rental business. Actually, things are not so bad in Andalucia. Renting on Airbnb or others platforms is totally legal, but you need to respect the local law and register your space on RTA (Registro de Turismo de Andalucia).
So, here are some important requirements you need to have in order to register your property. For example, only properties with air conditioning and heating systems are allowed depending on the period of the renting. You need to provide professional cleanliness at the end of every stay, also offer fresh bed linens and towels and give a contact number to your guests in order to solve issues they might have.
Be registered on RTA is mandatory and if the municipality gets you without a license the fee could be up to 18.000 Euro. We know that bureaucracy is not that easy so, here at Beahost, we offer you FREE COUNSELS on Spanish legislation. We give you all the advice you need in order to be okay with the law and we offer you our services from listing management to cleanliness and welcoming guests. Feel free to contact us we are to help you make the most of your property!
