Understanding Spanish holiday rental law

In accordance with the new regulations governing holiday rentals in Andalucia (Decree 28/2016), landlords wishing to publicly advertise their properties (ie: Airbnb, Owners Direct & HomeAway) are now required by law to register with the Junta de Andalucía. Failure to comply with this new landlord legislation can result in fines ranging from approximately €2,000 to upwards of €100,000.

Finest Stay Marbella appreciates that these changes in legislation can be stressful and we are here to assist you with the registration process. Whether you require assistance in updating your property to ensure that it meets the requirements or would like us to complete the application process on your behalf, contact us today to learn more about our services.

In order to register your property, a Spanish application form providing owner, property, notary, land registry and other details must be completed and submitted to the Junta de Andalucía. We understand and appreciate the stress of these new regulations, in particular when you are living abroad and dealing in a foreign language. Finest Stay Marbella can help you with this registration process and have joined forces with a leading local law firm to ensure that we have all of the resources in place.

Over the past 15 years, the directors of Finest Stay Marbella have worked closely with Fontán Zubizarreta Abogados – a well respected law firm based in Marbella with over 30 years experience who specialise in property transactions and taxation for non-residents owning property in Spain.
