renting holiday accom in mallorca. Legal or not?1 Replies
There is so much conflicting info regarding the issue of renting holiday apartments/villas in Mallorca. I have read articles in the Daily Bulletin in which it is said the authorities are going to come down on those who do, with fines as much as 4,000 euros per bed. I believe to legalise the activity one needs a tourist license which is all but impossible to acquire. My lawyer claims that as long as no other activity such as provifding food or daily cleaning is given, it is legal. Of course there are so many web sites offering accom in Mallorca, it wouldn't be hard for the authorities to find the owners, but, it seems completely illogical that the authorities would cut the source of much needed clientele to the local bars and restaurants when the all inclusive hotel offers are killing them. Can anyone help me with more info on this.
