I have just written a little guide book on Holiday Rental Law in Spain 2013. It is a digital book which means I can easily update it as the law falls into place in the coming year. So I would really appreciate feedback from anybody who has concrete information on the situation, especially from anyone who has been granted a licence or has been refused a licence. I am particularly looking for info on Mallorca and the other Balearics because it is not clear what they are planning.Please, please. please do not use this thread to gripe about how terrible the Spanish government is and please don't just add opinions. I need solid information. Catalonia has a good set of laws in place but I know that Mallorca is messing people around a bit.I am looking for details on the new laws affecting the rental of private villas and apartments for short stay holidays. My guide book has information that is valid now in September 2013 but each autonomous region will introduce new laws this year and I would love to keep up to date.Thanks for all contributions.

Hello there, I am a UK citizen and am soon to be married in England to my Indian partner who is the father of our 9 month old daughter. We would like to come to Spain and live as a family. He has Indian nationality.  Can anyone please tell me their experiences of bringing their non-EU spouse to live in the EU?  we are getting all sorts of mixed messages. One website says we need to do the official family regrouping (reunification) visa, then a lawyer on Ibiza told me he does not need a visa and can enter with his translated marriage certificate. The Europa website also says it CAN  be possible to enter with appropriate docs translated, without a visa, but is difficult and not sure. We don't want to have to go back to India to get him a visa and the family regrouping one is time consuming and expensive.  Any advice would be most appreciated. Thank you!

So they're withdrawing our winter fuel allowance payments to pay for more important things like a brand new railway line that will be redundant before it's even started. Thanks Treasury. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-23065510

Hi all :0) I'm searching for advise about a business plan I have, where I intend to deal with UK based clients, but offer my services in the Balaerics, as a resident.

Hi there, Would anyone be able to recommend where I can get documents translated into Spanish, such as marriage and birth certs? They have to be recognised by the authorities for residency purposes.  Thanks.

Hi there, My partner is Indian and we are applying for a visa for him to come and visit me in Spain. Along with the Official Invitation Letter, they are asking for  "Attested copy of the passport and the DNI or residence card of the person living in Spain". Can anyone clarify what does it mean to be "attested"? Thank you.

With the new certification arrangements coming into force in June (as I understand) does anyone yet have any experience of the process and costs involved ?  Thanks.

We have had it with our bank (for reasons we won't disclose), and would like recommedations for a bank, and ideally a branch of that bank that isn't rude and unhelpful. A bank that doesn't make us feel that they're doing us a favour by having our money, would be lovely.

My bank is driving me crazy! The fees are very high, you have to queue for hours, their online website is unreiable.  Can anyone recommend a bank in Spain where they have had a good experience in branch and via internet banking.  thanks.
