    Hi all

    Ive been reading about the licenses needed for renting a property in Spain, and i know it varies from place to place but are these licenses as bad as some make out or is there still some room for potential rental income in Spain?

    I understand air con and heating is necessary, but im not sure if wifi is also a requirement and what other main issues is one likely to encounter?

    Any advice is welcome, or further reading too

    Hi gwebstech,

    Found some links below on my abogado’s website and also on here as I’ve also been reading up in relation to possible letting. The actual requirements don’t seem that onerous as good holiday rental properties provide most of it anyway, my worry would be how long it takes to actually get ‘approval’ from the Spanish authorities! If you have a place that will also cost a lot to get up to standard eg installing full aircon and the like, I guess longer term letting might be easiest which doesn’t have the same requirements. I think renting for longer than 2 months is not classed as ‘holiday’ letting.

    We could do with some general abogado input here or comments from any rental owners who have successfully registered their properties??

    SOMEONE must have registered a holiday by now? Hope it’s ok to put on links?
