    Hi, I have a detached house in a small village (less than 2000 inhabitants) in Orsona, Catalonia. A previous article in this forum (May 2016) stated that detached houses offering no hotel services (except cleaning) do not need to register for a H.U.T. to use the property for short term holiday rentals (1 or 2 weeks at a time). The local Ajuntament is telling me I do need a H.U.T.

    I would much prefer to avoid the hassle of a H.U.T. What can I do to be sure about this?

    Hi,

    I do think you need a license also for a detached house. There is quiet good information listed on this official site from the Generalitat:

    http://empresa.gencat.cat/en/treb_departament/treb_preguntes_i_respostes/emo_turisme/emo_habitatges/index.html

    Also consider that its an advantage to have this license when you will sell the house one day.

    My advice would be just go ahead and let it out as you want. It is none of the Council´s business what you do with your own home.
