I am interested in talking to anyone with experience of being a landlord in Spain, renting out a property short term or long term. I want to discuss problems and key success factors, good and bad experiences. Please PM me if you have any relevant experience.

Anyway, I’ve had a few responses, so I think I’m okay for now. But if you have an extraordinary story to tell as a landlord in Spain I’m always interested. Just PM me.

But doesn’t stop them returning when it’s rented out! If this is used in your article I’d appreciate a link to my site!!!
