Reply To: Barcelona – rental contract extension questions

Mark Stücklin

Hi HG,

I’m no expert in rental contracts that are best left to lawyers. That said, as far as I know and based on personal experience rental contracts in Barcelona are for three years but tenants have the right to insist on a two year extension if they want, or at least that’s a clause I have seen in a recent contract and had it confirmed by my lawyer. I’ll check this and point two with my lawyer when he gets back from holiday at the end of August. If you want a quicker answer I suggest you consult a lawyer, if you can find one at work in August.
