Re: Re: Renting for more than 11 months a year

I’m told that, in Spain, renting for more than 11 months of a year means that you can get the rent reduced by the local council. So I gather that most expat owners wishing to let their properties impose the 11 month limit on tenants to avoid this.

Is this the case in all provinces?

If so, how does one find a rental that can be had for more than 11 months?

Thanks in advance

Excuse my ignorance but what would a council have to do with a privately owned property? The reason to the best of my knowledge is that the tenant gains more rights to the property if the contract is longer than 11 months – and can be harder to evict a tenant -though the law has changed in recent months on this.
