Yes all year round licenses are available for the Port... I agree the paperwork is lengthy and the costs high which will definitely have a knock on effect on prices, but never the less we will see many more private rentals becoming available

The tourism ministry has so far granted 122 new holiday rentals licences, which equate some 600 places. Applications for these could be made from 1 August, the previous moratorium on new licences having been lifted.

...
The minister, Bel Busquets, says that 391 DRIATs have been presented since August, but 269 of these have been lacking. They have not included essential information, have not got the consent from residents' communities or have used an outdated DRIAT form.

At the parliamentary tourism committee meeting yesterday, Busquets was asked about progress with the granting of licences by Josep Melią of El Pi, a party which has made clear its general support for holiday rentals. Given Busquets' response, El Pi believe that regulation and requirements are not in line with "reality" and that they mean that people are unable to register.

The minister disputes this, arguing that the law is very clear and that zoning is in order to strike a balance between holiday rentals and the need to guarantee the right to housing. The government, she adds, is not giving a "free pass" to holiday rentals. "Our commitment is to sustainable islands with a quality economy and quality tourism."

Busquets was also asked about the charges for registering new holiday rentals places. She explained that the rates were not determined by the tourism ministry but by the consortium for the stock of accommodation places (of which she is in fact the president). They had been arrived at through "participation and dialogue" with the Council of Majorca and other bodies. Prices had been agreed "by the whole sector".

For standalone properties and hotels, the price is 3,500 euros per place. This is based on the fact, the minister said, that there is an average life of twenty years. For other types of properties - apartments or those which can only be rented out for a maximum of sixty days a year (which can include villas, depending on zones) - there is a five-year limit. The charges are therefore lower - 875 euros for apartments and 291 euros for 60-day properties.

You can go for the full 365 licence as long as your block agree to it, you have your own water and leccy meter and your prepared to stump up the €875/bed.... and a load of other stuff..

It's just in the old town where you can only do the 60 days if you live there...

In Puerto Pollenca you can have the 365 day option. You need the community to agree and have the deed to show such notarised. You will need an up to date Cedula/Habitacion certificate and an energy certificate rated F or better. There is a lot of form filling and taxes to be paid prior to being issued with a license- I now have one and can tell you it is a huge relief...

I wouldn’t dare to rent without, too much of a risk..

I'm sorry for being dim but can you confirm whether the following is a correct statement. In Puerto Pollensa you can do both the 365 day and 60 day options.

Yes, that's correct but the 60 day option only applies if you actually live in the property.

On the original guidance for applications in addition to the documentation you have listed, it stated that apartments must have a separated metered water supply. Is this correct or has it quietly been dropped?

Hi

That is correct, apartments must have their own water meter.

The Foro Vacacional, an organisation dedicated to the promotion of holiday rentals, held a conference on Tuesday. Among those attending were the government's director-general for tourism, Antoni Sansó, the president of the Habtur holiday rentals association, Joan Miralles, and his predecessor, Juan Estarellas, now the CEO of Foro Vacacional.

A headlining revelation from the conference was that 75% of apartments that had once been advertised online as holiday rentals no longer are - some 35,000 properties, it was said. The reason? The fear of being fined. For Sansó, this was evidence of the effectiveness of legislation. It is being complied with.

Despite the legislation, Estarellas produced figures to suggest that there is growth in the Balearics rentals market that averages over two per cent each month. In the past year there has been 16% growth, making the Balearics the Spanish region with the second highest increase. Demand for rentals is growing, he observed, and so are prices - up by 19%.

Legislative restrictions have had a particular impact in Palma, where supply has fallen 40%. This has led to Palma being one of the most expensive European cities for rentals, with an average income of 1,000 euros per month.

I was never much good at maths, so I would be grateful if someone could explain how it is possible to have a 16% increase in rentals when there has been a 75% fall in the number of rental properties available. Need Rachel Riley from Countdown to work this out.

It may be due to the claimed increase being due to an increase in footfall through the airport. More people are coming through the airport but for shorter periods due to the decrease in available rentals and higher prices. Goes to show you can claim anything by selective use of the figures.
