Back to the subject of illegal apartment renting. I understand that changes may be coming into place from April. Is anyone aware of what those changes might be? I read on a Facebook group that it is going to be made even harder to rent out apartments and no licences would be issued to anything but detached villas. I believe that to already be the case. Any updates would be useful.

That's and old article. Don't think much has changed! Villas can get licence but apartments can't. Illegal for an apartment to rent for short term holiday lets.
The Facebook group referred to changes going forward at government level for the Balearics. I can't find the post now but it did say it will make things more difficult for apartment renting. I will try to find it. Maybe it was yet another scare story!

Selfishly, I'm concerned about the apartment we have (holiday) rented over the last 15 years. Is there a likelihood the owner will have to stop renting?

Or there again, have I completely got the wrong end of the stick?

Probably......

After reading these posts I am very concerned for PP tourism is it's life blood. My wife and I have been renting apartments for more than 30 yrs in PP. We are a retired couple who would not like to be thrown out of an apartment because the owner was renting illegally. We will follow things as they progress but I feel that it may be time to look for a new holiday destination!

Don't worry P&C, tourism is the lifeblood of PP, and private rentals are the lifeblood of tourism in PP, it will continue

HI sws
Totally agree with you, it just needs to be clarified by the council quickly, as all the speculation of fines is not helping the situation.

sorry but illegal is illegal!!!

Renting an apartment unless in a designated area is illegal!!! That means you should not do it! Full stop! Quite easy to understand! Rent and you could be fined! Nothing else is relevant!

Don't be so ridiculous! I'm just fed up with those thinking they are above the law and think they are experts on everything. If it is illegal to rent an apartment then that is that! Seems Rebel that you are attempting to live up to your name! This is a friendly site but I'm afraid your comments in my direction on a few of my posts are attempting to provoke! So I reverse the question and ask what's your problem?

OK guys i think this is getting personal now .

At the moment there are changes planned in the law by the Balearic government but i have also read that the national government are to review the situation so until we have any legal facts i think we should hold fire.

Hi Sparky
I'm sorry it might be in the name (rebel) but the port is first.
You are right on the hold fire, this thread should be removed as I feel this type of thread on illegal renting must not rent you'll get fined from Facebook pages is not informative it's just speculation what might be I know nobody that has been fined in the port and feel this can only add to people not booking holidays and adding a negative situation on the port.
