Excellent Eleonor,
This is exactly the picture that I am seeing if these threats continue.Puerto Pollensa could become a ghost town with very many abandoned properties. Those people living in communities will have massive problems as people will stop paying the community fees resulting in lack of communal services such as lifts, pool cleaning, garden maintenence etc. or increased fees for those clients living in the building.
I can report that the inspectors returned to the same villa in El Vila just 2 weeks ago and requested all the same information from my clients.
These clients said they were very pleasant and did speak English. I have a copy of the form that was completed for Hacienda requesting how much was paid and where the money was paid, whether electric or gas was included in the rental charge, whether they had been to the property before and where they found the property advertised.
Regarding the rental of apartments, it all seems to have gone quiet at the moment which is sometimes more worrying.

I think apartment owners are just holding their breath at the moment hoping it will all go away and that this is not the lull before the storm.
What I don't understand is the focus on this villa, as the only obstacle to being legal is the reluctance to issue a permit to a property that seems to qualify.
Most apartments unfortunately are not in this position.

I would guess that the authorities here are treating this in the same way as they treat foreign registered cars ie. they first go after the ones that will generate the most revenue.

A little more background by Andrew today;

alcudiapollensa: Holiday Rentals: Now they go international

This has been posted on FB by Andrew Ede.


Residential tourism (aka also holiday lets and private apartments for tourist rental) ... Kate Mentink for Europeos por Espaņa has confirmed that a debate on this will take place on 10 December at the Club Diario de Mallorca (at the Diario's building on the Llevant industrial estate in Palma) between 6.30pm and 8.00pm. I shall be taking part. The director-general of tourism for the Balearics, Jaime Martinez, will also be participating, as will Alvaro Middelmann, ex-president of the Mallorca Tourist Board. Hopefully, it should be enlightening. By the way, it will be in English. Please ask Kate for any more details.

Just a bit more on this. Kate has asked that for this Europeos por Espaņa event, in order for them to get an idea of numbers, could anyone planning on attending advise them at EporE.baleares@gmail.com. Thanks.

Yet another piece of excellent writing from Andrew. Thanks for attending the meeting Andrew and reporting back. If this wasn't sucha serious matter it would be laughable! I really believe Spain must be on it's own death wish!

So as Mark says - nothing has changed and next year will see a challenge to beat Big Brother!

And today a wishy washy piece of reporting in the Mail

Brits with holiday homes in Spain and France may be banned from renting them out to tourists | Mail Online

Pretty sure the Mail's got this wrong as it is referring to legislation (that through the reform of the tenancy act) that has already been passed.

That's what i thought Andrew ;).
