Thumbs down New Madness On Private Holiday Rentals - From Today's Bulletin

If you want to rent, ask your neighbour first...

- New regulation is expected to be included in the new Tourism Law which is due to be approved this month.

- Owners of chalets and detached properties will have to have written permission from their neighbours.

Palma. - As readers will have seen from letters to the editor this week, people are still confused over the rules and regulations governing renting out properties as holiday homes.

Well, it appears that the situation is going to become even more confusing and tedious.

In accordance with the new controversial Tourism Law, which was initially drafted by the former Minister for Tourism, Carlos Delgado, and is due to be approved later this month, owners of chalets and detached properties wishing to let them out, will have to seek the permission of their neighbour or neighbours in order to do so.

What is more, according to the new law, property owners will have to present the Ministry for Tourism with a document signed by their neighbours as proof that they have been given the all clear to rent their property out.

And, should the neighbours change their mind at any point, then the property can no longer be rented out.

The final draft of the new Tourism Law which has been given to a number of associations, despite many of which are on holiday, to be examined and they have a period of 15 days to lodge any queries or objections.

The law also includes measures to crack down on properties being rented out by the day online as the government sets about regulating the holiday property rental market.

Yep, madness is the word. The state the Spanish economy is in you would think they would be doing the utmost to attract tourist with open arms, not try to make it harder.

You can bet the commercial properties/ hotels ect will not be requiring any ones permission to let their accommodation and will gladly take all those folk that can no longer rent privately. I say this to the folk that set the rules and make the laws, don't push your luck, because if you upset enough people you won't survive on the few stalwarts like me that come back year on year.

The silly thing is that in the peak season they, the Hotels, could not accommodate everyone that would like to come!!
