Long term rentals or vacation rentals in Mallorca

Anyone who already owns a property in Majorca and toying with the idea, let them, should, however, only one deal with the Mallorcan tenancy. Basically, in the area of rental housing, the Spanish rental law, the Ley de arrendamientos Urbanos (LAU). It aims to regulate the usual longer-term rentals for the purpose of sustainable use of the property as a residence. However, the LAU opened in certain individual cases the possibility of a short-term rental, for example if the tenant is for a short working visit to Mallorca.

As a rule, German property owners but are more interested in the lucrative short-term tourist rentals, for which a special permit is required (ETV). An estate without a license to rent can be punished by a fine of up to 300,000 euros. Lately, more and more illegal rentals were discovered by the inspectors of the Tourism Authority. And the possibilities of a new start are limited: A new license is issued in Mallorca is currently only for houses with pool, whose land is classified as urban.

However, the purchase of a rental license is not impossible. At Mallorca regular course is set against the rental market for growth. The rents rise slowly and moderately, which suggests that it will continue to provide stability and a good development.
