I thought I saw on TA that spain have made it illegal for foreigners who own property in Mallorca to rent them out and the fines are between 6k and 60k.

Has anyone else heard or know about it?

Wonder what impact that will have on the likes of ownersdirect etc.

Anyone renting a property out has to have a licence, and they are becoming more difficult to obtain
I have heard of people being prosecuted in the Pollenca and Andratx areas
It is the same in England where landlords have to meet certain regulations with regards to gas and electrical installations and
all furniture has to be be fire retardent

I did have a similar discussion last year about rental property in Tenerife, apparently the Spanish government made it illegal for anyone to rent out an apartment in a block unless it had been classed as a touristic property, in other words the apartment block had to meet certain criteria ie fire exits etc before it was allowed to get this touristic tag, some sort of inspectors were going around knocking on doors and fining people for this, someone was worried as they had rented one and thought they would be given the fine, this was not the case at all its only the people that owned the property that could be fined. Dads is this the same in Mallorca.

I think if the government have made it illegal for foreigners who own property in Mallorca to rent them out, then this has been done to protect hotels etc, the only problem I have with this is that hotels will take advantage and put there prices up. Again Dads do you think this is the case or is it only to protect the people that rent them.

I agree from a fire & appliance regulation point, but like you say Daryn, Hotels & Apartments could just be rubbing their hands at this news.

yes, good news on the safety aspect I guess.

All these fines will also provide extra (needed) revenue for the government and it wouldn't impact on the voting public.

Well I can think of one person who might not vote again for the Gov't if they had just got a 60k fine lol

I can see this is great news for the hotels and I have heard that they have a a lot of influence with the council, but I think it's bad news for everyone else. Not everyone wants to stay in a hotel nor a apartment in a " holiday block " , privately owned apartments are in general a lot nicer and with more personal touches. The more people that go self catering means more business for the local restaurants, cafes and supermarkets and they deserve their share as well as the greedy hoteliers!
If people are put off renting out their apartment for fear off a hefty fine this would be a real shame and as for the tourist license they simply do NOT give them out anymore, I have looked into this and found this is the case

Have to agree with the bars, cafe's, restaurants & supermarkets missing out there, that is a good point BC. Looks like more of them will be shutting down from now on.
