Do I need a license to rent out my property?
Yes, as long as the property is used for vacation rentals. In fact, without a Spanish tourist license you cannot legally rent houses in Spain. In addition, it will be necessary to register your establishment in the Tourism Registry of the corresponding Autonomous Community.
If you do not have a license to rent a property, this activity will be considered illegal. This means that you risk being sanctioned and, in addition, both your guests and you will find yourself in a situation of legal helplessness.
