LAST summer, the island of Mallorca made headlines around the world for all the wrong reasons.
As Spain and its tourism industry celebrated breaking record levels of tourists, at a local level, residents decided that the situation had become intolerable and was negatively impacting their way of life with a type of tourism gentrification that is forcing residents out of the central city properties which were being offered for rent in the more lucrative short-term rental market, than the long-term one.
As a result, the local government has introduced and implemented several new laws to limit tourism and resolve the problem of “over tourism” on the Balearic Islands, with further proposed measures. These changes impact both the hotel industry as well as self-catering accommodation, which represent 84.2% and 15.4% of tourism to the islands, respectively.
To help holiday rental owners and agents, Airbnb hosts and property investors navigate the latest legal changes affecting holiday rental properties in the Balearic Islands a FREE webinar has been announced.
The 30-minute presentation, followed by a 15-minute question and answer session, is aimed at holiday rental property owners, holiday rental agents, Airbnb hosts and property investors in the Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera.
Organised by Spain-Holiday.com, the webinar will take place on Thursday, March 22 at 12:00 CET.
Topics to be covered will include:
- Current legal requirements for holiday rental properties
- Tourist rezoning areas
- Tax and insurance obligations
