New laws to take note of when renting out a Mallorca holiday home

If you own a property in Mallorca and wish to rent it out as a holiday rental, it is crucial to obtain a tourist rental license from the Balearic government. Failure to do so may result in significant fines.

Balearic Tourism Law and ETV explained

To determine if your rental falls under the Balearic Tourism Law and is considered an ETV (holiday rental property), certain conditions must be met. Renting out your entire home for short periods, typically days or weeks, without exceeding one month, and without demonstrating a purpose other than tourism, will be presumed to be a tourist stay. The use of seasonal rentals subject to LAU as an alternative to tourist rentals will no longer be allowed. If you market your property for immediate use, for short durations of less than a month, and cannot prove that the rental serves a purpose other than tourism, it will be considered a vacation rental activity.

For detached or semi-detached properties in Mallorca, a tourist rental license is required to rent them out to holidaymakers. If your property is not detached or semi-detached, you can still rent it out as a holiday property, but certain conditions must be met.

Rentals should be in conditions of immediate use, and you should not be able to demonstrate a purpose other than tourism. Using seasonal rental subject to the LAU (Spanish Tenancy Act) as an alternative to tourist rental, as has been done in the past, will no longer be allowed. If you market your home for short periods of less than one month, in conditions of immediate use, and cannot prove that the purpose of the rental is different from tourism, it will be considered an activity of vacation rental property.

What types of properties are affected?

If you own a detached property or a semi-detached house in Mallorca and wish to rent it out to holidaymakers, you will be required to obtain a tourist rental license.

If your property is not detached or semi-detached, you can still rent it out as a holiday property, but there are certain conditions that must be fulfilled. Due to the complex nature of the regulations, it is advisable to seek assistance from professionals to ensure compliance with the law. At Balearic Properties, we possess in-depth knowledge of the tourist rental law and would be pleased to assist you in abiding by it.

Understanding the regulations

When will your rental be considered an ETV (Estancia Turística Vacacional) and will the Balearic Tourism Law be applied?

Your rental will be considered an ETV, or a vacation rental property, if you rent the entire home for short periods, typically for days or weeks, without any stay exceeding one (1) month. Additionally, the property should be available for immediate use, and you must not be able to demonstrate any purpose other than tourism. It is important to note that the option to use seasonal rental subject to LAU (Ley de Arrendamientos Urbanos) as an alternative to tourist rental is no longer allowed. If you advertise your home for immediate use, for short periods of less than one (1) month, and you cannot provide evidence that the purpose of the rental is different from tourist use, it will be assumed that your property is being used for vacation rental activity. In such cases, the Balearic Tourism Law will be applied.
