Long-term rentals for landlords in Spain

One of the best ways of ensuring a steady income from your home in Spain is to let it to long-term tenants, i.e. for over six months at a time. In many parts of Spain, particularly in resort areas and in large cities, there’s an acute shortage of rental accommodation and as a result, long-term lets are in short supply.

However, as a landlord you need to understand rental legislation in Spain, particularly the rental contract and conditions to ensure your interests and property are protected. At Costaluz Lawyers, we provide expert advice on the following aspects of letting property long-term:

  • Rental contracts – drafting and negotiating.
  • Rental taxes and accounts – preparing and submitting quarterly and annual returns on your behalf.
  • Rental advice – advising on long-term rentals generally and vetting potential tenants.
