Long & Short Term Rentals

Whether you are considering renting a property in Spain or wishing to lease your own property, in both cases, I recommend that you consult with a specialist lawyer in the field.

The reason for this is that the legislation governing residential leases is constantly under review, and you must be vigilant about the legal durations of contracts and the rights and obligations of each party, as they are regularly revised.

Furthermore, there is a common confusion regarding the distinction between long-term and short-term residential rentals, which are colloquially referred to as such but, legally speaking, this terminology is not accurate.

The spirit with which you intend to rent the property will govern the relationships with your tenant.

In Spain, residential leases are regulated by the Urban Leases Law (Ley de Arrendamientos Urbanos: LAU).
