Obtaining a holiday rental licence is likely to be more difficult in Andalusia from 22/02/2024. In this article, we discuss the three main changes.
Municipalities can limit the number of rental licences allowed
Local governments can grant a maximum number of rental licences allowed per building, district or region. Initially, mainly cities such as Málaga, Seville and Cadiz will impose restrictions.
