Tourist licence - Registration of Holiday Homes (only Andalusia)


Following new regulation, the region of Andalusia requires as from 2016 that all urban properties offered as short-term holiday rentals are registered in a Tourism Registry (ATR). We can apply and attain on your behalf a tourist rental licence in the region of Andalusia. A specific POA is required.


In addition, all rural properties offered as holiday accommodation should also be registered following this same procedure.


Humongous fines are levied on non-compliance. Fast, simple tourist registration through us.
