The Balearic Islands

Regulation

Requirements and registration procedure

The Gobierno Balear regulates tourist lets (Viviendas Turísticas) and requires that they appear in the corresponding register for tourist businesses, activities and establishments for each island (registro insular de empresas, actividades y establecimientos turísticos) and that the identification number of the Register is shown in the advertisement for the accommodation. To register your tourist accommodation, you must present an affidavit and ensure that the property complies with a series of requirements:

– the marketing of the property for tourism purposes must not be otherwise prohibited by the statutes of the community of homeowners.
– the property must have an Energy Performance Certificate.
– it should be loacted in one of the specific areas declared suitable for that express purpose by the Consejo Insular, the governing body for that particular island.
– you need to have a valid certificate of occupancy (cédula de habitabilidad).
– the property can only be rented as a whole unit, and not room by room.
– there must be a sign that identifies the property as a tourist rental.
– you need to provide a contact number and 24hr emergency telephone helpline for both guests in the property and the homeowner’s association of the building.

To ensure that you meet all these requirements you can consult this guide from the Govern. You can also register the beginning of tourist activity from this page (in Spanish). Finally, you can go to the Dirección General de Turismo.
