    Lost touch with the illegal lettings issue, so what's the story now...

    Sites like Oweners Direct were full of private apartments to let at one time then all the owners removed them from the sites due to fines being dished out, giving whatever this new ruling is, will they start reappearing again...

    Done a bit searching around,found this posted April this year by murph on the Tenerife Forums Illegal Lettings thread, it's a translation of court case...


    Basic Translation 

    The owners and managers of holiday homes have obtained a first victory in the battle that faces them to the Government of the Canary Islands and the hotel management. The High Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) has annulled several articles of the decree that regulates this activity - approved in the final measures of the last legislature and which Parliament has urged to review - including the exclusion of houses located in areas Tourist, a prohibition that leaves out of the law about half of the real estate dedicated to the holiday rental.

    "The regulation clearly infringes the freedom of business and freedom to provide services, limiting the tourist offer without sufficient justification," the magistrates of the regional court, in line with the arguments put forward by the Spanish Federation of Associations of Housing for Tourist Use And Tourist Apartments (Fevitur) and the National Commission of Markets and Competition.

    According to the TSJC, "it does not make sense that the offer of holiday homes should be excluded from those areas where tourism should be located preferentially." Judges even venture into what motives may hide behind this measure. In his opinion, "the only plausible explanation for this cut-off is that this is to favor the supply of traditional tourist accommodation products", which are located mostly in these areas. The higher court concludes that, in this way, free competition in the provision of services is violated.

    The ruling questions the principle of separation of uses advocated by the Government and hotel entrepreneurs in remembering that tourist areas can be established on territories with residential uses. "The specialization of uses according to areas that try to promote the different laws in tourism is nothing more than an aspiration, but it is far from being a reality," said the magistrates.

    The article prohibiting the rental of rooms is also challenged. According to the TSJC, "there is no reason to require a client who only wants to hire a room to stay that assumes the cost of renting the entire home."

    The court annuls, finally, the obligation to the owners to wait a period of 15 days after formalizing the declaration responsible to start the activity.

    In contrast, the TSJC dismisses the challenge of the obligation to install a badge in the property and to have a minimum equipment, as well as the regulation of advertising and information.

    Bit confused, above article and one below differ somewhat...

    It appears that other Spanish regions are now looking to ban illegal letting - see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] article about Mallorca from the BBC website
