Eleven illegal villas and holiday flats face fines

The Department of Tourism has set in motion a total of 11 penalty proceedings for renting apartments or villas for tourism purposes between January and November 2014. This figure represents 20% of all inspections that have been made for this purpose (56 in total) and 24% of the disciplinary proceedings that have been initiated in 2014 (46 in total).

All homeowners who want to offer holiday accommodation must register with Turismo, which currently has 1,600 applications registered for this reason.

In any event, it is not permissible to rent out a flat or apartment. This is a violation of the applicable law and fines of up to €400,000 apply to what is viewed as a very serious infringement of ‘Article 106.b of Law 8/2012, of 19 July, Tourism of the Balearic Islands.’
