We are pleased to say that one year since this legislation came into effect many of our clients are now receiving registration numbers issued by the Junta de Andalucia for Holiday Rental properties. The registration document provides a VFT number (Viviendas con Fines Turísticos) and lists documents that must be available if there is an inspection. Once the VFT number has been issued registering the details of guests with the Guardia Civil is an obligation. We are providing our clients with information on all aspects of the rental of Holiday properties as well as supplying model contracts and advising on registration with the Guardia Civil. The Junta is now commencing inspections and in accordance with the law they can impose sanctions for failure to comply. One issue that is not yet resolved is that of Occupation licences from the Town Halls. Unfortunately the picture varies with some Town Halls being proactive in issuing licences and others not responding to requests even in areas where IBI has been paid for many years and the properties were built many years ago.
