There have been rumours of fines being issued in the Los Gigantes and Puerto Santiago area
for Holiday Letting without the proper licences and management.
Does anyone know anything about this?
What are the fines for renting holiday apartments to tourists illegally?
The following scale of fines is imposed for the illegal renting of holiday apartments:
For minor offences, up to 1,500?.
For serious offences: between 1,500 and 30,000?.
For very serious offences: between 30,000 and 300,000?.
Very serious offences for tourist activity are those where:
Holiday apartments are being let to tourists by anyone who has not registered with the General Registry of Tourist Companies, activities and establishments or who does not hold the compulsory licences and permits for the undertaking of tourist activities as regulated by the Law for the Regulation of Tourism.
It appears that the last fine can also be made against the Community as a whole.
