We have a several properties legally renting as holiday let’s and profiting enormous amounts as luxury properties. They have full capacity of around 8 to 10 people per property and booked all year round. They are constantly using water for showering ect and cost the community extra money for maintenance due to broken locks So Gate repairs. Ect. More expense for pool maintenance would it be legal to charge an extra community fee for these registered companies are rent their properties as a business.

I suppose the community can make democratically any rules and regulations it wishes providing they remain within the Spanish rules of law. However implementing them maybe another matter. If you restricted holiday renters to one shower a week, a substantial bond on the gate key in case of damage, use of the pool on alternative days only and increased the community fees by 100% to these holiday rental owners what would you do with the extra income?

The question raised is very valid.  Our urbanisation is more seasonal, but the renters can be a real nuisance - it's known by many as the "silly season" with a shrug of the shoulders, but I've always thought that owners who rent should contribute more to the running costs of the urbanisation.  

Has a good solution/system been put in place elsewhere?

As a serving President of seven years and a lot of experience of renters. I would love to charge those that rent out their properties more fees as they (renters) cause most of the damage to our five garage doors and five entrance gates into the community, but frankly it is difficult to apply as the owners of these properties say "I only allow my family to use our apartment - often not true), actually identifying these properties is not easy as people are always "coming and going" in our community (84 apartments across three blocks). Recently two renters were evicted by the owners for breaking community rules (i'll not go into that!), the renters then left early in the morning and on their way sparayed all our our exterior community walls with Black spray paint, they also sprayed our exterior intercom system rendering it totally defunct, to compound that issue the insurance company refused to pay out the 4,000 euros worth of damage (mostly on a new intercom) because they claimed it was graphiti !! needless to say we will not be renewing our insurance with them !!

Back to the question/ my answer, we have a "key fob" to enter the community gates and a "mando " to enter the garages, we charge 5 euros each for the entrance fobs and 40 euros for the garage mandos, and who buys most of these ? the rental properties of course, so this is our way of getting some compensation for the community for damage the "rentals" do to our community. I explained this at our community AGM two weeks ago and the owners that attended were very happy with that solution.


To be honest I hate renters (not all) as  they cause more problems and complaints (noise etc) to our community  than any other item, but then when me and the boss go on our holidays - we become renters!!


Can't please everybody you can only try wink
