Tourism Galicia presents to the sector the new regulations Housing Tourism Use

The Axencia Tourism Galicia is carrying out a task of the sector information regarding the rules that will regulate the Housing Tourism Use and expected to be adopted after the summer. After the meeting held last week in Sanxenxo, this week was the turn of Lugo yesterday and A Coruña tomorrow, Wednesday, as part of a series of meetings that will continue the next few days in Santiago de Compostela on May 11 in Baiona May 12 and in Vigo and the region of Salnés date yet to be determined.

The objective of these briefings is publicize the innovations that are intended to introduce with the approval of this decree. The main novelty is the need to carry out a simple registration in a public register. This regulation affects a home let for short periods (less than 30 days), keeping regulation by the Urban Leases Act, in other cases. In any case the entry into force is planned for after the summer season 2016.
Through these calls from Galicia Tourism it is to reach all stakeholders and entities representing the sector to engage in dynamic sessions that may consider the issues and concerns arising from its future application. Both Sanxenxo as the Mariña, held in Burela were directed by the director of Competitiveness of Tourism Galicia, José Luis Maestro, and was attended by representatives of the hospitality industry as well as interested individuals.

It should be noted also that the new decree, in which Housing Tourist regulated, apartmentss and this new category of homes for tourist use is given by the combination of two factors: firstly tourist rental became a regional competition after modification of the state Tenancies Act.

On the other hand, the emergence of new technologies in the rental of holiday homes and the tendency to allocate the east end residence make it necessary to adapt to the new reality to provide legal certainty to both individuals and the industry to a new type of tourist accommodation. The new standard will eradicate these practices related issues in the economic-social, fiscal and taxation field and as for the security and safety of users, quality of supply, the intrusiveness or unfair competition.

Currently, in Spain there are only five autonomous regions have in force legislation like this: Catalonia, Madrid, Aragon, the Canary Islands and Andalusia. Galicia has already submitted its proposal to public information and incorporated the allegations and timely suggestions, currently being in the final phase, which is releasing the sector prior to approval.
