Short-Term Rental News From Spain
The Asociación de Empresarios de Apartamentos Turísticos de Madrid is an association that seeks to protect the short-term rental industry in Madrid. This association was established on April 15, 2013 and currently has 15 members.
What is this association?
The Asociación de Empresarios de Apartamentos Turísticos de Madrid was founded to find a solution to regulate the business model of short-term rentals in Madrid.
The 2 main objectives of the association are:
1: To collaborate in drafting new legislation to regulate short term rentals with the local agencies in Madrid (Comunidad de Madrid, Delegacion de Gobierno, and the City Hall).
2: To defend and protect our members by providing legal assistance.

Changes to short-term rental laws in Spain:
A legislation was recently introduced in the Spanish parliament to regulate vacation rentals. Under this legislation, renters would be required to obtain licenses and conform to the same health, safety, and quality regulations as hotels.
In the coming weeks, the Asociación de Empresarios will be updating us on the developments taking place.
