Touristic Licence in Andalucía, 2024. Things You Need to Know

Are you planning to rent out your property for holiday accommodation in Andalucía?  Then read on…!

Lots has changed in the last few months and in order to be granted the all-important touristic licence, you may have to bring your property ‘up-to-scratch’, so to speak, and comply with the new rules which have been issued by the JUNTA DE ANALUCIA (the board of control for everything in the Andalucía area).

The regulations are to improve and maintain the quality of holiday accommodation ensuring that visitors have the best possible experience while staying in the area.

Requirements may vary slightly but these are some of the basic points

Reading through the guidelines from the BOJA (bulletin official) on the 02.02.2024, many items on the list are normal basic items. Depending on the key rating of the property, requirements may vary slightly but these are some of the basic points that we have compiled to help our customers at Yorkshire Linen Beds and More in Málaga, Spain to start preparing a property for the licence.

These bullet points have been taken from the BOJA (bulletin official Junta de Andalucía, version 02.02.2024).

Note: This is a rough guide to items required by the touristic licence in Andalucía on one-key and two-key properties and does not take into account the minimum sizes of living and sleeping areas or the requirement of any other paperwork or occupation licences.  These need to be checked with a lawyer or professional.

ALL Properties Need the Following

  • A complaints book and a notice informing clients of its availability.
  • Information for using the electrical items, air con and TV systems, etc.
  • Information and rules of the community of properties including regulations on animals, noise, smoking, rubbish disposal, etc.
  • A reception who will provide the keys to the property, a key holder who can be contacted 24 hours a day in case of delayed arrival or a system in which to access the keys automatically.
  • Cleaning – One-key properties must be fully cleaned for new clients arrival. Two-key properties (and higher) must offer an extra top-up clean once a week with included in the price. Kitchen utensils, etc. are exempt from this top up clean.
  • Fresh bedlinen and towels in one-key properties with a change once a week. If a one-week stay, only the bedding on the bed and towels provided for each guest on arrival.  If a two-week stay, then a changeover set is required for each guest. Two-key properties require fresh linen for all of the guests to be provided for changing during the week. This can also be left as sets for the clients to change over themselves as they see fit.
