The Government of Valencia has opened a file against platforms offering holiday lettings
28 Mar. 2016
The Tourism Office of Valencia has opened 24 sanctioning procedures against 8 platforms offering holiday lettings on Internet (HomeAway, Niumba, Mil Anuncios, AirBnb, Booking, Onlyapartments, Fotocasa and Muchosol), due to the lack of the landlord´s registration reference in the advertisements. Penalties could go up to 90.000 euros.
Valencia amended the legislation in January 2015, stating that it is compulsory for all tourist accommodation establishments to register their properties and obtain a reference number that must be included in all advertising.
