Holiday resorts’ anger at UK lawyers who encourage tourists to sue hotels

26 September, 2016 by SpainHouses.net

Hoteliers’ associations in Benidorm and Gran Canaria have complained about “clear abuse” by British law firms who approach holidaymakers promising “to get them their money back for their Benidormholidays” on a “no win, no fee” basis.

According to reports over the summer, mobile ‘help centres’ have appeared in areas popular with UK tourists that encourage them to make compensation claims for complaints such as sickness or poor quality.

European package holiday legislation makes tour operators responsible for compensating passengers if anything goes wrong on holiday, however these amounts are normally taken off the money paid to hoteliers as part of their contract.

Are property owners complying with the new holiday rentals legislation?

19 September, 2016 by SpainHouses.net

The regional government’s new legislation concerning holiday rentals states that owners who are renting their properties to tourists are now obliged to register the property with the Andalusian Holiday rental home in Marbella tourist registry.

The Junta de Andalucía estimates that around 80,000 private homes with some 400,000 beds are offered as tourist rentals in the region, and this new law is intended to bring to light illegal practices and unfair competition.

The legislation has received the thumbs-up from the local hotel sector, but some property owners claim they have been forced to stop offering their properties for short-term rentals, because they simply cannot afford to comply with the conditions.

Owners who fail to comply with the new regulations could face fines of up to €150,000 and they could also have their properties removed from the registry, but are the proprietors of potential holiday apartments complying with these new rules?

The ongoing love affair between Kuwait and Marbella

12 September, 2016 by SpainHouses.net

Ever since the late King Fahd decided to build a complex of five palaces and a number of mansions on the exclusive Golden Mile during the 1980s, Marbella’s image has been associated with the Marbellaexcesses of the Saudis.

Fahd’s building spree followed a successful visit to the ritzy Incosol Hotel In 1979 when he was still Crown Prince, prompting him to choose this corner of Andalusia over the South of France for his summer residence.

But while his presence and that of his extraordinarily extravagant entourage might have made the biggest splash, his Kuwaiti neighbors had already blazed the trail, investing their petrodollars in property and starting a love affair with Marbella that has lasted 40 years.
