What do you have to know about legal compliance and rental agreement:
A rental agreement is an agreement between owners and guests whereby the owner makes available to the guest the use and enjoyment of a specific property.
There are two types of contract adapted to either rent the entire property for a holiday period or for tourist use: To rent the property on a permanent or regular basis, the contract used is named “regular property rental contract”. To rent only one of the rooms of the dwelling (for a holiday, permanent or seasonal rental), a room rental contract is used.
In this type of holiday rental contract, Guests and owners are protected in case of problems or discrepancies.
It is important to include:
- The personal details of the manager or owner
- The registration number of the accommodation in the corresponding tourist register.
- The date of check-in and check-out.
More and more cities are approving the establishment of a tourist tax, which affects the overnight stay of foreigners and residents. These taxes are normally used for the promotion of tourism or the improvement of goods and buildings. They are established in relation to the type and category of accommodation. In addition, there are numerous exceptions to their application.
