The latest local, national, and international news regarding Short Term Rentals
The next time you book a holiday apartment in Barcelona you may wake up to find an inspector standing at the end of the bed. Amid growing evidence that the massive upsurge in tourist apartments is driving rents up and residents out, the city has launched a crackdown on illegal, unlicensed apartments
“Our attitude is zero tolerance. We will do everything we can to guarantee the right to housing in the city,” Sanz said. “What these people have to understand is that Barcelona exists for its people. The priority is it’s a place to live.”
