I was delighted to be able to offer news exclusively last week of a new tourism law (see HERE), and now, already, the draft legislation is being reported in the press. There are various aspects to it, including a requirement for hotels to make renovations or risk being fined, and it stresses the Government’s intention to “stamp out” illegal letting in residential property.
It seems it will also require those complexes which are touristic to provide the offer for which they were designed, rather than be changed into residential usage, which seems connected with the issue I reported of facilitating the return of touristic licences to “dormant touristic” complexes. These too, along with the hotels, will apparently be required to upgrade and renovate, with fines applied to those who fail to comply.
