How are the rentals market on the Costa del Sol?
Vacation rentals, whether for days or weeks, are currently prohibited according to the State Official Newsletter that was issued on March 19, 2020. Although this measure was announced in advance, some reckless people have done business until the last minute.
In this configuration, the tenants could not be kicked out and therefore, they were allowed to stay until the end of their lease contract. Once this happens, the property will be closed until this state of emergency is over.
Conversely, long-term rentals longer than 3 months are allowed and consequently AIRBNB is helping the hosts in different ways methods to alleviate their situation.
Many of the empty apartments have been offered to health workers, to stay close to the health centers where they were assigned to work.
