The island of Mallorca is a paradise on earth that many people from around the world visit it. In just six years, Mallorca has doubled its tourism.

Tourism Law in the Balearic Islands
On Tuesday, August 8, 2017, the Decree-Law 6/2017 of the reform of the previous law on the tourist stays in housing was approved. This measure implies immediacy of the application of the law, having started at the time of writing, the sanctions applied to owners and a period of 15 days for digital platforms to adjust to the new measures.
The new text aims to fight against the offer of illegal accommodation and limit the role of holiday rentals in the Balearic Islands. The rise in rental prices and illegal offer are some reasons that have helped the imposition of this law.
This reform brings some novelties such as the prohibition of using second homes as vacation rentals, also limiting the rental period to 60 days a year and a 12-month moratorium. These are some measures that have been taken to fight the excessive increase of tourism on the island.
Until now, the holiday rental was limited by single-family homes, leaving all the apartments out of tourist regulation.
The regulation also allows that the authorities to act against the illegal housing, the fines for promoting a house without a license could rise to 40,000 euros. During this time, it is intended that municipalities develop timely tourism planning to determine the selected areas to settle holiday houses on the islands.
The housing register is obligatory to obtain licenses that enable the activity of holiday accommodation. However, the granting of licenses was stopped and subject to exchange of tourist places between holiday homes that remain exclusive of the single-family and semi-detached houses.
