Keep the legislation in mind
The LAU (Law of Urban Leases) allows you to rent a home on a timely basis, for a few days or weeks. But you must inform yourself of the specific regulations in your Autonomous Community, which is the one who has the competence in terms of holiday rentals. In case of exercising the activity on a regular basis (a dwelling intended for tourist rental), you must register the property as a tourist home. For this, the body in charge is usually the Ministry of Tourism of each of the Autonomous Communities.
Prepare a contract
The best, for the peace of mind of both parties, is to sign a holiday contract in which certain conditions are specified, such as deposit, checkout, inventory, etc. Regarding taxes, you must reflect the rental income in your income statement.

Don't neglect the organization
The good state of cleaning, maintenance, furniture and utensils is essential to generate confidence in potential tenants. In addition, they will value a contact in person who gives them and collects the keys, explains the particularities of the house, etc.
