2.- Should users fail to comply with any of the obligations established by this decree or those related to the rules of coexistence, the owner of this service may refuse the users´stay and require the abandonment of the accommodation within twenty-four hours.
The licensees of the rental property object of this decree must have signed a civil liability insurance contract that sufficiently covers the possible risks of the tourist activity.
The person or management company signatory of the licence must have obtained a civil responsability insurance.
It is compulsory to nominate a person in charge of the tourist rental property.
The correct provision of the management of all the services before the user, its maintenance and to ensure its proper functioning corresponds to the person in charge of the accommodation.
Each tourist rental property must clearly display the contact telephone number of the person responsible for the accommodation at least in the Spanish and English languages.
The decree increases the number of languages in which the notice advising of the existence of complaint forms must be written.
This notice will be displayed to the public in a visible way that allows easy reading and it is expressed in Spanish, English and two other languages to choose from.
Tourist rental properties must have a fire extinguisher installed in an easily accessible place.
They will also have a basic first aid kit.
A period of 6 months is given to adapt the dwelling where the accommodation service is provided to the requirements of the new decree.
However, as soon as the decree takes effect (valid from November 08, 2019), the competent body will require the accommodation´s licensees to submit, within a maximum of 10 days, the rest of the required information.
That´s why Fuster & Associates advises you to install a medical kit and a fire extinguisher as well as to take out civil liability insurance to cover all the possible risks that come with any tourist activities conducted on the premises for a mínimum coverage of 300.000€ as soon as possible.
