Letting your property

  • If you want to rent out your property to make a little extra income, either as a holiday let or on a medium to long term basis, The Gleam Team can assist in making it available to prospective clients by advertising it through our own web site which also has links to local Estate Agent at no extra cost to yourselves.
  • We would also recommend that we advertise your property on a reputable web site to maximise your rental opportunities.
  • However, as we believe in being totally honest and up front with all our clients we will also be realistic about the rental income you can expect to receive and the rental terms available.
  • In general, any rentals that we make on your behalf will be subject to a fee of 15%. Any rentals you make personally will not attract that fee so you will be able to keep the entire rental charge.
  • Once you start renting out your property you have an obligation to file taxes declaring any income you receive. Any registered accountant in Spain can help you with this. In Spain you should declare your rental income quarterly unlike the UK where it is annually.You will need to provide your chosen accountant with your income and any property expenses for each quarter. You are allowed to use utility bills, mortgage payments and general household expenses to offset your income, your accountant will need this information. Your expenses will only be allowed for the number of days during the quarter your property is rented out. Your accountant will be able to explain more on this. Tax rates for 2018 are 19% on any profit you make.
  • All rental properties will be provided with a comprehensive booklet advising guests about the property and what facilities and services are available in the area. We will also prepare a fully detailed inventory of everything in the property and this will be checked regularly to ensure nothing has been lost or broken.
