LANGUAGE FOR A RENTAL AGREEMENT

Post by space man on Sun Aug 07, 2011 4:11 pm

Does anyone know for a fact what language a rental agreement has to be in to be legal in Spain. I am about to rent a villa from an English owner living in the UK and need to know where I stand legally. Thanks in advance, Spicey

Just my thoughts, but surely as long as you both understand and sign then it doesn't matter, so English? I'm sure somebody who knows the decimate answer will be along shorty. Come on Boothy! Laughing

Here you go !!

The rental contract should ideally be written in Spanish however a foreign language contract, such as English, is perfectly legal although it would need to be professionally translated into Spanish in the event of court proceedings. However if the contract doesn’t state “Vivienda” or “temporada”, the landlord could have difficulties when it comes to renewing. For example: If you, as the owner, intended only to rent to a tenant for a year, provided them with an English contract which didn’t clearly state it as a “temporada” contract, the tenant could, at the time of renewal, claim that the property was their permanent residence. If this occurred the tenant would inevitably win their case and you would be required to renew for up to 5 years. Therefore it is important to stress that the contract is a temporary one if you do not want a long term tenant
