Q. We had this enquiry today, which may interest some people.
Just a quick question that I think you will know the answer to. If someone buys a property that already has a tourist rental licence is the licence transferable or would the new owner need to apply from scratch?
A. This was our answer.
Thank you for contacting us. When the property has the tourist licence the new owner can change it into their name. The buyer has to sign an application form, with a copy of the licence and their identification, and send it by Post to the Tourist office. We can help them with this process for 40 + VAT = 48.40€ fee.
