Why a property rental contract is important and what it should contain

Property rental contract

Maybe you are the owner of a Spanish property, renting it out, or someone looking for a place to live as a tenant. It’s important that your interests are protected with a Rental Contract, especially since many of the existing Spanish tenancy laws have been updated.

The contract should be clear, simple and ideally drawn up by a qualified lawyer. A Rental Contract will typically set out:

  • Names of both parties
  • Address of the rental property
  • Term of the lease, arrangements for lease extensions, notice period and exiting the contract.
  • Rental deposit
  • Rental charge, payment schedules and payment method
  • Itemised list of costs and expenses and by which party they are to be borne e.g. utility bills, property insurance, rubbish collection tax and IBI tax (like Council tax)
  • Upkeep and maintenance and the responsibilities of both parties.
