THOUSANDS of holiday rental homes in Malaga have failed to be registered since the new regulations came into force.
Data released by the Junta de Andalucia has shown that of the 8,000 requests to register a property as ‘for tourist use’, 4,000 so far have met the requirements and been given their code number.
However a study by the Malaga Tourism Department before the law came into force in May estimated the number of holiday rentals advertised on the Costa del Sol to be 26,847, meaning thousands are choosing not to register.
Marbella has seen the most apartments and villas registered for tourist use, listing 693 homes with capacity for 4,229.
Torremolinos, however, which sees 40% of the coast’s tourist-related income, has registered just 197 homes with space for 866 people.
