    deposit protection scheme

    Hi sorry if this is in the incorrect section. I am an agent in the UK renting properties in Spain. I give an english contract. On lets of over 8 weeks - 3 months I get paid in full for the rental and take a security deposit. As I said the proeprty is in Spain. Should this security deposit be held here in the UK in a deposit protection scheme? edited they wont take them here as address is not in the uk

    When you say an english contract do you mean an AST or a spanish contract worded in the English language, please?

    You should speak to a spanish lawyer specialising in landlord/tenant matters. Sounds like a right muddle with huge opportunities for the contract to be challenged.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      I generally do short terms of 2 weeks holiday lets. Its a short term contract thats 18 years old with some add ons! It is a muddle but generally cannot get anyone interested from Spain..............and they all say different things anyway! Spain do say a short term contract can be as long as a year.........in some regions

        Holiday lets are treated like hotel bookings, not like tenancies subject to ASTs, even without the international complications. That assumes that they are genuine holiday lets, and not the provision of a main home.
