I have been told that I need to go to the Town Hall to get a Tourist License. Can I do this at La Marina Urb Town Hall and how long does it last.

Thanks in advance for any replies

Hello

 What you need from the local town hall is a Compatibility certificate. If they are in agreement & your property is suitable to rent out   you will get permission to procede. Without that you cannot apply to Alicante for your Tourist Licence.

This is a thread from the La Marina forum from 4 years ago. Tourist Licence

Things have changed since then. You need to check with your community administrators if they are allowing new rental property on their community. Then you need to check with the town hall if they are agreeing to more tourist rentals. You then need to check with the place you get  your licence if they are issuing any more. Many municipalities have put blocks on issuing more licences for a year or more. 

If everything is agreed down the line it could take one to two years to get a licence approved so best of luck if that's the way you are going.

Currently the licence does not expire but they are now introducing legislation to cancel the licence once the property is sold on so the licence will be for the property and owner instead of just the property like it is now.

Yes, you can usually get a Tourist License at the Town Hall in La Marina Urb. The duration can vary depending on local regulations, but it's typically valid for a certain period, like a year.

Yes I know this. My reply as you can see was to uffington48, who said you can get the license at the town hall.

1. The town hall issues the compatibility certificate once the property has been inspected.

2. The compatibility certificate accompanies the request for a tourist license in Alicante city for the Alicante province.

3. There is no time limit on the tourist license. Currently for ever. New legislation is that it only expires on the sale of the property but that has not yet been agreed.

4. The property owner must register with the police station to get a username and password to enter the details of all people staying at the property (name, passport number, nationality, length of stay etc).

5. The property owner must have a named representative if they are not in Spain. The named representative should be contacted in case of utility breakdowns and so on. 

Town halls do not issue a tourist license.
