Alojamento Local letting licences
A new law was introduced in March 2008 affecting holiday letting in Madeira, Portugal. All holiday home owners who rent out their property in Portugal to paying guests should be aware of the regulations below .
Holiday accommodation in Portugal is now split into two main categories, classed as either an Empreendimento Turístico (tourist establishment - where the complex is solely used for tourism purposes and people cannot buy property such as hotels, campsites), or an Estabelecimento de Alojamento Local (Local Lodging Establishment - guesthouses, apartment complexes and holiday villages)
Any property built from 1951 onwards as a habitable dwelling must by law have a Licença de Habitabilidade. If the property was built before 1951, you must have a certificate from local authorities stating this. If a property built before 1951 is then renovated, an application for a Licença de Habitabilidade must be made.
