In Spain, more than 3.5 million families have a second residence, and given the growing increase in the squatting of these homes, the medium-term rental is positioned as a solution to this problem, as Spotahome points out. And it is that according to Government data, only in the first 6 months of the year, 10,220 crimes of trespassing or usurpation were registered, without distinction between first or second home
The medium-term rental is positioned today as a possible alternative for those owners who want to be able to continue using their home. In addition, it becomes a good solution to prevent possible unpleasant consequences, such as occupation, due to being empty for long periods, for example, in second homes. And it is that, according to the latest data from the Housing Census, prepared by the National Institute of Statistics (INE), more than 3.5 million families in Spain have a second residence. As they are empty most of the year, the Second homes are more at risk. According to the X-ray of squatting in Spain, carried out by the Ministry of the Interior, second homes or those under construction are the most affected. In total, in the first half of the year, 10,220 crimes of trespassing or usurpation were registered, without distinction between first or second homes. A very interesting solution for the owners of these homes is to opt for half-stay rental. "This allows the owner to have the home in use and, therefore, more protected against possible squatting, but at the same time, enjoy it in the periods they want. Thus, in addition to keeping the property protected, benefits can be obtained economical," says Eduardo Garbayo, VP of Business and Operations at Spotahome. "Most of the medium-term tenants are professionals displaced for limited periods of time, postgraduate students, etc., so they take care of the home, since they reside in it. Likewise, the medium-term rental is not regulated by the tourist rental legislation", points out the manager. In addition, this type of rental regime is also compatible with other models. For example, there is the case of many owners who opt for vacation rentals during the high season period, and the half-stay rental during the low season. According to data from Spotahome, in Spain in 2022 the number of owners who makes personal use of the house that they rent for medium duration. The main value that Spotahome brings is, precisely, to give security to the tenant and the owner when renting a home digitally. An owner who rents his home through Spotahome, in its Plus program, has a tenant validated by its anti-fraud model that uses the latest technologies and tools on the market, with guaranteed solvency, and also has the assurance that Spotahome pays the rent on 5th of each month, regardless of whether the tenant has already paid, and the owner has protection against damages of up to €500. But the most important thing is that when renting the house digitally, it is rented in advance, on average between 45 and 60 days before the previous tenant has left the home, and therefore the home is always rented without requiring long visiting periods.
