Renting out property in Tenerife with short-term contracts: (contrato de arrendamiento por temporada) normally run for three or six months, up to a maximum of one year. Whatever the duration of the contract, the conditions are binding for both parties and there is no notice period because both parties have to respect the entire contract period.
However, it is important to note that short-term contracts are in no way intended for ordinary residential purposes. They are contracts for a specific purpose, e.g. temporary traineeships, study, etc., and not for the usual habitual principal place of residence. The tenant’s main residence must be specified in the contract (e.g. home address in the UK). Nor can they be used for tourism purposes. The government (Turismo) says that such a contract of less than three months will be considered by the government as touristic, and fines are imposed on owners for offering such illegal contracts.
