If you are going to buy a flat that already has a tourist licence, it is important to know that a change of ownership is possible. In this way, you will be able to exploit the licence.
Likewise, you may have noticed that flats with a holiday rental licence have a higher monetary value.
This is because there are many legal restrictions on obtaining a new licence. However, when it comes to transferring it, there are not so many difficulties and nowadays, you do not need prior permission from the local council.

How to transfer a tourist licence in the Valencian Community?
For the most part, we recommend submitting this documentation to the GVA:
- Documentation that accredits the new ownership
- Tourist Licence Document
- New holder’s National Identity Card
- DNI (National Identity Card) of the old holder
- Cadastral reference
The presentation of the documentation is done on the official website of the Generalitat Valencia, through the digital certificate.
Deadline and fee
Firstly, the deadline for the change is approximately 2 months.
Secondly, there is no fee for this procedure.
Is an urban development compatibility report necessary?
At present, the Generalitat Valencia does not require an urban development compatibility report for the change of ownership for a tourist housing licence.
After all the restrictions imposed by some town halls, the good news is that it is not necessary to go through them for the change of ownership. This seems to be temporary and in the future, it will not be possible to do so.
When should the transfer of a tourist rental licence be carried out?
The transfer must be done when you have already acquired the property and you have the documents to prove it.
