Arrendador - Letting Agent 

Section for people wanting to buy, sell or rent property in Spain.

Arrendedor: letting Agent/landlord.






This is the person who arranges the renting/letting of a property for a given period of time at an agreed price.

The duties of a landlord/letting agent are:

  • The handing over of the property to the tenant
  • Ensuring that the contents of the property are well maintained
  • Undertaking any necessary repairs that may arise through general usage or due to hidden structural defects in the property
  • Making an inventory of contents to be signed by both landlord and tenant at the beginning of a letting contract
  • Respecting the privacy of the tenant.

In Spain if a landlord or landlady decides to sell a rented property, their tenant(s) must be given a minimum notice so that they have time to find alternative rented accommodation. The tenants also have first right to buy the property in question. More information: Right of tenants in Spain to buy rented property.
