LONG TERM WINTER LETS & RENTALS IN TORREVIEJA
If you are looking to escape the cold winter weather and temperatures in northern Europe then finding and locating a long-term winter rental in Spain is a great idea as the weather in wintertime is often mild and sunny.
At this time of year many villas and apartments will be empty so you can find cheap bargain prices for winter lets in Torrevieja.
POSSIBLE PROBLEMS TO AVOID
There is one major downside to a long term rental let in Torrevieja. After the year the tenant has the right to renew for up to five years and the landlord can only increase the rent by the annual rate of inflation. So what’s the problem!
Well because the tenants have so many rights, after a year you will find many landlords will want you out and will get different tenants in. It means you have to move over and over again but the upside is you experience living in different types of houses in different areas of Torrevieja.
In any case, after a year’s long term rental or long term let you probably have a better idea of where in Spain you would really like to live now – it may not even be in Torrevieja – almost certainly it will be in a different area to the one you would have chosen before you moved to Torrevieja.
