ASAE to crackdown on non-compliance of local lodging advertising

in News · 10-08-2017 13:04:00 · 0 Comments

Sources close to ASAE in Lisbon have indicated that the authority is about to launch a crackdown on agents and owners who are failing to publish the local lodging (AL) registration number in
advertisements for short term holiday lets. This new law came into effect on 1 July this year.

It is understood that a number of individual property owners and businesses have complained directly and indirectly to ASAE, that whereas they are being compliant, some other businesses and individuals are not.
If the AL registration is not stated, potential holidaymakers are often not aware of the registration requirement and hence may rent villas that do not meet the required safety standards of letting and could invalidate their insurance should something happen.
The enforcement action is aimed at both those failing to advertise using an AL registration, as well as failing to register.
Sources further indicate that the focus of enforcement action may be in the Algarve where the main violations appear to take place.
Complaints against non-compliance can be made to ASAE at uno@asae.pt or on-line using a template at http://www.asae.pt/ Formulários/, Queixas e Denúncias and can be made anonymously.
