Mayor of Lisbon says AL owners should stump up deposits
In the short-term holiday rentals landscape that keeps shifting, mayor of Lisbon Fernando Medina has hinted at a new stipulation for homeowners who sign up for Alojamento Local (AL). He wants a deposit, he told MPs, to be lodged with municipalities the “moment authorisation to function is requested”. This way, councils can use it in cases where guests break rules “particularly in relation to urban waste and noise”.
Medina’s proposal will be officially put to the working group that is now looking at various “projects” for change put forward by different political parties (click here).
