The Mallorca Real Estate Day event took place at Mallorca’s Club Diario on 13 May, 2016, and was a huge success in terms of attendance. The event’s focus was to shed light on property-related problems from the point of view of German-speaking property owners in particular.
The programme included several speakers and a number of exhibition stands situated outside, where large numbers of visitors were able to interact with representatives of specialist companies in the field, among them Bufete Buades.
First on the agenda was a guided tour of the Conference Centre, then it was the turn of the speakers. Mr Willi Plattes gave a talk on tax issues related to rental properties, in Spain and in Germany, under the Spanish Urban Lettings Act and the tax on stays in tourist establishments. Mr Micheel Wassouf then talked about the energy efficiency measures available to home owners, while Professor Heribert Heckschen, a German public notary, gave a talk on the problematic area of inheritance and probate law applicable to German nationals with property in Spain. The final speaker, Ms Alexandra Wilms, press secretary for the Regional Ministry for Tourism, described the state of tourism and tourist accommodation today.
The day’s activities were rounded off with a cocktail, allowing visitors the chance to share their impressions and explore the issues raised during the event in greater detail.
