Changes in the "Mais Habitação" Package and Alojamento Local?

Changes in the "Mais Habitação" Package and Alojamento Local?

Dear Property Owners and Investors,

We hope you are all in good health and ready for some exciting news! It is with great pleasure that we bring you updates that promise not only to keep you informed but also to boost the effectiveness of your real estate investments.

Legislative Updates in Local Accommodation

The new Government has announced plans to revoke several measures from the "Mais Habitação" program, which previously imposed significant restrictions on the Alojamento Local sector. These changes include:

  • Elimination of the Extraordinary Contribution: The Extraordinary Contribution on Local Accommodation (CEAL), primarily applied in densely populated coastal areas, will be eliminated.
  • End of License Expiration: AL licenses will no longer have a restricted validity period of five years, promoting greater stability for investors.
  • Permission for New License Applications: The issuance of new AL licenses will be permitted, with conditions and regions still to be defined, opening new opportunities for sector expansion.

    Industry Reaction

    Eduardo Miranda, president of the ALEP, expressed confidence in the proposed changes:

    "We are counting on the promises regarding Local Accommodation being fulfilled to ensure the sector's stability. It doesn't make sense for Local Accommodation to be part of the housing debate when there are 1.1 million holiday homes and 750,000 vacant homes in Portugal. What Local Accommodation wants is to stop being part of this politicized discussion and achieve stability."

    Impact for Investors

    These changes promise to bring new dynamism to the Alojamento Local market, with direct impacts for you, our partners:

    • Greater Security and Predictability: With the removal of restrictions, the investment environment becomes more stable and predictable.
