Maternity And Paternity Leave In Lanzarote

Mercadona Baby Section April 2016 dz

Following on from my previous article on registering a new born baby in the Spanish system, another important thing to do is to organise your maternity or paternity leave. Both I and my fiancée are employed by other people, so I know how it works from that perspective, but I'm afraid I can´t explain how to do it if you are self-employed. read more »

Lanzarote News In Brief, Week 25, 2017

Housing Crisis Being Needs To Be Addressed

The case of “Gabriela" who was evicted from her home in Arrecife and protested outside The Cabildo, has sparked debate about the current shortage of residential housing stock on the island. There are many factors - the increase in tourism, with the subsequent increase in holiday lettings, the lack of a cohesive housing plan since 2012, the lack of new build properties, empty properties on the island, often owned by banks, the way the law favours tenants which discourages some owners from renting longer term and the increase in the island’s population. The bottom line is there is a desperate shortage of affordable rental accommodation, particularly in Playa Blanca and Arrecife, so hopefully this issue will be address shortly.

Average of 55,000 Tourists On The Island On Any Given Day
