Neighbourly relations in buildings under the horizontal property regime are a constant source of conflict. The houses for tourist use derived from the new methods of contracting have meant a new form of accommodation that sometimes generates serious inconveniences and annoyances for the rest of the owners. The RDL 7/2019, of 1 March, on urgent measures for housing and renting, has modified section 12 of article 17 of the Law on Horizontal Property, lowering the majority regime so that communities of owners can adopt agreements to “limit” and “condition” this tourist activity. However, this precept lacks the necessary regulatory clarity, raising a whole series of questions of civil and registration repercussions, the most relevant being whether to include within this new majority the prohibition of these dwellings, as well as the scope of their non-retroactive nature established by the regulation. The registration of the statutes of the communities of owners and its modification establishing prohibitions, limitations or conditions to the houses of tourist use, will affect third buyers of the own tourist house or of other privative elements located in the same building in horizontal property.
