Do you have any idea about what paperwork you need to run a B+B here ?
yes - I am in talks with Antonio a local architect - who's wife sorts out the legal requirements - i have seen several up and running, but if under 3 rooms let out, then not all paperwork needed. Bit like the different requirements in uk.

i also like idea of self contained rooms- flats.

Sorry to say I think you are begin misinformed. ALL accommodation in Galicia is regulated. That is from Camping sites right through to Paradores.
Maybe contacting the Xunta de Galicia will confirm this. You can speak to them directly as their offices for this sector are based in Lugo.
If you handle food you will need a certificate for that too. That can be obtained in the UK and then translated into Spanish if you cannot speak the language. The Xunta offer free courses here if you understand Spanish.
Then every public building has to have some sort of fire regulations to abide too. Not so strict as the U.K. but you have to have some things.
As I said before if you start running something you run the risk of either a local Casa Rural or hotel denouncing you or even a customer when they find out you are not registered. Are you willing to always be looking over your shoulder in case trouble comes calling?

If the 3 bed (or less) ruling is applicable in Galicia, then where are they? The Galicians area astute lot and they are always willing to use the least complicated path.

I do not discuss issues about things like black money on an open forum.

From what I have read any rental or other business offering accommodation including individual owners who rent the villas out when not there require some form of licence from the tourism brancj of the government - don't know any one who actually pays attention to this including the government.

Also meant to mention that it is unusual to find 12 month long term rentals in SPain. The law is very much on the tennants side and the owner risks losing control of the property and rental charged - like the old UK statutory tenancies. Therefore 9 - 11 months is more ususal, Most landlords will renew this - although they are putting themselves in a risky position by doing so. If the tennant still owns a home abroad or elsewhere in Spain then he is unlikely to be able to claim protection of the tenancy even if it does extend beyond a year.

Length of contract means nothing, it is the wording that has to be right or the renter can extend it to five years if they wish.

So where have you read this and what area of Spain does it cover?
The link I gave says just the opposite as each Comunidad Autónoma( (Community)has it's own regulations.
