Changes in the rules for renting out apartments

In Turkey, amendments to the law on the rental of accommodation for tourists have been introduced. The amendments were published in the official government gazette and will come into effect on January 1, 2024.

The new rules apply only to short-term rentals for up to 100 days, and the rules for long-term rentals remain unchanged.

To rent out residential properties for a period of up to 100 days, the owner must obtain permission from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Rentals exceeding 100 days are not covered by this law.

For those wishing to rent out their property to tourists, the following requirements must now be met:

  • Install a special sign at the entrance of the building, which is also issued by the Ministry.

  • If renting an apartment in a multi-apartment building, the consent of other apartment owners will be required.

  • Subleasing of property is prohibited.

  • Owners with 4 or more apartments in the same residential complex can only rent out 25% of their properties for short periods.

Violations of the new rules may result in owners being fined from 100,000 to 1 million Turkish liras.
