Turkey tightens rules for renting out housing to tourists

The Turkish authorities have decided to tighten legislation regarding short-term rental of real estate for tourism purposes.

Short-term rental is a rental for a period not exceeding 100 days. To carry out this type of business activity, you need to obtain a license from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

If the owner rents out an apartment to tourists in an apartment building, then all neighbors in the house must give their consent to this. Also, a corresponding sign from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism must be posted at the entrance to the house.

Tourists need to remember that in case of renting an object without a license, a fine of 100,000 lire is provided for both the landlord and the tenant.

When obtaining a license, submitting misleading information to the Ministry of Tourism, or failing to comply with submission deadlines will result in a fine of 50,000 liras.

In addition, subletting is prohibited, that is, renting out to third parties housing rented from someone who has permission to rent out property to tourists. Such violators are also subject to a fine of 100,000 liras.
