I. What is Rental Law Under Turkish Law?

lease agreement is a contract in which the landlord undertakes to leave the use of something or to benefit from it together with the use to the tenant, and the tenant undertakes to pay the agreed rent in return. Rental law; It can be expressed as the field of law in which the rights and obligations of the parties and the rules are regulated depending on the lease agreement.

In this context, a Landlord Tenant Attorney in Turkey can be considered as a specialized lawyer who takes an active role in the establishment of rental relations, the implementation of its provisions and the resolution of disputes.

In the field of Rental Law under Turkish Law, depending on the lease agreement, the qualifications of the parties to the rental agreement, the rights and obligations of the parties with the rental agreement, the duration of the rental relationship, the delivery and withdrawal of the leased, taxes and similar liabilities arising from the rental relationship, ancillary expenses, defects that may occur or have occurred in the leased property, Matters such as rent, non-payment of rent, evacuation of immovable rents, determination of the rent can be entered.

Lease agreements; field, plot, land, apartment, building, villa, residence, real estate, apartment, etc. as well as for ships that are legally considered immovable and movable goods such as automobiles, trucks, vehicles, telephones, household goods, etc. It may also apply to shaped items.

Rental Agreements can be differentiated in terms of movable or immovable property and “Residential and Roofed Workplace Lease Agreements”. Because the provisions regulated in the fourth part of the Turkish Code of Obligations make a distinction in this direction.

In lease agreements, there will also be discrimination in terms of whether the parties are merchants, trading companies or consumers.

II. Residential and Roofed Workplace Lease Aggrements under Turkish Law

In the 339th and the following articles of the Turkish Code of Obligations; Special regulations regarding residential and roofed workplace rental agreements are included, except for the rental of immovables that are designated for temporary use by their nature for a period of six months or less. Since most of these provisions are mandatory, the mandatory provision of the law will be valid even if there is a contrary provision in the lease agreements.

It is an appropriate practice to apply the mandatory provisions on housing lease agreements for the accommodation needs of people and to establish the balance of power between the lessor and the tenant. Similar to Turkey’s practice, there are similar practices in Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland.

III. Residential Lease Agreements in Turkey, the most important issues to know about;

  • The landlord will not have the right to evacuate at the end of the 1-year rental period specified in the rental agreement,
  • We can only provide the evacuation of the tenant based on the reasons listed as the limits of the law, and the reasons for the evacuation are;
  • Evacuation based on the reason for the evacuation decision, evacuation due to written rules, evacuation due to the burden of the owner, evacuation due to the damage of the tenant to the property, evacuation due to non-payment of rental fees, evacuation due to mandatory coverage and renewal, evacuation due to warning in two regions, evacuation due to undesirable delivery to neighbors and that he can be evicted due to the expiry of the 10-year period.
  • In case the leased property changes hands (sale, transfer due to inheritance, transfer due to title deed cancellation and registration case, etc.), the lease agreement will be valid in the same way as the new owner.
  • If the tenant wants to return the leased property before the contract period, he will continue to pay the rent for a reasonable period of time. However, if the tenant finds a new tenant with the same condition as himself, in this case the lessor will not demand the rental fee.
  • The price written as the deposit (guarantee) price in the rental contract is returned as the same price after the delivery of the leased person.
  • In disputes regarding the delivery of the leased property, there is a need for proof with written evidence, which is called “Turnkey Report”.
  • If there is no provision in the lease agreement stating that the rental price will be increased at the beginning of the 1-year renewal of the rental agreement, the lessor cannot demand that the rent be paid in increments. It should open the lease determination file.
    In the 1-year renewal period of the rental agreement, even if there is a different provision in the agreement, the cost increase rate will not exceed the average rate in the two-month Consumer Price Index. If there is a lower rate in the contract, then the lower rate will be applied.We consider their deliveries to be important considerations that should be purchased by all lessors and tenants.

A lease agreement is a contract in which the lessor undertakes to leave the use of something or to benefit from it together with the use to the lessee, and the lessee undertakes to pay the agreed rent in return. Rental law; It can be expressed as the field of law in which the rights and obligations of the parties and the rules are regulated depending on the lease agreement.

In this context, a Landlord Tenant Attorney can be considered as a specialized lawyer who takes an active role in the establishment of rental relations, the implementation of its provisions and the resolution of disputes.

Rental eviction reasons are limited to the conditions listed in the Turkish Code of Obligations. Even if there are different conditions in the rental agreement, these conditions will not be valid due to the prohibition of regulation against the tenant and the violation of the mandatory provision of the law.

The first of the reasons for the eviction of the tenant will undoubtedly be the violation of the tenant’s obligation to pay the rent. Apart from this, in the law; Evacuation due to two justified warnings, evacuation with evacuation letter, evacuation due to necessity, expiry of 10-year lease, and the conditions of the new owner’s right to evacuate were also counted.
