The Regulation on The Management of Activities Regarding the Leasing of Residential Properties for Touristic Purposes (“Regulation”, No.32413) has been prepared in accordance with Article 6 of the Leasing of Residencial Properties for Touristic Purposes and Amendments to Certain Laws (Law No. 7464) and entered into force on January 1, 2024. It aims to establish procedures and principles for the tourism-oriented leasing of properties for a single period of one hundred days or less. 

Permit application procedures, qualifications of properties, obligations of permit holders, and the mutual rights and responsibilities of users and permit holders are regulated under the Regulation.

In accordance with the Regulation, applicants must be either real or legal persons who own the property, have the right of usufruct (beneficial owner), or right of construction. Tenants are not eligible to apply for the permit.

Applications are restricted to independent sections that are specifically registered in the land registry for residential purposes, or those that hold a condominium easement or condominium ownership expressly designated for residential use.

If approved, a permit will be issued, and a mandatory inspection of the property will be conducted within thirty days after the permit's issuance and at least every two years after the first mandatory inspection.

The permit will include details such as the permit holder's name or business name, residence address, permit date, the maximum number of people allowed in the property, and a unique document number.
