Guide for Rental Accommodation in Turkey

10th August 2015

If you are looking around for a new home, either to rent or buy, you will likely find some great looking places, with adverts written in Turkish. Here is some useful vocabulary to help you decipher the advert and discover a new home for you and your family. And don’t forget to negotiate!

For other mystery words in the advert, Tureng is always a useful translation resource.

When you are considering your options, pay particular attention to the currency the rental is paid in relative to the currency you are being paid in. If your rent is due in a foreign currency and the Lira loses value against that currency, you may find yourself paying more in rent as the lease goes on.

Some useful websites to help with your search include:

• (Be wary of higher prices than other sites though)
