Pursuant to the first paragraph of Article 344 of the Turkish Code of Obligations (“Law”), which is to be found in the section of the Law governing the general principles regarding residential and roofed workplace rents and which regulates rules for determining rental prices: “The agreements of the parties regarding the rental price to be applied in the renewed rental periods are valid, provided that they do not exceed the change rate of the twelve-month average for the consumer price index (“CPI”) in the previous rental year. This rule also applies to lease agreements with a term longer than one year.
