Rentable housing in Turkey is provided by the private rented sector. There is no provision of 105rental housing and publicly owned rental stock in the country. The private rented sector is large enough to accommodate almost 28 percent of urban households in the country. This paper investigates problems in the private rented sector related to affordability, quality of housing and residential environment. Households’ subjective evaluations are analysed over 2009-2014 period employing the Income and Living Conditions Survey data of the Turkish Statistical Institute. The findings reveal that most of the problems investigated are slightly reduced over the observed period. In both survey years tenants compared to owner-occupiers suffer more from the problems related to affordability, housing and residential environment. Furthermore, the extent of the problem is more severe for tenants with affordability problems.
