Landlords gathered Friday outside the Constitutional Council protesting a challenge to the new rent law, which is set to go into effect in six months after being republished in the Official Gazette last month.According to the law, the Constitutional Council has 10 days to file a review of the law after it receives the challenge.According to the new law, tenants under pre-1992 rental contracts will face rent increases in yearly increments over a six-year period, until annual rents reach 5 percent of the current market value of the house.
