The majority of Syrian refugees have settled in urban areas rather than refugee camps such as Zaatari. Life is Jordan is expensive for the Syrians. Many of the urban refugees struggle to make ends meet. Rents have risen significantly since refugees started to settle in Jordan and many landlords charge refugees exorbitant rents and having spent their saving and sold jewelry, keepsakes and heirlooms many struggle to afford the rents. Families who cannot afford the rents on the housing market, those who have entered Jordan illegally and Syrians who are not (yet) registered with UNHCR are camping out on the outskirts of towns.
