How to Buy a Property in Turkey
1. Once you have selected your property of choice in Turkey, you will sign a sales contract with the seller, which will include the terms of payment and details of the property. At this point you will be expected to pay a deposit to secure the property and are advised to conduct all relevant checks regarding planning permission etc.
2. Once you have signed your sales contract an application will be made on your behalf by the agent or the construction company to obtain official permission to proceed from the Military authorities. This is a simple process but may take up to 3 months to complete and entails cursory checks into the purchasers background and the location of the property being purchased to ensure it is not in any unapproved zones.
3. Once the permissions have been granted then you are ready to obtain your title deeds (Tapu) from the land Registry office. This entails a transfer from the seller to the buyers name and both parties are present to sign the transfer documents. These formalities can also be completed on your behalf by granting a power of attorney to a legal representative.
What do you need ?
1. A local Tax Number - You will need to register at the tax office to obtain this number, this can be done by your agent and all that is required is your passport.
