Legal Guide

At no extra cost to you as our client, we will help you every step of the way with the purchase of your new property.

Below are some brief points explaining about purchasing property in Turkey.

Who can buy a real estate in Turkey: Citizens and commercial corporate entities of the countries with which reciprocity agreements have been signed and companies established in line with Foreign Direct Investment Law No: 4875 in Turkey may purchase a real estate in Turkey in their own names provided that the property is not located in military and security zones.The acquired property may be resold or rented out and the proceeds of the sale or the rental income may be transferred out of Turkey freely.

Title Deeds: A title deed (TAPU in Turkish.) is an official document which shows you have ownership rights over the real estate. The owner(s) full name and photograph, and detailed information about the asset being purchased appear on this document. The sale procedure for foreigners is the same as Turkish citizens except a search for the above mentioned military and security zones restriction. Once a sale is agreed with the owner an application has to be made to the local Land Registry Office. The Land Registry Office then carries out a search for the above mentioned restriction through correspondence with the military authorities in the area. As soon as the search is complete the Land Registry Office transfers the title and then issues the new deed. Each freehold property will have a property deed known as a TAPU, the name of the present owner is written on the TAPU in addition to a photograph and general information about the plot size, plan, number, district, town and location.

A background check is made on all foreign nationals buying in Turkey.Anyone with a criminal record cannot buy property in Turkey. This process takes about three months and once approved the TAPU will be issued. A copy of your passport is sent to the Ministry of Defense for authorization which can take from 6 to 10 weeks. Once all the checks on the property or land have been carried out and the authorization has been returned from the Ministry of Defense the title deeds will be changed into your name at the Land Registry, both buyer and seller can be present to enter new details in the Registry book at the Land Registry Office.

Bank account: It is a good idea to open a Turkish bank account for payment of bills. You can open an account at a Turkish Bank in your own name. All you need to enable you do this is to have a tax number from the local tax office which takes only a few minutes, then take this and a copy of your passport to the bank that you have chosen.

Purchase Tax: Both purchaser and seller are liable for a 1.5 per cent property transfer tax, based on the declared price of the property. There is also a municipal property tax this also is based on the declared value of the property at the rate of 0.1 per cent for residential properties and 0.3 per cent for land annually. The newly built residential properties are exempt from the municipal property tax for the first five years. Council tax of approximately £100 per year is paid for the collection of rubbish, street lighting etc.

Tax: Turkey has a double taxation agreement with UK and Europe.

Types of properties: In general properties in Turkey are of Freehold type. There is a wide range of options such as detached, semi-detached, terraced houses, purpose-built flats, cottages and luxury villas. Quality residential buildings are available everywhere in Turkey.
