Foreigners may purchase a property in Turkey under their own names, provided that the properties are not located in military zones.
For this reason, after decided to buy a property, an application is made to the Land Registry Office to start procedures for Military clearance. (this process usually takes up to 3 months).The first thing to start with would be getting a local tax number and opening a bank account in a Turkish Bank. This you could easily do on your first day.
The seller of the property and the buyer sign a “contract”, where the complete price of the property, all the property details, received deposit, payments etc. are listed.
For the other legal procedures it is possible to give the estate agency a power of attorney for buying / registering the property in your name. Important: This power of attorney does not include the authorization for selling the property, it is only for buying and transferring the property to your name.
After the military clearance is through, the buyer needs
to come for finalizing.
The new owner of a property will receive a “Title deed” (Tapu) in Turkish. Tapu is the official document proving ownership of a property.
The official rate to pay is 3% of the purchase price for both the buyer and seller.
