Property Purchase Procedure

Buying a property in Turkey is a lot easier than in many other European countries.

In order to acquire the Title Deed of a property, an application has to be submitted to the local Land Registry Office in which the property is situated. After carrying out necessary checks for the above mentioned requirements, the transfer of the Title Deed is done by the Land Registry Office. A Tapu Expense of %1,5 company , %1,5 customer is collected from the purchaser during the transaction.

An annual property tax is collected by the municipalities (i.e. local governments) at the rate of
approximately 0.1% for land and 0.3% for property in the Bodrum area. In the big cities these figures are double. All properties are subject to revaluation every year for tax purposes. On newly built properties, within 3 months of construction finishing, the buyer must complete an official affidavit and submit it to the municipality for these tax purposes. We are happy to guide customers through this process for the first time.

The acquired property may be resold, rented out or willed and the proceeds may be transferred out of Turkey. Please note: Different regulations apply when a property is purchased for business related purposes.

Purchase Procedure

The purchase of a property is completed in three stages:

Stage 1 

The developer will draw up a contract with the buyer detailing the agreed terms and conditions of the purchase. A legal translator will be present at all stages to represent the buyer.

Stage 2

The legal translator then takes the buyer's passport(s) to the Notary for translation. This is necessary for the security and property location checks mentioned above. The translation takes a maximum of half an hour, after which the passport(s) will be returned to the buyer.

Stage 3

Once the application has been approved by the Land Registry Office( it takes 9 – 12 months for the security and property location checks to be made and approved, due to the high number of foreigners purchasing in Turkey), the developer will sign over the deed of the property to the buyer (assuming all outstanding payments have been received). It is at this point that the Tapu Expense of 3% is due. The developer pays 1.5% and the purchaser pays 1.5% of this cost.
