Buying Procedure

Buying Procedure

Viewing trip

Before you come for a viewing trip it is a good idea to visit your bank to sort out your finances. Thus you know you are able to buy your dream home when you find it. Then you can buy the plane tickets for the time most suitable for you, and just let us know when you are coming. We will then arrange for you accommodation for maximum one week and aiport transfers. If you decide to buy with us we will then refund the price of the tickets. We organize private viewings so you can visit the properties that interest you.

Signing the contract

We will draw up a contract if you decide to buy a property. We will make sure that there are no previous pawns or loans for that apartment. A deposit of 1000€ is paid when signing the contract and that price is deducted from the purchasing price. The contract includes all the necessary information about the real estate agent,  the buyer, the seller, the property and the payment plan. The payment plan for the property varies according to different properties but as a general rule the full purchasing price must have been paid by the time the buyer receives the new TAPU.

Power of Attorney

To make things easier for you as a buyer we recommend that you give us the power of attorney. This way we can act on behalf of you and sign all the necessary papers needed for the buying process. Notarius Publicus and an official interpreter write our papers for the power of attorney. This power of attorney gives us ie. the right to pick up your TAPU and make contracts for electricity and water for you. If there are several buyers all the names should be mentioned in the paper.

Tax number/Bank account

We help you with all the practical matters, such as as getting a tax number and fixing up a personal bank account to a Turkish bank.

Title Deed

Title deed is in Turkish TAPU, and it gives you the ownership rights to your property. The previous process for first time foreign buyers is no longer valid. These days the applications are dealt directly in the Land Office in Alanya. It takes about a week to receive the TAPU after submitting all the necessary papers. This new procedure requires that there is a previous foreign buyer in the same building who has received their TAPU after 2011. If there is no previous foreign buyer in the same complex then the procedure to get the TAPU is done as before, by submitting the paperwork to the military officials. This process takes about 8-10 weeks.
