Turkish Property Law is a part of Turkish Civil Law (Civil Law). Our legal team has the necessary expertise and skill for real estate transactions.
There are many differences between purchasing real estate in the Netherlands and in Turkey. Legally, the official transfer of real estate in Turkey only takes place at Turkish Land Registry (Tapu). A Tapu is a document proving that you are the rightful owner of a property in Turkey. It confirms the transaction. After you obtain the Tapu, you are recognized as (full) owner of the Turkish property.
The notary basically has no role in this transaction procedure. In some situations, a notarized pre-purchase agreement must be drawn up to officially record agreements. The registration and completion of formalities for a Tapu for a foreign citizen can take up to 1.5-2 months. To simplify this process, hire a specialist to represent you during this procedure.
In case of notarized purchase in the Netherlands, the potential buyer can obtain the legal and technical information regarding the property through the notary. He does not have to research the status of the property himself. In Turkey, however, one needs to research the status of the property himself. This is the great unfamiliarity for the foreign buyers.
