This is important to know.
• When signing the document on the transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer, all parties to the transaction or their representatives must be present.
• Take care of the presence of an interpreter, who should not be the same name of a foreign citizen, if the transaction is concluded with a foreigner.
• Pay attention to the correspondence of the actual address of the real estate object to what is written in the TAPU.
• Check the TAPU for legal purity, find out if there are any encumbrances on it: mortgage, pledge, debt obligations, partial alienation, donation or seizure agreement.
• When buying residential property during the construction phase, make sure that the construction company in Turkey has a construction plan as well as a building permit. When buying a finished home, check for taxes, water and electricity bills.
• Lost TAPU can be restored. To do this, you will need to pay a state fee.
