Providing that one can respect and is familiar with the rules and regulations, purchase of property in Turkey is relatively simple, safe and without any risk. Each transfer of ownership is registered at the Land Registry Office. After the transfer of ownership the new owner receives a proof of ownership, the so-called “Tapu” (proof of registration at the Land Registry Office). The Land Registry Office is managed by the municipality. For the exchange of deeds the “old” and the “new” owner should be present at the Land Registry Office in person with their identity papers, a set of recent passport photos and the full name of their father. Moreover the presence of a sworn interpreter is required when either the buyer or seller is of foreign nationality.
In the event of there being an existing legacy, a legal will drawn up in the country of origin is officially recognized. If there is no legal will, then the Turkish law of succession is applied.
The tapu is only issued at the Land Registry Office in the presence of a sworn interpreter. Never accept a transfer of ownership through a lawyer, a notary or through so-called friends or acquaintances!
Legislation with regard to the purchase of real estate by Non-Residents
Private Non-Residents are permitted to purchase real estate in Turkey on the condition that they comply with a few specific regulations.
According to § 35 of the Turkish Land Register, Private Non-Residents are authorized to buy or inherit property in Turkey provided that there is no change of by-laws on a reciprocal basis.
This particular legal regulation consents to the acquisition of landownership by Private Non-Residents
Restrictions that need to be complied with:
1) New! On the 3rd of July 2003 a statutory change was made concerning Private Non-Residents. In accordance with the new Land Register Law §4916 Section 19 Chapter 35 Private Non-Residents are authorized to buy and subsequently pass down property from now on within the municipal boundaries as well.
2) The instructions issued by the Central Administration should be complied with and in particular with reference to the areas that are located outside of tourist zones in addition to areas that are located outside of municipal boundaries that are part of these tourist zones as well.

It is for this reason that it is crucial for Private Non-Residents to check with the military authorities in question whether the property that they are planning to purchase is located outside of a military forbidden zone or a military security zone
