Buying and Selling Property in Turkey

Property Ownership: Foreign nationals are allowed to acquire real estate in Turkey under certain conditions. Non-Turkish citizens may purchase property for residential or commercial purposes, provided that their home country allows Turkish citizens to buy property there. Additionally, there may be restrictions on the total area of land a foreigner can own in Turkey.

Title Deed (TAPU) Transfer: The process of buying property in Turkey involves obtaining a Title Deed (TAPU) from the local Land Registry Directorate. This document certifies the ownership of the property and its boundaries. Both parties (buyer and seller) or their legal representatives must be present during the transfer process.

Legal Checks: Before finalizing a property purchase, it is crucial to conduct thorough legal checks. These checks include verifying the property’s ownership status, any existing liens, mortgages, or encumbrances, and confirming that the property complies with zoning and building regulations.

Rent Law in Turkey

Tenant and Landlord Rights: Turkish law provides rights and protections for both tenants and landlords. The law sets out the terms and conditions of the lease agreement, including the duration, rent amount, and responsibilities of both parties.

Rent Increase: Rent increase is subject to the terms agreed upon in the lease agreement. Landlords must adhere to the agreed-upon rent for the duration specified in the contract. When the lease is up for renewal, the parties can renegotiate the rent amount.

Eviction: Turkish law protects tenants from unjust eviction. Landlords can terminate a lease contract prematurely under specific circumstances, such as non-payment of rent or breach of contract. However, eviction must follow a formal legal process, and tenants have the right to contest the eviction in court.

Dispute Resolution

Mediation: Before initiating a lawsuit, parties involved in a real estate dispute are encouraged to attempt mediation. Mediation provides a cost-effective and faster way to resolve disputes, allowing both parties to reach a mutually acceptable agreement with the help of a neutral mediator.

Litigation: If mediation fails or is not suitable, parties may resort to litigation. The dispute resolution process in Turkish real estate law involves filing a lawsuit, presenting evidence, and attending hearings. A competent real estate lawyer can guide you through the legal procedures and represent your interests in court.
