The Buying Procedure for Property Buyers in Turkey

Property Inspection trip

Before you come for a Memoshome viewing trip to Turkey, we recommend you to visit your bank and get informed about all available financing options for buying your dream home on the Turkish Riviera, in the Aegean Region, or Istanbul.

Memoshome Company organizes individual viewing trips tailored to the requirements and preferences of our clients.

Signing the sales contract

When you decide on buying a property in Turkey, we will draw up the purchase and sale contract. The contract includes all necessary information about the real estate agency, the buyer, the property features, and the property financing.

The payment plan varies according to the type of property and an agreement with the developer/owner. The general rule of purchasing is that the full purchase price must have been paid by the time the buyer receives the Tapu, Title Deed.

Power of Attorney

To make things easier for you as the buyer, we recommend you give us the notarized power of attorney. This way we can act on your behalf and sign all documents needed for the buying process, register the title to your name, water, and electricity counters, etc.

At the Notary Public, a sworn translator will interpret for you the written text of the power of attorney into your language. If there is more than one buyer, each name and personal signature must be present on the paper.

Tax number / Bank account

Our employees will help you with all the practical matters, such as obtaining a tax number and opening a personal bank account in a Turkish bank.

Tapu (Title Deed)

After the completion of all procedures required for the process of transferring property ownership, all necessary documents are submitted to the office of property registration Tapu and Cadastre of the city and the district where the property was acquired. For a foreign citizen, registering and obtaining the Tapu, Title Deed, takes 1-3 days.
