Signing the sales contract

When you make a decision about buying a property in Turkey, we will draw up the purchase and sale contract. To secure your property, a minimum deposit of 1,000€ is paid when signing the contract. This amount is deducted from the purchase price. The contract includes all necessary information about the real estate agent, the buyer, the seller, the property and the payment plan.

The payment plan varies according to the type of a 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 to give us the notarized power of attorney. This way we can act on your behalf and sign all documents needed for the buying process, to register the title to your name, to register water and electricity meters, 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.
