Buying and Selling Real Estate in Turkey (Updated)

International Lawyers Network


1. Agreement Types -

Pursuant to Turkish laws, a real estate sale and purchase agreement shall be in an official form and the transfer of ownership of real estate is only possible with an official deed and registry, which is signed at the Land Registry Directorates.

It is also possible to sign a real estate sale commitment agreement that sets forth the conditions of the sale before a notary public. It is advisable to annotate this agreement to the relevant land registry records to assert personal rights arising from this agreement to third parties. In case the real estate has been acquired by third parties, a lawsuit for the nullification of title deed can be filed. However, if the sale is not effectuated within five years of the annotation, the annotation will be automatically removed by the Land Registry Directorates pursuant to the Land Registry Law.
