DECIDED TO BUY PROPERTY, WHAT TO DO
Once a property has been chosen, You must carry out the searches on the Title Deeds and ensure that it's clear of debts and that the seller is actually the person detailed on the Title Deed.
Thereafter a deposit (usually 10% - 20% of the asking price but sometimes as much as 75% for new build properties) is placed in a bank account in Turkey (by electronic transfer) and paid to the seller on your behalf.
There is then a wait of 3 - 6 months for the paperwork to be cleared by the officials & army departments in Izmir, Ankara, Mugla. As soon as the Title Deeds Office receives clearance from the army department confirming that the property in question is not within an military area, the remaining balance plus any additional costs are transferred to the same bank account and the Title Deeds can be exchanged.
Unlike the UK, it is not necessary to use a solicitor to conduct the conveyancing for you. The Title Deeds formalities can all be carried out in your absence, by leaving a Power of Attorney with your solicitor.
Should you decide to use solicitor, you need to go to notary to arrange this Power of Attorney (there is an official translator within the notary's office to ensure that you understand the Power of Attorney),-open a bank account in your name and take the necessary photos required for the paper work.
