Due Diligence on Property Purchases in Turkey- Payments, Property, and Procedures June 2020
Due Diligence on Property Purchase, Procedures and Payments in Turkey June 2020

June 16, 2020 How to buy a property in a foreign country? The people selling the property – agents, developers, and the solicitors they recommend- will usually assure you there will be ‘no problem’. Should you believe them? They make it seem so simple. Just like home.

There will be similarities between your home country and a foreign country like Turkey when it comes to buying. The general principles are the same. And that’s were it ends. The details are different, and that’s where the danger lies.

The risks are associated with a different language, culture, legal system, and of course, property system, known as a cadastral system. It may be that in your home country many of these risks have been removed because the various aspects have b...

Updated May 14 2021... If you do not speak Turkish, and do not search using the Turkish language, what you will find is pages and pages of websites designed only to lure non-Turkish speaking foreign buyers. These are the websites of english speaking agents. They do not do business with local Turkish buyers, because no Turk will deal with them. These agents want to do business in a specific way (that is to their advantage) that is only possible with unsuspecting foreign buyers. No local Turkish buyers will buy property this way.

The best that can happen is that your search takes you on a journey to view 10, 100, or perhaps 1,000 properties. Viewing 10,000 this way is a lot of work. But is this really the best way to find the pro...

How to Buy Property in Turkey for a Bargain

Updated May 14 2021... 

For bargain hunters, now is a very good time to buy property in Istanbul and Turkey. Many bargain buyers make the mistake of thinking the bargains are ‘there for the taking’. Deceptive agents will tell buyers that low Turkish Lira exchange rates mean that property prices are low. This is just a sales trick, because Turkish sellers also know what their property is worth in US Dollar and Euro, of course, because Turkish sellers have always valued their property in USD since the early 1990’s.

For a buyer that is investing in property in Turkey for citizenship purposes, it is essential that the steps below are followed. Otherwise, the investor may discover the property purchase for $250,000 has an appraised val...

Foreign buyers of Turkish properties often find themselves in a situation where what they thought they agreed to acquire is not what they are getting. In cases where the matter is not amicably resolved with the Turkish seller or developer, what alternatives are available?


Fortunately, legal action to reclaim pre-paid reservation deposits or off-plan deposits is not a fruitless course of action. In fact, it can be relatively cost-effective and swift, in comparison to other legal jurisdictions, such as the U.K. However, there are two caveats.


First, much depends on the specific details of the situation- which means that every case is different. Beware of general statements such as ‘ your funds can be reclaimed and returned’. Yes i...
