When a decision to buy a property in Turkey has been made, an official sales contract is drawn up and signed by an English speaking lawyer. The buyer gives power of Attorney to the Lawyer to let him/her look after all the legal procedures. The lawyer checks that the property is secure and if required can contact and cooperate with the buyer’s foreign lawyer. The lawyer follows all the procedures and secures the rights of the buyer until the Title-Deed is transferred to the buyer’s name. It takes about 6-8 weeks to transfer the Title-Deeds to the buyer’s name. The lawyer’s services will cost about 1 % of the property value.
