Successfully Buying a Property in Turkey

Below are some brief points in purchasing property in Turkey.

Who Can Own Property in Turkey?

First the "reciprocity principle" must apply between the country of the person wishing to obtain acquisition of ownership of Turkish real estate. In other words, if a Turkish citizen can become the owner of real estate in the UK, then the same right applies to a UK citizen in Turkey.

Selling Turkey Property
Capital gains made from the sale of a Turkish property will be taxable in Turkey if the real estate owner is a Company.
Individuals do not have to pay capital gains on real estate, provided they have owned the Turkey property for one year.

Property & Conveyancing in Turkey
Persons wishing to buy property in Turkey need to appoint a lawyer in Turkey.

In most areas of Turkey, finding properties to rent or buy isn't difficult, providing your real estate requirements aren't too unusual.
Turkey Property prices and rents in Turkey vary considerably depending on the region and city.
For example, a property rented outside a municipality will cost 75.00 a month, and 150.00 a month in most municipalities on the Mediterranean and Aegean coast.

Turkey Residents Visas
If you are relocating to Turkey for more than six months then you are well advised to apply to the Turkish Government Office for a residency in Turkey.
They will issue a document for you to present to the Turkish police near your new property who in return will process the application.

Rent (Kiralik) or buy (Satilik) Turkey real estate
If you're planning to stay in Turkey for a year only then renting is usually the best solution since the costs associated with purchasing a property can be 10% of its value.
However with the upsurge in the popularity of Turkey as a holiday destination buying property in Turkey is a safe and good investment.

Furnished or unfurnished
Most rental Turkey properties are let unfurnished.
Furnished properties are difficult to find and generally poorly equipped.

Rents for a 2-bedroom apartment in in the south of Turkey can be £175 - 200 per month, while a 3-bedroom property can be around £200 - 250 per month. In addition, you might pay a real estate agent up to 1 months rent.

Types of Turkey property
Many Turkish families live in communal property developments where rents are lower than in the town centers.

Buying a property in Turkey
