Legal Support - Lawyer in Turkey

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

Purchasing a new house is a courageous step; however, taking extra measurements is always a good idea.

A good lawyer will assist you with the following property legal services:

  • Researching the legal status of the property.

Since you are new in Turkey, it’s always good to have trustworthy solicitor support knowing all real estate market laws in the country. With TERRA Real Estate, the client's interest comes before anything. With our years of experience in the Turkish real estate market, we ensure you buy your property from liable owners following all legal processes to avoid any future complications. This is all secured with a Due Diligence report prepared by the lawyers.

The lawyer also checks the Title Deed, property taxes, and other property laws.

The following aspects are checked to secure your rights and safe purchasing;

Mortgage debt, tax debt, extra charges, existing freehold, checking the liability of the property's owner compared to the title deed, lien, building license, and planning permits.

  •  Deposit and reservation contracts

Reserving a property and paying a deposit are also secured by a contract that includes the agreed terms including the client's name, reserving payment amount, and terms. Thus, your lawyer will follow up on all real estate transactions, protecting both the client's and owner's rights.

  • Property contracts

Several scenarios could take place when preparing a contract for purchasing Turkish properties, where the real estate lawyers follow.

a) If a reservation contract has been prepared before, the notary will include the previous terms agreed on in the reservation contract and the new contract will be prepared according to that.

b) In case no previous contracts have been prepared, the notary will prepare one for purchasing a Turkish property with terms suiting both the buyers and sellers.

c) In case a draft of the Turkish property purchase contract has been prepared before, the notary will review the contract, making sure all rights for the client and seller are preserved and according to legal terms.

Legal Fees and Expenses

Different lawyers may require different prices depending on the price of the property and the sale case. In Turkey, the service expense for lawyers is a minimum of 1750 USD + 18% VAT, making up around 1% of the property purchase price.

Purchasing your property with TERRA Real Estate, we follow up on all your legal processes without any lawyer’s fees. However, if you wish to have your lawyer independently, we have a list of English-speaking lawyers who can work independently of us.
