According to new regulations by the Turkish General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre (TKGM), since the 15th of February 2019 real estate appraisal report is obligatory on every foreign property sale (this rule will soon apply to all real estate sales).

Thanks to this regulation, you are assured that you pay the right amount of property taxes while purchasing the property. Additionally, this regulation provided by the Turkish government aims to protect all foreign property buyers from possible frauds.
