The property registration procedure in Turkey is different than in many other countries. The official property transfer does not take place in the Notary office like in Europe or other countries. Instead, the buyer and seller together need to go to the Land Register Office ( Tapu Dairesi ) where the property registration transaction is completed. The buyer as well as the seller has to be present in person at the Tapu office in order to sign the sale papers. After signing the contract, The Land Registry Office issues the “Tapu” for the new buyer of the property. Tapu is the Turkish name of Title Deed. This is a legal documentation and the only proof of the property ownership in Turkey. All Tapu Transactions are only made by the Land Registry Office ( Tapu Müdürlügü ) of the relevant area where the property is .After receiving the “TAPU”, the buyer becomes the owner of the property. On the Tapu, the price of the property, the name of the owner and some other cadastral figures are all mentioned. Click here to learn about Tapu Terms
