How to buy a property in Turkey?

When it comes to real estate buying, Turkey is easy to buy in and Celia Homes will help you through the entire buying process. Once you have signed a Tapu (legal registration), the matter will be sent to the authorities where they will approve your property purchase. For this you need your ID card or PASS, 4 photographs and your father’s and mother’s name. If you do not master the language, we have an interpreter who translates.


Since 2003, foreign citizens have been allowed to buy housing in places outside the tourist resorts, but special regulations from the Central Administration must be obeyed. Inside the lands of the Turkish military base, it is still forbidden for foreigners to buy real estate.

Registration to Tapu (legal registration)

Application for purchase. This is what you as a buyer need:

• 2 Photographs
• 2 Copies of your ID card / PASSPORT
• Your home address in your country and your parents’ and mother’s name

• 1 Photography
• 2 Copies of ID card / PASS
• Address of the company or owner

… Then the authorized translator will explain to you where the property is located and what characterizes it.
