Title Deed (Tapu) Home / Title Deed (Tapu)

Title deed or Tapu, as it is called in Turkish, is an official registration of an acquisition of real estate and it is the only proof that you are the owner of the property you are buying. At Tapun you will find details such as the address, the date on which the confirmation for Tapun was made, who is the buyer, who is the seller, and details of the share of the property included in the purchase of real estate in Turkey. What matters is what’s in the cadastre. In the case of a lost Tapu, you can always get a new one, of the Tapu-office, where you have it from the beginning.
