In case a foreigner purchases a real estate in Turkey, it takes him/her 7-10 weeks to be registered with the land register office. The reason for this is that
the local land register office shall do some formalities (such as application to
the highest military authority within the area). There is a rumor saying that application documents will no more be sent to the local military authority in 2006. Thus, foreign property buyers will assume shorter time for procedure completion. Upon the arrival of the response from the relevant authorities, title transfer transactions will be done within one day.
A Legal (Sworn) Interpreter is required to attend title transfer transaction. Interpreter’s fee is 50 €.
