What Do The Solicitors Do for You?

1. Checking the Legal Documents of a Property

The property purchasing process can differ by country. There are different requirements and standards in every country. Since most of the foreign buyers do not have any experience in the property purchasing process in Turkey, we recommend you to deal with a trusted and professional real estate company, which has several branch offices and experience of years.

The most important aspect of purchasing a property is finding the right party and ensuring that the seller is selling the property that he is showing you. These issues and your money can be secured by lawyers with a Due Diligence Report.

a) When you decide to buy, the initial checks in the Title Deed registration office are carried out by an estate solicitor to cover if there is; basement, mortgage debt, lien, tax debt, other debts, and charges; if it is freehold or not; checking the own fact of the property as written on the title deed.

b) Solicitors also check the related licenses such as building licenses and planning permits.

2. Paying Deposit and Sales Agreement

The reservation contract secures the property in the name of the customer and guarantees the negotiated price and terms of sale. It also illustrates that the payment made as deposit payment secures the contract terms agreed upon.

3. Real Estate Purchase Contract in Turkey

A solicitor can make the buying process more secure and comfortable for his clients by assisting them in the cases below:

 • If the parties have not signed a contract,  the solicitor shall draft the purchase contract to the satisfaction of all parties with legitimizing their demands.
