Some real estate owners are forced to change the type of real estate registry for their property, and this is usually done by the owners who want to convert commercial shops in Turkey to apartments, and although this is relatively easy, attention must be paid to some of the things that may cause Problems appear in the future.

This process can take a relatively long period of time, because the owner must persuade all the owners of apartments in the construction, but on the other hand, the formal procedures will not take a long time; and the owner of the property must possess the following documents in case he wants to change the type of the property in the real estate records :

  • The title deed of the property whose type is desired to change in the real estate registry
  • A copy of the identity card of the owner of the property, and this identity card must bear a copy of the person concerned.
  • Personal photos of the person who owns the property or the person on his behalf in an official capacity.
  • Written permits must be obtained from both the municipality and the state concerned with the property, to demonstrate that there is no obstacle to changing the property type.
  • In the first stage, approval must be obtained from the residents of the “neighbors” building to be able to start the procedures for transferring the type of real estate registry, in addition to the necessity of completing all the papers and documents necessary to start the formal procedures for transferring the type of registry.

Real estate registry restrictions

To find out if the property is subject to restrictions such as seizure, mortgage, confiscation, or otherwise, you should check with the Real Estate Registry Department and inquire about it there, given that this is not indicated in the title deed.

The real estate bond is based on the real estate registry data. If the real estate registry or the electronic real estate survey system does not contain this registration, the real estate bond has no value, and if it is certified and signed, then every real estate document that is not registered in the real estate registry is neither recognized nor registered as its transaction.

herefore, care must be taken in this matter, and not to make the mistake of buying a property in Turkey without examining the validity or nullity of the property title, from here comes the importance of the real estate consulting service in Turkey.

It is common for sale and purchase contracts that take place in the notary departments (Notre) to depend on the real estate bond, so it is necessary to ensure the authenticity of the bond in the real estate departments before signing the contract and pay the price of the property, because the conclusion of the contract in the notary’s office does not prove the validity of the real estate bond, so no The contract is valid and does not prove any right of the buyer to the property in question, the mentioned bond may be forged and illegal, and the bond may be original but the property owner has sold the property to several people before that, because the seller is not obligated to hand over the old bond to the Land Registry Department after the sale of the property, as well The loss of the real estate bond has no risk whatsoever Whoever finds it can act on the property.

Facilities in real estate registration procedures in Turkey

The real estate sector is one of the best sectors that generate profit in record time and with guarantees of high reliability in Turkey, given the great demand the country is witnessing to the purchase of real estate at the local and international levels, as the figures for the first half of the year 2017 show that more than one has been organized 600 thousand real estate records throughout the country.

Therefore, the procedures for transferring property and real estate reservations that are placed during the transfer of real estate ownership are very important and it was difficult for investors in most cases due to the routine procedures that the investor faces in the real estate registry departments (TAPU).

Therefore, the Turkish government has applied many facilities to the procedures for transferring property, as the real estate registry departments have witnessed several updates, starting from the application of a single window, passing through the use of the capabilities of the state’s website to access real estate records information quickly and reliably, and checking the validity of the information recorded in the restrictions automatically using this site.

Among the most recent of these facilities is the conclusion of an agreement between the General Directorate of Real Estate Records and the Turkish Agriculture Bank of the state, where it has become possible to perform procedures for placing real estate reservations on property and reservations related to real estate records, through all branches of the Agricultural Bank, “Zaraat Bank”.

The General Directorate of Real Estate Records launched a website that can be accessed by both the specialists in the Directorate and the branches of the Turkish Agriculture Bank; knowing that in the previous situation, the conversion procedures were started in the General Directorate of Real Estate Records, and payment procedures are implemented in the bank, and then Return to the General Directorate of Real Estate Records in order to establish a real estate reservation.

This matter led to a prolonging of the procedures for transferring ownership of the real estate registry, and it takes a long time; but in light of this new agreement, it has become possible to transfer ownership transfer data by the branches of the Agricultural Bank directly to the website belonging to the General Directorate of Real Estate Records, It is expected that the Turkish state will implement many other measures that guarantee the transfer of all transfers of ownership to digital circles, and the conclusion of agreements with many banks in the country within this framework.
