At GOLDEN HORN LAW we help identify possible incidents when buying a property in Turkey.

  • Unregistered property.

  • Double sale of the same property.

  • Property built without licenses.

  • Rural houses built on land where building is not allowed.

What are the costs involved when buying a property?

Buying property in Turkey is not as straight forward as one would expect, and that is why we always recommend you to hire a good real estate lawyer that speaks your language.

The costs should always be made clear at the beginning of the purchase, and this includes all taxes that should be paid on the property.

In a straightforward case the following will apply:

  • Property Price
  • Lawyers fee
  • Appraisal
  • Portion outside mortgage
  • Taxes
  • Notary Fees
  • Property registry Fees

Satisfied Clients

The level of understanding was important as I had no knowledge of the subject matter. Ilkay responded to my needs by providing a quick turnaround and explained each step to ensure I understood each stage of any hurdle we came up against. I liked the fact that the channel between us was always open and that I could contact Ilkay for clarification if needed. The level of service was as I would have expected from a lawyer of this calibre and I can truly say that I did receive value for money. I have already asked for further advice on another separate matter and would have no hesitation in recommending Ilkay to potential clients.

I asked Ilkay to renew the “Residence Permit” for me and my family. At first we collaborated with another person that proved to be incompetent, didn’t provide us the full list of necessary documents, as a result by the time of expiration of the first visa the renewal was not received. Anna knows all ins and outs of dealing with the Turkish bureaucracy. With his help we promptly collected everything that was missing, and our visa was renewed for two years as it should have been. I am thankful to Ilkay for the qualities that she shown during our collaboration: Clarity, punctuality, efficiency and willingness to help.
