When buying any property in the world, there is a golden rule for the buyer to follow: location!location! location! Here at Mozaic Real Estate, we are fully ready to support you in every step starting with choosing the best location until you reach your final goal. Before you start, we would like to inform you that our services are free of charge, i.e. you do not pay any commission to our office, and any fees you pay for the preparation of the needed documents, translations and the notary are directly done by you to the beneficiaries.
Once you decide to buy a property in Turkey, the first thing to do is to determine your budget and the purpose of buying this property, which can be summarized as follows:
The desire to invest in real estate and obtain the Turkish Citizenship.
The desire to have a home in Turkey for your holidays with your family.
The desire to move to live in Turkey with the family and establish your personal business and register your children in Turkish Schools and Universities.
To help you choose, we will try to summarize each selection separately.
According to the amended Turkish Citizenship Law on 18/9/2018, it is possible for any investor, who intend to get the Turkish Citizenship, to buy and invest in real estate in Turkey for an amount that exceed 250.000 US Dollars, with a legal commitment not to sell for three years, to purchase exclusively from a Turkish citizen or company, and to make all payments through bank transfers only.
The purchasing process is the same for the three points and we will summarize them later.
The required documents from your homeland to apply for the Turkish Citizenship are:
An official family legal record issued by the related governmental office.
Birth certificate for the husband, wife and children under 18.
Personal pictures for each one.
Photocopy of passports for all.
It is preferable for the husband to obtain a legal authorization from his wife that enables him to apply for the Turkish citizenship on her behalf and to follow up everything related to it.
All these documents must be translated by a legal interpreter in the country of origin and it is preferable to contact the Turkish Consulate there for a list of authorized translators to facilitate things for you. Usually the translator certifies the papers at all official departments, the last of which is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in your country. Once done, you will have to take an appointment from the Turkish Consulate in your country to authenticate all these documents.
As for the papers to be prepared in Turkey: preparing the citizenship file, obtaining the real estate expert’s report and taking an appointment to file the file with the related departments, we will be with you in all stages until the submission of the papers. After submitting the papers, you will receive a message on your mobile phone that the transaction is completed, usually 45 to 60 days after submitting the application you will also receive the result which is positive usually, and from then on you can consider yourself a Turkish Citizen with all Turkish Citizens rights.
If you want to have a second permanent home in Turkey, you must choose according to your need for the house and your budget. If it is for your frequent work trips, the best choice is to be as close as possible to the companies you deal with within the budget, or at least close to public transports to facilitate your movement. If it is a house for your vacation, it would be better to be within a complex where green spaces are available for the children, with all the recreational facilities or close to them, and the house should be close to a public transport station, malls and shops, etc. Finally, and as mentioned before, the best choice is always related to your budget.
One of the most difficult decisions in life is to move from one country to another with your family and to establish a new business or expand the one you have already established in your homeland. This difficulty is greatly reduced if you are moving to Turkey because of the job opportunities in many areas without the need of a sponsor or a Turkish partner. What we can offer, to help you make your decision, is to give you all the necessary information to facilitate your move and stay by your side until you reach your goal, starting with choosing an apartment, choosing a workplace, schools and universities, residency permits, registering for social security,etc.…
The process of buying a property in Turkey is much easier than in some Arab and European countries and it is done in steps that start in contacting us and ends upon receipt of the ownership document (Title Deed). Those steps are as follow:
Contact us on one of the numbers on the website or by e-mail and explain us your request.
We will send you through Whatsapp or e-mail different properties as per your request.
You can choose several properties to see, and we will schedule a visit for you to Turkey to check all these properties and decide what you like.
Once you decide, we will meet with the owner and then ask a notary to prepare the contract, and until that time we will translate your passport and obtain the financial number from the relevant departments here.
The contract is signed at a notary and with the presence of a sworn translator to translate the contract in full before signing, and a deposit is paid to the owner, and the value is recorded in the contract, until the completion of the registration of the contract with the real estate departments.
We will then get an appointment for you and the seller at the Real Estate Department to finalize the deal and transfer the property to your own name and receive the Title Deed. The property can be registered in the name of four people as maximum.
To help you feel safe it is important that youknow that the Real Estate Department does not give any appointments before making sure of the integrity of all papers and that the property is free of any mortgage, inheritance restriction or obligations in order to preserve the buyer’s right.
