Go to your tax office with a copy of the picture page of your passport, fill in a little form which includes your name and address - which could be at a hotel, for instance, if you don't yet own a Turkish property - and bring some form of acknowledgement that your parents are your parents, with their names printed on some official document, and on the form the tax office will ask you to fill in, you must state both your parents' names - whether alive or dead, it doesn't matter... 3 working days later you can open a Turkish bank account. I suggest Yapi Kredi bank in Side. I have been with them for over 10 years and cannot fault them... all there are very efficient, youngish and good looking! Only one of the ladies speaks any English though. I am currently getting 13% interest on my TL monthly deposit account at Yapi Kredi bank. I suggest you go to your bank in the UK and ask that they transfer the money to the Turkish bank - - so don't do it when you get to Turkey or it will be very time consuming for you, at the very least, and non-comprehensible at the worst. Of course you COULD take the cash to the Tapu Office instead if you wish to... totally up to you ...

Once the monies are received by the seller, you can go to the Tapu Office in Manavgat with a translator and have the Deeds which they will put in your name. The emlak (estate agent) is to be paid 3% but for that she will organise the translator, the Deeds to be put in your name, the electricity and water in your name too, and anything else that crops up along the way in this regard. You do not need a solicitor at all. No-one I know who has bought or sold a property in Turkey - anywhere - has had a solicitor ... just the emlak/estate agent ... after all, that's what they are paid the 3% for - and that's by both the seller and the buyer...

x Angela in Cardiff and Side ... 6 months in each ... lucky me eh?! x
Here is what advice from the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office on Property Purchases in Turkey
You are strongly recommended to obtain the services of an independent lawyer before committing yourself to purchasing property or paying a deposit or the property’s full costs. We define “independent lawyer” as one who has no connection with either the seller or an agent of the seller: an agent can be an estate agent or anyone acting on behalf of the seller.

When you engaged with an emlak solictor who do they work for you or the emlak they going to take their instructions from the emlak which may not always be in your best interest
