Hi all, I wonder if anyone can recommend a solicitor in the UK who can help with sorting out a property in Turkey?
The person on the TAPU has passed away. In his English will he has left the property to his common law partner my mother. In Turkish law the property goes to his children. They would have to come to Turkey to sign over power of attorney or to sell the property. This is not really a viable option due to commitments. Is there a way for them to sign over power of attorney or sell the property from here in the UK?
As the great Oscar Wilde once said..."There's only one thing worse than being talked about, and that's not being talked about."
I believe the children can appoint a POA in the UK,the POA document[s] would then need apostilling in the UK,then the appointed POA would need to come to Turkey,get the document[s] translated & noterised before they can be put in front of the Turkish courts.

My understanding is that the property has to pass to the children first and then a POA done to then transfer to common law wife.
Until it is transferred to the children presumably through the Turkish courts then they do not yet own it and therefore cannot transfer it.
At least thats how I read it.
Don't believe those who by wealth are sheltered from reality.
