Fines for Tapu

Hi,
Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but Ive read about people being fine 1000TL if they donít get their Tapus sorted out.

I read residents who have been issued with a tapu with a cross in the middle box need to obtain a certificate of habitation from the Belediye to support the process for the tapu to be ticked in the left hand box.

Once armed with a certificate of habitation, residents need to decide on how they go about getting the final process completed.

We had the Cross in the middle of our Tapu, and the Company who we bought the Apartment from got the Tapu changed for us to the left hand side.

The Tapu is exactly the same as the Original one we received but this new one does not have our photos on it.

I have 2 questions hopefully you will be able to help me with?
Firstly is this new Tapu legit? And secondly do I need to do anything else with it? Because it mentioned getting the final process completed, if so what is the final process?

Re: Fines for Tapu

We had a similar worry about a Tapu with no photos on it and asked the Tapu manager. He said that it was not a requirement as all of the information needed to prove ownership was on their computer / files. But some people liked to have a photo on them and if they want they can!

The process is similar in principle to UK when you're getting a house built. Briefly:
  • You start with a Tapu for a piece of land.
  • You get planning permission for a house.
  • You build the house.
  • The council comes round to check that what you've built conforms with what you got permission for.
  • They check that all required services have been connected and then they give you permission to live in it.
  • You update your tapu to include the house on it.
Many people over many years didn't bother with the last item, to save money. About three years ago the government tried to force everyone to comply by putting an end date on getting it done, with a fine for those who didn't.
Then they backtracked.
The bit I don't know is what the current position is! But we decided to do it anyway about two years ago as the surveyors' fees and other charges wasn't so bad then, and it wouldn't become an issue when we come to sell.

A couple of years ago when we did it is was no more than 100 lira per property, I really can't remember the true amount because it wasn't significant. But as I say, I don't know the present situation.

Re: Fines for Tapu

Cheers Lez,
When I'm out in a couple of weeks I will enquire, and sort it out when I'm back out in September/October if its not to much.
I would have thought I would have had more feed back on this issue, because I would have thought their must be loads of People who have not sorted it out?

Re: Fines for Tapu

Hi Steve, we are going through the process now, the prices quoted to me are-
300 TL to have a surveyor draw up plans for our block of apartments (we are a 2 bed in a
block of 6, and this is the price for the whole block)
Some tax - less than 50tl
Possibly interpreter cost?

Still going through the process so final costs not to hand.

Re: Fines for Tapu

When we finally had our Habitation early last year our Emlak who we bought from sorted all that out for us, another Tapu with the tick in the right box and didn't charge us anything PS a good Emlak shouldn't charge you anything to get all you paper work sorted out the cost of all that should be included in your price you paid for your property.
