Online resources? Be careful, many tips come from agents or people with self interests.
I will say this though: I had three villas built AND done site visits at least twice a day. You need to show the builders who is the "patron" & who pays their wages. Turkish builders do tend to have their own "ideas", nicking a meter here or a yard there. I was also advised not to use builders supplied by the architect (which I never) but I did keep the architect on board.........I could tell you a thousand & one things..............most importantly, be there if you have anything built, if not you tend to end up with four washing machine points, three dish washer points & a shortage of sockets :-) They really are in a world of their own when it comes to building work. But ya just have to laugh & luv em.

Yes it truly was an adventure but first & foremost it was watching our money. We survived to tell the tale but along the way & on here there are many who never. Our "one shot" at it worked but looking back Lady Luck was with us. We could have been netted on several occasions, if I done it again now I would do it the same way BUT with more sureties from those I had to deal with. There were times when it was, "cash up front" & that's the vulnerable part of the project (any project).

Check & double check on everything you do & everything you pay for.
Advice on here is always free & many know what they're talking about.....use them.

Re: Buying farm land / tarla under 10.000m2 with foreign passport

Hey Spurs,

I got another question about farm land specificly, if you don't mind.
My wife's cousin (turkish real estate guy) told her that after buying the farm land, we have to plant and register every tree on the land within 2 years. Does it mean that they also have to be productive?Will the authorities come for regular checks if someone is working on the land?
Do we have to sell the crops?

My wife is currently studying (abroad), so we can't really manage and cultivate the land until she's finished.

On the other way, I don't really want to pass up on the deal. The land's size and location is exactly what we're looking for and the TL/m2 is really good for that area.

Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

EDIT: Legally, the land is ok it has build permission and everything else according to her cousin. We trust him, know him for over a decade.

I wouldn't trust anyone where money is involved.
A Friend of mine's brother had a house built on 'Tarla'. The architect was my friend's SiL. He overcharged for lots of things including double the price for bags of cement. Also the building was supposed to be an agricultural building, which it wasn't, so the end wall had to be knocked out after they'd been living in it for a year to allow barn doors to be inserted.
The family feud is still ongoing.

When we had tarla and built on it you only had to get Muhktar's permissions, changed greatly since then! If it has build permission why is it not classed as Arsa rather than tarla? I would question that. Also is there permission for a habitable building or just a farm building, for animals?

Your wifes' cousin is correct in the fact that you have to have a 'plan/project' to build on village land at the minute in most provinces in Turkey (as a foreigner). You get 2 years to complete this project, ie get the farm up and running, vineyard productive etc. Yes, they will check up on you as if you dont comply they can come along and take your land off you. This was direct from the tapu office albeit last year, so may well be out of date by now!

Good Luck

Sara

Hand on heart mate I don't know that much about it, I had the warnings & I took heed.
There's was a post on here (I think) many moons back. Someone bought a "tarla plot" & it had an orange grove on it. The purchase went through only to find out afterwards that the orange grove was owned by someone else. Not only that but they had to pay peoples wages who done the picking & "looked after" the grove. The landowners (Brits) thought they were going to have a little business of flogging oranges................it was a load of pips :-) The "grove owner" offered to buy the land from them for peanuts..........not sure how it all turned out.

Wife..............cousin.................emlak.... ...................BE CAREFUL, family tends to be a by-the-way with Brits when it comes to land or property in Turkey. Cousins are for life, business isn't & never has been.

Thomas, welcome to TLF, this land that you are thinking of sounds interesting. What is the price per Metre square?

Citizenship & buying tarla land

When you have (or if) you have passed your citizenship, are you allowed to buy tarla land. Also if you own a property & land (tarla) & have it in a company can you then own it in your own name if you become a citizen.
