Buying farm land / tarla under 10.000m2 with foreign passport

Hey guys,

At the moment, is it possible for foreigners to buy farm land that is under 10.000m2? I had a couple of real estate agents mentioning that it's not possible, however some say it is. I also can't find any info on that online, here are some resources that I checked:

Guidance for Foreigners / Rep. of Turkey Ministry of Foreign Affairs
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_Ownership_in_Turkey

On both sites I can't find any restriction like that. Is it possible to be a "local" thing? The area is Dalyan / Mugla.

Thanks!

Hi Thomas
Yes it is possible to to buy farmland as a foreigner, someone in our office is doing that at the moment. The laws have changed a few times, but at the moment it is allowed.

Personally I wouldn't touch farmland in Turkey, the dangling carrot is, "if it gets planning permission"..............its getting the planning permission though.
10.000m2 might sound massive but its not, of course you might be thinking of having a farm & living on it...............so check what size percentage build on the land. There's also issues if there are olive trees ect already on there...............homework required :-)

Hey spurs,

we have a copy of the Tapu which says land size 5000m2 and 75m2 + 75m2 build permission. I agree we have to do our homework which we will definitely do.

Why would you personally not touch farm land? Did you have any trouble getting a build permission?

We'd probably have 500-1000TL earnings per year from that 5000m2 so we don't really expect large profits from farming.

Years back the Turkish Government were literally giving those plots away & I do mean giving them away.
Turks tend to get mixed up between "farmland" & bloody rocky scrubland that nothing will grow on apart from olive trees.
The sales pitch is: Buy it, get planning permission & you become a millionaire, followed by look at the views, because many of these plots are on hillsides.............its BS. Turks/Kurds are all on that wish list for planning consent but it don't happen.
I bought land in Turkey & had loads of 10,000 sqm2 farmland thrown at me BUT I had good Turkish friends who told me it was worthless, nor would I get planning permission.

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

Hm yeah I heard of those pitches as well, although it was long time ago I'm not sure how much has changed

I will definitely have a farmer have a look at the land and have him do some analysis
The land has a connected road, water, electricity and telephone. It's within the Dalyan Delta

I wish you the very best of luck on it.
The land I finally settled for had planning permission...........I did though learn a lot on how the "system" works. Its bent.
