Advice please - Parents owned property in Turkey, now passed away

Hi,
I'm new to Turkish Living and would really appreciate some advice. I have posted this already on this site but can't seem to find my post!! Unless i did it wrong.

My parents have owned a house in Calis for the last 8 years but sadly both suddenly passed away last year.

I have no idea where to begin with the property they owned in Turkey. I have had bits of advice from friends but would value your opinion.

I have found the title deeds for the house and have been told that i need to get a solicitor in England to give a solicitor in Turkey power of attorney. Is this correct and can anyone recommend a good solicitor in the Calis/Fethye area?

Also does anyone know how much and ho long the process of me transferring my parents property into my name - I have received a quote from one Turkish solicitor but i was shocked at the price he quoted me - i could do with a comparison.

Thank you.

Clare.

Yes i have just worked out how to find my threads! I asked Christine how she got on with her issue but didn't get a response from anyone.
Thanks,

I don't know about your property situation unfortunately but if your parents had a bank account do try to access it otherwise the authorities will freeze it. Don't tell the bank that your parents are deceased. Take it out in chunks at a time until you've cleared it.

Hi,
Thanks for that - i had thought about doing this but thought that i may end up in trouble for taking money out of the account after they have passed.
Thanks,
Clare.

Re: Advice please - Parents owned property in Turkey, now passed away

Clareom,

Inheritance issues and processes of immovable properties in Turkey shall be executed pursuant to the Turkish law even if they belong to foreigner nationals.

With this reason, you first need to verify where you're the only successor of your parents. If there is/are an/other successor(s) to share the property with you, you shall act in conjunction in the inheritance process pursuant to the Turkish civil code.

Assuming that you're the only one having the property; you shall first have a "determination of heirship" document from the notary in order to prove your heirship rights on the property. After having this document; you'll give a bill to the tapu office in order to transfer the ownership of the property in your name. I need to warn you that these processes are tiresome and don't eventuate that quickly. You'll need to wait for a few months for having the ownership of the property and you probably can not do these without having the support of an attorney in Turkey.

Hope this helps.
