Tapu all correct - maybe not

After all the horror stories about Tapus I decided to go and check ours out.

We bought in 2001 so foolishly we thought that nothing could be wrong with it.

We were told that our Tapu had a block on it from 2003 and if wanted to sell it we could not do so.

WHAT THE WHAT!!!!!!!!!

We were given a case number and off we went to the Tax Office to be told it had nothing to do with non payment of taxes, we knew this because we had already paid them but better to be safe than sorry.

Next off to the Court House. The two men, one spoke Turkish and the other was Clerk to Court, were most helpful and told us that the original owner who we had bought off in 2001 had gone to Court in 2003 to put a block on our property, even though they had sold it to us in 2001!!!!!

Hold on said we how can that be it hadn't been there's for two years how can they do that. To be fair they had no idea either and we still haven't had a satisfactory answer.

The good news is after we had a letter written in Turkish to the said judge asking him to unblock the Tapu, this he did and even better news it didn't cost us a penny. Took the relevant paperwork to the Tapu Office and if we so wish we can now sell.

So the moral of the story is even if you think your Tapu is all correct, maybe it isn't.

Re: Tapu all correct - maybe not

Well done for checking!
The system is so open to abuse....
Which reminds me of another story , where two men of the same Turkish name were confused, needlessly...
One had a small debt and the bank asked Tapu office if there was property in xxx name. Yes said Tapu- and gave the details of the OTHER man (only name the same not date of birth/ birthplace DUH!) ... a year or two on.. the baliffs arrive at the door of the debtless couple...
A few scarey weeks and it was sorted out.....
