Changing ownership on Tapu

I want to change the name on my Tapu to my son in law. Can this be done in England with a Turkish Lawyer or does it have to be done in Turkey?

The only way it can be done without you all (BOTH) being present in Turkey is by you giving someone POA (Power of Attorney) to act on behalf of you both.
And don't forget even though changing the name you will still be liable for the sales tax on the property because it will be looked on as selling the property to your in law, as it's only your word that it will be a gift with no cash changing hands.

EDIT, sorry but you will need separate POA's for both yourself and your son-in-law because the same person can't represent both of you at the same time because of a 'conflict of interest. As for cost I would suggest you think in the region of £600 for each POA. Plus £125 for the UK notary charge and £51 for the document to be Apostilled and postage over to Turkey.
IF you are interested I can give you full details of someone I trust and have used previously (Hüseyin Demirel) without any problems, he will also arrange the second POA (his daughter) for you along with a copy of the POA that you will need to take to your Notary in the UK just let me know and I will post his details.

It would be a mission to do that from the UK & expensive. If your son in law is Turkish it can be done in no time in Turkey itself.
I would guess a Turkish lawyer here would just pass it down the line to a lawyer in Turkey both earning from you, POAs involved etc. What area in Turkey is the property?

The property is just outside Bodrum and my son in law is English. What would be the cost do you know?

If you are over 75 you will not have to pay the tax.

Re: Changing ownership on Tapu

Do I actually need a lawyer? I read that it can be done without one & we just need to go to the Tapu office. Is that right and if so what would I need to take with me.

NO, But you do need someone knowledgeable, maybe someone like Sami Isik.

EDIT
For help & assistance: =
Sami Işık He works out of the Aviva office next door to the Notary office just off Ataturk Blvd.
05072451743 If you don't drive then get a taxi and ask for "No-Terr Bir. he should be able to take care of everything
from filling out the applications to going to the tax office and the Tapu office. A typical previous charge has been 240TL

Re: Changing ownership on Tapu

Thanks so much. I will follow that up. The other thing is that my photo is not on my Tapu. I didnt realise that it should be. Is that a problem?

I don't know but Sami will be able to sort or advice you on that. The missing picture may not be the problem but more so that the official stamp on the picture is missing.

When was that law brought in ??


As residency applications/renewals are asking in our area, Mugla, for updated Tapus I had to do this from one without a photo and it was no problem
