We help our clients to open a bank account at any stage of the purchase of real estate.
When registering, you will need your passport (most banks require a notarized translation of your passport), your Turkish tax identification number, and proof of address. The address can be confirmed by a residence permit (İkamet Tezkeresi) or a utility bill in your name. This utility bill may even be from your country. They should see your name and the address of your home on the invoice.
It is very important to have a good relationship with your bank. We recommend that our clients work with only one bank so that you can establish a good relationship with your bank. The more transactions you make through the bank, the better the bank will recognize you and the better they will welcome you.

From 02/15/2019, when registering the right of ownership, a mandatory assessment is required (expertise) report on each sale of overseas property. The report was prepared by two SPK authenticated and approved assessors. One of them checks plans, registration information in the municipality and in the cadastral chamber. They visit the property to make sure you buy the one they show you. The controller double-checks the correctness of the comparison of housing prices and the register. Both experts are sworn valuation experts.
The government wants to have the market value of the property rather than relying on the declared value. Previously, the seller claimed a much lower sales amount to avoid paying higher tax. Therefore, the valuation report is used as an indicator of the property for tax calculation.
