How is the general perception of locals toward foreigners?

To warmly welcome any guests is an inseparable part of the Turkish culture. You can be sure that you will feel just as good as your country (if not more comfortable) any time you visit Turkey.

Is it necessary to learn the language?

To learn the language is completely up to you. It is not mandatory to learn the language since in places where we operate main languages are widely spoken - English, German, Russian. 

Do the places where you operate have an easy access all year round? 

The nearest airport to the location where we operate is the Antalya International Airport, which operates all year round. There are many flights from and to major European airports to Antalya all year round. 

How does the health sector in Turkey look like?

The Turkish health care works with three different types of hospitals: public hospitals, university hospitals and private clinics. Public as well as private hospitals fulfill international standards in relation on equipment quality and specialist knowledge. Most hospitals have agreements with international insurance companies.

There are many international banks in locations where we operate (HSBC, Fortis) but also Turkish banks with offices in Europe (Is Bank, Garanti, Akbank). 

How long do I have to wait before getting my title deed?

It takes app. 3 days for you to have your title deed starting from the day you purchase a property in Turkey.

What about inheritance?

Unless not mentioned otherwise, in case something happens to the title deed holder, the property is automatically inherited by the spouse or the children To make amendments on the title deed would involve legal assistance. 

Can I take my money back to my country if I sell my property?

Yes, there are absolutely no restrictions for you to take your money back to your country of origin, except the capital gain tax that you will eventually have to pay. 

Do I have to pay capital gain tax if I sell my property?

According to Turkish laws, you do not have to pay capital gain tax if you sell your property after 5 years of ownership.

What are the local taxes I will have to pay?

There are a couple of municipal taxes to be paid twice a year, but very minimal compared to major European cities.

This is possible of course. If you do not live permanently in your property, then the renting during your absence is even a good source of income. You will also have to pay tax on rent, should you decide to rent your property in Turkey.

Except the title fee expense, there are absolutely no hidden costs in our offers. The price you see is the final price.

Is the import of vehicles or furniture possible?

The import of vehicles and furniture is possible. However, the costs of transport, customs and security obligations are very high; therefore it is recommendable to buy the furniture or car in Turkey.

What is ISKAN?

ISKAN is a living space proof that every real estate must have. This document is given by the local authority and proves that the real estate has received all necessary approvals and is used for residential purposes, and is allowed to live there permanently. ISKAN is also required for new registrations of electricity and water.
