Buying Property in Alanya

The Turkish Government takes great pains to stimulate tourism. Since mid 1960 the order controlling of settlement has been altered in such a way that private persons from abroad are enabled to buy and descend property.

Please pay attention to the following points.

- From July 2003 the new TAPU law (4916, book 19, section 35) allows foreigners to purchase and sell property within the boundaries of villages also.

- According to this law on tourist settlement (nr. 2634, 8/E), the Central Chambers of Registration has to grant and entry the purchase of a purchased property. This applies particularly to areas outside the tourist regions.

-Excluded are, areas within military and safety zones. Without any exception, inquiries have to be made at the military authorities at Izmir. Contractual settlement and entry in the registry office can be realized only after permission of the military authorities. If a property in the same complex - as your purchase - has been sold to foreign people after the year 2011, the local registry office doesn’t need permission from the military authorities to right the title deed into your name.
