Data on real estate in Turkey is stored in the Cadaster (TAKBIS). The Cadaster of Turkey is under the jurisdiction of the General Department of Land Register and Cadaster.
Functions of the General Department:
- registration activities
- cadastral examination
- work with geodetic infrastructure
- performance of operations with the register
- licensing of topographic and cadastral offices
- regulation of broker’s real estate activities
The Turkish real estate register includes such subsystems as register of property, register of objects, forest register and others.
The register is contained in the integrated information system containing all basic data on rights and technical specifications of an object.
Online access to the register is possible only after user authorization.
Extracts from the Cadaster may be obtained only in a paper form with apostille on the basis of a power of attorney from the owner or legitimate interest (for example, court decisions).
Extracts in an electronic form from TAKBIS cannot be obtained.
Extracts from the Cadaster of Turkey may be used for:
- confirmation of title to real estate
- receipt of information about the real estate item
- debt collection
- analysis of prices for real estate
- other commercial and analytical purposes
*some data may be unavailable for certain items, or may be provided for a fee.
Receipt of documents in electronic form if necessary base information is available is normally carried out for one working day (if information is included in the electronic register). Approximately 2 weeks are required to obtain documents with apostille.
Extracts from the Real Estate Register are provided subject to the laws of Turkey and to the Law on personal data protection.
Moreover, you can order certified translation of your documents into any foreign language.
The requests shall be processed within one business day. Courier delivery of the apostilled extract shall be paid additionally according to the courier tariff rates.
Turkey joined the Hague Convention on simplified legalization of documents on May 13, 2004. On March 2, 2005 the Convention came into force.
Thus, documents issued in Turkey are subject to legalization based on the apostilling procedure, after certified translation such documents acquire full legal force on the territory of all other Hague Convention Member States.
As a rule of thumb, apostillation of extracts takes about two weeks.
