When buying property in Turkey, you will need:
- Your passport or National ID Card
- Four passport sized colour photographs (4cm x 6cm)
- A Foreign Identity Number and tax number (Yabanci Kimlic Numarasi)
- Evidence of having a Turkish bank account (eg a statement or account book)
If using an agent to act on your behalf, you will also need your agent’s passport or ID Card, four passport sized colour photographs (4cm x 6cm) of the agent and your power of attorney.
As part of our sales service we will take you to register for a Yabanci Kimlic Number (Foreign Identity number) should you not already be a Turkish resident. We will also arrange for you to obtain a tax number at the local tax office should your Turkish bank of choice require one in order to open a Turkish bank account.
It may be possible to open a Turkish bank account in your native country, but in most cases clients tend to wait until they come to Turkey and open an account locally with our assistance if so requested. The procedure is often completed in a few hours and simply requires filling in the bank’s account application form, two forms of ID (eg driving licence, passport, utility bill to prove your address in your of country of residence) and your local tax office number. Alternatively, you can appoint someone you trust with power of attorney to carry out the procedure for you.
