How Can a Pakistani Passport Holder Purchase Property in Turkey?

The answer is yes! It is a pretty simple process and is the same for all foreign buyers.

There are many Pakistani real estate buyers and vacationers who visit Turkey. According to the Association of Turkish Travel Agencies (TURSAB), 27,860 Pakistani visitors come to Turkey in 2021.

They fall in love with the country, thanks to its similar culture and history. As a result, they want to settle here due to the many opportunities it offers.

Under the legislation of Reciprocity Law, people from more than 50 countries were unable to own property in the country before 2012. But now, thanks to the modifications enacted by the Turkish government in 2012, all other nationalities can purchase all types of real estate in Turkey, except for Syria, North Korea, South Cyprus, Armenia, and Cuba.

The outcome of these modifications also drew a lucrative picture in the Turkish real estate market based on numbers. In 2021, property sales made to foreigners increased by 43,5% compared to the previous year and reached 58,576.

How Can I Purchase Property in Turkey From Pakistan?

The process of buying property in Turkey is very simple if you work with a good reputable real estate company that will guide you through every step. Foreigners who do not speak Turkish may have a hard time because of the language barrier. Therefore, expert guidance can help foreigners to fully understand and be aware of the ins and outs of the process.

Once your selection is narrowed down and the desired property is decided, there are a few documents required for deed transfer (Tapu). The title deed is a legal document issued by the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre. It proves you are the owner of the property.

The required documents for the transfer are as follows:

  • Passport or identity document of both the buyer and seller
  • Translation of the documents
  • The current title deed of the property
  • A property appraisal report of 3 months’ validity
  • Compulsory Earthquake Insurance (DASK)
  • Interpreter if one or both parties do not speak Turkish

If you do not have time to be physically present in Turkey, you can appoint a representative with a Power of Attorney to complete the transaction on your behalf.

Is It Possible to Get Turkey Citizenship by Investment for Pakistanis?
