Research shows that real estate sales in Turkey have increased in recent years , which means that people who visit Turkey have decided to settle in Turkey for various reasons . Stability has increased the interest in investment opportunities within various Turkish cities , it has coincided with a facilitations provided by the Turkish government to foreigners continuously to encourage real estate investment , including amending some laws and opening the door to many nationalities for direct ownership for properties in Turkey . The real estate evaluation law in Turkey is designed to preserve the rights of foreign investors when buying a property in Turkey . What does real estate evaluation mean ? And what is its purpose ? What are the details and criteria of real estate valuation ? What are the latest updates to this law ?


The compulsory valuation decision for real estate was issued by the Ministry of Housing of Turkey and came into force in early 2019 . The law issued on 15 /02 /2019 under No. 1 / 2019 stipulates that real estate evaluation should be obtained by the competent authorities at the commencement of the procedures for acquiring the property or the title deed of the property purchased . Obtaining real estate evaluation was mandatory for those who are seeking to get Turkish citizenship by purchasing a property in Turkey , but the amendment to the law obliged anyone who sells a property of any kind to foreigners in Turkey to undergo the evaluation . A list of real estate evaluation companies who are approved by the Turkish government has been issued , and any real estate evaluation issued by any other company that is not on this list will not be accepted .

Previously , a foreigner who seek to buy a property in Turkey in order to get Turkish citizenship had to obtain a real estate valuation , which proves that the property is valued at $ 250.000 or its equivalent in Turkish Lira , but the Property Valuation Law has been updated to include all purchases of real estate in Turkey that is carried out by foreigners , to ensure they get real estate prices without any manipulation . The property evaluation report in Turkey is valid for three months from the date of the issuance of the report . There is a new update on this law to include all transactions of sales and purchases of real estate in Turkey , regardless of the parties involved , that is , if a Turkish citizen wants to buy a property , want to buy this property , whatever its price and whatever its type , must be subjected to real estate valuation . The move would increase the credibility of the Turkish real estate market .

In addition to the circulation of the Real Estate Valuation Act to all the buying and selling of real estate in Turkey , regardless of the nationality of the parties , a new amendment was recently required to put the price of the property in the treatment of the Tabu or Title Deed , in order to preserve the rights of parties involved in the sale and purchase of real estate in Turkey .

It is worth mentioning that there is no need to resort to the real estate valuation companies that are not licensed by the Turkish government , where reports issued by unauthorized bodies of the government are not accepted .


 Real estate valuation aims to protect foreigners from any manipulation of the price of real property . The competent authority evaluates the price of the property based on several factors , namely :

  • Legal status of the property : it is to search the legal documents related to the property , such as licenses , and to make sure that there are no impediments to the transfer of ownership between the seller and the buyer , such as the presence of a reservation on the Tabu , for example .
