Do you know Tapu?

Do you know Tapu? If you're planning to invest in Turkish property, Colordarcy says that you should.

Speaking to Property Shorooms , the investment company advises investors to become familiar with Turkey's title deed system, which is not automatically transferred to a new owner when a property is sold.

Turkish translators are recommended for transactions involving foreign, Colordarcy MD Loxley McKenzie says, "as the document is, as one would expect, written in Turkish".

Despite the efforts required to secure the Tapu for a new home, Turkish property is still very popular with overseas buyers, with demand and prices both rising as the country's economy continues to boom.
