Tapu Title Deed
The title deed in Turkey is called “Tapu”. It is an official and legal document to prove the ownership rights of a property. It registers the location, owner, type, size information of the property.
The authority of the title deed registry and archive is the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre (Tapu ve Kadastro Genel Müdürlüğü – TKGM). There are title deed offices of TKGM in every city in Turkey.
All properties are freehold in Turkey. Once you own a property in Turkey, you have full ownership rights on it and your family has the right of inheritance (succession) after your death.
