I am Nicky from France. I started my deed application process through an official real estate agency mid of Feb 2012. Beginning of May 2012 I was told my deed was ready but when I arrived in Turkey the famous law was published in the meantime and everything has been suddenly blocked. Since then I could not obtain any further information neither from the local deeds office nor from the main deeds office in Ankara despite my many attempts. Dear Jade I would be very interested if you could get more detailed information about those who said their purchasing process was recently accepted.
I am just surprised that not more people/real estate agencies are complaining about the situation since probably a lot of real estate transactions are currently blocked exactly in the middle of the high-season period - meaning many foreigners might reconsider switching their investment to other countries if situation was to last even longer.
If you are in a situation like I am, you might also report your complaint to the Main Deeds Office in Ankara (they reply by email within 2-3 days). Probably it will contribute to alert them on the serious situation caused .

It is certainly very frustrating and bad practise not to have got this law sorted out before the old one lapsed. Let's hope it's sooner rather than later that they get it sorted out.

I'm afraid I'm not in contact with the Brits as I think they've departed from here in the meantime. This was just a one-off I believe so you'll just have to wait until the new law comes into being. Patience!
