  1. If you hold a valid Student RP you can within 60 days of expiry make a 'transfer' application [not renewal or 1st application] for a Short Term RP if thats what you want.
  2. Ted,it was stated that it's being trialled on us as the take up would be a lot less than if introduced to TC's as well,so they could iron out any problems in the system , but supposedly it will be for all sales/purchases maybe later this year.
  3. NEW PROPERTY VALUATION LAWS ….. As of 01/01.2020 Those who want to buy/ sell a property where a foreigner is involved will now have private companies calculate the real market value of their property and 4% of the real value will be paid in tax on the resulting valuation/sale. The new application will start from 1st January 2020. In addition, the valuation of the property by the appraisal specialist will cost approximately 450 to 500 lira, which will be paid by the seller. Agents, or sellers, will first apply to a valuation company to learn the true value of their home. For this they will pay a certain amount, (approx 450-500 lira) to the valuation company. They will then present the document they receive from the valuation company to the land registry [Tapu office]. At present the deed administration will receive a total of 3% of the title deed, 2% from the buyer and 2% from the seller. No more under valuing a property for tax purposes. How much is my house worth? When getting a home value estimate, you should consider two main types of valuation: Fair market value: Fair market value encompasses what your home looks like to prospective buyers looking at other homes in the area. Consider the sale price of a home that’s similar to yours (same number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage or outdoor space, say). Be careful some real estate agents are offering lower prices so that they can earn extra. Appraised value: While the appraised value of your home factors in comps, it differs from fair market value. To calculate appraised value, a licensed appraiser considers the location, size and condition of your home, and any renovations you’ve completed. The appraised value is what mortgage lenders look at when a borrower buys a home or refinances their mortgage. …………………… Valuation reports hold the following information; – All title deeds details – Location of property on a map with coordinates – Photos of the property – Prices of equivalent properties – Confirmation of the price – Current debt condition of the property – Confirmed acceptance with the land registry and cadastre general directorate.
  4. You missed ticking a box on a screen at the beginning of the online application stating you're under18/over 65 therefore you will not be asked for the mandatory health cover for your RP application.
  5. I'm assuming also she didn't include a ”Letter of Living Permission” tahhutname) Residing in a property without a Tapu or rental agreement signed by both parties & Notarized with her applications as her name wouldn't be on her friends rental agreement. Well there's nothing she can do now if the 2nd application is/has been refused as she is now way past the date she needs to exit Turkey as she's an overstayer . If as I suspect both applications have been rejected then she is now here illegally & must leave and pay the overstay fine due asap, to save her being given a ban on top of the fine.
  6. Hana,it's a national database,so a refusal in Izmir only days before another application in Istanbul will be flagged up. Also i'm assuming she has properties in her name in both cities.
  7. I can't answer that as there's no way of telling. She should speak with 157 again & ask what the application number is that has been rejected,then she'll know if it's her 1st or 2nd. Regardless i'd be surprised if the 2nd one isn't cancelled as Pendik will see immediately on the system that she made an application that was rejected only days before.
  8. Hana,if she's already been rejected she can't make another application for an RP of the same status [i assume hers was a touristic application] anywhere in Turkey for a minimum of 6 months. Also has her tourist visa time of 30 or 90 days expired?. If so again she can't apply with expired visa time. as she's here illegally. Thirdly choosing Istanbul is the worst city she could apply in,they refuse as many as they accept especially those holding non EU or non mainstream passports.
  9. Hi jpr ,you can apply for Turkish citizenship while in the UK,it's much easier and a lot quicker than applying in Turkey [usually 12-18 months] . Contact the Turkish Embassy in London for details.
  10. Hi Ken,i just watched the video on that site regarding importing a vehicle & found many anomalies ,there are things mentioned there that no longer apply, then i looked at the date of the site.... Revision Date : 30.10.2018 This link from my Surgery files holds the latest information on this topic. The top section is regarding importing for a max. of 2 years & the lower section is for semi permeant imports & putting onto 'M' plates. To bring a vehicle for up to 2 years costs nothing other than the Green Card insurance [if your present insurance does not cover Turkey ,as many do not]. https://www.ticaret.gov.tr/gumruk-islemleri/sikca-sorulan-sorular/english/accompanied-vehicles
  11. Very true Gorme. Officially only one person can get the property owner status,the other will be touristic. But if the 2 parties are husband & wife,the other party can still get a 2 year RP touristic validity by showing a noterised wedding certificate.
  12. Just to add to what Ken has written,make sure you bring over one of either schooling / college / university certificates.Without a certificate you will not be allowed to take the course.
  13. Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu spoke yesterday (16/04/2021) at the Evaluation Meeting for Combating the Coronavirus Outbreak. A warning to expats in Turkey, if you try to deceive the authorities during curfew hours by showing your foreign passport pretending to be a tourist, your residence permit or Turkish citizenship will be cancelled if caught. https://www.hurriyet.com.tr/gundem/son-dakika-bakan-soylu-acik-acik-uyardi-bunu-kim-yaparsa-ikametini-iptal-ederim-acimam-41790643?fbclid=IwAR31jWGMh4fC7I0_WH1WwcInpVW_JHI-SdJ4EOgN3H_tCELLV2oByABRhNc
  14. Postal applications have now finished .All applications are in person now in all offices in Istanbul.
  15. As a TC or foreigner you can only import one car into Turkey,if you wish to import another then the first one must be taken out .
