  1. I read on earlier articles that start date should be day after visa expires. I would like to start on an earlier date. I called 157 who advised me I can apply now( date of entry from UK to Turkey 18th May). I would prefer to have a start date around middle of July. Does anyone know if this would create any problem? I know I can apply for touristic reason. As I own property in Turkey would using " immovable property" create any additional scrutiny of application?
  2. Thanks Ken for all your help. Much appreciated.
  3. Hi ken I was just reading through your guide to STRP and note there is mention of " tapu devam belgesi,". is this a different document/notation from Tapu Kaydi Ornek?
  4. Thanks Ken. I thought I was going to have to visit two offices- Tapu and Municipal. After reading your article I see both can be obtained at the Tapu Office! Thanks a lot for all the good work you do on this site. I think you must have helped thousands of people find their way around the systems here. Much appreciated!
  5. Hi Ken no problem. your advice was sound. The notification email only showed your opening remarks. When I accessed the site to see there was no posting. I was just interested in reading the rest of your post. No luck with access to e-Devlet. I tried to make and E-Appointment at the tapu office as tapu needs notation as I bought over 2 years ago. I got as far as entering the date of appointment but their drop down for time of appointment is not working; in view of the article perhaps they have disabled this. I better look out those walking shoes!!!
  6. Hi Ken I received notification that you had sent further response beginning " Oh Ok"I do not see the response on the site.
  7. Hi Ken. Thanks for your response. Yes I tried that. I do not recall using the site before so was unable to use that route. I had an Ikamet until 2017( old book system). I intend to apply for STRP and was trying to cut down on legwork going around the various offices. I have a 99 number. This week 3 visits to bank to sort out address!!!
  8. I am looking for help with an access problem. When I ty to access the site via Internet Banking I get a screen message " login could not be completed due to server problem". I have tried to access using various modes( iPad, smart phone and PC) but none work. Any advice appreciated.
  9. Hi ,Can anyone tell me the name and address etc of a good english speaking lawyer in Alanya?ThanksTimmy
  10. Sorry I used the wrong terminology. The tax I am referring to is the Real Estate Sale and Acquisition levy of 3.3%( should be 1.65% each but usually paid by purchaser).
  11. Hi , Yes I suspect the same. Unfortunately I was not there and someone else did the transfer for me. I will be back in Turkey soon and will take your advice. I did pay over the corect tax figure.
  12. Hi,I recently bought an apartment in Turkey. I was aware of the "local" custom to declare the municipality value on tapu rather than the actual purchase price. This was a situation I wanted to avoid being aware of possible problems later if property sold and a capital gain achieved. I have no intention to sell however I am anxious to get the true price entered on the tapu. Does anyone have any experience of doing this and what it might cost? I would add that I have been assured that the correct stamp duty has been paid based on true purchase price paid by me. I have read the guidelines issued
