Older Buildings and Earthquakes in Istanbul

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I talked to a property developer about this some time ago. He said there was a government organization which checks newly-constructed properties to make sure they can withstand a certain level of earthquake. And they charge a fee for doing this, and will do inspections of already-built homes. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the organization. You could probably check with the local municipality, with a property agent to find out who does this.

My wife was just last week in an Istanbul hospital & was talking to her Doctor in the canteen & ironically a similar conversation to this took place. He said that the Belediye were making checks on some of the very old buildings in the city & demolishing them if they appeared to be unstable or built of a very poor quality.
