Hi all,

I am getting ready to travel to Istanbul and rent an apartment  so I can apply for Residence Permit once I arrive. I was reading Ken's topic on Documents Required for a First-time Short-term Residence Permit. Under  First-time Application > "A notarized rental contract for the property you are renting, and a copy of your landlord's ID card" how can I get a landlord's ID card?, is this normal to ask for a copy?, and if I am renting from a company, how does that work?.

That article is currently being re-written. The information about the ID card is old. Thanks for noticing that, I have removed the part about the landlord's ID card.  You should only need a notarized copy of the rental contract.

In Istanbul, the immigration specialists may also ask for a copy of the tapu (property title deed) of the owner of the place you are living, but that depends on the foreigner involved and the immigration specialist.

In my case in Antalya, every year, the only thing I provide is a notarized copy of my rental agreement, and that is all.

There is one other thing in that article which was outdated (and has been changed). There is no need for you to go to the Nüfus ve Vatandaşlık İşlleri Genel Müdürlüğü (Directorate of Population and Citizenship Affairs, or Nüfus). It used to be that foreigners also had to register themselves at their address in a separate process. This is no longer necessary, since the immigration specialist handling your application will enter you into the Nüfus central address registry at the address on your rental contract. Also, when you extend your residence permit, there is also no longer any need to go to the Nüfus and get an address verification document.

Farris I apologize for that outdated information being there... I am re-writing all of the articles right now to improve and update them. But thank you for catching that problem, both of the above issues have been corrected in the article.
