Under the general heading of the contract of promise of sale, we will touch on titles such as the contract of promise of immovable sale, the example of the contract of promise of sale, the contract of promise of sale of real estate, the contract of promise of sale notary fee

The provision of Article 29 of the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 titled "Preliminary Contract" is as follows:

"Contracts for the future establishment of a contract are valid.

With the exceptions provided for in the law, the validity of the preliminary contract depends on the form of the contract to be established in the future" (art. 29).

This provision of a general nature states that it is possible and valid to conclude a preliminary contract for the future establishment of any contract. It also states that the said preliminary contract is subject to the formal requirements for the establishment of the original contract as a rule. This basic principle also applies to sales contracts.


Real Estate Sale Promise Agreement (Real Estate Sales Promise Contract)

After the explanations we have made above about the promise of sale, we can switch to the issue of the promise of immovable sale. The only regulation of the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 regarding the promise of immovable sale is related to the form condition of the contract in question.

"The promise of the sale of real estate,... it shall not be valid unless it is formally regulated."  (TBK; art. 237/II)

In accordance with the above express regulation, contracts for the promise of sale of immovable property are subject to the condition of official written validity. In accordance with this validly established contract, in the event that the term or maturity stipulated in the contract is realized, it is mutually promised to make the immovable sale contract. If one of the parties fails to fulfill its contractual obligation, the other party may bring a performance action against it. In this case, the decision of the court will replace the will of the party who refuses to enter into the contract. With this decision, the party who wins the case can go directly to the land registry office and request the registration of the real estate in his name.

If the contract of promise of sale of immovable property is annotated in the land registry (Land Registry Law; art. 26/V, TMK m. 1009), it becomes assertable against third parties (Art. 1009/II of the Turkish Penal Code). The validity period of the commentary is 5 (five) years (Land Registry Law; art. 26/VIII). However, if it is not annotated, the ownership or other limited in-kind rights of bona fide third parties over the immovable property in question shall be protected. In this case, it is possible to file a lawsuit for compensation of damages against the seller who made the sale impossible.

The right of receivable arising from the contract of promise of sale of immovable property is 10 years from the date of obligation. At the end of this period, the right expires.

Real Estate Sales Promise Contract Not Made in a Notary Public

The only provision in the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 regarding the promise of immovable sale is related to the form condition of this contract. This fact alone is sufficient to show the importance of compliance with the conditions of form for the validity of the contract in question. The form requirements for validity are among the mandatory provisions of the law and if they are not complied with, they arise as a result of the invalidity of the contract in accordance with the provision of Article 12/2 of the TBK.

"The form prescribed in the law for contracts is, as a rule, the form of validity. Contracts formed without complying with the prescribed form shall not give rise to provisions." (TBK; art. 12/2)

Even if the contract in question is made in the form of approval and not in the form of arrangement in the Notary, the contract will be absolutely null and void. The said invalidity can be asserted by anyone and is considered ex officio by the judge at every stage. Likewise, the invalidity of the contract will result in the invalidity of issues such as the penal clause and withdrawal money attached to this contract. The promise debtor cannot make a claim based on a contract contrary to the form.

However, there are some cases in which the parties may have complied with a contract that is essentially null and void due to non-compliance with the form as if it were valid and may have fulfilled their own obligations. In such cases, asserting a contravention of form constitutes an abuse of the right, as the Court of Cassation has accepted. Such situations vary according to the nature of the concrete event.

Contract of Promise of Sale 4

Immovable Sale Promise in the Form of Arrangement and Construction Contract in Return for Land Share

The construction contract for land share is a type of mixed contract that has emerged due to need in practice, has been shaped within the framework of freedom of contract, and includes the work (exception) contract and the immovable sale promise contracts. On one side of this contract is the contractor and on the other side is the land owner. In this type of contract, unlike the work contract, the fee is replaced by an independent section/floor to be given to the land owner. The provisions of the work contract shall also apply to the act that the contractor (contractor) undertakes to perform.

As stated above, the construction contract for land share manifests itself in the form of the land owners undertaking to transfer the land share to the contractor in exchange for the structure to be built on the land within the framework of the agreement they have made with the contractor. In this respect, there is a "promise of immovable sale". In other words, the contractor will build a building (work), and in return he will be promised the sale of immovable property (land share).

Since it contains the promise of sale of immovable property within the construction contract in exchange for a share of the land, it is subject to the official written validity condition (notarized arrangement) (TBK; art. 237/II).

Invalid Real Estate Sale Promise Contract Unjust Enrichment

It was explained above that the contract of promise of sale of immovable property is subject to the condition of official written validity and that contracts of promise of sale of immovable property made contrary to this form are void in accordance with Article 12/II of the Turkish Penal Code.

In accordance with the contracts of promise of sale of immovable property made contrary to the official written form, if the price has been paid, the creditor of the promise will be able to demand back the price he has given with an unjust enrichment case because the contract is void.

There is another situation where there may be unjust enrichment provisions in contracts for the promise of sale of immovable property. If the performance of the debt has become impossible for one of the parties, the party who has performed the act may demand the return of the obligations in accordance with the provisions of unjust enrichment since there is no legal reason left. The expropriation of the immovable property or the destruction of the immovable property through no fault of the promise debtor are among such reasons.

Again, a similar situation exists in terms of reversal or retroactive termination institutions arising due to reasons such as default. Some of the decisions of the Court of Cassation on this issue are as follows:

Contract of Promise of Sale 5

Notary Fee in Contract of Promise of Sale

Turkey is a country that is in demand by foreigners both in terms of tourism and in terms of life sustaining. Real estate purchases are frequently made by foreigners to the extent permitted by law. With the Law No. 6302, which entered into force on May 18, 2012, the reciprocity requirement for housing purchases and sales in Turkey was abolished. This legal change has accelerated and increased the purchase of houses by foreigners in Turkey. According to TURKSTAT data, 39 thousand 663 houses were purchased by foreigners in 2017. This number continues to increase day by day. However, not every foreigner can buy the real estate he wants to the extent he wishes. Legal limits are set in the Land Registry Law. We have touched on all the limits and conditions in the subheadings.

How Can Foreigners Buy Real Estate?

Foreigners who want to buy housing (house) or land in Turkey should pay attention to the real estate purchase procedures and conditions. Wanting to buy real estate without adhering to the regulated conditions and transactions may cause the foreigner to lose rights.

The house buying procedures of foreigners are carried out within the framework of the legislation currently in force in Turkey. Accordingly, for foreigners to buy a house, just like other citizens, it depends on the transfer in the deed. This is subject to the formal form requirement by law. Accordingly, the real estate sales contract will be valid with the signing of the official deed and registration at the Land Registry Directorate. It is also possible to conclude a contract of promise for the purchase of housing. But as a difference, contracts for the promise of sale of immovable property must be made in the presence of a notary. The purpose of the contract of promise of sale of immovable property is to make a debt transaction but it is not yet desired to transfer the ownership to the other party. Contracts concluded without complying with the formal form requirements are null and void due to non-compliance with the form. The documents that foreigners must submit to the Land Registry Directorate when purchasing real estate are listed under the heading of "Documents Required for Foreigners to Purchase Real Estate". Upon completion of these documents and the positive outcome of the necessary examinations, a foreigner may obtain a real estate title deed in Turkey as a result of the registration process.


Conditions for Foreigners to Acquire Real Estate

The purchase of houses by foreigners in Turkey is subject to certain conditions. It is possible to reach these conditions through the Land Registry Law. In order to get information about the conditions, it will be useful to consider the limits that we have indicated under the heading "Limits on the Purchase of Real Estate by Foreigners". Under this heading we will talk about conditions outside the borders.

  1. Care should be taken to ensure that the sales contract is made at the Land Registry Directorates in accordance with the official form requirement. The official deed and registration are issued in this institution.
  2. The required documents must be submitted completely and accurately. Incomplete or incorrect documents will cause the process to be prolonged. We have touched on what these documents are below.
  3. For the real estate to be purchased, permission must be obtained from the military authorities in the region, valid in some districts. Thus, if a real estate is located within a military forbidden zone or in a strategically important area due to its location, the purchase of real estate may not be allowed.

Limits on Foreigners' Purchase of Real Estate

The purchase of houses by foreigners in Turkey has been subject to a number of restrictions imposed by legal and precautionary decisions. According to Article 35 of the Land Registry Law No. 2644, a foreigner who wants to buy a house in Turkey can acquire a house in Turkey within these limitations.  The existence of these restrictions is important for the integrity of the country's territory. If it is necessary to list the existing restrictions imposed with the legal and injunction decisions, it is possible to make a list as follows:

  • The foreigner who wants to buy real estate must be one of the citizens of the countries where it is allowed to buy real estate within the borders of the country. For example, citizens of the Syrian Arab Republic cannot buy real estate within the borders of our country today. Information about which country's citizens can buy a house in Turkey can be obtained from the General Directorate of Land Registry or the Turkish Embassy and Consulate. For Syrian citizens, we establish a company on behalf of the citizen and buy real estate on behalf of this company.
  • Within the borders of the country, a real foreigner can acquire immovable or limited in-kind rights up to a maximum of 30 hectares. The foreigner who wants to buy 30 hectares or more of immovable property will not be able to realize this request on the grounds of legal limitations.
  • Another limit of the purchase of real estate by foreigners is that the foreigner who wants to buy real estate can only buy real estate up to 10% of the surface area of the district where the real estate is located.
  • There shall be no legal restrictions on the pledges of immovable property established for the trading company of foreigners.
  • It is not possible for foreign legal entities to buy immovable property in Turkey. However, since legal entities with foreign capital are established in Turkey, they can purchase real estate as long as they comply with the necessary restrictions and conditions.

Can Syrians buy real estate?

Buying a house in Turkey by foreigners is not a recognized right for every foreigner. For the interests and continuity of the country, the purchase of real estate in Turkey is prohibited for the citizens of some countries. Syrians are forbidden to buy houses in Turkey. However, it is known that the necessary legal arrangements for Syrians to buy houses in Turkey will come into force soon. In addition, Syrians can buy real estate on their relatives in order to buy a house in Turkey, or they can establish a foreign-capital company that is a legal entity and buy real estate through this company. With the completion of the necessary arrangements, citizens of the Syrian Arab Republic will also be able to buy houses.

Documents Required for Foreigners to Acquire Real Estate

In order for foreigners to purchase real estate, first of all, the owner of the immovable property must make a preliminary application to the Land Registry Directorate. If there are missing documents in the preliminary application, the file is kept waiting, but if there are no deficiencies and defects, the documents required for the real estate sales process should be submitted to the General Directorate of Land Registry. We can count the required documents as follows:

  1. Certificate of Title Deed of the immovable property or village/neighborhood, island, parcel, building, independent section information.
  2. Identity document or passport (with translation if necessary).
  3. "Real Estate Fair Value Certificate" of the immovable property obtained from the relevant Municipality
  4. Real Estate Valuation Report.
  5. Compulsory earthquake insurance policy for buildings.
  6. 1 photograph of the seller and 2 photographs of the buyer and foreigner (within the last 6 months, size 6×4).
  7. If there is a party who does not speak Turkish, he is a sworn translator.
  8. In case of transaction with a power of attorney issued abroad, the original or certified copy of the power of attorney with its translation. Power of attorney issued abroad must be issued by the Consulate General or Embassy of the Republic of Turkey. An important distinction regarding examples of power of attorney issued abroad relates to the Hague Convention. Accordingly, if the power of attorneys issued by the notaries of the foreign country are approved according to the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961, they contain the certified photograph of the foreigner in the language of the country and contain the phrase "Apostille (Convention de La Haye du Octobre 1961)", the approval of the Turkish Consulate will no longer be required for Turkish translations. On the contrary, the approval of the Turkish Consulate is absolutely necessary for power of attorneys that are not certified according to The Hague Convention.

Tuition Fee for Foreigners to Purchase Real Estate

There are certain fees paid for real estate purchases in Turkey. Foreigners who want to buy housing in Turkey can also own real estate on the condition that they pay these fees. We can list the types and amounts of fees published by the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre as follows:

  • The title deed fee is paid by both the buyer and the seller. If the housing is located within the boundaries of the municipality, a 2% title deed fee must be paid on the value of the residence, provided that it is not less than the Real Estate Fair Value obtained from that municipality. For example, the title deed fee to be taken from a house worth 300,000 TL is 6,000 Turkish Liras.
  • A working capital fee is paid. Although it is determined locally, the maximum for 2019 is 128 * 2,5 TL. So, it is maximum 320 Turkish Liras.

What Should Foreigners Pay Attention to When Buying Real Estate?

Foreigners who want to buy real estate in Turkey will be able to buy a house without losing their rights as long as they pay attention to certain issues. However, it is necessary to be aware of these issues, otherwise invalid transactions may occur. We can summarize the points that a foreigner should pay attention to when buying real estate as follows:

  1. First of all, it should be questioned from the Land Registry Directorates whether there are any restrictions such as liens and mortgages that may prevent the sale of the immovable property that constitutes the subject of the sale. Restrictions on real estate for the sale of real estate are not an obstacle to the sale. However, it has negative consequences for the foreigner who buys it.
  2. The zoning status of the house to be purchased should be checked.
  3. The person selling the house to be purchased and the title deed holder should be checked with identity and be careful about fake power of attorneys.
  4. The quality of the land to be taken is very important. In case of taking agricultural lands at a low price, a pre-purchase right lawsuit may be filed and taken by the neighboring parcel over the price shown.
  5. Be wary of possible scammers.
  6. In the process of buying real estate, you should definitely work with a reliable and experienced lawyer.
  7. A foreigner does not need to have a residence permit to buy a house in Turkey.
  8. Foreigners who have been refused to buy real estate can appeal to the Regional Directorate of the Land Registry Directorate. It will be to the benefit of foreigners who are sure that they meet the necessary conditions to use their right to appeal.
  9. If there is any dispute in the process of buying and selling real estate, a lawsuit should be filed in the relevant courts.
