What is Istanbul Real Estate Lawyer?

The headlines opened on the internet under the name of "Istanbul real estate lawyer" are unrealistic. A  branch of attorneyship called Istanbul real estate lawyer is not defined in the legislation. It is also illegal for lawyers involved in real estate cases to identify themselves as real estate lawyers. Unfortunately, the legal profession in Turkey specializes in the guidance of practice. In Turkey, the lawyer has the authority to follow all kinds of cases or works. Legally, there is no obligation to choose any branch and practice the profession in that branch. But especially in big cities like Istanbul, the practice is leading towards specialization. For this reason, in judicial practice, the professions that enter into cases related to immovable properties as the people call them are called real estate lawyers.

Is it Obligatory to Hire a Lawyer in a Real Estate (Immovable) Case?

According to the legislation in force, there is no obligation to hire a lawyer in any other case, except in some criminal cases where the criminal lawyer and the accused must be  represented. There is also no obligation to hire a lawyer in real estate cases. The parties can pursue their cases by opening their own cases. However, immovable cases are cases with many technical dimensions. The slightest procedural error by the parties may cause the case to be lost procedurally. Due to the importance of immovable cases, following the case through a specialist lawyer will eliminate the possible mistakes of the parties.

Immovable cases are mostly cases that are heard in the Court of First Instance by applying the written trial procedure. Therefore, if procedural attention is not paid to the proceedings, it is inevitable to face loss of rights. For example, if the time limit given by the court for the presentation of evidence is not respected, the trial will continue as if no evidence had been submitted to the case file.

What are Immovable Lawsuits?

 Prevention of Intervention Case

An interfering lawsuit is the most common type of real estate lawsuit. In order to benefit from any immovable property, it is necessary to either be the owner of the immovable or to obtain permission from the owner of the immovable. It is unlawful to use an immovable in any way without obtaining approval from the owner of the immovable. This use of the property gives the owner the right to sue for interference (prevention of interference). The owner of the immovable property eliminates the attack on his real estate with the case of prevention of interference. If there is an occupation of the immovable by a person who is not the rightful owner, the occupier is removed from the immovable and even ecrimisil (occupation compensation) can be demanded from the unjust occupier. Many interconnected demands are put forward by the lawyer in a systematic case and the owner of the immovable property is provided with his right.

The Case of Izale-i Şuyu (Dissolution of Partnership)

An action for the dissolution of an Izale-i Şuyu or partnership is in question when more than one person owns an immovable property. In shared ownership, the shareholders may not agree on the partition of the immovable. In this case, the shareholders file an izale-i şüyu lawsuit for the termination of the partnership. The title deed record should be examined and the case should be directed to all stakeholders. This non-governmental suit cannot be concluded until all persons who have a share in the immovable property are included in the case.

At the end of the case of dissolution of the partnership, if it is possible to divide the immovable property exactly, the immovable property shall be divided exactly. If the same partition is not possible, the immovable property is sold through the execution office and given to the shareholders in proportion to their share of the sale price.

Title Deed Cancellation and Registration Cases and Istanbul  Real Estate Lawyer

Title deed cancellation and registration proceedings can be filed for many reasons. After the facts underlying the cancellation of the title deed are concretized, the title deed cancellation and registration case should be opened. The types of title deed cancellation cases are as follows:

Title Deed Cancellation Case for Expropriation

Expropriation is the transfer of the ownership of the immovable property belonging to any person to the public through a unilateral administrative process in the public interest. The administration may expropriate the immovable property belonging to any person after taking a public interest decision. In order for the expropriation process to be completed, the administration must file a title deed cancellation and registration case against the owner of the real estate in the judicial jurisdiction. In this lawsuit filed by the administration, the lawyer defends the rights of the property owner on the defendant. If the administration's public interest decision is not in place, a lawsuit may be filed against this action in the administrative jurisdiction. The title deed cancellation and registration case will be affected by the outcome of the case for the cancellation of the expropriation decision filed in the administrative jurisdiction. When the expropriation decision is annulled, the title deed cancellation and registration case is concluded in favor of the property owner who is the defendant. The lawyer tries to ensure that the case ends in favor of the owner of the property by following these interconnected processes.

Cancellation and Registration of the Deed Given by the Cadastral Transaction

Cadastre is a process carried out by the state, which provides for the registration of lands in an area, the determination of land characteristics on the map and records, and finally the registration of those who have the right to own the land in the land registry. When cadastral (tapulama) is carried out on the lands, incorrect determinations can be made about the dimensions of the land, its boundaries or who the right owner is. The real estate lawyer examines the land registry records and cadastral determination minutes and opens a title deed cancellation and registration case if the land owner has any loss of rights. If the objection period to the cadastre process has been missed, there are some derogatory periods. For example, there is a derogatory period of 10 years from the date of the cadastre for the claim of entitlement for the period preceding the cadastre. The fact of limitation should be evaluated first before the cancellation and registration of the title deed for the immovable property registered in the name of someone else or whose boundaries are drawn incorrectly.

Immovable Sale Promise Agreement and the Function of Istanbul Real Estate Lawyer

The contract of promise of sale of immovable property is made in practice for a wide variety of reasons. However, the most common contract for the sale of immovable property is the promise of the sale of the real estate arising from the construction contract in exchange for flats. The construction contract for flats is one of the full two-sided contracts that are fulfilled in a long process and impose rights and obligations on the parties in the process of implementation of the contract. In this contract, the owner of the land promises to sell a part of his real estate to the contractor if a structure is built on his land under the conditions of the contract. These contracts should be arranged together with the real estate lawyer. Legal advice should be obtained for all processes from the signing of the contract to its fulfillment. Thus, the rights of the parties on the immovable property are clarified in a way that does not cause hesitation.

Shufa Case (Right of Pre-emption Case)

The right of restitution, or in other words the right of pre-emption, is a legally innovative right that gives the right holder the right to buy the immovable under the same conditions as the third person if the owner of the immovable sells the immovable to third parties. If the conditions of the pre-emption right have occurred, the title deed cancellation and registration case can be filed through the real estate lawyer. A suit for restitution may arise from a contract as well as from having a share in the shared property. According to the source of the right of restitution, a pre-emption case should be opened.

Title Deed Cancellation Case Arising from Inheritance Law

With the death of the owner of the immovable property, some disputes arising from inheritance law may arise. For example, one of the heirs may claim that his or her reserved share has been encroached upon or that there has been a consensual sale transaction. The case of sharing property in inheritance can turn into a title deed cancellation and registration case in one aspect.

Taking into account the specific norms of inheritance law, a case for cancellation and registration of title deeds should be filed for the right holder. Since title deed cancellation and registration cases arising from inheritance law take quite a long time due to the large number   of parties, filing a lawsuit through an Istanbul real estate lawyer prevents the prolongation of the litigation process.
