Property management: how it works in Turkey

Property management: how it works in Turkey

When you buy an apartment in Alanya you become a sole and absolute owner of property on the Mediterranean coast. It is a very important point in Turkey, because a property owner can manage the property as he or she wishes, including management of expenses for housing maintenance.

How do people usually do it in Turkey? It is usually done at the general meeting of owners. It is called a complex management (Site Yönetimi) and each property owner must take part in it. Complex management includes a management board and a manager. They can be chosen by a developer or at the meeting of the property owners. Only owners of apartments in the residential complex can be elected for the board, and the manager can be any person or a company. A year later they will re-elect the board at the annual meeting, which is usually held in January. In addition, the owners discuss expenses for housing maintenance and plan the additional expenses for the next year. Maintenance costs and personnel costs (accountant, caretaker) will form the size of aidat.

If you want to influence the sum of aidat, you should take part in the meetings. You will get an official invitation, and even if you rent out your property, you can send a person empowered to act for you.

Can foreigners get a mortgage loan in Turkey?

Property prices in Alanya are considered to be rather affordable for most countries. This is one of the reasons why this Mediterranean resort is so popular among foreigners. However, if you don't have the full sum of money to pay for the property, you can get a mortgage in a Turkish bank.

The mortgage system in Turkey is relatively new. It was launched in 2007, straight after the mortgage law for residents and foreigners had been adopted. You can use a mortgage loan to buy ready-to-move-in property, as well as property under construction (not less than 70% of construction works should be done and a developer must have ISKAN). It is also possible to buy housing at an early construction stage, if a developer has an agreement with a bank and they are reliable partners.

To get a loan you need to provide the following documents:


  • certified translated copy of a passport;
  • tax number that you need to get in Turkey;
  • translated and certified by a translator income certificate;
  • certificate of absence of credit debts, certificate on current bank accounts with balance details (not all banks require these documents);
  • copy of seller's TAPU (a document that proves the ownership of an object) and a copy of seller's passport;
  • copy of ISKAN of the building (you can get it from the developer).

The interest rate for foreigners varies from 6.5 to 9% per annum. The loans are issued for a period from five to 15 years.
