In contrast to most European countries, the entry in the property register in Turkey is not performed by a Public Notary but by an official of the Property Registry Department. It is a legal requirement for both sides (the seller and the buyer) to be present at the entry. It is possible to authorize another person by giving a Power of Attorney at Notary Public. The delivery of the Title Deed of transfer does not require the intervention of a Notary Public in Turkey. After the entry and delivery the property register issues a proof of ownership, which is called the ‘Tapu’.
