Foreigners (whether or not resident) may purchase land and property in Turkey in their own names provided that the properties/land are not in a restricted military zone.  This is checked by application to the land registry and is a requirement for all foreigners purchasing real estate in Turkey.  It is the responsibility of the seller to apply for this but the cost is met by the buyer and will be added on to the final payment on completion of the sale.  This permission is required even if you already own a house in Turkey as the search is done on the property not the person.  The requirement may be waived under certain circumstances, in which case the clearance is granted immediately. Otherwise the process adds 4-6 weeks to the purchase.

 In order to purchase the title deed (tapu in Turkish) of a property, an application has to be submitted to the local Land Registry Office responsible for the property. After carrying out necessary searches and checks, the transfer of the title is done by the Land Registry Office. During the transaction, the proofs or the documents concerning the transfer of the full purchase price into Turkey must be presented to the Land Registry Office.

Stamp duty is currently payable at the rate of 4% of the agreed sale price, divided equally between the purchaser and seller and is due and collected during the title deed transfer. However, it is increasingly  common practice in some areas to see a shifting of this payment entirely to the purchaser. This should be agreed in advance between the parties and stated in the contract.
