There is one system of legal claim procedure implemented in respect of property ownership in Turkey; this system is administered by the Title Deed Directorate.

The directorate is a Public Office responsible for all procedures relating to title deed issue, ensuring that these procedures are implemented with integrity and in accordance with the state law. Each and every purchase is assigned a unique registration number that will appear alongside the appropriate Title Deed registration. 

The documents will be held in the Real Estate Registrar’s Office and copied to the Title Deed Directorate archives.
For the defined property, the ‘Title Deed’ (TAPU) is the only document that proves capital ownership. The owner of the property can be one or more individuals or legal entities (e.g. companies).
