Loan obtaining procedure:

Once the specialists of our company, together with you, have prepared all the necessary documents and translated them into Turkish, they will be delivered to the Bank for examination. 

The Bank will invite an expert real estate appraiser, analyze the documents and issue a preliminary loan approval, which indicates: loan amount, its term, interest rate and other conditions. 

Standard bank offer period — 4 months. At this stage the Borrower must pay for the expert company services in the amount of approximately 150 euros. 

After that starts the procedure of (Tapu) Certificate of Title registering on the real estate Buyer. At the time of Tapu transfer to the new Owner, the bank imposes the mortgage encumbrance on it. 

To make possible Tapu transfer to the Borrower and, respectively, loan obtaining, all the permits from the Office of Cadastre in Ankara and the Military Department in Izmir (it usually takes from 2 to 4 months) must be obtained. 

Once the Buyer has received the certificate of title, the loan will be paid to the real estate owner by the Bank by a direct transfer into his/her account. 

At the time when the loan is paid the Borrower must pay the additional expenses of the Bank at the rate of 2% of the loan amount + the cost of the various types of insurance.
