Many visitors calling to the Ege Eye office have just heard about the government’s amnesty for properties without a Habitation Certificate (HC) or for changes that have been made or added.
Many changes or alterations that you are unaware of could have been made before you bought the property and make your property illegal.
According to the Belediye applications for the amnesty should only be made once the project/plans have been looked at so it can be clearly seen what changes have been made or added. Checks will be made and fines imposed if you enter incorrect or unrealistic information.
The government only offers an amnesty like this every 10 years so it is an opportunity to legalise your property without a lengthy wait and various checks that are normally made.
If you are unsure as to whether you have a HC just email a copy of your tapu to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are outside of Turkey or unable to travel you will still be able to take advantage of the amnesty.
You can get further information by emailing your questions to email@example.com
