At the moment most foreign nationalities cannot have Tapus transferred into their name.

The Government in certain areas of the country including Kusadası has removed the requirement for foreigners to obtain military clearance when purchasing property, this has caused problems for some Tapu offices who are not 100% clear on how to implement the recent law therefore a freeze has been put on the issuing of Tapus to avoid problems occuring later on.

The Ege Eye spoke to the Tapu office management in Kusadası today who confirmed the freeze but could not give any indication as to how long it would last. The freeze has been in place for 1 week so far.

Irish and British citizens are among those in the group who are affected by this.
