With the decisions published on 01.11.2018 on the Turkish Official Gazette, the digital title deed era began in Turkey. Thanks to the new system with QR code on the title deed, you can reach all the information with a single click. (Read more about the new title deed in Turkey here)
A Title deed in Turkey is called a Tapu, and much like other countries, it is an official and legal document to prove ownership rights of a property. Title deeds in Turkey are supplied, registered and archived by the Tapu and Cadastro General Directorate. Each deed includes information such as the owner's name, photograph and property details.
To be legal, a title deed in Turkey must be sealed with a stamp in the bottom, the center of the document. Photos, although not compulsory feature in the top right-hand side.
Note: More than one person can own the same property. In this case, the respective shares are to be shown in the tapu.
