Power of attorney

#41
Hi
I am the original poster and so confused, Jandi thank you, and Ann very constructive help.
Just a thought, if I/we where to get a flight would we be able to proceed, ie; pay deposit, set up bank account, proceed with military search. Appears a so complicated way forward from the UK. Our problem is we live in the North and flights to Dalaman during the winter months are difficult and expensive and we can only spare a long weeken for this. Temptation is to leave things untill summer flights strt and we can also make a holiday of it, however risk of losing the property and letting the seller down. Really appreciate others thoughts on this.
Kind regards
Brenda

Hi
Looking for info on the best way to get a power of attorney completed in England also a translation of passports. We are comfortable with the agent who will have power of attorney, just need guidance on the best way forward due to being unable to get out to Dalaman untill April.
Kind regards
Brenda
Hi Brendab, your post above now makes it clear what you want the POA for :).

Just my opinion & without any prejudice to whatever agent you are using. Don't think that you have to rush into anything, believe me it is far more important for you that you are sure that the property's 'standing' has been properly checked out. IE: free of debt, Deeds (Tapu) in the sellers name in the book at the Tapu office, habitation cert in situ etc.

POA is too powerfull a tool to be taken too lightly. It needs to 'permit' the holder to carry out, only the specific tasks (with the address of the property) you require & preferably given an end of date, this will avoid the neccesity of having to 'revoke' the POA at the end of your business, which does involve a further cost.

It is a 'buyers' market, properties are not hopping off the shelves. Please take your time to be sure that the property you want will deliver the dream you have. Too many (me included) did not have the benefit of this forum with the great advice on 'how to, in Turkey'.

I would not want anyone to go through the years of hell I & many others have had to endure, when our dream fell apart. Due diligence is More than neccessary, it's a lot of money. Small deposit after basic property checks (for debts etc), then They, apply for 'Military Permission' You only pay the balance when your Military permission is cleared & you are satisfied that everything is in order.

Please take the time to read though the threads people having kindly highlighted for you & maybe click on the search button for lots of info on 'Tapu's' & Habitation Certificates'.

But. NONE of the above should be started without having a VERY comprehensive Notarised Contract in place first.

My very best wishes to you :)

We have received 2 POA granted to us on behalf of friends from the uk.

Is anyone able to quote a fee to translate them together with the apostile on the back??

Thanks in advance!

Not sure if it helps Brenda but you can fly Manchester to Dalaman via Istanbul for around 700TL (£243) and be able to do this in person.

The flights are available via Turkish Airlines and go daily

Hi SonnyJim,
the POA we use is usually a one page document and the translation cost is usually around 150 Lira. Every translator may have different charges though, and bear in mind that they would usually charge depening on how many pages (or in some cases how many words) need translating.
Then of course you will need to pay for the translated copies to be notarised...Usually around another 150 Lira.

Many thanks to all. Final decision is to fly over next week and do things in person. My other half has flight booked, going Thursday and leaving Dalaman Sat to arrive in UK Sunday. Again thanks for lively discussion, have learnt a lot about POA, in the end felt it was well worth the effort of going over.
Regards

You need to go back to the Notars office and do an official cancellation. They then send a letter out to the person that held the POA informing them that it has been cancelled. You'll need an official translator and pay for the privilege, anything up to 400tl plus translator fees.

If the POA relates to a specific property, its well worth popping down the deeds office and getting them to put a copy of the cancellation notice in their file. If it relates to a bank account, do the same, just in case...

Probably not, but then again (as far as I'm aware) the cancellation process for a POA obtained outside TR is not dissimilar to the application process, it will have to apostilled by the FCO (or equivalent in your country) which adds to the cost.

I'd go back to the NP you used originally, just to keep things tight.
