What Is A Power Of Attorney?

A Power of Attorney (POA ) is a legally authorization binding document that empowers someone to manage your property, financial affairs, and health care with the authority to act on behalf of the principal. Some people are incapacitated to manage their affairs abroad, so this legal document allows investors who have limited time or for a variety of reasons to give to agents to make decisions regarding their affairs and commit to taking care of their investments in a safe place. When you are in the process of buying a property in Turkey the agent will be able to set up utilities such as:

  • Obtaining or submitting any documents to the administrative authorities;
  • Obtaining or submitting a certificate of ownership (Tapu) in your name;
  • Drawing up of electric meters and water meters;
  • Signing leases;
  • Sale of immovable property;

There are two main types of POAs, both provide attorney-in-fact in Real estate investments:

  • Limited Power of Attorney.
  • General Power of Attorney.

Limited Power of Attorney

The most recommended document that has specifically authorized to act on behalf of pre-established transactions. The most appropriate choice by many when investing in a property in Turkey.

General Power of Attorney

Readers, we do not recommend for any circumstance the general power of attorney. Why? Let's say you own a beachfront villa in Alanya and you cannot be in Turkey for personal reasons, then you have given an agent full authorization to represent you lawfully in any matter. The agent may be authorized to handle bank accounts, signs checks, manage assets, and file taxes for the principal.  

Let's pretend you bought a new home and you can obtain Turkish Citizenship or Resident Permit. You can designate the person who has given the power of attorney to make all the transactions, this includes rental, management, and bank affairs. 

While transferring the power to an agent, reinforce what would you like to transfer, such as electricity and water utilities, and you can set up the level of power to the authorized person.
