Loved it so much

Hi all, myself, fiancé and 4 year old son enjoyed hisarõnü so much that we have decided to buy an apartment just two minutes walk from the main strip.

Can't wait to go back.

Be extremely careful and get a good solicitor, do not buy without one and make sure that the property has a Tapu (deeds). There are a lot of horror stories about people who buy in the area without independent advice.

Without a Tapu the place is not yours. Good luck.

Thank you for the advice.

Everything is being processed at the moment and a solicitor will be looking through the contract before anything has been finalised. The apartment has the deeds to it which we will be flying out to sign them, along with the lovely english couple that we are buying the apartment from.

Maybe book you in for a week or two in the future :-)

We have had our own place for 9 years now, so don't need to a booking :) We bought with the idea to rent out, but we loved the place too much to let anyone else use it. Benefits of doing this, you can buy the best of furniture and you can leave your clothes and personal effects in your Turkish Home. Also, would not want the hassle of tenants or paying the taxes for the rental to the Turkish Authorities.

The apartment we are buying has been furnished to a lovely homely standard, not like the other basic apartments on offer.

We are a bit wary of this but we are thrusting that visitors treat it with respect and look after it.

We will be renting our apartment out as that's the main reason for purchasing so paying tax is just something that has to be done.

I'm sure there are many benefits weather you rent it our or keep it solely for personal use.

Where is your property if you don't mind me asking?
