Purchasing Property

Step by Step Property Purchasing in North Cyprus

The northern side of Cyprus is the Turkish-speaking part of the island with the British legislation style. Buying property in North Cyprus can be a bit slow and challenging due to it being a relatively small island country. The government offices are small and the number of officials is often insufficient. However, TEKCE's local lawyers and expert agents resolve the bureaucratic processes as quickly as possible in person; which provides you the fastest solution. Buying real estate in North Cyprus basically consists of a series of legal procedures to follow. The registration of the property generally takes 9 to 12 months, but TEKCE's practice reduces this bureaucratic step to 6 months. If you are not aware of the fundamentals of how to buy property in North Cyprus, it is way easier to follow every step with a professional consultant.
