The services we provide through our lawyers and other specialists:
• Mortgage operations
A mortgage is a legal agreement that conveys the conditional right of ownership on an asset or property by its owner (the mortgagor) to a lender (the mortgagee) as security for a loan. The lender's security interest is recorded in the register of title documents to make it public information, and is voided when the loan is repaid in full. A mortgage can be established with the loans granted by banks or other financial institutions, or a property may be mortgaged as collateral for a debt or as collateral for commercial activities. With our dedicated workforce of lawyers and industry specialists FU completes mortgage operations throughout Turkey.
• Investigation into the legal status of real estate
An encumbrance, which means a restriction or limitation, is a term that is used in land registry transactions today. It denotes if there are any restrictions or charges over the land registry details of a piece of real estate. Or, for example, whether the owner has the right or is eligible to act upon the property. An encumbrance will specify whether there is anything that may affect the value of the real estate. Another purpose of a real estate investigation demanded by the buyer is to find out whether another party is entitled to purchase the real estate (housing, workplace, plot, field, etc).
• Drafting of official deeds
The official deed that is submitted to the land registry office prior to the mortgage reflects the nature of the transaction, and involves the creation and transfer of real estate ownership, as well as other non-title rights. An official deed is then issued by the authority of the land registry office. FU provides a draft official deed for submission to the land registry offices prior to every single transaction on behalf of clients.
