Yearly tax in a nutshell
Afternoon all,
About to purchase an apartment in Fethiye and have looked at different threads on the above but cannot define what i would like to know.

Would i have to pay a council type tax like UK if i do how is assessed and apart from water electricity are there any other hidden taxes to consider before i sign on the dotted line.

Many Thanks,

You only start paying your council tax once you have the tapu in your name.Other payments are water and electric.
lf your on a complex or a site,then the payments can vary,which is an extra payment due to maintenance charges.
Remember also paying out for insurance for the property is not valid if you have no tapu in your name.Even though insurance has been bought for the property ,it doesn't mean it is valid,because the insurance company will not tell you this.
That about it with yearly payments on a property

my advice to avoid paying any other charges is dont talk to every turkish man as you,re bound to pay them something for something...... only joking ! happy holidays in your new venture..


Yearly tax in a nutshell
Your council tax is assessed by the amount that is put on your Tapu (at this stage thats up to you to accept a lower amount or insist on the correct amount). The only other charges other than the ones you mention are, your tax on the money in your bank and, any yearly complex charges.

Sorry forgot to say, first year of your council tax is free.
