Title Deed transactions during the purchase of real estate

  1. What do you need to pay attention to when buying a house?
    The steps you need to follow in the deed when buying a home are extremely important to the smooth flow of your
    buying and selling transactions. If you have any questions about the house you intend to buy, you should not
    hesitate to ask questions. Therefore, do not neglect to look up the home’s earthquake policy in the title deed,
    ask if there are any tax debts and check the occupancy permit. It will save you time if you have already agreed
    with the seller how to pay the fee for the title deed. Also, make sure that when you record the house on the
    title deed, you state the actual price you paid. This way you can minimize your risk of having a problem in the

  2. What documents are needed at the Land Registry when I buy a house?
    Different documents are required from the buyer and seller to buy a title deed.

    The documents required from the seller are:

    • Original or photocopy of the deed

    • 1 photo

    • Original and photocopy of the identity card

    • A document from the municipality stating that there are no tax debts

    • Power of attorney, if the transactions are carried out by a real estate agent

    The documents requested by the buyer are:

    • Original and photocopy of the identity card

  3. How to pay when buying a house?
    Payment transactions for real estate purchases and sales are handled in a variety of ways. Payment by hand is
    one of the least secure methods of payment. For this reason, it is not recommended unless there is an absolute
    relationship of trust between the buyer and seller. Another method would be for the buyer to send the house
    money to the seller's account by money order, EFT or wire transfer. During this process, the buyer must include
    the title deed address information in the payment statement and write that the payment is the real estate fee.
    The title deed clearing system and the blocked check method are also commonly used in real estate exchanges. In
    the blocked check method, the buyer requests a blocked check from a bank of his choice, and the seller releases
    the check and transfers it to his account after notarization.

  4. Things you should do before you go into action:
    Before you buy or sell a house, you should want to see the deed. If you are not buying a home from a reliable
    real estate company, you should ask to see the deed. Before you proceed with the buying and selling
    transactions, you should make sure that the house has no old debts. To do this, go to the institution that owns
    the house and ask for a certificate that the house has no debts, including tax debts. If you want to buy a new
    house, you will have to go to the land registry to take possession of the house. You should not neglect to make
    an appointment before going to the deed. Because the intensity experienced may cause you to wait for a long time
    and interrupt your work.
