Power of Attorney


power of attorney

If a Person would like to purchase a property in Northern Cyprus through their (Sole or Joint Name) there are 2 ways in which this can be done. NB: A purchaser is advised to bring or provide their passport during the appointment.

Sole Name

Firstly, if a purchaser visits Northern Cyprus he/she can make an appointment with us to direct them to a relevant lawyer or notary. During this appointment, we will explain the purchasing process and introduce the ''Power of Attorney'' to the customer and sign the document in our office. The Power of Attorney once signed by a client, this will allow us to sign the Contract of Sale on their behalf and thereafter apply for customer's permission to purchase.

In the event that the purchaser cannot physically sign Power of Attorney here in Northern Cyprus, the second option is to request the Power of Attorney to be signed by the Lawyer on his/her behalf while abroad. Usually this done once the client has contacted us and sent us a scanned copy of their original passport so that we can prepare the Power of Attorney and email it back to them. If the purchaser lives in a country that has a TRNC (Turkish Republic of North Cyprus) Representatives Office or consular they will then take the Power of Attorney to their local TRNC Office for signing. If the country that they live in does not have a TRNC Representatives Office then they will take the Power of Attorney to the Turkish Embassy. Once this has been done we would then inform the client of how they must return to us the original Power of Attorney.

Joint Names

In the event that the purchasers would like to purchase a property in joint names and would like the Contract of Sale and Permission to purchase. The application could be done in joint names we would request a Power of Attorney for these clients. In order to prepare the Power of Attorney we would require the purchasers’ up to date passports. If the purchasers are able to visit us at our office in Iskenderun, Kubbeli Çeşmesi Sok in Girne (Kyrenia) we can prepare the Power of Attorney during their visit and arrange for it to be signed at the same time.

However, if one or both parties are unable to visit our office the Power of Attorney to be signed abroad, once the clients have contacted us and sent us a scanned copy of their current passport we can prepare the Power of Attorney and email it back to them. If the purchaser/s live in a country that has a TRNC Representatives consular they will then take the Power of Attorney there for the signing. If the country that they live in does not have a TRNC Consulate then they will take the Power of Attorney to a Turkish Embassy. Once this has been done we would then inform the client of how they must send us the original Power of Attorney.

Title Deed only in joint names: If only one person comes to carry out Power Of Attorney but would like to take title jointly with another party, this can easily be done and is a straightforward procedure. As long as we have one family member on the contract we do not need the second member to go to the trouble of obtaining a Power of Attorney, since to apply for permission to purchase we will only need them to provide us with their police report, passport copy for them to complete a form which is obtainable from our office.
