Fixed rates 6-9% per annum(in terms of euros)*
Loan term From 6 months to 15 years
Minimum age of borrower 25
Maximum age of borrowerby the end of the loan term 60
Maximum percentage of monthlyincome for mortgage 30%

*Turkish banks only grant foreign currency loans to foreign nationals.

  • passport
  • ownership certificate (Tapu) copy
  • proof of income (salary statements for employees, company documents for business owners)

  • credit history report
  • property insurance statement
  • proof of existing assets (securities, property, vehicles)
  • Turkish tax identification number
  • proof of additional income, if applicable.

All the documents must have Turkish translations and be notarised.
