We are now the proud owners of a penthouse apartment in Turkey, all this would not have been possible without Onur…

Having bought and sold a French property , we were very much aware of potential issues with buying property abroad, but we’re completely alien to the Turkish buying process and wished to tread very carefully.

When our offer was accepted, the estate agent told us we didn’t need a lawyer, if we wanted to complete quickly and save money and we could use them or a lawyer they could recommend.

However, we wanted to use someone totally independent, for us, money wasn’t an issue and due to both work and health issues at the time, we wanted to find someone whom could not only take on the buying process on our behalf but would also include a Power of Attorney, so that we did not need to be travelling to/from Turkey to complete the sale.

Our search led us to Ali Onur and Kobalt Law.

From the beginning, we found Onur very easy to approach, thorough in the service he offered and easy to correspond with.

Onur regularly kept us up to date not only on a weekly basis but towards the end of completion this was sometimes on a minute by minute basis with up to the minute information being corresponded between us promptly, as and when it happened, sometimes this was out of hours and we did wonder on several occasions whether Onur ever went home and relaxed.

Whenever we were concerned about anything, Onur ensured that our concerns and worries were dealt with in a concise, professional manner.

Onur clarified what needed to be actioned, reassuring us along the way.

During the 5 months that our sale took to go through (we had to endure delays that included military checks,cadastral reviews of the area, etc) we found Onur to be a godsend and felt Onur went way and beyond his job description.

Throughout Onur reassured us, kept us up to date and provided us with an exceptional level of service and we do not regret for one second using him to complete our sale. The pressure was certainly off us by allowing Onur to undertake the sale on our behalf. Which on top of both work and health issues was very much appreciated. Onur showed immense compassion and ensured we were as stress free as one could allow.

Onur also arranged the utility transfers, a change of locks and even ensured the keys and original documents were sent to us from Turkey via courier.

We are now the proud owners of a penthouse apartment in Turkey, all this would not have been possible without Onur, whom after 5 months of speaking to him, we now count him as a friend and hope one day to thank him personally for making our “Turkish Dream” happen in a stress free, professional and informative manner.

Thank you Onur sincerely, we cannot wait for our Turkish adventure to begin.

With kind regards,

Yasmin
