A survey being carried out by the Turkish Government’s Science, Technology and Research Council hopes to identify the effect of us foreigners owning property in Turkey.

Long term readers may recall the survey we helped with in 2006 which focused on the integration of foreign residents with the Turkish community.

The new survey is also funded by TUBITAK (the Turkish Government’s Science, Technology and Research Council), has the support of the National Land Registry, and aims to highlight the effects of foreigners buying land/property within the country.

Three research assistants from Ankara University, who are part of the team conducting the survey, were in Fethiye this week and left behind a supply of questionnaires at FETAV for any foreign property-owning resident who would like to take part.

Survey of foreign owned property in Turkey

You can collect a blank questionnaire during office hours, Monday – Friday, from the FETAV office, next to the Lycian sarcophagus on the main street in Fethiye.

When you have filled out your questionnaire you drop it off at FETAV, and they will send all the completed questionnaires to Ankara.

Any questions that you don’t want to answer or can’t understand, don’t worry just leave them blank.

All completed questionnaires need to get to FETAV by 20th March, so if you want to take part don’t delay.

In due course we shall be publishing the results of the survey.

And thank you in advance to any and everyone who takes the trouble to complete a questionnaire.
