Urban transformation / renewal means the elimination of problems that disrupt the texture of a city and the creation of habitable cities. In the squatter transformation / urban renewal projects, it is aimed that “the illegal construction areas and the economically collapsed areas within the city are restructured with the scientific and health standards in a way that shall eliminate all possible natural disasters risks by introducing all the urban and social reinforcement services.”

Processes in the Squatter Transformation / Urban Renewal Projects;

  • Process of carrying out studies for the best and most efficient use in the region

  • Process of preparation of the justified reports

  • Process of determination of majority property and entitlement

  • Process of floor number analysis, usage analysis, function analysis

In the urban transformation projects, in the process of valuation studies, the following services are provided;

Urban renewal / transformation requires agreement between the property owners, apartment managements and apartment building owners, who want to renew their apartment buildings / structures under a risky structure status, and the valuation reports which provide the balance of boon-burden (Real Value and Justice).  In this context, valuation and consultancy services are offered to many individual owners, apartment building owners and apartment building managements in the process of urban renewal / transformation.

  • Within the scope of urban renewal / transformation, the apartment building owners / beneficiaries, who CANNOT AGREE on the risky structure model, need the real estate evaluation report to submit it to the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization.

  • As part of the urban renewal / transformation, the owners who do not need the Ministry’s intermediary shall require a real estate valuation report including the CURRENT STATUS VALUE, LAND SHARE VALUE and GOODWILL VALUATION.

  • Following the agreement with the contractor or the contracting construction company, all property owners can valuate their real estate rights based on the valuation report prepared.

We provide coordination or valuation and consultancy services for all or part of the project such as determination of the zoning status given for the renewal of the problematic areas and/or risky structures in the city, determination of property ownership, performing goodwill studies scientifically / with mathematical formulas according to the previous and new project, drawing the most efficient new projects in accordance with the zoning status, overlap/analysis of the new project with the current situation, helping in the ministry, land registry and municipality processes, in the selection of contractors.

Under the Urban Transformation Law (the Law on the Renewal of Disaster Risk Structures No. 6306), the old, earthquake-fragile, RISKY structures that have completed their economic life are transformed into earthquake-resistant, more valuable, habitable structures with social areas just when a property owner applies to the Licensed Companies of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization and make the CMB and BRSA’s Licensed Valuation Companies prepare the valuation report providing ensuring the boon-burden balance (Real Value and Justice). While the structures are renewed, the Urban Transformation Loans offers the possibility of benefiting from the municipality, title deed, notary fee exemptions and tax advantages, in addition to the Urban Transformation Rent Allowance.
