Setting Up a New Household

Moving into your new home in Turkey? Find out how to get power, water and gas turned on...

Getting utilities - electricity, gas and water - connected is generally a straightforward process in Turkey. When moving into rented accommodation that was previously occupied, it is usually just necessary to transfer the account into the new tenant's name.

New owners of property need to provide a Building Use Authorisation Document in order to connect to utilities. In most cases, the previous owner can supply this document.
