Which buildings fall under the scope of urban transformation?
Urban transformation is a project that covers all provinces of Turkey, not just Istanbul or other big cities.
If the residence building needs renovation and has completed its economic life, all that needs to be done is to apply with a petition to the licensed companies related to the ministry. If the building is found to be risky as a result of the examinations made on the building upon the application, it will be included in the scope of urban transformation.
Those living in slums can also benefit from the advantages of urban transformation. If the title deed of the land is within the scope of the treasury land and the residents of the slum are in the position of "occupant", the land can be purchased from the state and a building can be built within the scope of urban transformation.
Buildings with condominium and floor alliances, including buildings with illegal land titles, can also benefit from urban transformation.
Buildings with registered artifacts are outside the scope of the law.
The areas that cannot benefit from the urban transformation law are the buildings in the front view of the Bosphorus. Buildings with registered artifacts are not covered by the law as they are also registered with the Ministry of Culture. However, a separate regulation is expected regarding the retrofitting of buildings with registered artifacts.
How to benefit from urban transformation?
Citizens who want to benefit from urban transformation should first obtain an earthquake risk report for buildings and determine that the building is risky.
Organizations with technical equipment affiliated to the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization determine whether the building is risky or not. Those who want to reach these organizations will see a map of Turkey when they enter the website of the ministry. When they choose the city they are in, the list of organizations licensed by the ministry opens. An application can be made to an organization selected from this list.
When applying to these organizations, let's say there is a building with 20 flats. Not all flat owners living in this building need to apply. When only one person living in the building applies, the technical studies requested by the ministry and stipulated by the regulations are carried out by the relevant institutions and an earthquake risk report is created. Organizations that receive the earthquake risk report submit this report to the ministry on behalf of people who want to benefit from urban transformation and get approval, and the building that is approved to be risky is included in the scope of urban transformation.
