First, you need to create an appointment from the Land Registry and Cadastre Directorate, where the real estate is located. At the time of appointment, all buyers, and sellers (or their proxies) in the deed must be present with identification documents. For illiterate buyers and sellers, two witnesses must be brought without kinship. Paid tuition receipts should be given to the officer performing the transaction.  In the contracting room, the sales documents must be signed by all buyers and sellers. 

At the beginning of the most important stages that should be considered in this process, the declaration of the title deed fee comes, which is the stamp duty and is 4% of the purchase price. Because if a false or incomplete statement is made, both buyer and seller may face various penalties in future processes.
