Contract Law


Contracts are set of rules that form the basis of many relations in daily life. This is why contracts have to be drafted, prepared and signed with diligence and utmost attention. Seeds of most of the disputes arising from contracts are sowed by not being diligent when drafting or negotiating contracts or by not clearly agreeing on some subjects mentioned or not mentioned in the contracts. That is why a legal practice called contract law was born; it requires a complete command of regulations, court precedence, doctrine and practice while also foreseeing risks and possible disputes as well as experience and understanding in legal vocabulary, strategy and contract negotiations.


Sales contract is the type of contract that involves the transfer of ownership of an article for a certain price. Contracts for the sale of securities are subject to freedom of form. In cases where there is no contrary provision in the law, the parties have the opportunity to prepare a sales contract without establishing any written or official transaction. As a matter of fact, heavier and more formal form requirements were stipulated for real estate sales contracts. Since these contracts are issued in the title deed and completed by direct registration process, it is not possible to determine them separately in practice. For this reason, real estate sales promises, which are pre-contracts in terms of name and content, take place as borrower transactions regarding the sale of immovables in practice. The promise to sell real estate is issued ex officio by the notary public and registered in the land registry in order to be able to make judgements against third parties. Real estate sales promises can be terminated with the will of the parties; The performance of the contract is terminated spontaneously in the event that the performance is expired and the contract is unilaterally terminated.

However, the responsibility of the lessor in practice comes to the agenda with the most shame and seizure situations.

In such cases, the lessee may claim compensation for termination of the contract and damages based on the removal of the defect, the deduction of the price or the debtor’s default in accordance with the provisions of Article 304 and subsequent provisions of the Code of Obligations. In the case of restraint; third parties are liable for any damages that may arise if they claim a right incompatible with the rights of the lessee.
