Why do you need to make a will? who told you that?
We were told by our  Solicitor in Scotland to make a will for our Turkish Villa as it was not covered under Scottish Law.  We foolishly did make a will in Fethiye and were told a pack of lies on how wonderful it was to make a Turkish will.  Wish we would have had the advise you can get now, we would never have bothered.  Turkish Wills are meaningless for us Brits.
My advise is to forget it.

I agree with Scunner, I am using Sule Beder who has POA for me.
It may or may not cost £20 or £30 for her to give you sound advice.  She is a lawyer and has worked with the British judicial system before.
SGK were refusing to repay  me a 8000TL medical bill.  I put Sule onto it and I am getting the lot back.

Definitely seeking advice on Turkish law is better with Sule than asking Citizens Advice!!

I am in a similar situation. I have made a British will leaving everything to my son. Our property in Turkey as it stands would have to be shared with his half brothers, whom I wish to exclude. Could I gift or sell him the property now?

You could sell it to him but it'll cost you taxes and fees to do so. You could also be liable to CGT depending on how long you've owned the property.

Jacqui we were advised by our UK solicitor, that we need to make a Will in Turkey for our apartment, as the UK Will does not cover it.

Yes, so were we.  We spend 450TL years ago makng a Will, leaving our property to our children.   Then we found out through this wonderful Forum that a Turkish Will means nothing and our house would be divided up between my husband's brother and my children and there was nothing we could do about it.  Basically, the law in Turkey about wills will divide your property up as they like to, not as you want.  So, no point in a Will.
Also, British Lawyers know nothing of Turkish laws, they just wash their hands of the responsibility of handing a foreign property.
