A WORD OF WARNING TO ANY BODY CONSIDERING BUYING OR LETTING PROPERTY
I BOUGHT A PROPERTY IN KUSADASI FROM THIS SCAM ARTIST AND GOT RIPPED OF FOR A LARGE
AMOUNT OF MONEY BY THESE PEOPLE
FIRSTLY I PURCHASED THE PROPERTY AT A HUGELY INFLATED PRICE
AND WAS NEVER TOLD OF ALL THE REQUIRED PAPERWORK THAT I WOULD NEED TO
SECURE OWNERSHIP WHICE COST ME A CONSIDERABL AMOUNT ON TOP TO PUT THIS IN ORDER
SECONDLY SHE COLLECTED A LARGE AMOUNT OF SITE MAINT FEES FROM ME AND NEVER PAID THEM TO THE RELEVANT AUTHORITIES
THIRD SHE COLLECTED ANOTHER LARGE AMOUNT FROM ME TOWARDS MAINTAINANCE REQUIRED FOR THE UPKEEP OF THE PROPERTY
AND FINALLY SHE LEASED MY PROPERTY FOR 2 AND A HALF YEARS ASSURING ME THE MONIES WERE BIENG
DEPOSITED INTO MY ACCOUNT WHEN IN FACT SHE STOLE EVERY PENNY
IF ANY ONE EVER COMES ACROSS THESE PEOPLE STEER WELL CLEAR AS THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF
AS I LEARNED THE HARD WAY
PUT IN BETTER TERMS THESE PEOPLE ARE THIEVES

Before people buy property in any foreign country they really must do their homework, the first thing on their list should be to get a lawyer who has been recommended by several people and who is independent from the builder, the second is to take their time.
Why did you pay at a hugely inflated price, did you not look around and see what prices where for a similar property.
Why did you not know what paperwork would be involved, at the end of the day anyone buying property especially in foreign countries should make themselves aware of legal paperwork , costs and time frames involved.
If you paid large amounts of money for site fees and maintenance I hope you got receipts to prove you handed over monies so that you can present them to the authorities.
Your final point about leasing your property for 2 1/2 years. You said that you were told that the money was being deposited into your account, did you never check your account or ask for records.

and from my latest visit to turkey i belive they are now operating in antalya
thats what i have been told by the local council they say they are having nemerous cases presented whareby people have been cough out by their scams
the missing paperwork was engineers and architects reports
the directors of the the siresi have decided to change the electricity supp;ier and without this paperwork
i am unable to apply to the new supplier for a meter
i belive this is a very common occurance with all sitezi in that you never realise you need these documents untill they
go to change something
as i said i paid them 2 years ago to get this paperwork but they never got it just done a runner with the money
i belive the goverment is at fault to a large extent as they should implement a law requiring that this paperwork should be part of the sale process and not issue a tapu without it
when i bought the roperty i asked them for references of before sales and they looked to be a reputable firm
my mastake as a have learned to my cost i did make numerous attempts to recieve information from the bank but the language barrier can make it really hard
