I am sorry to hear what you have been through but it does unlined the fact that some people are leaving themselves wide open to be ripped off, not that I condone such behaviour as it is wrong and you should go to the authorities.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.

they had offices in kusadasi and guzulcamli 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

Hope you can recover some of the money. I am sure you would do things differently if you could do it over again. I used a realtor in Kusadasi{Kale} and checked with them frequently. In the end I paid for 2 deeds to get 1, no repairs were made and I had renters {paying someone] for a short time and some other issues. I have sold Real Estate for a living and barely made it through the maze. There are more scams than a novice here can imagine. Until the industry is properly regulated and testing done this is my one and only purchase.
