  1. Mr. IbrahimAbi, Thank you for your reply , developer mean construction company. Usually I get a good advices from you Mr. IbrahimAbi, but this time I did not like your reply at all, because: - I am in a trouble and I need some useful advices and not a lessons. - Secondly I did not judge the country, I said I will leave the country if it was true what I heard from my friends, and that is very different. I am still waiting for some advices hopefully from others.
  2. Hi everyone I still can not believe what is happened to us, we had a water leakage in our very new apartment, spoke to the developer , he was willing to fix it , we were very surprised by his way, because we know he is not a good helper, anyway we trust his attitude. He sent a plumber to inspect the problem, and the developer decided to fix it on his cost. the plumber came made more damages , broke the ceramic in the bathroom , then he left and refuse to come back , talked to the developer again and he show us his real face and his usual rudeness, the developer refuse to continue fixing.

  11. Hi Eglegal, (In the absence of a cost breakdown you are not aware of how much VAT you have actually paid to the contractor.) - Indeed I bought the apartment directly from a contractor, and I have an invoice which shows how much VAT in that invoice , it was 1% and also written how much in TL. But where I should start to reclaim the VAT? What I need to show the authorities beside the invoice? And is the process easy or I should get some help, especially I do not speak Turkish yet? BR
