  1. My wife and I both have touristic RPs. I don't have experience of family RPs. Good luck.
  2. Yes, it can be done from anywhere. The only problem that I can see is that he will need to put in the details of health insurance, this may be difficult to source overseas, but if you are coming to Turkey you could buy it for him and tell him the policy number.
  3. Your solar heater probably just needs topping up. Most of them will have an expansion talk which should be refilled (not completely) with a mixture of antifreeze (same as a car) and water. Over the course of time some of this evaporates. Try it and see (I would try just water first to see if there is a leak). good luck
  4. Hi Hussam, Welcome to the Forum. Generally any UK examination can be booked and taken at a British Council office. I know that they have cut back on these over the years, so I am not sure where the nearest one is to you. I hope that this has given you a place to start. Some schools in Turkey are also teaching the IGCSE programme, they may also take private candidates for the examination. Good luck
  5. All the above is good advice. personally I would pay the 1000TL and get a good job done, and when I want it done. You will have to fork out for the noter and all the builder will do (eventually) is the cheap 60TL repair. IMHO pay the 1000TL and get it done to your satisfaction.
  6. I would agree Pete, keep your money in the UK, it is far safer. Closing a business in Turkey takes a long time and is costly too, if it is not successful.
  7. Justin, where do we find a certfied programme evaluator?
  8. The interest rate was recently reduced from about 24% to just over 19%, in TL of course. The interest rate on hard currencies is far less. I consider investing in Turkey to have above average risk, certainly there have been many foreigners who have come unstuck with local partners.
  9. We have a 4.5G portable modem that we use occasionally. I don''t think you will get a data SIM card without a residence permit. the current cost (with Turkcell) is 99TL for 15GB which is valid for 3 months. I hope that this helps. You may find a friend who is a Turk or foreigner with an RP who will take one in their name and let you use it.
  10. I have never seen a Saab in Turkey. i think you will find it hard to source spare parts, and all imported parts will be subject to customs charges. I really do advise against this.
  11. This is beginning to sound like an advertorial posting, seeking business.
  12. Yes, you can spend a maximum 90 days in Turkey but they do not have to be successive. If you spend 20 days in Greece then you can spend 20 days more in Turkey beyond your previous 90 day limit.
  13. Moving seems a lot of hassle these days
  14. All hairdressers do make up for weddings. In Isparta there is a street full of high quality hairdressers (it is the same street that the football stadium is on), There is another just opened in the Centrum garden shopping mall, but I cannot vouch for any particular one. You will probably need to book as there are many weddings in this area in summer, as relies often come over from Europe.
  15. I was wondering if the missus can buy out our place (well over 250 000 USD) which, currently, is in my sole name. Any advice from legal experts would be welcome
  16. There is also a limit on the age of the vehicle that you can import. I am not sure what it is but the Turing club can tell you http://www.turing.org.tr/
  17. I believe that if you take the phone out of Turkey and make a call on it, then the 120 day period is reset on your return.
  18. Can you but 'soya eti' in 5 star Migros Ken? We don't have one here but will call in next time I am in Antalya if they do.
  19. It would be much safer if you could meet him in your own town with family and friends close by. if he is not willing to do this you should be suspicious of him. He should want you to be comfortable.
  20. Where will you meet him for the first time? Personally I am suspicious about him. Often Turkish men do not behave well on dating sites, I have heard some horrific stories from a female friend who registered with one. i would advise that you arrange that other people are with you when you meet him for the first time if this is possible.
  21. The trıck is not to eat the soya on its own but to soak it (very small amount of water) for 15 mins, then add to Kofte mix. I guarantee you wıll not know ıt ıs ın there. Afiyet olsun
  22. You can save quite a lot of money (and, some would say be more healthy) by adding up to 20% (moist weight) soya eti to your kıyma if making Köfte. You really cannot tell the difference in taste and you will get more Köfte for your money. I used to buy it in Migros, but have not seen it for a while. https://urun.n11.com/gurme-urunler/gdo-suz-naturel-soya-kiymasi-1-kgsafir-gidaucretsiz-kargo-P225500481
  23. It is up to the agent to chase the landlord. Go to see the agent and be assertive. If this fails I believe you can serve the landlord a letter which has been notarised, to request the repairs within a reasonable time.
