I got my student residence permit! My school did all of that Now my wife also studies but her school is different they dd not do that and say you yourself should do. they just make an appointment and insurance. The only thing we need is the house contract confirmation. They said that you should go to notary. It is somewhat expensive as I know. there is another way I am not sure whether is possible or not. The bank wants my friend to show the confirmation in the contract. He went to the nüfus dairesi (population directorate) and they gave him a letter which confirms his contract without paying anything! Could I do that too?
So after going thru so much trouble to get into this flat I have seen that it was a huge mistake. So the major problem that I have is the landlord who I realize is a 'slum lord'. I had to call him and ask if anyone had ever complained of the elk bill. In Feb I was here all of 20 days and it was over 200 tl. March was nearly 250. April was 175. May was 142. I cannot understand this as I have nothing. I literally use elk for a lamp, my computer, the hot water shower thing, and to boil water for tea. I never bought a fridge and washer. long story there. Use friends washer and the fridge is useless as I am one person and usually eat outside. So the elk has a problem. But he said... no one has ever complained. Then we have the water issue.. its always above 50 tl. how?!?!?!?! again he said no one ever complained. And then it got warm. I was sleeping and woke up to find ants in my bed. Not one or two... I mean like 100! And they were hundreds on the floors. I smashed them and called the land man immediately. He said to get the spray because no one ever complained before and they were coming from the garden. I can't use the spray as I have asthma and a cat. He told me like 5 times to use the spray. it was endless. So I suggested that he caulk the floors as I could see holes in the baseboards. He told me to do it. Ok. I did. I spend nearly 100 tl on that stuff.. only to find the ants still coming in. So last month when I paid the rent I told him that I will leave. small white lie. I said that I would be gone by August 10. He said to meet him on august 10 to hand over keys. But here it is July 1 and I look like I have been to war. I have dozens of bites and my cat does too. So the question is: seeing as how I gave a deposit of the amount of the rent and I want to leave July 20, can I say to him that I will leave July 20 and he can keep the deposit and I will pay all bills to zero and call it quits? I mean is that not what the deposit if for? He would not give it back anyhow even if I had only stayed here one day. I realize this now. I just don't want any problems with the police and all. I am not sure what the process is here when someone wants to out someone from a flat. I mean, do they call the police and have the police bother you? Do they report you to the courts? I am leaving of my own will with no problems. I just want to leave here and live like a normal person!!! HELP!!!!!
So today my issue is with the rent contract/agreement I need to bring to renew my residence permit. I did not get a new agreement but now that I am asking for one, my landlord and the emlak (real estate agent) are asking for 400TL! This not only seems extremely shady and possibly illegal, but I also can't afford this. So, the questions are: Is it normal to pay that much for a contract, which would normally be my right to have? Is there another way to prove that I live here? Would just a letter from my landlord, signed and notarized be enough?
