Ripped off - Huyesin Tavaci Akbuk, Didim

Update on our situation now I have heard from our solicitor. Our villa was auctioned by the bank at the beginning of November 2011 to recover the unpaid debt Huyesin Tavaci took out on it, despite having been paid in full by us for the villa. We had our last court hearing at the end of November 2011, just over three years since we started the case.

As getting what we had paid for, i.e. our villa, was not an option as it had been sold, the courtís decision was that we should have our money back. Albeit at todayís rate of exchange, making the total £10,000 less than we paid.

Our solicitor now tells us that as the ďlosing partyĒ all court costs etc. should have been paid by Tavaci Ė but they have not. So, in order to have any chance of getting any money back, we have to go to another court and pay more money to get them to enforce the decision of the first court! Has anyone ever heard anything so ridiculous? He has not paid the first court costs and obviously has no intention of so doing nor has he any intention of paying us back, and is therefore in breach of the court ruling. Why are we now expected to pay to get this court decision acted upon?

Surely by defying the courtís decision, this man should be arrested and brought to book by the Turkish legal system? Not us! Or is this because we are not Turkish? Would this situation exist with a Turkish person being ripped off by another Turkish person? Somehow, I donít think so.

At todayís rate of exchange, our solicitor is asking for another £4,600. This on top of the £17,000 odd we have already had to pay in court and solicitorís fees. As we had spent our savings buying the villa, we had to take out a bank loan for these fees, which we will be repaying until November 2013. I have repeatedly told our solicitor that we do not have any money, but he seems to ignore this. Maybe he thinks that we are lying to him and have bottomless pockets. We are unable to save thousands of pounds each year out of our state pensions! We need what we receive to live on. A fact which seems to escape the intelligence of some Turkish people.

It is indeed unfortunate that we trusted a Turkish national and his solicitor to conduct an honest deal with us for the property and then we further trusted the Turkish legal system to give us justice when it was obvious that the deal was crooked. So, two mistakes!

One thing that has come out of this whole situation is this. Huyesin Tavaci is patently cleverer than the whole Turkish legal system. He is able to thumb his nose at the authorities and basically tell them (and us) to f---- off! This secure in the knowledge that nothing will happen to him.

What an indictment of Turkish justice! A travesty!!

Maisie

Re: Rip off - Again!

Not only an indictment of Turkish justice but also an indictment of the country itself.A true picture of their compulsion to steal and fleece all foreigners as yours is not an isolated case.

Re: Rip off - Again!

Maisie: I have just told the Bailies as they paid for a villa in your complex. They are really sympathetic. I don't think the Bailies could have handled it as they have not been well lately.

Many may not agree, but Turkish courts do not discriminate against foreigners....they have to abide by the law.

Maisie has your solicitor opened an Icra File against Huseyin Tavaci to retrieve your money. Has there been holds put on any of his assets...does he have any?

Re: Rip off - Again!

Hi Alison - what is an Icra File? As to assets: as I have said before, on paper he owns nothing, is destitute and I assume relies on the good offices of his family (who have all the wealth) to support him and his lavish lifestyle. I am sure he does not have a "job" nor will he be paying tax. I would not be surprised if he could produce receipts to show that his family paid for the shirt on his back!

Hence my comment, that he can thumb his nose at everything legal.

Maisie

Maisie
Maisie, an Icra File is an file/injunction started at the Execution Office (Icra Dairesi) to retrieve debt.
I have heard of people going to jail for debt not paid.

The Icra Dairesi is basically the Bailiffs Office. This is where debts are put against Tapus, cars, any assets...sometimes resulting in the property or vehicle being auctioned.
