Everything worked out great but we set a ten year review and possible sale, which worked out very well.
Would I recommend an off plan purchase?
Absolutely not. I'm with Steve on this.
We were lucky. Some of our neighbours weren't.
If it takes months to do your research, please do it.
Blimey you were brave!!
I have bought off plan and it worked out well but since then I've seen so many that didn't so I'm more wary these days.

Re: Info about Akbuk

We bought off plan too !
Didn't know any better at the time but went on recommendation of friends of ours who had known the emlak for 12 years. I told him I would not impulse buy and didn't bring a credit card with me , but would go home and have a long think about it
He ferried us around all week and we ended up looking at 27 villas (some we didn't even get out of the car for)
At the end of the week I told him we wanted
Somewhere where the balconies were not just 6 feet apart from next door
Our own front gate (not shared )...Kath hated the thought of having someone stroll by while you were sunbathing in your own area

We ended up at the end of the week with just one possible and went home . The emlak kept in touch for the next 8 months but informed us by email our possible had been bought, so when we next came over , I had spent all winter seeking out more possibles and shortlisted 2
He took us to the first one and it looked good from the outside , but inside had THE worst 8-9 inch concrete dado "rail" all around the living room and arched over the kitchen entrance , and the tiling in the main bathroom was terrible
We were heading towards the second when he said "Look Ted, I know what Kath likes and the bedrooms in your second one are way too small, A builder friend of mine is building 3 villas . all joined together in a good area so I will take you there"

We ended up in a field just off a main road , there were 3 bars nearby and we would only be 2 minutes by car into town, so we went with him to the architects office and looked at the plans (I can actually read tech drawings , so asked if we could switch to the right hand villa which was obviously bigger)

We did that and the emlak sent many pics and we came the year after and signed for it
luckily the builder was OK with us , he put basic stuff in and since then we have upgraded a toilet, the soar panels and a few other little things
We have our own gate , an 8 foot by 12 foot area just through the gate where my bike lives, a 3 foot path along the pool and a ground floor patio which is 23 feet by 16, as well as a top floor terrace 16 feet by 12 feet
We are the last villa on our road and have just had a side road done by the council, so well pleased (I do realise we were VERY lucky)
