Maybe people would have had fewer problems if they had ignored ‘A Place in the Sun’ in the first place.

Re: A Place in the Sun Live-NEC 2011

i bought my place after going to a place in the Sun. I don;t think they vet the exhibitors to see if they are bone fide but i don;t think it is cheap to exhibit there so that would put some scoundrels off !

Perhaps we should have a TLF stall there and give potential buyers the truth about it all.

Im still waiting for my habitation certificate and will be over the moon when i do get it . It will be the end of an anxious wait.

I wonder how many Turkish builders will be there this year ,

One thing for sure the programme from which the exhibition comes from should be made aware of the pitfalls of buying in a foreign country from those that have experienced the raw end of it.

l couldn't agree with you more.

l remember that series when they promoted Turkeys property industry,but did not do their proper research into how the system deals with foreign buyers.All they did was praise the side Turkey wants to see.And hide the real truth about what they have planned so not to ruin their money making scam.

l wonder how much of a back hander place in the sun had to cover things up.
More like a place in Hell is close to the mark

I would imagine they already know, but knowing and doing anything about it is a different story.

The main problem is that it's OLD news going back to at least the early 1980s that I know of and as we know they are not interested in old news because it no longer makes headlines or sells news print.

Are we guaranteed another long thread of just talk? Re -hashing it all but doing nothing.

If I didn't have all my documents, its where I would be!

Maybe if anyone on TLF lives in Kalkan they can ask Jane Ebeling what she thought her move to Turkey was really like!

A Place in the Sun | News and features - From Colchester To Kalkan
Quote:
It was during her stay in Kalkan last October that Jane Ebeling, a 73-year-old widow from Essex, decided she wanted to be in the pretty Turkish resort on a more permanent basis.
And obviously she did have one thing going for herself which was having someone in the business to start with, which is something that most people don't have going for them.

****************

Truth be told I don't believe this and consider it either a work of fiction or a journalist using his/her licence to manipulate the facts.

A 73 year old up-sticks and buys a property for £184,000, and a move that only took from start to finish approximately 2 weeks:-

""The total cost of Jane’s move, including a full pack and unpack service, the 20-foot container delivered to her home, marine insurances and customs clearance, was around £6,500, which Jane believes is a lot less than purchasing everything again from new in Turkey.""

Re: A Place in the Sun Live-NEC 2011

I agree with Carolk and I've said it before when this expo was on last year, those of us who have been ripped off and want justice should go just to raise awareness. I am still willing to attend but I'm not going on my own. Last year there was a lot of talk but it just fizzled out, we need to stick together to help each other and we need to do something not just talk about what needs doing.
