Talking Cancer didnt kill me turkey's my recovery

Firstly I want to say happy new year..
Marahba

Ive just been given the clear for cancer and am slowly recovering, I am seriously thinking I want to find a property in turkey to retire and have some quality of life before the devil comes back. (dr says it will).

I cant have anymore chemo as it took the sight in my right eye. so for the time I may have been given I need to know how is the best way of finding a property and getting residence?? I have heard if I get a visa for 6 months this would help with this???

I am looking into 2(large for conversion) 3 bedroomed bungalow not ultra modern, pool is a must, no works to be done on the property.
I would need to be no more than half hour frm nearest hospital.
Not on a complex as I don't want to incure further yearly charges for maintainence. but I don't want to be miles away from people either.

stairs and hillside is not for us. unless we get a skate board. heheeh
At this time we looking abt £85.0000
Who knows I may even get my passion for photography back again...
I have been to may parts of turkey and am interested in Fet, dlayan,those kind of areas.. old Turkish property would be lovely but would have to meet our requirements.

im hoping to try and sort all this for a move 2016 or sooner if possible. no loose ends to tie here.

Re: Cancer didnt kill me turkey's my recovery

Hi, welcome to the forum.

Congratulations on beating cancer, I'm sure you're feeling ready for a break and a bit of sun, sea and sand. I'm sure you deserve it.

I have a Turkish friend who moved from Istanbul (centre, from a big house overlooking the Bosphorus) to a quiet fishing village called Cesmealti near Urla, Izmir. He was told by his doctors that he didn't have long to live (cancer) he'd had a few operations (lost a kidney) and wanted to rest and prolong his life by being somewhere calm and peaceful. So far he's doing really well! His doctors are very surprised at his current condition, so I think you could be making a wise move.

As for your questions. Residency can be applied for once you're in Turkey (at the moment, but that condition could change later in the year) and there are certain criteria you have to meet, including showing money in a bank account, having private health insurance (unless you're over 65) and having an address. You could also consider renting instead of property purchase, as the pound is very strong at the moment so you get more for your quid, and that way you'd have the option to move about and really see Turkey, and find the ideal place for you.



I hope you find what you're looking for, good luck.

Charlotte

Re: Cancer didnt kill me turkey's my recovery

Well done and good luck. I think it may have been be good advice for you to consider renting may take a lot of the potential stress and work of ownership from you and renting is still very cheap over here compared to uk.

Re: Cancer didnt kill me turkey's my recovery

Welcome and congratulations on beating the big C . I would suggest as Stuart did to rent, before considering buying .
There would be less bureaucracy and stress in renting ,and give you time to get a feel for the place and see where you would like to stay . Anyway I wish you all the best in your new quest .

Re: Cancer didnt kill me turkey's my recovery

I'm also in remission from Cancer, mine was diagnosed while I was living in Turkey, although it was diagnosed by Dr's in Fethiye, I had a biopsy in Fethiye too, BUT any treatment for it, ie Chemo I had to go to Antalya as the Devlet hospital in Fethiye was not equipped to treat me.

Which ever area you choose it might be wise to check that your nearest hospital would be able to fully treat you if you are diagnosed again. Although Antalya University hospital was amazing as regards to what equipment they have etc it is a really awful 4:30 hr drive from Fethiye and when your not feeling well the 8 hours there and back is very very tiring, not to forget, expensive on fuel and car hire.

Best wishes for continued health.

Re: Cancer didnt kill me turkey's my recovery

Welcome to the Forum. If you want to live a stress free life in Turkey, I would rent as others have advised. The buying process can be full of problems and it would be such a shame if after all your battles, you encounter more battles in the buying process. Good luck and good health.

Re: Cancer didnt kill me turkey's my recovery

Hi Mumma.
So glad to hear you are winning your battle, good vibe stories are hard to come by these days.
Just on a helpful note, the people who have replied to you advising renting as a better option to buying, have been kicking around on this forum for years, and in my opinion have got it spot on, without going in to any detail of the pitfalls of buying in Turkey,(of which they are many) selling is fraught with problems too, whereas renting leaves you in control of your own destiny.
Good luck either way.
Good health
martin
