jo-b is on a distinguished road
property solicitor/lawyer

I have owned a flat in Marmaris for a number of years now, and I am moving over on 3rd Sept with my son to live in it for a year or two. Until now I have been renting the flat through an agency for years and the current tenants for 18mths. I asked the agency to give the tenants notice to quit 2mths ago, so in total it will be 10wks by the time we arrive. I completed on the sale of my flat in England and so do not have anywhere to live other than my flat in Marmaris.

My son and I have been travelling in a motorhome for the last 2mths in Ireland in order to give the tenants the 2mths notice which the agency told me that they needed (although the contract states 1mth). The agency told me that they informed the tenants of my arrival. The lease contract for the tenants was 1yrs but they have continued to live there with no contract renewal.

Today the agency told me that the tenants are refusing to move out as they cannot find anywhere else to live and intend to stay in the flat until the end of the season. My flat is 2 bed and rented at a reasonable rate of 550TL mth. I have paid for my flights, insurance etc etc.

I do not have the funds to rent anywhere else, especially as other rental prices seem much higher than what I have been charging for my flat. With a couple of weeks to go before I arrive I need to ensure that the tenants leave. The agency don't seem to know what to do and are asking me for advice.

So can anyone tell me how to evict the tenants, and how long this takes. Also of any good Solicitors/lawyers who deal with such issues to enforce this???

Re: property solicitor/lawyer

With newish renting laws could take a while to evict the present renters and they probably know that if they are being difficult. you may need to take a court case out against them which takes time and money, try and get the agency to come up with some kind of amicable deal with them, if not see a lawyer. this is just my opinion bye the way.

Re: property solicitor/lawyer

Surely this is why you have used an agency. It is their responsibility to solve this as quickly as possible. You do not pay agency fees to have to solve problems with tenants yourself.

Re: property solicitor/lawyer

Are you paying the agents a monthly fee or did you make a one off payment?

If monthly, I would expect them to assist as much as possible, but in the end you will have to instruct a solicitor. Unfortunately, once a solicitor is instructed the matter can take months to resolve

Re: property solicitor/lawyer

It would depend on the contract with the agency, it doesnt follow that they wil pursue any legal routes they may just be contracted to find tennants and collect the rent. Check your contract.

Re: property solicitor/lawyer

Sorry but something is not quite right.

You say you sold your UK property and yet say you do not have any funds to pay for accommodation in Turkey!
Whether you received any money from the sale is another matter, or just sold it to clear a mortgage again is your business.

But, If you do not have any funds (apart from the sale of your UK property) what do you intend to live off?

Maybe you should consider driving over to Turkey in your motor-home and live in that until you can move into your apartment.

Are you thinking or intending to try and work in Turkey to support yourself, as has been said on a great many occasions, whilst foreigners working in Turkey is not impossible 'it is almost impossible to get a work visa'.
As you do not indicate what your nationality is, I'm 'assuming' you are British and not Turkish.

From your information above, I fear so far you have a very badly thought out plan which you really need to re-asses all of your options.

Sorry but good, because I think you are going to need it.
