Urgent help, agent not returning my deposit

Hi,
I'm in Istanbul, dealt with this agency for month, Remax in Atasehir, Metin in the owner, he is refusing to return my deposit because I didn't agree on the lower price of the sale, the reason is to avoid paying taxes.
Now he claims I'm the one who cancelling the sale as a result he is retaining deposit + commission.

I'm looking for a solicitor in Istanbul urgently because I'm only here for couple of days.

Remax Deha in Atasehir, stay away

Re: Urgent help, agent not returning my deposit

Sorry for whats happened to you ... I don't know of a property solicitor in Istanbul .. but have you thought Remax branches are franchised and licensed to use the Remax name so have to comply with the Turkish ReMax HQ rules. Their HQ is in Istanbul for Turkey and with it being an international model it might have a complaints procedure against a franchisee. Good luck whatever happens.

Did you sign a contract with Remax or with the individual agent?
Try Zabita for a steer in the right direction. They deal with consumer problems.

Re: Urgent help, agent not returning my deposit

I appointed a solicitor today, hopefully I will get something back, but I'm also aiming for a fraud case against them.

Good idea to look at their hq, thanks for the tip

Hope it all works out for you.

Worth a note to posters, you can put yourself in a dodgy position by publicly naming & accusing people of almost anything in Turkey. And there’s plenty of lawyers out there who will take those cases up, when it comes to non-nationals.
