Re: Maintenance Charges

We bought our holiday home in 2010 and the maintenance fee has only gone up 10 percent. It depends from which house builder you buy from and how well you manage it.

Re: Maintenance Charges

The maintenance charges on a site are governed by the committee elected by the householders themselves, It has nothing whatsoever to do with the builders , only those who own properties enfranchised to vote.

These yearly meetings can set the fees as they see fit , with a quorum of votes to enable them being set.

Re: Maintenance Charges

You are correct Steve.....The Managers role and function is to set a budget and calculate the fees for each year and this usually reflects work that may need done or enhancements to the site or complex.

Thereafter the homeowners agree the expenditure based on his recommendations or their own wishes.....as a rule we have seen year on year increases averaging 12%-15% with the odd lump sum request to pay of certain debt.....for us its has become a money box overseas.....but like everything in life staff and materials have to be paid for.

Re: Maintenance Charges

I can only dream of 600TL we are paying 980tl a month

4 bed villa with a communal pool and we have to do all our own maintenance on top of that.

When we got the villa the fees were 1000 a year which I thought was reasonable but I didn't realise the charge structure was purely on square meterage so the apartments were paying ludicrously low fees seeing as the upkeep of the common parts of the apartment blocks is massive. So this year it was 2064 based on 11.50 per m2.

The apartments used to pay about 275.00 a year but that didn't come close to the upkeep of the block so they doubled it. The knock on was the stand alone villas got hammered

Worse still is the exchange rate was 2.3 when we bought paying 1000.00. If the exchange rate was still 2.3 wed be paying about 4000.00 a year

Its lucky the interest rates in Turkey are so good it takes a bit of the sting out of it.

We do love the villa though which is good as the charges are so high no one will buy it

Re: Maintenance Charges

At my apartment on Green Apart complex I pay only 100 TL per month maintenance and that covers the cost of the upkeep of the outdoor swimming pool and the full-time gardener's wage.

At Mirage Complex I pay 400 TL per month maintenance but here we have an outdoor and indoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, a barbeque area, a children's area, 24-hour security and a full-time gardener 6 days a week - so for all that, I think it is reasonable and fair.

I would never ever pay 600 TL per month maintenance ... that is way over the top, so please re-consider your possible purchase of that villa. An English friend of mine, Grant St-Clair Armstrong, has a lovely villa for sale in Gundogdu for only 45,000 ... see here perikoyvilla.com - About Perikoy Villa Grant's mobile number is 0090-538-7076-411 ... so give him a call and have a chat about it if you like?

These charges are unusually high. In my opinion it needs looking into. At the AGM there could be discussion on getting quotations from other providers. It looks like someone is on the make here.

Re: Maintenance Charges

The problem I found was the non-payers. There were both Turkish non payers and overseas non payers on our site and the manager wasnt good at getting this money in, resulting in the payers, paying extra each year to cover the shortfall. This was one of my reasons for selling the apartment that I loved......too much worry

As the original post by Iloveside is nearly a year old it would be interesting if they reposted to tell us how they got on.

Re: Maintenance Charges

Why even consider buying on a complex when you can have a private villa with your own garden and pool?

the manager wasnt good at getting this money in, resulting in the payers, paying extra each year to cover the shortfall.
Wot? Are you serious?
As for nonpayers, the management should be taking them to court to make them pay up. If they are not, they should be challenged at the AGM and either removed or put on notice. It's called taking the p1$$ and it's usually the foreign owners who end up paying.
