Bailiffs in Turkey

Hi all, any advise would be much appreciated.

My partner and i have now won two court cases both reasonable sums of money. Our lawyer started the bailiff process against one in May, 2012 and the other one a couple of months ago. Now all that happens is that we get accused of pestering him when we want an update on how the process is going and that if he does not tell us anything, its because there is nothing to tell. We know that the first case owns property, cars etc the second case owns a number of hotels and properties. To date, we have received nothing back other than paying 10% of the reward amount to get the baillifs involved.

My question is - does anyone else have any experience of the baillifs or results. Does it genuinely take this long and cost so much?

Something tells me that this is not right as we were always led to believe, by the lawyer, that the bailiff process was quick and inexpensive

Thanks in advance for any advice or similar experiences

Not much different from the system in England then.

Re: Bailiffs in Turkey

Although it is a couple of years ago, when our lawyers instructed the bailiffs to recover money owing on a senet. In the first instance the man was given a date by which the money had to be paid. I think it was several months. We were after the offenders car and also machinery which was held in his factory.

The bailiffs couldn't find the car due to it being hidden most of the time. However, we were out and about one day and saw the person going into a restaurant, we phoned our lawyer who then phoned the police. I'm told the police checked their computer system to make sure we had claim on the car and then sent a tow truck who removed the car and put into the police car pound. The only way the person could get the car back was by paying up in cash which he did.

The bailiffs had a list of machinery that needed to be seized. The person owing us money was given a date by which he had to pay all the money, if he didn't, the bailiffs would be sent in. The day came, he hadn't paid us our money. The bailiffs went to the factory together with the police because there is usually trouble. The owner of the factory tried locking the bailiffs out but the bailiffs broke in. The owner asked for 1 hour to get the money, within 1 hour he was back with the money.

These people must been given a date by which they must pay you so I'm wondering what the delay is and would be asking your lawyer how long they were given to pay.

Re: Bailiffs in Turkey

Does anyone remember the post that was about some folks getting letters to say they have to repay their MC fee as it had been pocketed by the staff?

There was a link to a newspaper article, I can't remember who posted the original post!

If someone could point me in the right direction I'd like to read the article again.
