Bill being paid twice

We have apartments on a complex that after 7 years is not complete. We have no Tapu. There is a maintenance company running the club but we have not signed anything to say we agree they can run it and cannot get information on who has. Up till now we have paid fees to these maintenance people to enable us to use the property (total of 7 weeks use in as many years) but Utility bills we paid direct to builder as they have utilities in their name and the individual meters are not recognised by official suppliers. We have paid all bills up to date (end august 2013) direct to builder. We have today been asked to PAY AGAIN all monies since the meters were at ZERO reading...to maintenance company then claim back from builder, in order to keep the club viable! Meters were never at ZERO when we took keys to property anyway. We cannot afford to do this. Does anyone have any advice to offer? We are being told we will suffer severe penalties if we do not comply! :-(

Re: Bill being paid twice

Oh dear, 7 years on and still no TAPU, and now this, I rather think you should find yourselves a good lawyer, quickly before things go from bad to worse. Sounds very much like the builder is in severe financial difficulties if they still have not finished the complex in 7 years.

At least a lawyer will be able to find out just what the position is re Tapu's, the builders excuses for not issuing them, and this so called self appointed maintenance company.

I wish you all the very best, but I do fear that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Re: Bill being paid twice

yes, this may be an option we need to look at, getting a lawyer. Thing is, we live on a limited budget and no spare cash to pay. Its not like UK where you can get Legal aid eh! :-(

Re: Bill being paid twice

Most lawyers, at least in our limited experience, will do a half hour consultation for free. At least you can outline the problem and see if they can give you any advice on how to proceed. I hesitate to recommend lawyers or any other professionals in Turkey but I do know that Sule Bedder in Fethiye is very well thought of, and she did give me some very useful advice by email.

Re: Bill being paid twice

Oh dear, no Tapu after 7 years. Definitely speak to a lawyer. Please, please, for your own sake, try to find the money from somewhere. You are in a very serious and dangerous position. Without a Tapu, you own nothing and are paying for services on something you do not own. For all you know, "your" property may well belong to someone else.
I wish you the very best of luck.

Mary.

Thanks Mary. We are seeking advice and meeting someone tonight in fact. No more waiting. Even if we have it pay on credit card ....it's the only way we can afford to do anything.

Re: Bill being paid twice

You are not liable for maintenance until you have the tapu. Why are you paying this when you don't actually own a property?

Well, that maybe the case but if no one pays maintenance the complex will soon be in a sorry mess, with all the grounds overgrown and no pool rtc. They will most probably cut water and electric off too, just out of spite. Good luck with getting things sorted ASAP.

Somebody's name will be on the tapu, and it is them responsible for making payments.
