Laws in Turkey changing 30/09?

Hubby and I were out today speaking to a Turkish friend and politics etc came into the conversation, he told us that all of the laws/rules in Turkey were being changed on the 30/09 this year to come in line with policies from the EU, has anyone out there heard anything about this?

Whatever they change is bound to cost us as foreigners, thought it may be better to be forewarned as to what!

Re: Laws in Turkey changing 30/09?

yes Erdoğan is revealing his ''democratization' plan on the Monday 30th
i thnk a lot of it will be changes to treatment of Kurdish people visa vis language in education and changes to allow the use of Kurdish alphabet as there are letters that Turkish computers cant handle the letters

However we will have to wait and see
heres a couple of articles you may find interesting
have a good look at the first and last paragraphs in Burak Bekdils article he knows what he's talking about
POLITICS - All will be surprised by democracy package: Turkish PM Erdo?an
RIGHTS - Ban on Kurdish letters to be lifted with democracy package

BURAK BEKD?L - The shrewd conqueror

Nothing like having a negative outlook I must say. The new laws on residency for instance, once implemented, are a positive I would have said, as quite a few legislative changes have been, especially regarding building work. Mind you, legislating and enforcing are two different things.

Re: Laws in Turkey changing 30/09?

Must admit, the last big changes to several Laws in Turkey either saved me a fortune (Residence Permit costs) or allowed me to maximise my profit if I sold my house (removal of restrictions on foreigners buying/selling of land and property in villages).

As for what will be included in the Democracy Package on Monday, I prefer to just wait and see, rather than listen to political commentators with their own agendas.

Re: Laws in Turkey changing 30/09?

I know, just have a bit of a downer on the country at the minute, it has seemed that every new ruling that has come including with residence permits has either caused us trouble or cost us money. I do usually have a positive outlook, hopefully after this house sale we're going through has been finished it will return

Giglets (Dave) what laws changed about foreigners buying/selling in villages, I've been trying to find out about that but can't find any literature anywhwere? Would be most helpful if you could maybe point me in the right direction?

Thanks all for your replies, has made me feel more easy about what is going to come on Monday, have a good weekend all

Sara

Re: Laws in Turkey changing 30/09?

Another positive piece of legislation in recent times, in my book at any rate, has been the ability to join the government health scheme. This and the quality of treatment we have both received has been absolutely wonderful.

In my husband's case back surgery undergone earlier this year has eased a problem of 50 years and has made a life changing difference.

Re: Laws in Turkey changing 30/09?

Carolyn, again, that didn't help us either, as we have a company we would have had to pay bag kur and not sgk and when we approached our accountant he said it would cost us 'around 600tl a month' so good luck to all who found it better but we had to stick to private insurance at a third of that cost.

If we had come to Turkey knowing what we do now all would have been great but we have had to learn a lot of things the hard way, we would have done lots different but then hindsight as they say is wonderful

Re: Laws in Turkey changing 30/09?

Sarah,

In relation to the Law change last August, it allowed foreigners to own/buy/sell land and properties within villages, which was very difficult before then.

I haven't got a Link, but I think there may be an older Thread about it, if you use the Search facility on here.

We verified the whole thing with a visit to the local Tapu office and also through an independent lawyer.

As far as SGK/Bag Kur is concerned, Marian and I pay 245 TL per month for SGK and friends of ours have Bag Kur and pay about 275 TL a month, both as married couples.
We have used the system a few times and found it to be first class whether you get free treatment at the State Devlet, or pay a very small extra amount to go Private.

All in all, a great service to have.

Re: Laws in Turkey changing 30/09?

Thanks Dave,

I did search for the new village land laws but couldn't find anything, we've got a friend in the tapu office at Bodrum and it seems that although the law has been passed it hasn't filtered to there yet, so am waiting along with a lot of others to have ours in our own name at last.

As for the Bar Kur, we checked, the re-checked but as we are both counted as directors of the non trading company we would both have to pay it (according to the accountant) hence the 600 ish tl a month for the both of us. He knows we are married and we pointed out that sgk covers spouse and children and asked why Bar Kur didnt do the same he gave us the spiel about being directors.

Re: Laws in Turkey changing 30/09?

Sarah,

Why don't you just go straight to the horse's mouth and ask the Bag Kur people directly?

The village Law thing, I don't know all the ins and outs and can only speak as I have found.

Maybe different areas are introducing it at different times?
