Who is in your apartment?

Who is in your apartment?

This subject is well know to those owners of Turquoise.
The subject of someone staying in your property without your knowledge, without your permission, and without any kind of re-numeration.

These rumours started at Turquoise, where friends of owners started reporting guests staying in apartments without the correct procedure being followed, ie. permission from the owner! Apparently this was all put down to errors in scheduling and forgotten emails. I think the manager at the time was removed from his position. I mention no names for obvious reasons.

The disease has now moved on to FCC. I now have photographic, and documentary evidence to prove that a guest has been staying in an apartment without the knowledge of the owner. The people involved know who they are, and I know who they are. They were certainly not clever enough to cover their tracks.

I hate liars and deceitfulness. We are seeing a lot of this of late.
I hope people wake up to this before it is too late.

Is your property in the right hands? Who has access to your keys?

Re: Who is in your apartment?

If you are worried that builders still have spare keys to your place or keys have got into the wrong hands. Why not do as we did. Go to the nearest key cutting / locksmith shop show them your keys and ask about buying new lock barrels and fit them yourself. We had to high security dead bolting locks on our door and it didnt cost us 25TL to replace both with 5 new keys to each 5 minutes work and a phillips screwdriver to hand. Now i know only we have keys and no one else. As added security we closed each door internally and locked them all from within the hallway and left keys still half turned in those locks also to prevent anyone coming in the windows having access to the whole apartment or the front door. Not that I think anyone would try venture through the window or balcony doors but still airs on side of caution.

Re: Who is in your apartment?

The only problem with closing all the internal doors is that in the wintertime you stop the air circulating which will encourage damp and the dreaded black mould to grow.

Closing the doors in the summertime is grand but imho a no-no in winter.

Re: Who is in your apartment?

Years ago when we still had our first apartment in Yali we also had the feeling someone had been staying there in our absense and without our knowledge. It was little things (also rather unpleasent) of a stain on a new mattress, a missing pair of jeans, some kitchen utensils also missing and a rug moved from is usual place in the lounge to one of the bedrooms - a bedroom which we had never used. I also would not ever ever ever have left to loo in the state it was in when we next visited.
We never got to the bottem of it and sold the place soon after, but it was rather un-nerving at the time.
Another good reason to buy non-complex, which is what we did second time around.

I fitted plastic air vent this year in the main living room and bedrooms so the air can circulate and we will leave all internal doors open hopefully that will cure the damp problem but we wont know until next year lol so will keep you posted next year.

Re: Who is in your apartment?

Good idea we did the same also and in addition fitted metal louvres to the bathrooms, no glass so always a draught and until this year when we had a bit of water ingress due to a problem on the roof it has always been damp free in winter.

I try to combat that a little by leaving bowls of salt in the middle of the rooms to try to absorb the damp in the air. So far so good no signs or smells of damp.

Re: Who is in your apartment?

Can't you tell by your electric meter readings whether any electricity has been used while you have been away? No usage should mean no unwanted guests.
