Owners Secure House Of Commons Debate

Owners who contacted their local MP (25 MP's throughout the UK, spearheaded by Justine Greening, Putney) have been successful in achieving one of their goals, getting issues regarding the buying process, the Management Plan and fraud in Turkey raised in the House of Commons.

Naomi Long (MP Belfast East) will be raising the issues on Wed 22nd Feb under the title of "Consular assistance for UK nationals who own on Turquoise Bodrum".

We are delighted with this acknowledgement of our concerns

Re: Owners Secure House Of Commons Debate

A big thank you to these people who have achieved what many of us have tried to do and failed. This is long overdue but hopefully just the start. I await the follow up post with anticipation.

Re: Owners Secure House Of Commons Debate

Thank you, yes I will keep you informed, we have had the MP's write letters etc to the relevant Turkish authorities but just kind replies so far, saying it will be noted etc etc, so this is definitely a step up the ladder for us

We all have our Tapus etc, this wasn't were the problem began for us, it was the Management Plan which of course was never discovered until well after we had all bought and the site completed, it has additional items in it that we need removed in order to have a legal say in our complex, the builders are the only ones that has a legal say in everything which resulted in them appointing the management company who lets say for now, didn't run the complex successfully for 3 years. We have taken 3 routes to try and resolve this, the Turkish courts, UK MP's and local Turkish press! the management company left a few months ago (not long after the local press article) but the Management Plan still remains and control is back to the builders directly. We have over the last few months developed a working relationship with the builder and things are getting better but we still need the Management Plan changed to have our full legal rights.

Re: Owners Secure House Of Commons Debate

Legally the British parliament can't do anything other than apply pressure but it certainly is a positive development.

I think the best recourse for those feeling disenfranchised would be the European Court of Human Rights. Some people could claim that their right to shelter was removed from them by scams and that the authorities failed to protect this right when it went through the legal system.

Thanks Supra, we are using in the Turkish courts that this is against our human rights as we can't choose what happens to the complex that we pay for

Re: Owners Secure House Of Commons Debate

Update

The House of Commons debate was on TV around 7pm tonight (UK time). Naomi Long East Belfast MP done us all proud, we wanted all issues mentioned that we read about on here, not just ours regarding the Management Plan and she successfully done that and as the management plan is not an individual issue but affects all owners on sites over 8 properties (I think it's 8), it looks like this matter will be pursued ))))

Looks like I'll be involved in the next Alliance Party campaign as a way of gratitude!!!

Here is the link, it's the link of all the debates today, so if you drag the bar about 1cm before the end (at 7:43 RHS) you will see the debate (well I hope you will, I'm no expert on computers and links )
