Trevor on another posting has kindly given us the cost being charged by his developer to connect both electricity and water, 1500.

Can anyone else add their charges here for comparisons. My developer has just asked for a little over 3000 for the same service with little chance of connecting water in the near future.

I paid 400 for water meter and connection and 170 for electric meter and connection in September 2007. I think the electric has now gone up to 540 for non TC home owners.

Our builder asked nothing. It was already included in the price of the contract. We just had to pay for the meters. 150 water, 180YTL electric.

The final price depends on the size of the development, and the infastructure. Eg the distance from the main electric pylon and main water pipes to the houses/apartments. So every development will have a different price. To have your electric and water "meter" is a standard fixed charge from Kib Tek and the local authority.

On the same development and am also awaiting this ridiculous bill. We will have to stick together on this and i'm sure it's E trying to claw back money they have lost. Has anyone else on the forum had costs which are in this region or are we the only ones. Nobody minds paying what is fair, however using this as a way to recuperate losses is outrageous and so blatant...

what trevor failed to mention was, that the 1500 that they took for connection is also supposed to be in part a deposit in case we don't pay some bills. but they didn't say how much is for what. at that time my head was exploding with facts and figures. the good thing about chelsey village is the electric is free for the time being as a gesture of goodwill . good for people living there. hardly relevent to the rest of us.

Reading through all the replies above it looks like the developer can ask what he likes regarding connection charges . Nearly three years ago the estate agent told me the connection charges would be in the region of 250 now i am told by Evergreen that the charge is over 3000 when asked to justify this sum no answer . Who do you go to for complaints solicitors don't want to know these developers need to be shamed and solicitors need to tighten up contracts so that builders / developers cant get away with the many things that they are at the moment getting away with .

Nightmare on charges with electric also, but i'd suggest asking for a itemised breakdown as i have (still waiting). On the stage payment shortages (i also had the same) i went back through all my statements and also contacted the bank as i paid the transfer charges separately. It seems they may also (like my developer) be trying to pass on their bank charges. Is this your final/ snagging payment?

Hi All,



Sounds very much like.....Tails I win (the developer) heads you lose!



Not a very honourable way of conducting business!



QUESTION.

Did your advocate give you a schedule of taxes and duties, and when due.?

Did your advocate advise you of essential connection charges, and maximum amounts?

Did your advocate advise you that penalties in the contracts are rarely recoverable?

Did your advocate advise that judgement debts in the TRNC are irrecoverable?

Does your advocate owe YOU a duty of care?

Did your advocate give you a letter of appointment, advising what you could expect from his/her practice, in return for your "up front" fees?



HPBG site (Marion Stokes) wanted to sue an advocate as a test case! Perhaps we should all be putting our hands in our pockets, and supporting that initiative. The HPBG reckoned that 70% of the problems in buying property in TRNC lay with the advocates!.



I am up for it!. Any takers?

Im up for it!!

Just got a letter via my advocate from someone working for her to try and sort out the problem I have with the developer, in short it says if you pay him 50 an hour we will attempt to come to some sort of negotiation, its highly unlikely we will, but we will charge you anyway, and if we havent resolved this in the 6 months more he is stating it will take to finish your villa, he is entitled to keep 20,000 of your money, and try to recoup the rest when and if he sells the property.

I was never told that the contract I signed was not worth the paper it was written on, and I paid up front fees!

Chris,



I would take advise from Marion Stokes at HPBG site. She is a first class very knowledgable in these things and would probably point you to an appropriate advocate for the circumstances

that you relate.

I am so sorry for the stress that all of this is clearly causing you.



Take care,

John
