Could anyone offer any advice on the following charges from the constructor to the client? Are they excessive?



2000 for connection of electricity & phone from house to nearest post



2000 for electric meter and connection



2600 for planning permission ( the property has been completed)



800 water connection and meter ( Alsancak)



Thanks

Seems rather expensive to me. I was charged 2000 towards electricity connection for my apartment in new block. I was expected to have known about this even though not in contract, according to my friendly 'can't do enough for you' estate agent.

Hi Pogle

Water meter connection to main water line in 2009, main line already there 1000ytl - in Alsancak



We had to pay 1000 towards 'electric transformer' - it was already installed the year before. No 1000 no builders signature, no need for that either 'cos neighbour did not pay that sum, we were never informed of this levy!



To have a electric meter fitted to existing cables - 391ytl



Nothing for planning permission - new one to me



My friend in the next site was asked for 2,500 for complete electric connection from

'new' transformer to meter (Kibtec put up new poles etc) and builder connects from meter to house - free! there are spaces for 10 properties on the site - 4 built

Morning Pogle,



Is this your own place,or a friends ? Maybe naming the developer would help you gain some more feedback about your questions ,from peoples past experiences.



The planning permission one is new to me.. i thought this was supposed to be granted before the construction started....... but there again the "rules" may have altered.

hello pogle, is this one proerty or a few...perhaps negotiate if a few involved....the costs vary across the sites and construction companies..im told kibtek set a charge for transformers which some builders divide by the number of props on site...and maybe even add a bit on... These charges are not standard exceptiing connection charges...which im told are a deposit in case electric bill is not paid!!!!...or maybe its all change again....planning permission ...sounds like no permit...costs are attached to building permit...

Planning permission should be obtained before construction commences. You need to check the contract you signed.

Thanks everyone, thankfully this is not my place.

I guessed the charges were excessive, I have suggested this chap gets some legal advice on the matter, preferably from a Lawyer who has no connection to his constructor. As for the planning permission, we have recently investigated the process and this is certainly something that needs to be paid for at commencement of the project and not 3 years after the property has been completed.





Thanks again

Mel
