Can you help me with my PTP ? . I have a reference number 929/07 and I want to check the status, I have 2 problems



(1 ) I have changed lawyer s and have been told by my acting Lawyer that the Interior Ministry will not advise them even after sending them a signed letter.





( 2 ) Due to problems I have now settled out of court with my Developer and exchanged properties for a completed property , so my PTP is for the previous property .



I would appreciate any advise on how to progress this, I have tried calling the Ministry from the UK 0090 0392 6111143 and get unobtainable, maybe ELKO2 could help?

If the property has changed since you applied for PTP then I believe you must start the process again on the new property. I'm surprised your new advocate has not told you this.

The No I have for the Interior Ministry in Lefkosa is 0392 611 1127, it is much better to go there in person if you are in/coming to TRNC. As I understand it, you can get the PTP in your name on one property at a time only ( you can do another in eg. your childrens name ) Have you applied for PTP for the property you have now ? It is more important to get this one underway, the other may have been transferred into someone else's name by now?

Tel: 611 1100 - It is unlikely that your 2009 application has been granted; you must therefore amend your existing application.

You do have to start thelprocess all over again as ptp is not transferrable. Also you will probably have to pay the lawyer again!

You do not have to start the process again if permission is not yet granted.

Your new lawyer should have advised you that you need to make a fresh application. I'd sack the new lawyer! And get one who knows how things work out here.

As always, my answer is contact Marian at Home Buyers Pressure Group. Either go to Pia Bella on Tuesday between 12.00 and 15.00 or e-mail and she will give the definitive answer. http://www.hbpg-trnc.net



You do need to get a new application because each one refers to an individual property.



Also they will usually not see you at Lefkosa offices without prior appt.

If my PTP for the 1st property was granted , can I not just change the property as the CRB check would have been done ? .

'As I understand the situation' (Famous get-out clause )

1) It doesn't cost ANYTHING to apply for PTP, and you don't need a Solicitor / Advocate, it is a free service provided by TRNC.

2) PTP relates to both the BUYER and the PROPERTY - e.g. If you are a convicted criminal, or fail to meet the criteria in some other way, the PTP may be refused for that reason - OR, if the property is in an area which is considered sensitive as regards National Security, and therefore 'Not Suitable for Sale to a Foreigner' - (YOU! ), then PTP may be be refused on those grounds.

...OR for some reason that they refuse to tell you, and you never find out

So you need to put in an application for PTP for every individual property in which you might be interested.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO MAKE A NEW APPLICATION EACH TIME IF PERMISSION HAS NOT BEEN GRANTED!!



Most of the information remains the same - you just need to advise them of the change in property details. It is even possible to get an amendment if permission has been granted but you should check the circumstances with the Ministry of Interior.

Thanks Molly , this is what my lawyer said , the problem is the ministry will only advise the person that applied . in my case it was Terry Hamilton when working for Goktug Yildirim ( I'm running out of people to trust )

I do find this very odd because we also did not apply for our own PTP but i always found the staff most helpful when i used to call the number given in Msg3.

You do not need to make an appointment to go to the Interior Ministry, I have been in there several times and as long as you are polite to them they are very helpful. It does help if you can speak a little turkish, but if not there are a rew people there who will help you. (I think its on the second floor)



You can apply yourself and do all the legwork, you need to chase it up at various stages ie. the army , which you seem to have to do whether you pay a solicitor or not! It speeds things up if you get your own police check done in the uk, Good Luck .

You can go to the office yourself and check if it has been granted, you don't need an appointment. Alternatively you can phone giving your name and reference number and they will tell you.

You have to submit a new PTP application as it is a different property. You can do it yourself getting the relevant forms from the PTP office or through HBPG. The only difficult bit is that you need to write a letter in Turkish to support your application. If you take all the paperwork back to the office they will register it and give you a reference number again. They do speak basic English and will help you.

We did our own application.

I agree get your police checks done in the UK and take original copy with you, you'll also need your contract of sale etc but make copies of all other documents needed to submit with your application.
