Are we being ripped off .... again? I have lived on the Hz Omer development (Aga) for 5 years. No planning/building permission/ no water connection/ no electricity connection. the first three have at considerable expense (approx 3800 each) been rectified with the help of Catalkoy Belediyesi.



I have just been told that we must EACH pay (15 properties) for elec connection:

Meter: 250-300 (YES, stg not lira)

Actual connection - 500 - 600

Holding deposit - 200

The Road/elec and water infrastructure/junction boxes etc are already in place and paid for by us - again last year(5000 each) (It was also paid 5 years ago in the original price of the properties)



We have also to pay 8000 to "Just Ltd" for something??? ( thats approx 535 per house) I am distraught with worry about where all this money will come from, having already run up a 2000 overdraft on my UK bank A/c.



Any words of advice from anyone? Thanks. ossiejj age 67

Sorry Dee, didn't catch the humour part, maybe the smilie would have helped, I take back the silly accusation.



Ossie, I an guessing by the fact that you have added your age you are pointing out that there are not many options available for you, I would try talking to a financial advisor or something, you might be lucky enough to get sound advice from someone on the forum but my impression is that those who have similar situations to yourself are the ones in dire straights at the moment.

I wish you good luck though I can not be of help

Hi, No sadly, going back to UK is not an option. I cannot sell this house without elec, final approval, full Kocan etc. There is no money left and I am living on State pension and small private pension. I just scraped through residency renewal in September with a small amount of money in my local bank. I did work out the figures before I embarked on this 7 years ago,(a dream since 1972!) and had sufficient funds to meet emergencies (medical etc) Like so many others 6 years ago, I trusted Estate Agents, Lawyers. A loan is out of the question. I do have set aside 300tl for my meter and 300 for Final Approval.



The figures for electricity connection came from Kibtec via the architect who has been overseeing permissions for us.



I have to say that I know that there are many people in worse situations than me. It is just that when I thought we were almost home and dry, along comes another bombshell. I'm just off to the chemist for a supply of Prozac!

Ossiejj, I am so sorry that you are in such a predicament. We have a small apartment that we rent out and we had to pay 250 for the elec meter and 600 for the water meter. I couldn't believe the prices but, unlike you, we didn't have to pay a holding fee or a connection fee. This was a year ago.



You must be feeling quite desperate, I must admit that it's amazing how quickly money goes out here. You are in a bind but there has to be a way out, surely. Come on, everyone - any good suggestions where Ossiejj could get proper advice?

I'm sorry to hear of your predicament, do you have any immediate or close relatives (children, brothers or sisters) back in the UK, you could borrow the funds from and arrange to pay them back via a will using equity in the property.



If you had children working in the UK, it would be a lot easier for them to raise the funds if they could see they were going to inherit the property in the fullness of time (sorry to be blunt).
