CIN, NEDIM YALCIN and RAMAZAN YALCIN from Offices in Altinkum.

We agreed to represent them in the UK as Agents, contacting prospective Clients with a view to selling Properties Built by GAP Group(First Choice Turkish Homes). They agreed to pay us a commission on any Properties sold to the Clients.

The relationship was good at this stage.

Sami Yalcin came to the UK to obtain a Visa (he informed us.) He was lonely in his Hotel so we invited him to stay with us. He accepted and was with us for about six weeks. He was not charged anything and was looked after very well.

We were accepted as part of the Family and attended Sami Yalcins Wedding.

It is alleged that Sami Yalcin and Nedim Yalcin were declared Bankrupt at some stage. Subsequently, Ramazan Yalcin took over the running of the Company . We gave him instructions to sell two Properties we owned on Gold Sand Complex.

After much apparent stalling and telling us that he had a buyer i.e. waiting for Military clearance(failed)," Nedim Yalcin
has a Turkish buyer from Istanbul" etc., We were advised to contact a Solicitor in Didim who got information from the Tapu Office and much to our horror, it was found that the Apartments had been sold without our knowledge! The following is a copy of the email from the Solicitor.

We investigated your apartment buyers in the title deed Office. Apartment D-2 number 4 sold to Süleyman GÖKER who is Turkish in January 2015, apartment A-3 unit number 8 sold to Natalie SOFTA in July 2014.

We remortgaged our property in the UK to invest in the Apartments on Gold Sand Complex with the intention of selling them to fund our retirement. I am 78 years old this year.

We have had no response from the Yalcins.

We trusted the Yalcins and have been treated in an abominable way.

We have always found the Turkish people to be friendly and courteous. It must be acknowledged that treatment to foreigners of this sort can only damage the reputation of honest and friendly Turkish people.

I am displaced Syrians in Izmir , I am 25 years old married and I do not have kids ...
I was studying at the University of Aleppo Faculty of Economics fourth year , my wife was studying at the same university in the College of Engineering Technology Food Technology Department .
After the Syrian crisis, we were forced to flee from Syria and displacement to Izmir , and so we could not complete our study .
Therefore we want to seek asylum from your state esteemed to complete our study we do not know the necessary measures with the knowledge we do not have passports and we can not back and get new passports .
I hope the answer from the consulate esteemed ....

Apartment Purchased has Deed Block
We purchased apartment in Kusadasi 2003 and now we have tried to sell it after 11 years but local estate agent says he has learned from the Deeds office that there is a block on the Deed and says it cannot be sold until the block is lifted. The estate agent in Kusadasi says there is a builder who is owed money and the builder has put a block on the Deed until it is paid off. Our solicitor in Kusadasi back in 2003 did not inform us of this and we cannot understand how we could purchase the apartment in 2003 if a block existed on it. Please can you advise.

Divorcing a Turkish Citizen
Please can you advise me on how I should go about divorcing my Turkish husband. I am a UK citizen and we married in 2008. We came to your office for papers at the time.
He came to UK eventually on spouse visa but marriage ended badly and he was deported in March'13 before he got his permanent residency.
I have not heard from him for 18 months now so I would like a divorce.
He has the red marriage book but I have photocopies I'm sure.
I am just unsure of what I should do, is it possible that he has divorced me in Turkey without my knowledge? Please advise.
