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.

UK Passport Office.
As all of us are aware, the UK Passport office is not coping with applications. They have had mine for 10 weeks, payment taken immediately on receipt, online progress stating 'in process of examination' on 26th May. 11 days later informed me that I had not sent my old passport so unable to proceed. In other words they have lost it. My residence visa was due for renewal 8thJune, as this is happening to many people who are having to send documents with complete strangers travelling back to UK to speed up process surely an official notice to Turkish government to apologise and explain that it is not our fault that we are left with no identification for so long would be in order. Turkish authorities have improved their systems over the years where we seem to be going backwards. Thank you.

If you are over 70 years and the new residentiaal application is for 1 year only who will do health insurance as so far none of the insurance companies will do it and it is now part of the forms needed to renew sdk wont because both me and husband are on uk pensions so when will this be sorted out as myhusband had toget a visa to return to turkey which only lasts until july if health cannot be done then like loads of other xpats we will have to sell up and return to uk why does the british consulate not come to an agreement to pay health for uk pension holder like most of the other eu countries us expats would not have these problem

Money - Non Repayment of Loan
Hi I am a UK citizen who had a Turkish partner, I unfortunately loaned him some money, initially to support a new real estate business, but further monies for a number of reasons, (to summarise - previous debt, medical costs, cost of living). I had thought that I was loaning him money until the business started to earn, as we hoped that the business would become sustainable and support us and our family (we both have children from previous relations), however, he has recently stated I gave him money and will not now repay. Is there any advice on how to make him repay? I have the receipts for most of the monetary transactions and some written communications (not full). Any advice appreciated.
