Electricity and Water Connection Charge
Hi

We have been asked by the developer to pay the electricity and water connection charge of £605. Is this the normal price? It seems a little high.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Hi Sunseekers we paid £200 back in 2006 so seems a little high but not sure on the increases. David

This builder as usual is taking advantage of the situation.Tell him,no way am l going to pay that and l'll be looking into it.What you can do is,get a written statement from him,in confessing to these over inflated charges where he signs for it,and then ask others on the complex to do the same,if he refuses,then l will not pay until this is signed.Play at his own game.Go to the Altinkum advice center also,,,similar to CAB,and see what they advise you on to do,at least you will have the proof,if he denies the charges.
l despise these people that take advantage of people's ignorance.lt's these type that give Turkey a bad press
Here is a link to another thread on the charges.

I'm with bobthenob.
My new stance is "don't pay" for any service or job except what you've agreed to (written down and signed)
And demand an invoice and definetly get a 'fiş' (receipt) because that has to be stamped and tax paid so i would imagine has to be genuine.

Hi

Thank you for the information and suggestions on our how to handle the situation.

Is there anybody out there who can confirm what they have paid for the electricity and water connection within the last 6 months within the Akbuk/Altinkum area. This way I can compare like for like. I am assuming that you would have paid this to the developer and not directly to Tedas because on new builds utilities cannot go into our name until there is Habitation License.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi Sunseekers

I know it was not in the last 6 months but the builder took me to both places where I paid directly to them and, it was a new build and I didnt have hab cert at the time nor Tapu. I got them both about 3 months later.

i went into tedas bodrum and found out you can now have the utilities in your own name despite having no hab cert .

Thats just what i thought...pigs are alive and well and flying regularly within Turkish borders..
---------------
Just as an aside, forgive me if i'm being stupid, but would Tedas supply 1 house
(on a koop-currently on builders electric) with mains electric or would they only supply the whole whole complex at the same time ?

I'm just thinking - if they do supply without Hab cert AND would do a '1-off' then I wouldn't need to wait for the whole koop to get Iskan? (apart from any transformer upgrade)

Hi mike dj, can you explain what you mean ??

Do i understand right that you now have a SEPARATE metered supply to your garden that cost you 30+45+145ytl = 220ytl??

But WHY is it cheap rate? Water is water right??!

Cheap rate for garden use only ,if you have a large garden with lots of grass area or pool no cheap water ,only for small gardens or gardens with gravel or paved area . We live in a block of 8 aparts small garden with gravel and shrubs etc in pots or directly in soil . I read about it on other forum in Altinkum so gave it a go , all sorted yesterday new tag for outside tap and on garden water charge .
Take care Mike .
