Hi Mark and Wendy,
I have contacted utku about this as i believe that without this we will be liable to the 1000 lira fine set by the goverment. Utku said that mr ufuk would not be getting the habitation certificate until 30th november 2009. I have asked him to take this up with him to see if he can get it earlier. I believe that it cannot be given until all work has been completed on the site and then the builder is liable for Tax on the site.
Regards Andrew and Carolyn.
its up to the builder to get your hab cert sorted for you . you dont get a fine because you dont have it . you only get the fine after you have got it .and i think you have 1 year from the granting of the hab cert to change tapu to mulkiyeti before a fine . but someone has said on here that if you get it before oct 09 yoy must change tapu before that date .obviously if the hab cet is granted after oct 09 then you have a year to get tapu changed .
you do not have to worry. please read the article below taken from ZAMAN newspaper.
'' Secretary of State and The First Secretary to Prime Minister Mr. Cemil Cicek announced today that, in yesterdays Cabinet meeting, it was decided that new measurements should be taken to ease the process regarding the Ownership status on TAPU's ( referring to KAT IRTIFAKI & KAT MULKIYETI ) to eliminate complaints and also Tax losses.
Mr. Cicek commented that Ministers discussed the new changes to Condominium Ownership Laws.
He added , he was aware of the difficulties public are having regarding the changing over from Kat Irtifakı ( Right of Easement ) to Kat Mülkiyeti ( Ownership ) and Minister for Justice and Minister for Public Works and Settlement are working together on this issue.
Both Ministers will be completing their studies whithin 5 to 10 days and we want to pass the new laws soon to prevent confusion.''
to get a copy of the hab cert you go to your local belediye [council] as far as i know you have to have a new tapu issued with the x in mulkiyeti box and that will come from the local tapu office . to be honest its not as simple as just walking in tapu office and if the builder can get it for you i would let him do it so long as he keeps his word .
