We live on a sitesi in Akbük. Can you tell us if English people can be voted on the management team? And have a say as to how the sitesi is run.
We have a management team at present which is made up of 3 turkish men they make all decisions on how the site is run and how the site fees are spent. We have 33 villas of which 11 are english and we would like an english person on the management team.
We have been told by the current management that in Turkish law we can not have an English person on the Management.
The management are Turkish people who own villas on the site and are not payed.
Thank you very much for the information. We were told last year that an english person was not allowed by Turkish Law to be on our sitesi yonetim. He (one of the present yonetim) told us this in English.
İ am a permanent resident of Turkey and our Sitesi and one third of the properties on the sitesi are owned by English people. This year İ will try again and will use your information as proof if you dont mind
çok teşekkur ederim
Just ask the management committee according to which law regulation the foreigners are excluded of joining the meetings and votings and let me know the result.
we are allowed to join the meeting but they say are not allowed to be one of the management team to make decisions etc. We live their so feel it is in our interest to be actively involved. Most of the previous managemnt dont even live in Turkey. they are turkish but live in switzerland or germany
On the same subject if a person has a proberty on the site and has not payed any site fees for the passed 12 months has he/she the right to a vote at the general meeting?
And i would like to say a big thank you to you all for your input.
Why don't you all hire yourselves a lawyer to take along to your Annual General Meeting - they could translate for you and offer advice. Perhaps when your Turkish neighbours see you are legally represented then they will need to ensure that the whole proceedings are legal and above board
Also, any decisions regarding how the site is run or how money is spent should be voted upon by all owners at the AGM and recorded in your site decision book
