Hi Molly I think you will find that this is mostly the case, we bought new 2 years ago and had to install solar panels, water storage tanks etc, it seems bizarre doesn't it that you buy a new house but have no means to even flush the loo!!!
I would never but new again, by the time you have sorted your water system out and maybe put in mossie nets and security metal work you can add another 5,000 TL to the asking price at least!
I would have thought that if your buying new you should expect a hot water system to be included in the price, we had a water boiler and solar included in our price and did not have to ask for it.
Mind you who knows what some builders will try on.
Thanks guys for your replies. We didnt think to ask about a water heating system we just naturally assumed it would be included... wrong ... I can now hear my teacher from all those years ago...... 'One should never assume'. :smartass:
we have just recently taken over our villa and we had no form of heating for a good few days till we could get something sorted. we fought it but were told it was a dreaded 'extra' along with rails around the house and numerous other items that we were certain were on the original pics.
I'd like to say we live and learn, but they always seem to come up with something when you think you've covered everything. its cost us in the region of 5-6000TL on top. :drum:
