We are looking for a relative who went to live in Turkey over 10 years ago, She is now in her late 60's. We have reason to believe that she may be homeless, and wondered if there are any charities in Istanbul that look out for homeless people that may have seen her and who we might contact, I know it's a long shot, but any information would be greatly appreciated. We have contacted the police but so far there are no leads.
Just bought a flat in Istanbul and tried to register the utilities in my name.After hours of queues I was told that I need to apply to the emniyet for some kind of residency which takes around 3 months.I do not want to be a resident as the flat is an investment. No plans to live here or in Turkey.Does anyone know if by doing this, there are any implcations ie tax or otherwise. Or is this a straightfoward thing to do
