Another bad news came from the judiciary to homeowners.
The landlord will not be able to bring those who want to buy the house for rent or sale at the time he wants.
The court interpreted this as ‘interference with a person’s private life’.
TENANT COMPLAINED TO THE MEDIATOR
Abdullah Y., who lives in Mamak, complained to the mediator about his homeowner who brought a buyer to his house, which was put up for sale after 23:00 at night.
Attention was drawn to the legal and contractual obligations of tenants and landlords within the scope of the Condominium Law and the Law of Obligations.
The tenant is obliged to show the property for sale to the new buyer.
THE HOME OWNER WILL GIVE A WRITTEN OR VERBAL NOTIFICATION
According to the news in Sabah Newspaper, while the parties were reaching an agreement at the table, the hours of 14.00-16.00 were determined on Wednesdays and Saturdays for the homeowner to show his property for sale.
In order for the landlord to exercise this right, he must notify the tenant in writing or verbally within a reasonable period of time.
The reasonable time is 14.00-16.00 on Saturdays, and the Supreme Court interprets the landlord or real estate agent bringing a customer at the desired time as interference with a person’s private life.
Landlords have the right to bring those interested in their property with the tenant at specified time intervals.
IT CONSTITUTES A CRIME
The lessor must use his property right without violating the tenant’s housing immunity. Opening the door when the tenant is not at home or entering the house without meeting the legal conditions constitutes a crime according to the Turkish Penal Code.
In case of entering the house without consent, a prison sentence of 6 months to 2 years can be imposed upon complaint. In case of entering a house for threatening purposes or at night, a prison sentence of 1 to 3 years is imposed.
It is a crime for the landlord to cut off electricity, water and natural gas to evict the tenant. The Supreme Court of Appeals has ruled on granting non-pecuniary damages to the tenant and, if necessary, financial compensation on this issue.
