What is Aydat?

In Mersin, foreigners encounter the term "aydat" for the first time.

It is a monthly payment from each owner for the maintenance of your apartment complex or house. It should be explained what the aydat is paid for, how are these payments spent and how is it done in Turkey?

The fees go towards maintaining the pool and taking care of the grounds.

The amount of payment directly depends on the size of the residential complex and the presence of a swimming pool (aquapark, hammam, gym, bowling alley, cinema in new houses). The price varies from zero (in the old sector), to 100 euros per month. The average price ranges from 300 to 500 liras per month.
