Hello Seyfihoca

Yes, it looks a good way of asking questions to me. You can also say which one you think it is, and why, if you want.

To the question:

a) is a little loose, but not grammatically wrong (you could say, for instance, 'Being well situated in the town centre...'); but 'being renovated' suggests that the process of renovation is incomplete. This makes it unlikely that the apartment would be rented out to anyone.

b) is possible: 'having been renovated' means that the process of renovation is complete. In this instance, a rich foreigner could well be renting the apartment.

c) is also possible, as a reduced version of B; but it sounds very brusque. You would be more likely to hear e.g. 'Completely renovated, refurbished and refurnished, the apartment is now being rented out to a rich foreigner'.

Meeting here is not surprising hocam; I was looking for the same subject. Emotion: smile

Being renovated, the apartment is now being rented to a rich foreigner.The action referring to renovation is going on, so if it is not in İstanbul Emotion: smile, it musn't have been rented.


Having been renovated, the apartment is now being rented to a rich foreigner. Renovation was finished and at a different time sequence(now) it is being rented.


Renovated, the apartment is now being rented to a rich foreigner. The structure seems to be a reduction of "having been renovated", this sort of reduction is generally applied when there are two sentences to be combined without using a sentence connector or an adverb.

"Having been renovated, the apartment is now being rented to a rich foreigner" suits there much better than those given above.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
"Having been renovated" is the correct answer. as it is a way of rewriting "after the apartment has been renovated..."
"being renovated" does not mean the renovation is in progress.
It is progressive in form, is the participle that modifies the subject: apartment, but not in meaning.
having been renovated, being renovated and renovated are fine, if you ask me.

the apartment is decorated -- participle transformation: being decorated
the apartment has been decorated -- having been decorated

which is progressive in form?
Inchoateknowledge"being renovated" does not mean the renovation is in progress.
I agree with all of MrP's comments in the above. I had the same readings for those, before seeing his comments.
