Why do we need to add -dur?

I thought dIr was used for things which are immutably true, but Mr Orhan might move house!

Where does the M come from? komsuyuz?

You're mixing up the possessive and the verb suffixes. -(i)miz is possessive and -(y)iz is for "to be".

Komşu-muz = our neighbour

Komşu-yuz = we are a neighbour(?)

'Komşuyuz.' would be 'We are neigbours.'
