New laws provide greater protection for people who rent property in Thailand

Recommended Posts

Not very thoughtful.
Yet another one "brilliant idea" that completely misses the point...

foolishness; must be a lot of these law-makers that own 4 properties

Seems silly.I Agree. I'd like to Confirm that regulation.  May be a mistranslation from Thai. Hope to view original regulation in Thai one sunny day.

Any mention of obligation to Notify at immigration for people renting ?

Many people say that their owners won’t comply . I would have thought this point very important.

It seems the regulations not always enforced to the exact description. I've taken this approach.  I'm a foreigner. I go to report TM30 for anytime away from my apartment more than 24 hours. No exceptions.  Can't lose that way.  Except for your wasted time.

Hmmm............for the last 7 years I have paid my rent annually in advance in return for a 12.5% rate cut, and as the lease has been renewed each year there have been no rent increases in that time. Changing my lease to monthly could also see rent rise to the current monthly price, which has increased by 25% over those 7 years.

I have an excellent relationship with my landlord, hoping he ignores the new legislation.

Some of it is good, some of it is impractical and stupid. There are incredibly poor tenants as well as poor landlords, so landlords need protection as well.

Poor landlord?

You have to take care and do maintenance of the property.

And for that you collect rent and a part is for the maintenance.

There is no poor landlord. Only people who not take care.

 

And this new law address some of the problems.
