What happens a lot?  

Damage to next door properties from building developments..(no zoning..laundry's next door)

and the point of the  magazine scan was to show the attitude of some in Thailand toward "farang" making waves.

The magazine scan talked about foreigners starting a court case, not about damage to adjacent buildings. It said nothing about what the court case was over and I have no idea about that story from 2008. It's their legal right to hire lawyers and go to court, for whatever reason. Although that could be a waste of money, it's not indicative of bad behaviour.

The magazine scan didn't do that. Unless you can explain exactly why they went to court, it's irrelevant. I have no idea why they went to court. Perhaps you could elaborate.

The "damage" was to the value of their property and their sea view...not to mention years of building dust and noise..I'm not sure if the case is still ongoing !!  there was a long thread on here about it  but I think it was deleted for some reason.

Yes I agree,  but some others   think the "farangs" should just shut up and  like it or lump it ( ie  go home)

A reasonable expectation for ‘foreigners’ to obey the laws of the land or ......... off!

The ‘foreigners’ where/are trying to get  the laws of the land applied...they bough a condo with a nice sea view and thought the land in front was prohibited from any building over 14 meters tall being built, as there is a law about nothing tall within a 100 meters from the sea shore...low and behold now you can measure 100 meters out to sea from the sea shore  and use that as the starting point for that 100 meters measurement !

 

I believe the stalled Waterfront at Bali Hai  benefited from this new interpretation of 100 meters from MSL

Thanks for the clarification. I didn't know where you were going from the magazine snap alone.

 

I definitely don't agree with the "shut up or go home" mantra. As long as your feet are on Thai soil, you're governed by the same laws as Thai people and you have rights. These people who suggest they are troublemakers are people who have been lucky not to have had any problems, or in the case of the piece you posted from the magazine, a vested interest.

More of   the "farangs" should just shut up and  like it or lump it ( ie  go home)  attitude here.

Sanook reported that the residents have spent a lot of money on lawyers in fighting their case.

 

They have even been called "stupid" for buying houses in that area by the Arcadia management, they claimed.
