Nor, in recent memory, have I been asked for a 90-day report.

Correct, as this should be stapled inside your passport.

My 14th extension this year, have never submitted anything regarding lease. I'm pretty sure you're thinking of the TM30. Your property owner has to submit a TM30 and then the stub gets stapled near the back page of your passport. You may not be able to get an extension w/o the TM30 stub, I'm not sure how tough they are about that these days, but there's a 1600 baht fine if you haven't got it, so it's probably a good idea to clear that up. Don't know where the office is for that since Promenada, but guess it might be upstairs in the new building. You should go there and ask about it.

In over ten years I have never been asked for lease information at extension time. I do dimly recall that some officer came up with this idea a few years ago, but apparently that didn’t stick. You can always throw a photocopy in your stack of reserve documents just in case. While you are at it, you could add photocopies of the ID of the lessor and the tabian ban for the property. I do.

No wonder they are asking for “new” stuff sometimes. They see people coming in with stacks of documents and wonder what they are so they ask for things just to find out.

Got to do something to break the routine.

I was required to show lease contract 6 months ago at CM Immig. Heretofore i have never had a lease, not needed at my lodging, but mgnt did provide one and even asked if i wanted a 6 month or 1 year lease contract.

The lease is meaningless to the hotel owner, i live month to month.  But Immig must have its way, like a petulant child. 

So, you may be asked to provide some evidence of a housing lease at Immig.

I had my bank letter, acct statements, copies etc. All ducks lined up.

 

Walked into CM Imm about 13:15 and walked out less than 40 minutes later with one-year extension done.

 

I can't imagine what an agent could do except go across the street to get the copies. An agent could only slow down the process, add complexity and take money for doing it. CM imm improved beyond recognition!

Same day update for passbook? (not applicable, I guess, for a FD)

How was the parking at 1300?

Plenty of parking across the street. I used 6 months of foreign transfers - same day update didn't show on the statement but no problem.

So leniency was applied?

Leniency or common sense.  How could anyone be expected to be in compliance with an order nine months before the order took effect in March.  The I/O did remind me that next year he wanted to see twelve months.

You'll find that the marriage route is far more complex than retirement. Yeah, it looks like monthly deposits must be made directly into a Thai bank, so that can be very inconvenient, but I don't think it has to be direct from government pensions, just monthly from bank to bank is ok. Anyone, isn't that right? For sure if you can dig up 800,000 baht and put into a fixed account that's the simplest way.
