Woman bought house for 25 million - but it's so bad she can't even live there!

It is often said that you get what you pay for - but that would fall on deaf ears when it comes to the experience of a Thai woman who bought a very expensive house in a development in Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok. 

 

"Kimchi Kim" paid 25 million baht for a three story luxury home at The Gentry on Soi 101 - a development built by SC Asset.

 

But since the purchase in June she has not even been able to move in. 

 

There are leaks everywhere and mold all over the wallpaper.

 

And cracks have appeared throughout the property, reported Sanook.  

 

She said that she is now locked into a 30 year mortgage with no end in sight to the problems. 

 

She posted that she had checked and double checked the house and believed the site engineers when they said that initial problems with the damp were caused by nearby vegetation. 

 

She trusted the good name of the company to deliver.

 

Now she said that she only has 7 months more of insurance before she will have to start paying for repairs herself. 

 

"It's the worst decision of my life," she lamented.

Have a mate who paid nearly 20 million for his house. It's in a great location and it certainly looks very nice. But look deeper and it's just a cheaply built house with a nice exterior and over-sized rooms which waste space. And he has mold, too.

 

If you have the money to buy an expensive house, you should have the money to have it checked before.

She paid for the land not the house. If she can afford 25 million for it, that's not going burn a hole in her pocket.

We had a gang of 4 one day, one asleep at the back presumed hang over, one pissed off to watch muay thai on the tv, one doing a bit of sweeping up and another one who the wife questioned. Are you drunk she asked him, his reply was of course I am, how can work if not drunk!
