Brit in Phuket Town condo saga continues amid fears of nine-story jump

Recommended Posts

A mans home is his castle. Like many castles in the past they have laid siege to it. He needs to sort this out soon or he will lose more than his castle.

It's great to see the fire brigade looking very professional, all suited in uniform, and welcoming for any issues which might arise from this mentally unstable situation. 

The occupant is probably just waiting for monies to be properly transferred over, 

so he may clear the rent. It's just a misunderstanding, which the landlord wasn't willing to understand through proper body language translation, since English skills here are still very low line in most parts, as not being any sort of priority to consider when running a business. Hopefully it will all sort itself out in a most positive fashion prior to any sort of overstay, which might cause him to be banned from the country in the future.

They could turn nasty and turn the power and water off, I don't know how much food he has but overall I think he is being a blockhead.

Aren't there more important things to discuss other than this dweeb? His situation will work out as it will. Why not just turn on an episode of the Kardashian's and see the same type of crappy drama? Too much focus on losers these days.

how pathetic--all this over 8,000thb????  there must be more to this story ??

"sticking to principles'----at 50yrs old, surely there must be more to his life, than barricading himself for 8,000thb---grow up and move on--surely your happiness is worth more than 8,000thb....

we all know that renting condos from thai people is "risky"...

living in thailand has many risks---but dont get sooo upset about such minor problems...

there are too many good things here, to make the most of..we all only get one life...at 50yrs old, it is more than half gone...

Renting anything in Thailand has it's risk

Yep, bowling shoes, cars, apartments and women. Some can give you fungal infections, others just don't fit right and give you sore heels.

So, if you catch a tuk-tuk on Phuket, late at night, after having a few to drink, and agree on the price of 400 baht (which is a scam within itself) but anyway, at your destination the driver says, "600 baht" and you start arguing the point, until it escalates to threats of violence, with other tuk-tuks starting to arrive on the scene, so you pay the extra 200 baht - have you been scammed, or not????  

You do rave on, and on.

They're not giving receipts. Why? The focus is on the bloke when it would seem the owners are bent, suprise, suprise. Job for Big Joke. Investigate the owners and the reason they're not supplying receipts which is a legal requirement. Suerly giving receipts should solve this problem? Pity the TV grab from the Phuket Post fails to mention the non compliance of issuing receipts which is the crux of the matter. 😎

No. The crux of the matter is that this guy is a drama queen and everybody is sobbing for him, right on cue.

 

How has be been so outrageously wronged?

Exactly how is a bloody receipt so earthshaking to him?

"if he was starting to get bullied by the sons...that was the time to leave" - and go where? 

 

Can you name a place in Thailand where tourists are not scammed, in one form or another?

Can you name a country where tourists are not scammed in one form or another?

Let the living beware. 

Big yawn.....

Two things. He has a bolt. And, if you are on the premises, they cannot enter without permission. It is a peculiarity of Thai law that I happen to support. At least it was leading up to the coup. I'm pretty sure it still stands.

In all USA leases the landlord is only able to enter the premises upon written notice and only for proscribed reasons. It's a privacy thing.

 

However the government and other and sundry authorities are free to sort your garbage, sewerage, and collect any and all information on you in every possible manner, enter and ransack your house, seize your possessions, shoot your dog, all without permission from you.

 

It's a peculiarity of America law. I'm pretty sure it will get worse too. 😕

How is it you know the FULL story????

 

What would your post be if he were to jump out of the window killing himself?

 

I suppose you would say that is the action of a "drama queen."
