Farangs in Thailand: "They break the rules but the authorities protect them"

Recommended Posts

My experience from renting condos in TH tought me that there is
 
0 % chance getting back your deposit
70 % chance that the landlord cheat with electricity
 
Bad bad farrang.....

Complete nonsense I have rented two houses and a condo from Thai landlords and always got a receipt for my deposit and the deposit was always refunded in full, minus a cleaning charge which was a token amount and was clearly stated in the contract which I agreed to,
I always paid the rent by internet banking transfer so there was always a record of the payments I made , not that there was ever a dispute about non payment
On occasion there were problems with air con plumbing and other things and these were all sorted out by the landlords at no cost to me
In all cases my landlords at the time submitted the TM30 as required by law and I received the receipt stamped by the local immigration office confirming that he had actually submitted said TM 30
Perhaps you have been dealing with the wrong type of landlord

Owes 8,000 THB, rent must be very cheap in that Phuket condo,

the guy is reported to have said that he paid the rent cash and

the owner would not give him receipt ,so it's who you believe.

regards worgeordie

It's about average around Phuket Town because the over supply they are everywhere, but Im thinking there is more to this why he wants a receipt because he has to do his TM-30 and would need to prove where he lives so she is shitting herself because she has never declared anything as most Thai's I know

"We are Thais and this is our country but we can't take any action. If it was someone from Burma they wouldn't be given this protection."

 

Sums this racist chick up perfectly, these two lines.

Hope the bloke wrecks the gaff now.

No. Sums up the dirty money,  money, money.  Rot with money Royalty with the poor. SHAMELESS.

Daughter is fibbing me thinks.

 

As a foreigner, it is impossible to sign up for the internet unless you sign a 12 MONTH contract and pay for the entire year up front.

 

Only way around this is to use a Thai proxy on the contract.  I don't think the daughter or the mother acted as the proxy because if they did they just would have cancelled the contact.  But that did not happen because the guy has internet and has used it to communicate with the British embassy.

 

Would luuuv to hear David's side of the story.

 

Please post hear Mr Maclean if possible.

Never lost a deposit in 18 years, god knows how many homes.. 

 

hardest 2 to get were both farangs..

 

Mixed bag for me over the years. Had one wealthy lady (head mistress at private school) rent me the house next door to hers.  I stayed for several years and ended up quiet close with her family. Would pick her son up from school and piano lessons sometimes when her and her husband had to go to Bangkok. Helped them sell 2 of their cars (and one motorbike) to farang buyers, posted ads for their other rental properties on farang websites to help them find tenants, etc ... etc.

 

When I finally left I hired professional cleaners and gardeners to tidy the place up better than when I first moved in.

 

She tried to keep my deposit, and when I asked why, no response. I had a lawyer call her and threaten litigation and she finally paid me.

 

Not sure what the problem was.  Maybe just in too much debt and quite simply didn't have the money to pay me.

They are even protected.

I wasn't protected when my thieving THAI landlord stole my security deposit from me when I left my last rental!

You must be a really shitty tenant then 😄 And also don't know how to form a lease both parties are happy with (ie. electricity on government rate, liabilities for usual living excluded etc)

My long term rents have always followed the course of: 
House checked mutually

Something apparently broken by my household= deducted from the deposit
Something irrelevant to my living there = handled by the landlord before renting the place to next person

This does not ring true. BRITISH Embassy sent a representative ?

 

Now I just don't believe her - there is no way anyone from the British Embassy would do that.

Agreed, highly unlikely !

One Landlord / Tenant dispute, and it's grown into a nationwide story of outrage ! I was sympathetic to their plight. Not anymore.

Only in Thailand would everyone vilify all foreigners based upon some stupid minor disagreement between one thai and one foreigner.

Thailand - Most racist country ever. Eva.

Exactly, and 98% of these people have the same thought process! It is indeed a highly racist country.
