Landlady says I owe her money for damage to condo in Phuket

Recommended Posts

Just tell her you've had enough and leaving Thailand.

 

 

Change your sim. Move to Bangkok and get a real job.

 

Cops will be lazy. She'll need money to push the issue.

 

What a con.  I hate Phuket do much in 30 years I've never been further than transiting thru the bus terminal.

Help ?!!!!!

You see, this is another reason that shows how you think. 

The fact is you caused damages more or less (your story is all we know about it). It shows that how you treat a rental property. Even if you rent a property in US you have to pay for damages. If  the owner takes you to court, you will be responsible for court fees as well since you are the one who caused damages. If you get lucky you just don’t pay for the time that landlord had to spend for dealing with repair.

Why don’t you fix them by yourself ?

I tell you why:

Because it takes time and headaches and you even have no idea where to start. 

Next time you rent a property take photos and email the landloard at the time you moving in. And feel more responsible for others property.

Tell her that first you are going to make a inquires at the revenue department to ensure she has been declaring the rental income recession fed from you. Might put the frighteners on her to back off...just a thought.

the joys or renting. What may seem like a small area to paint, if it's coloured a good thing can cost 1.200 baht,  so 1.800 labour isn't excessive if the painter uses there own brushes,  rollers,  cleaning equipment  plus travelling. 

it's difficult to purchase fridge parts so yes maybe a new fridge is required but you are entitled  to the old one. try and meet her halfway

You do realise that the guy who posted "seek help" isn't the same person as the one who rented the property don't you?

Money isn't really an issue, I would be more interested in fighting it and spending more in the long run if necessary.

Brilliant strategy.

Your not in Kansas anymore Toto.

Not all landlords or agents are scammers.  A friend of mine went back to the US after selling everything in his apartment.  Several weeks later, I ran into his landlady who asked me to stop at the office wherein she handed me his deposit back, minus a few small repairs that had to be made.

Good luck and post up if you get anything back. Yep, they always do this. My previous Condo owner owes me for the repair of the Air Con unit (5700) and a new matteress (6000). Both of which she suddenly became hard to find and unable to return my calls when I tried to get her to take care of it, replace etc.

 

She of course took all my damage deposit and what are you going to do? Hang out in Nakorn Nowwhere trying to hunt the owner down. BTW, left that condo in far better shape than I got it. Screened the porch balconey from the pigeons, put in reflective material on the upper windows etc etc. I did this she didn't. Never could find her when her paying money was involved. Bet she is happy she rented to me. ALways paid on time, her other tenants in her other condos did not. Always a lot of drama with them. 

 

This one, took about 65 picture when I moved in, but truth is, when I do move out, I doubt I will get a satang, TIT   :thumbsup:

Pretty normal landlord behaviour, I had this problem with the flats I rented in the UK. I must admit, they didn't go over and above the deposit amount though. I guess it was already spent, and, basically, they didn't have it to give back.
