I think that most landlords and agents do return the security deposit. Just make sure that you rent from someone with a decent reputation, and get receipts.

countless posts on TV suggest otherwise..The joys of renting

Rent from a farang. A Thai will never give the deposit back.

More racist nonsense.

My Thai landlord returned my deposit twice and has a highly regarded reputation for honesty.

 

Rent from a falang in Thailand? 🤣

Where do you find an honest sober one?

I would go to a hotel much less hassle.

For one month there should be no security deposit.

They may limit your room cleanings to once or twice a week and some make you pay the electric.

 

Sounds like someone hasn't actually looked before speaking.

 

I've looked, extensively. The hotels I saw offering monthly rates all required deposit.

I've stayed in several hotels in Bangkok on a monthly basis ... and never had to pay a deposit.

Correct in that your room may not be cleaned daily and most likely once a week, and obviously won't include any breakfast.  But every hotel is different so hence one has to speak directly with the manager and work out the best deal.

I never had a problem getting security deposited back from a condo.

I rented two houses, one landlady a complete bitch, gave the money back no problems, one landlady really nice, kept the money. Most expensive house I rented was 7k/month (3 bed, 2 bath, nice garden).

 

There's no predicting people, of it there is it's beyond my ability to detect.

My firm rule never live anywhere that wants more than 1 month security.

 

Where do you find so cheap houses ? I need one for week ends (but ok to pay 1 year ahead), can you PM me please ?

 

Thank you.

Drive around looking for signs on houses/gates, talk to people in Mom & Pop stores.
