Hello,

 

So recently we contacted some guy to build a wall and put windows and a glass door, now the issue is that when it rains watter is comming inside the house (the door is build just after 3 steps) the guy said that I had to inform him before he build the door that water may come inside..

 

i have held 50% of the payment and today he came to my house and said if i not pay him right now he will (destroy) his work.

 

i called the police and we went both to the police station and filled a report i told them i am happy to pay if he fix the watter issue but he said he will not fix it as it was my fault.

 

the police said as well that they can't really do something and we shall go to the court.

 

now the question is, i am doing the right think to keep 50% or shall i just pay him and forget about the issue?

i can see the OP's point, who would install a door that leaks? Builder should act 'responsibly' (555) this is Thailand.

 

At present it's a civil law matter so police won't be interested. However, it becomes a criminal law matter if the builder gets violent and damages you or your property.

 Thai builders are like most builders anywhere they work to your instructions, in Thailand your the boss, your the higher status person, not the builders place to tell you things, especially not his place to say negative things to you. Sounds illogical but that's the way it is and it's not changing any time soon.

 

Even if he did think about it, he doesn't know what else you are planning to do (extra work / next phase of a project etc.) which might well mean the issue you have now would never occur.

 

Never a good move in Thailand or anywhere to get into disputes, revenge from the builders, his family or friends, revenge on your wife and kids. could all be around the corner.

 

Pay the money and move on and learn.

 

 

 

he will get 0.00 bath that is for sure until he did a 100% job!

 

let's face it how stupid can someone be to build a door that has at least 5 millimetres space between the floor ? so welcome cockroaches and more?
