2 months after deposit, owner still hasn't removed stuff

Recommended Posts

I put a 15% deposit down on an old condo 2 months ago. I agreed to give the owner a few weeks to remove all the old stuff from the condo, there's lots of it. 

 

It's been over 8 weeks now, and half of it is still in the condo, the other half is just in the hallway. Excuse given, can't find a worker :0 

 

Is this common here? How hard can it be to find some day laborers to pile a load of stuff into a moving van or skip.

 

The sale is supposed to go through this month, with the stipulation that the condo will be cleared in the contract.

 The condo belongs to him.

I assume that you have no key access.

Wait until completion day.

No 85% until the condo is cleared.

Clearly he wishes to leave all his stuff with you.

Generally  I think that he is within his rights( not to clear before completion day).

You do not have any -until the condo is legally yours.

That is about 8 days away

What do the condo management say about the stuff in the hallway?

Alternative -you get a price for the job.

Reduce the balance by that amount if he does not play ball.

I hope that your contract is sound!

Check the hallway for shoes parked outside the doors, if "yes" - get out, it´s a bad managed place.. but oh s... I just noticed you bought it? Good luck...

In my condo some renters had shoe rack in the hallway and it was gone within two days after a report. What is this stupid idea of owning the hallway?

He is waiting for you to dispose of his junk and then force you to pay him for what he says it is worth. Don't forget where you are🤣

Dont worry, i was still moving stuff out of mine three hours before going to the land office. What's left in there after transfer do what you want with it if he refuses to take it.

Could you just highlight it, or copy and paste into a reply. Thanks

Abnormal farang behavior...not uncommon Thai behavior...Thai apologist...

In most contracts there is a clause stipulating the penalties to be paid by the purchaser if he does not fulfill the terms of the contract (time for balance to be paid, etc.,).

  There should also be a clause stating the financial penalties to be paid by the Vendor if the contract is not fulfilled on his end.

You have the right to inspect the condo on the morning of the day of transfer to make sure everything is ok. If he hasn't removed his stuff, don't do the transfer. Do not believe him if he says he will do it after the transfer. Once he has his money, that is the last you will see of him.
