Renter leaves landlady with a trash filled condo - and a parting message!


Recommended Posts

The problem with deposits in Thailand, or in any country, is that you will only find out that they have no intention of returning your money after you have vacated. Also, there's nothing thuggish about leaving the place full of trash, in fact it's quite a harmless way to aggravate someone who has possibly been aggravating you (whilst taking your money) for many years. Sorry I just saw you were using thuggish to refer to smashing someone's face in not leaving the place in a tip. I retract my comment.

Yeah a mess.  But we don't get the whole story.  Maybe the landlord did not do things right, maybe did not provide the services or utilities or whatever was in the lease, maybe the landlord said was g

Was always the case for me. Rented 2 houses in Thailand (both Thai landlords). Filthy when I moved in. Did various repairs (at my expense) and left both places spotless. Both tried to renage on return

Wonder if that is the superior intellect talking, or if it´s just plain thug mentality? A thinking person would try to solve the problem a much smarter way.

I wasn't dealing with a Thai. Horses for courses. He was a fellow Brit. They only know one language. Are you new to TV? 555

The latest pics coming from condo trashers is why they charge 2 months rent as deposit. Who knows how much damage they made to furniture etc. Tenants are often portrayed as angels who all leave the condo cleaner than when they got it and all landlords are lying scum. That's clearly not always the case

Maybe, in this case, it is a combination of the two.......

So, that means that your capabilities are limited to one country and it´s citizens. :cheesy:

Don't you understand what "horses for courses" means?

 

My first landlord was Thai. I dealt with her in a completely different way. Same problem, same result, my deposit was returned in full.

so why didn't the landlord inspect the room before giving back any deposit ?

even if the landlord and the tenant didn't get on, it's no reason to leave a place like that.

what ever gave you the idea that the land lady gave back deposit ?

on contrary its standard practice in thailand to steal the deposit,

and i suspect the tenant wanted to even the scale a bit

fine …..  but please explain in simple terms why she refused to give the deposit back …. then one has more facts to make judgement on … not just this happens, that happens, bla bla bla.

Oh <deleted>. I'm new to all this and just recently started leasing a condo in Pattaya. Only for 6 months and already paid two months deposit. 

 

The landlord is Thai. Sounds like I should be prepared to lose it all for no reason? My GF who is also on the lease and is Thai paid the deposit on my behalf. Does that make any difference or are they indiscrimate with who they steal from?

Their theivery knows no boundaries. In both cases that I quoted my Thai GF/wife, initially tried to resolve the problem but got nowhere. Thais don't like confrontation and usually say, "Mai bpen rai" and shrug their shoulders. In steps the big bad farang who doesn't aknowledge "Thai face" and insists on his money back.

Mai bpen rai my backside. Bpen mak mak.

well according to some TV farang the landlord automatically steals it from you. …  lol 

funny, I was in the same condo for 10+ years and the landlord didn't even steal my milk money, got my full deposit back without hesitation.
