Probably why in Maerim, landlords actively search for farang tenants and avoid Thais like the clap.

I know many Thai people who will not rent to Thai's they know they can charge Farang more to start with,

A Thai guy I know who rents bikes and cars, No Thai's

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?

never send your gf when its time to get the deposit back,

insist that its paid back when you are face to face, and with the owner, not any kind of secretary.

dont accept any other trickery,

and for practical purposes, use real shoes when you go to claim back deposit,

preferably those with steel reinforced toe

More Negative "False Flag" media, to push the "Bad Falang/Expat" agenda narrative.

 

Seems to be a lot of this popping up lately, all to show the bad side of foreigners.

 

THIS IS JUST MY SPECULATION:

Also could be this story fails to mention that the Landlord refused to file the TM30's,

which the Renter refused to pay fines for, thus being forced out of Thailand.

Nice segue into TM30s. Unfortunately the tenant was Thai.

Just one more reason not to have rental properties in Thailand. I've seen/heard many stories like this. Passive income is good, but not this type in Thailand.

Tenants are so nice in Thailand......!

 

nothing to do with being thai or in thailand; back home a friend of mine rented her apartment, the tenants not only trashed the place but also stole almost everything movable in the place. - they weren't thai!

Because she kept the deposit ....... which is why he left it like that.

Back in 1997 when I was renting my landlady kept the deposit and we left the place cleaner and tidier than when we started. That was due to my military training when I marched out and in to married quarters.

I've never gotten a deposit back when renting in Thailand.

I've always gotten my deposit back when renting in Thailand( Hua Hin, Pattaya, Koh Samui, Surin, Chiang Mai).

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.

That is how some people live

Not really sure how it works in LoS, but would not the tenant have already moved out before they assess whether the deposit is to be returned?

yes, they like to make them self inaccessible.

i have found the best counter is to keep the key until you meet the owner for return of deposit

It does happen that some landlords do not return the deposit but not all the time, I've had two deposits returned in the past ten years and have never lost a single one. The way around this issue is to specify the circumstances under which the deposit may not be returned or deductions made from it. Another alternative is to have a third party such as an agent hold the deposit. At a minimum, ensure you take high definition pictures of everything in every room, the whole nine yards, it is often useful evidence later.

the person who rented her property in Phrapradaeng was not human.

He was one of those aliens we read so much about.  From Lower Slobovia!
