You can't just get your money back even though it's as bad as it is. Even though it's not your fault, the head guy is not going to give you your 500k back just like that. Morally he should but this is Thailand ....

You already had a new ' lower interest rate ' agreement with the head guy, you had everything in place and could have accepted his request and moved into your new home, he would in turn sue the previous manager and hopefully recover the 500k deposit, that's the 64 million dollar question, will he get your 500k deposit back after a court order or what if the previous manager had already spent the money, if that did happen it would be a long and drawn out process as the court would execute an officer to freeze and recover any assets, then auction them and pay any monies owing back. 

However, you would still be in your new home and paying it off as normal ...

This is a complex situation and as such you MUST engage a lawyer to handle this for you.

If it means suing him then the lawyer will act accordingly.

 

 

yes i know that was good deal but as you said this is thailand so how can i be sure that he will sue her and get the money back as promise maybe after i sign the new agreement and he fail to get money back from her thats mean i'm stuck and i have to pay half million THB again

Well that's where your lawyer can work for you on this one, as it stands ... your out of pocket 500k and no house ... why not have your lawyer request a change of clause in the contract that works in your favor.

Have him request a clause that states ' the original deposit of 500k has been paid as required by the purchaser to the said company .... and that you cannot be held responsible for any deposit owing due to the company loss or theft of the said deposit, as such noted that your deposit still stands and had been fully paid....   bla ... bla ... bla ...    at least that way if he can get the contact changed, you live in a house which you are paying for and you don't loose 500k.

And never ever pay such a large amount in cash in Thailand - Never !!

2Mbht house,

I paid 10k on signing the contract, and 10k/month while it was being built (5 payments)

The rest was paid at the land office (mostly by the bank), when they handed me the keys, and I moved in that day.

you made a mistake when you paid cash.

maybe they even planned the whole thing when they asked you

for cash payments.

i was also a victim for a crook, who asked me to pay cash for a flight ticket.

i trusted her because the wall on her office was covered with passport

photos of farang, i assumed they were happy customers.

so i paid cash for the ticket. she told me to come back after 3 days,

and when i came back the whole office disapeared !!

SHE CLOSED THE SHOP BECAUSE I PAID CASH !!

sounds crazy but later when i thougth about it, she gained, because her

business was bad and the cash payment could make her live 3-4 months.

anyway i did not budder to go to the police because i knew the police

will tell me that i don't  have anough evidence. only a piece of paper saying

that the ticket cost xxx amount...had i paid by bank transfer the polce

could get her...

Do you have a receipt for your money u paid in cash at the office?

Then they have to add it.

Whole stole all your full-stops?

 

And paragraphs and turned off your spell checker !

 

Go see a lawyer, but good luck finding a trustworthy and competent one.

 

If the money has been stolen, someone should be going to the police too.
