Ok Im sure this has been done before but why is it like finding a needle in a haystack to find a Condo/apt in Bangkok with only 1 month deposit. It is the lawnow, with a few exceptions. There is no oversight on this. and these thai owner landlords just laugh in your face when you tell them about 1 month deposit law.. What a joke

This law only applies to landlords renting out more than 5 units.

It is only law if the have 5 or over properties for rent.

They are only trying to protect themselves,they probably

have had tenants leave their place a <deleted>hole,with unpaid

utility bills,and they would rather not give back 2 months

deposit,than one 🙄

Does it matter, you won't get the deposit back anyway.

An sort of escrow company would be nice. An unbias company that would keep the money and would be fair to both sides. Now both sides are afraid to get shafted as there are bad landlords and bad tenants. 

This is what agents are for, deposits should be held by the agent in a non interest bearing company account.

If your landlord, as many do, refuse to register you with immigration then 100% they are dodging tax on rental income and want to keep it quiet. If they refuse to give back your deposit then follow my way and you will get it all back minus legit expenses. Go to the Office of Consumer Protection at Chaeng Wattanha and explain the problem and ask if they will support your case, or just tell your landlord that they will support it. Then just throw in that there will be 'tax and immigration implications' in a letter to your landlord. It worked a treat for me. Got back 59000 from 66000 tout suite.
