In Tonpao, Sankamphaeng, in our muban now 6 years old, we had numerous times that when people move into their new houses, they almost all wanted to build extensions, carports, etc.  Many were outside the standard for at least this area - nothing within 50cm of the shared wall and any roof overhang could not drain rain water onto the adjoining property.  Many people ignore this as do the local construction companies.  Even if a wall is completed, and although you have complained with no results from your new neighbor, a letter or visit to the local Thesaban will (and did in many cases) result in a visit by an inspector from the thesaban who will take pictures of the offending structure and then seeing that it violates the standards, will send a letter informing the neighbor to come into compliance with the standards - in other words the structure has to be destroyed and rebuilt if desired to the standards.  But of course you will never be friends of that neighbor.  I saw several structures taken down in various stages of construction.  The muban officials themselves never offered any assistance.   We too complained as our neighbor was building a Thai kitchen (using gas) with a large window facing our house almost against the fence.  They got very upset that it had to be torn down and started over, then the local constructors did not slant their roof according to physics so that when the first heavy rains came, the roof collapsed; when they tore down the walls and moved it to standard on the other corner of their property, they broke a water main! of course all the bad luck was blamed on us.  Does that bother me - not in the least!

Yes they should have asked permission but keeping their property in good repair is in your interest especially keeping run off on their side. In the UK you have a right of entry to repair your property enshrined in London in the Party wall acts where each side appoints a surveyor to represent them. Nothing like that in Thailand thank goodness. Best to reach agreement with your neighbour as long as they make good any damage

Yep. You confirmed what I had stated already. And you are correct on everyone building something and most overstepping their boundary.

As Presnock stated, a visit to the Tesaban by the House Owner with a written complaints and some images will get them a visit.

 

The 50cm is also correct and any offending structure will be forced to be rectified. It is also unlikely they have planning permission.

 

Note that your neighbour will be informed of who made the complaint and do no be expected to be invited over for a BBQ.

I think this is the best answer so far and similar to my problem. I can relate to your problem because these are seriously very selfish people.

 

What is this Thesaban and how to locate this?

The neighbour is an arrogant lot who we have talked to many times in the past, so the relationship won't get any worse than the present.

go to Home Pro, they have spikes that you can affix along your wall. Alternatively, a can of glue and some broken bottles to put on the wall will stop that nonsense in its tracks.  They also sell razor wire.

So there is no possibility of any physical response?  How can you be sure of that?
