Why so difficult to get Thai landlords to realise that they don't own your deposit?

Recommended Posts

Eye for an eye .......... I lost my entire deposit on the very first rental I had 35 years ago and the amount of THB 45'000 - those days a fortune - was still too small to take the landlady to the cleaners. 

As of then I always stopped paying rent timely enough so when I moved out the deposit was balanced. To the big surprise of all landladies and landlords I had later on, I showed up six weeks later to clear all the still open bills and explained, why I did it that way round. Question is always and worldwide the same "who wants what from whom" and, likewise, a property owner has no legal substance if you're not in arrear for at least three months ......
