Landlady refusing to give 130,000 baht deposit back after moving out-what can I do?

As I have written previously, you need to forget about any deposit that you pay.  Divide that deposit amount by the number of months that you are in the rented property and look upon that as the actual realistic rent. If you get some thing back then good, but often you will not. From what I can tell, anecdotally,  farang owners will normally be quite straight with you,  but far too many Thai owners are no more than thieves, as they know that you have no real recourse in law. Forget it and move on. 

 

You may well have written previously that you need to forget about any deposit, and that may well have been your personal experience, but I certainly isn't mine.

 

I've rented three condos in Bangkok and a house in Hua Hin, three from Thais and one from a European, in each case our deposits were returned promptly when we moved and without question, on the last occasion the Thai owner instigated a bank transfer on the spot.

 

I note that you're only citing anecdotal evidence, so no first hand knowledge then, just rumours?

For 9 years here, it was only once, when the landlord tried to keep the deposit (75k), fixed by one call to my friend in the police. Got my money 15 minutes after.    You should go to police

If you gave her a 130,000 baht deposit........than means you either paying 130k baht a month or 65k/month...........Jesus!!! Why so much? Where are you staying, the royal palace?   For Thail
