Laws Protecting People Who Rent Property in Thailand
Under the laws residential property landlords are required to adhere to a set of terms and conditions that ensures rogue practices are eradicated and that tenants are not victims of unfair contracts. The laws help to remove many of the contentious scenarios or ‘grey areas’ which can often be disputed between a landlord and tenant. One of the most significant points is that landlords cannot ask for more than one month rent and one month security deposit up front. Additionally, a tenant has the right to terminate their contract at any time, providing they give 30 days written notice to the landlord.
