Our new home in Phuket - eviction and relocation

So, in the first series of our romantic detective story, we were settled in wonderful pool house and green territory. But then we did not know that it was in vain that we contacted the insidious real estate agent Vincent, naively believing in his beautiful speeches. At that time, we still didn’t assume that one of the beautiful Phuket days we would have to leave our monastery, and if we didn’t stay outside, then at least change the house to a housing more modest.

Preamble

If you rent a house, then read my post with tips - Renting a house in Phuket and my booking instructions: How to book a house in Thailand - 5 ways. And housing for a short period (while looking for a house)can be booked through RoomGuru, this is one of the most convenient hotel search services (it searches all existing bookings in the databases at once). In addition, we have personally composed review of Phuket hotels.

A week ago, the cunning Vincent crossed the thresholdof our house, regrettably declared that, they say you should move out, the owner of the house is returning. Although the agreement was for two months, but only one passed. According to the “generosity” of his soul, he in return offered us a room in his guesthouse for the same money. Feeling a trick, we hurried to disagree, and demanded money back.

As a result, we have heard many speeches about ingratitude and the hard life of realtors in Thailand. As well as a theatrical performance with everting pockets and an empty wallet.

It turns out that initially we agreed not torenting a particular house, but on “housing options,” and once we refuse, then we insult its Italian ego. And we did not guess the lease agreement to conclude, his speeches were painfully sweet.

If you are traveling to Thailand for the first time, thenI recommend to book a house or apartment in advance. This is done only through a realtor. Yes, they are not engaged in the cheapest housing and take a commission, but this allows you to avoid unnecessary trouble in an unfamiliar country. Believe me, independent searches on the site is a difficult task and it is not worth it. You're going to rest.

Send me a request, advise a trusted realtor, whom I myself trust. And then in recent times a lot has become a scam.

Ambula or our new home in Phuket

Having endured all the antics of the arrogant Italian, wefirmly stated - pick up the money. And for themselves decided, let's go to the police and tourist police, and we will talk directly with the owner. It is clear that you are not a person without a contract, but the police will take note of it.

Apparently feeling our stubbornness, Italiandivorced we will offer us a three-bedroom house, where the other day we moved. Perhaps we did so in vain, but this decision did not cost us anything - neither time nor money. And everything will return to our agent without our help.
