The issue of foreign visitors staying in condos on daily rental agreements has been raised again in Bangkok.

A group of tenants went to Manager to complain after they discovered that owners in their building near the Sam Yan intersection on Rama IV were contravening condominium rules.

A sting was set up and foreigners were seen using methods to get round fingerprint scanners to enter the luxury building. 

The juristic person had previously put out notices reminding owners that offering rooms on platforms like AirBnB on a daily basis was illegal.

They threatened that people contravening such rules would have their water cut and be fined 5,000 baht. 

Now a tenants’ group is demanding that the Bang Rak police take action against the condo committee whose chief they say is a “man in khaki” who refuses to accept there is a problem. 

Their complaints have fallen on deaf ears. They claim that opening the condo up to daily rent is unsafe whether it is Thai or foreign tourists staying at in their building.

The building concerned was not named in the Manager story.
