Popular Post nerjaron 19 Posted March 20 Popular Post Share Posted March 20 My wife and I are having a house built on our land at Nonsung (near Korat). Ever since the foundations were laid my wife's sister and her husband (both 70's) have been regular (almost daily) visitors to our building plot where they frequently interrogate the builders and act as if they own the place. I have often complained to my wife that I don't like this behaviour and it's our house not theirs, but my wife says it's normal Thai behaviour and I shouldn't worry. Today we have returned from the city to find that a 20m section of our makeshift wooden fence and a large amount of straw have been completely destroyed by fire. The sister was at a house nearby and said that her husband had set a fire on our land but it got out of control and he couldn't stop it. The fence was quite dense and almost impenetrable to keep out the cows from next door. I was furious and told my wife that I didn't want her BIL anywhere near our building plot, but she became upset with me and said she couldn't say that to her relatives. I modified the statement and said that I didn't want him on our land unless I was present, but this still didn't sit well with my wife and she said that she would only go so far as to tell him that he "shouldn't do anything on our land". Does anyone have any constructive advice on how to keep this guy away from our property without causing an international incident? I am well aware of the folly of building near the wife's relatives but this has been her lifelong dream, but I am sick to death of these people interfering with our build, and now also our land in our absence. I am also aware that I can't own land here but I do own the house jointly with my wife. Thanks in advance. 2 3 6 Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
