Rubbish accumulation shock: Chiang Mai condo unveils year-long neglect

A year-long accumulation of rubbish in a Chiang Mai condominium sparked concern among other tenants when it led to a water leak. The tenant, a 40 year old postal worker, had been absent for a year, leaving behind a room filled with waste at a lodging on Mahidol Road, Nong Hoi, Mueang District, Chiang Mai.

 

The issue came to light when water flooded from room 307 into other condos, causing discomfort for other residents.

 

The condo’s caretaker, June, guided reporters to the third floor, room 307. The tenant had been renting the room for around four to five years, paying a stable rent of 1,700 baht per month, plus 200 baht for electricity. Despite paying late charges occasionally, he was consistent in his payments, which led June to have no suspicions about him.

 

At around 4 to 5am, water started leaking from room 307, seeping into other apartments. On inspection, June found the room was submerged in rubbish accumulation and a significant water leak from the bathroom. A locksmith was called to unlock the room, revealing a shocking sight.

Absent for a year?

So was rent for the room collected/paid?

You clearly only read the headline. The answer you seek is there, not once but twice.
The tenant had been renting the room for around four to five years, paying a stable rent of 1,700 baht per month, plus 200 baht for electricity.

 The condo’s owner, a senior lady, told reporters that the tenant had been a regular payer, occasionally paying late fees.

Had been a regular payer, occasionally paying late fees... "past tense"

seems odd that a cash strapped postal worker would keep paying rent on a room for a year that he didn't occupy?

Absent for a year yet still paying his room on postal workers wages?

He was very wealthy due to inheritance from his father in law.  You have the same amount of verification of that as you do that he only had a postal workers wages.  And he could have been the Provincial Post Master with a substantial salary plus benefits. But after all you are hopeless suggesting that he is cash strapped without any basis.

It says it was neglected for a year, not left absent.

 

Neglected could just mean not cleaned or taken care of.

 

My neighbor's garden is neglected, they don't take care of it, but they live there and use it for dumping broken washing machines and sitting around screaming and howling.
