Pattaya foreigners claim damage caused by next door condo construction

A group of European residents bought houses in Pattaya only for a an unexpected large condominium complex to be built next door. They say they’ve suffered damage to their houses in the construction phase and now claim they can’t even rent out their properties due to the noise.

Complaints to the local authority and the police have fallen on deaf ears while the condo developers have just given superficial help. They say calls to police and City Hall proved useless.

Now they’re turning to the media for some justice.

Pattaya Update News reporters went to see the “Europeans and Scandinavians” in their “Grand Thanyawan Home 2” project that has been there more than ten years.

The houses – valued around 4 million baht each – are towered over by the four buildings of Arcadia Beach Resort Condominium next door.

57 year old Bjorn Ingolf Soreng led the chorus of complaints saying that the piling next door caused cracks in walls, floors and fences. He says he fears a collapse of his home walls.

“The Arcadia management sent a few guys round who painted over some cracks and replaced a few ceramic tiles but didn’t do anything more.”

Waree Seuayoosai, married to a foreigner in the same street, said they bought their property for 4 million baht 12 years ago.

“It was all nice and quiet before and they could get a good rental income.”
