    Blocking entrance to land....

    Some help if anyone has any please?

    My wifes house is in a corner plot with public road access to the land, however there are people either side of us in both directions.

    One of them persistently blocks our entrance with his motorcycle, car, gravel from building et all.

    Does anyone know what our rights are to stop him from parking in the road as it blocks our entrance?
    We dont live there yet but i want to make him aware of his mistake and if there is any law or action to back it up.

    The guy has other issues with his house and land border proximity that i want to pull him up on, but first i want to make him aware of this before it comes an issue!


    Cheers best regards chaps
    im hot its so hot today.......milk was a bad choice!

    A nice letter written in Thai would be a start explaining your concerns and asking if he will co-operate.

    If he still persists ask the Poo Yai Barn to have a word with him. That's exactly what they are for and to solve community disputes.

    Good luck with it.

    If you don't live there why even worry about it at this time, it's hardly a problem for you at this stage and probably convienant to him to use the space, doubt you need to goto the village head honcho at this time.

    Surely you need to go to the land office to see if he owns the land which you deem as the public access road. If it is actually public your wife needs to speak with the local Tessa Ban. They should deal with it.

    Edit:- Every year we have a similar problem when the next door neighbour harvests his rice. He spreads it all down the Soi to dry it out prior to selling. The Tessa Ban is responsible to ensuring access. Let them deal with it.

    Invite him over for a friendly beer, just get you wife to translate and talk it over!

    Falangs (who they know have no title to the land) really have no leverage or rights what-so-ever in the community system here so forget about western style law or local council mediation.

    Best just play the jai dee falang until you really need access and then ask if any of his family are in the building industry and can do any work for you.

    Do you have a chanote? Hope so, if not it can get tricky. With a chanote it is easy to sort out. Be friendly but firm or they will walk all over you.

    If you don't live there and it doesn't cause problem, why do you want him to move out right now ? You're the one going to look like the trouble maker.

    I would let him know that I'm going to move next door soon and by then unfortunately he would need to find an other place where to park his motorcycle. But for the time being I would generously offer him to keep using the space. You're a nice guy and you want only good relation with your neighbors.

    Just pull up to the obstruction with your car and politely ask him to move his bike/car/gravel/whatever out of the way so you can access your house- do this often- sooner or later he'll get tired of it and will make sure the way is clear so he doesn't get bothered all the time.
    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Agree with DD. Why worry about it if you are not living there? He probalbly knows the house is vacant and parking where he does is not hurting anything, at the moment. I would probably do the same.
    Once someone moves in, I would think he will park somewhere else and if he doesn't then I would go the letter/talking route. Try to be diplomatic if he is going to be a neighbor since he could make things miserable for you. Watch the movie about two nieghbors not getting along and you will understand what I am talking about.
    Good Luck

    Agree with DD and Rick on this, he might move on his own accord once he sees you move in for longer term, best to try to solve it amicably for peace of mind in the future.

    If you need access to the land then just tell him to move his shite, if you don't then let it ride, if he see's you need access to the land I'm pretty sure he will move his shite regardless.

    cheers all for your input great information, to ease my mind.

    just to answer the point about why im concerened and why just not leave it,

    he is blocking access to a construction site, and is aware that it is in use of some kind.

    however that is not really the point, why should i be inconvenienced whenever i feel like going to the land because he parks outside the entrance? did he ask me if it was ok? no is the answer bybthe way.

    this is a very one sided event, and whilst what your saying is true because he is a neighbour, he has not extended that courtesy to us.

    the last thing i want is a problem, but i feel from events to now that he is the type of person who even though nice (at least to face)will keep doing it again and again.

    i will have a talk with him and hopefully we can arrange something.

    thank you again for the comments.

    I wouldn't go in there with all guns blazing Ben.

    Some of them Thais are nasty, especially when its a territorial thing, plus you being a farang, your murder would be the equivalent of someones dog being run over

    Just get a tractor in and have it push all the dirt and gravel away from yor property. Then put some tree branches outside your gate so it is obvious to him there is no parking allowed there. That is what most Thais would do.

    Yeah, I would be reluctant to make waves until I actually needed to use the space.

    just park your truck right outside his entrance? make sure it is very difficult for him to access his bike

    then move it when asked

    then put it back again
