    Family complains after house seized and sold for Bt2mn over Bt17,000 student debt

    A Phrae family is pleading for help after their home was seized and sold for Bt2 million to pay off a Bt17,000 student debt.


    The family has filed a complaint with Damrong Dharma Centre after receiving a letter from the Phrae Legal Execution Office telling them the house had been sold at public auction for more than Bt2 million.

    Kornthip Wongtawan explained that her sister had taken a loan to study at the Phrae Agricultural College. After graduating, she began making repayments, but then moved to work in other provinces. She stopped making repayments for a while, leaving the debt at just over Bt17,000.

    The family then received the letter from authorities telling them the property was being sold. However, neither her parents nor her uncle can read, so they sent a copy of the letter to the sister. After reading it, she hurried back home only to realise the house had already been sold.

    The family was shocked and didn't understand the move, since the house belonged to the father, not the indebted sister.

    The father's house is also the largest house on the family’ land.

    After filing the complaint, the sister said she will now visit the student loans office in Bangkok.

    Phrae Legal Execution Office director Krisana Klaanphat and Justice director Jiraphon Permpoontham visited the Damrong Dharma Centre today as part of investigations into the sale of the house. Both refused to talk to reporters.

    I guess it's probably a teak wood house.

    More like there's a lot more to this story that they haven't reported.

    They don't even know how much the house was sold for.....

    That seems a tad unethical. Whatever has become of Thailand now, once a paragon of fairness and integrity?

    A stretch even for Thailand, and even if the outstanding loan was 2m not 17k, which discredits the report because no way could she have run up that much in student loans; then someone up top needs to explain what dad had to do with this, unless he signed as guarantor.

    I'm with the monkey on this, bit fishy, could be sloppy Thai reporting, and starting to wonder which official bought the house for his son or daughter.
