Issues Dealing with the Thai Condominium Juristic Person

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing issues pertaining to interacting with one's Juristic Person in one's condominium compound. 

For those who are unaware, a Juristic Person is another word for saying sort of the Corporation that deals with the administration of a condominium complex. It might be akin to the superintendent if you will of an apartment complex. It is basically the administration of a condo complex as I said a moment ago; sorry to be redundant. 

The reason for this video is it is more of a practical video than to provide information in a legal context. I hear a lot of people, especially in a western context they will say "Well I am going to go down and I am going to give them a piece of my mind to the Juristic Person." Well bear in mind that may be possible and if you have a legitimate complaint about something having to do with the administration or upkeep of the common areas for example of a condominium, which is one of the main functions of a Juristic Person is upkeep of common areas, you may have a legitimate beef, you may have a legitimate complaint and it may call for redress. That said, I would just urge, just on a personal level, politeness and cool headedness are the best ways to deal with things in Thailand. I often times will see foreigners especially who even own a condo unit in a given complex sort of get at odds with a Juristic Person. Maybe even not so much that the people working there are in conflict with that person but they just work themselves up into a lot of problems in dealing their own Juristic Person. 

The thing to take away from this video I think the information, the advice I am trying to impart here is just approach folks with a cool head and don't try to make a problem before there really is a problem. Now there may be times where it does call for some seriousness in getting something resolved but I have just found in a lot of situations where people contact us about dealing with a Juristic Person, that Juristic person is not trying to be a problem. Sometimes they don't even see what the issue is and I often see folks the work themselves up into sort of a frenzy before dealing with their own Juristic Person and it leads to a bad situation and a bad outcome in the end.
