Sansiri left foaming at the mouth

The developer insists 300 other condos tested at The Base Sukhumvit were fine, but online fear remains.

Three brick-sized pieces of foam, rubbish paper and candy wrappers recently found inside the wall of a condo at The Base Sukhumvit 77 may not physically harm the unit's owner, but they have already wrecked the developer's reputation overnight. 

Kristopher George Houston, owner of the condominium unit developed by Sansiri Plc (SIRI), found his wall stuffed with foam, paper scraps and candy wrappers when he tried to fix a rainwater leak. This is definitely not the first such case for a housing development in Thailand, but it could serve as a wake-up call for consumers to pay more attention to protect their rights.

Mr Houston bought a condo unit in The Base Sukhumvit 77. But once he moved in, he described the continued water leakages during rain as a nightmare. After Sansiri's after-sales staff tried unsuccessfully to repair the leaks many times, Mr Houston decided to ask an outside technician to do it.
