Losing our house

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I guess the two shipping terminals being constructed in Kampot are just for fun then...

If there's just you and your kid then a two bed would probably be ok but it'll be 3-400. You a member of the facebook groups for property here? If you are willing to pay for a four bed then if the Chinese guy doesn't come through I'll have a place for you. You could also try Kleang Ler as that's where we're migrating to, out of necessity really.
I have 3 boys and as of two nights ago a freaking dog. Lol. And my wife. I am a member of the property group but don’t see any recent updates. Appreciate the info!

Quite possible!

This is a story I've heard so many times over the past couple of years from Sihanoukville. Unfortunate, and depressing as there's no reason to believe why it couldn't eventually happen everywhere else. :?
It won't happen anywhere else in Cambodia on the massive scale it's happening in Sihanoukville, the Chinese are basically colonizing it as one of their overseas posts for their international business,
other places don't have huge ports, so are of no interest to the Chinese, except Phnom Penh which is the capital which is of interest to them for being the center of gov't.

I know you've been around long enough to a) realise that if your lease is legitimate, you can't actually be forced out due to a change of ownership without recompense, and b) it's not worth chasing the recompense - right?

Actually, we only have an agreement by SMS for the new contract so I know that’s worth nothing. And as far as contracts are concerned, they don’t mean anything either down here. I’ve heard stories of landlords booting tenants early way too often.
