Previously, the platform has talk about "Expired Indonesia Driving License Can be Extended, Note the Conditions!", "A Man In Surabaya Jailed For Stealing His Own Car", you may read also "Prices of Houses that Foreigners Can Buy and Own in Indonesia" and on this occasion we will discuss about 'Not paying 3 months' rent, man allegedly locked by apartment owner until he starved to death'.

Have you ever been late paying your rent for a house or apartment? What experiences have you had and what the unit owner did when you were late paying? A man in Malaysia had a bad experience. He starved to death because he was allegedly locked from the outside by the apartment owner. This incident was widely discussed in Malaysia. His body was found by neighbors in July 2023. "It is believed that the owner locked it because the victim did not pay rent for 3 months".[1]

The victim, who was a 40-year-old private driver, was reportedly unable to seek help because he did not have enough money to buy telephone credits. However, it is not clear whether the apartment owner knew there was someone inside or not when he locked the door. The victim's lawyer said that, despite the fact that the tenant could not pay, the owner could not immediately lock the apartment door because it was potentially dangerous and could cause death. In addition, he said, it is also a form of imprisonment.[2]

"If the tenant defaults, the owner can obtain a court order through the courts, or handle it through a small lawsuit," he explained further. “Tenants should not be locked out”. "We have just taken up the case and will submit it to court as soon as possible to seek justice for the deceased," he added.[3] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us then, feel free in 24 hour, we will be glad to assist you.
