General information when buying or renting a property

 

Developer
In Thailand are most large objects built from private property development.
In Pattaya, many of the largest construction companies such as Matrix, Global To p, Height Holding, Blue Sky, Sansiri, Supalai the market operate. Mostly 2 - 3 objects are designed and built at the same time.
While the big companies have mostly been completed up to 20,000 homes as Height Holding, are many smaller companies such as New Nordic, Max, Siam, the 500 units mostly oriented to order to specific target groups. 
Nordic (a Norwegian Consortium) builds, sells, leases its equipment on Pratamnak Hill in over 50 cross-objects with more than 500 apartments and 80 commercial sites.
Max (under German leadership) has a ready-made system, builds a new object and also provides sales and rentals.

 

Construction and Sale
The developer chooses a plot, possibly several plots are merged. Since this is usually only an administrative act, the same architects are commissioned to plan the desired object and make the cost calculation and provide a construction request at the building authority.
So the object is already presented to the public. The building is original miniatured in plastic.Issued is it in a showroom, an office, which also includes accurately reproduced apartments, including device, floor, balcony size and tiles.
At this point you can buy the property. The price is cheaper than after completion to 20%.
Normally the object is advertised 2 years long and sells apartments. In the meantime, the construction permit and environmental impact, also arrived the earthquake security advisories at skyscrapers from 14 floors. On average, are sold in these 2 years to 65% of dwellings.
Now is the start of construction, the construction period is the average of 2 years for 500 apartments. A shell projectile is created every week, during the 3 storey concrete this place on the 1st floor already the Interior instead. In skyscrapers partially the lower floor are already finished furnished while still the pool is concreted in the 40th floor.

 

Foreigners quota
All objects are by Thai law divided into 51% Thai quota and 49% Foreign quota, the so-called Proportion of foreign nationals.
However, the foreigner can also buy a Thai home, this is then passed over a Thai Company, which is especially established for it. These are partly over 10% cheaper than at the Foreign odd. Who wants to use an apartment as an investment, it is sometimes useful to rent a Thai Company, it must file a tax return each year. The government has just stated that currently only on Phuket more than 500 apartments are offered with Standard Hotel in Hotel exchanges, but have no license and also the Thai state do not pay taxes.

The location
You want to have an ocean view, no problem, but considerably more expensive.
Pattaya attracts 12 km from Naklua to Na Jomtien on the Gulf of Thailand along. Here you have to decide which area comes into question for you.
Popular Naklua is built with the Wong Amat Beach, but very narrow and with many skyscrapers. More space is left on the Pratamnak Hill and at the Jomtien Beach and the Jomtien 2nd Road.

Next to it is the juristic Office. The bills for electricity and water are monthly created here, the dripping faucet in your bathroom? The light bulb is broken and you dont have a ladder, no problem, just go to the juristic office and in 10 minutes is one of 5 salaried craftsmen at your door.

Each apartment has one or more Aircon's that are built on the balcony and is connected at its own electricity meter.

Alternatively, we offer furnishing, crockery and furniture packages. You decide and everything will be delivered, unpacked and stowed.

Thailand Infos

If it is the first Thailand vacation, diving guaranteed to questions about travel planning. What can I expect in the country, what about security, health risks and more.


Airfare
The fare depends on various factors. In the peak season flights are more expensive than in the off-season. During the school holidays in the individual provinces prices pull again sharply. There are rarely bargain prices even on Christmas and New Year.
The individual airlines make their fares also vary widely, with a non-stop flight is more expensive than a flight with one or even several stopovers.
If the airline provides a more hour layover, this has a favorable effect on the price, but if you like waiting 15 hours at an airport on the flight. Therefore, when booking make sure that the total flight time exceeds with change not 16 hours.


Visa for Thailand
For a short break of up to 30 days you don't need to apply for a visa. A residence card is to fill in each aircraft which flies to Thailand. However, the passport must be valid at entry 6 months.
You get a stamp in the passport, and to this residence card, both together allows visitors to stay up to 30 days. The stay may at any immigration office in Bangkok in the district of Sathorn, Soi 3 or Suan plu, Sathorn Road, Pattaya, Soi 5 JomtienRoad be extended by another 30 days. The cost is 1900 Baht.
A tourist visa or Non - O - Immigrant visa is valid for 1 year and must be requested prior to the trip at a Thai consulate. Conditions previously read on the website of the Thai Embassy or consulates.

Luggage
During the high season from November to April, temperatures are around 30 degrees. At night it sometimes cool down to 24 degrees. Especially in the north, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Golden Triangle and the mountains of the National Park, it can be quite chilly. A jacket is recommended here.
All travelers should bring as little as possible on clothing in the South, Bangkok, Pattaya, Krabi, on the islands around Samui or Phuket.
There are an almost infinite range of clothing on every street corner, in the markets and in the bazaars. Many copies of international brands from Adidas to Gucci, whether shirts, bags, shoes, jeans and watches can be found everywhere. T-Shirt for 2.50€, Jeans for 8€, Adidas Sport jackets around 15€.
In all shopping malls international shops are to be found with originals.
There are also at each corner small laundries which wash, iron, and sew for little money .
When shopping definitely pay attention to the total weight. Overweight will cost you a lot of money on the return and is calculated per kilogram.
 A small shoulder bag or backpack start from 5€.
In the country and also on the islands a mosquito net is recommended, which you can buy everywhere.
A pair of sunglasses, protective skin cream with high sun protection factor and a hat is an absolute must.
Prescribed medication duration should bring in sufficient numbers. A first aid kit I recommend only for travel to the Thai hinterland.
There are everywhere in the cities and islands small pharmacies, so you can buy medications if necessary.
Hospitals, both public and private, distributed almost all over the country. Treatment costs have the Thai Baht or be paid by credit card.

Seasons
In addition to the moderate time for high season around 30 degrees, there is the hot season and the rainy season.
High season runs from November to the end of April, and thus the most expensive holiday period.
From mid-March to late May, the temperatures rise up to above 40 degrees, the end of May following the rainy season and the off season with some very reasonable prices almost at the end of October.
Mostly the storm take a few hours for it to bring masses of rain and flood the cities and villages. Despite constantly new retention basins and street drains, it is not yet able to be master of the rain masses. To stand for hours at streets themselves in Bangkok and Pattaya knee-deep under water. Although the rain brings some cooling, shortly after temperatures rise above 25 degrees again.
 
After months of drought, the human, the animals and nature through the first rain and entire landscapes and regions would be awakened to new life.

Flying And Housing While On Vacation
Many people book a package holiday to spend a vacation, but remain only in one place.
It is recommended, therefore, at least those who can afford it, to book flights and hotels separately. Bangkok for 3 days and then off to Pattaya or in the south of the islands of Samui, Phuket or in the north. Flight connections across Thailand are usually several times a day available and very cheap with regional Airlines e.g. Bangkok Air, Air Asia and Nok Air. So you can get to several places and islands and provides considerably more.

Apart from the hotels you can find on every corner small rooms to stay, partly from 10 € in pensions and on the islands small bungalow's for little money.

General
Few Thais speak English, and then usually more bad than good.
The electrical current is 220 volts, very rarely, an adapter is required in sockets.
I recommend to all to buy a Thai SIM card. On the arrivals level at the airport in Bangkok, there are AIS, TRUE and DATAC small shops, tourist cards to offer. It is considerably cheaper to make phone calls or to surf. 

Health Risks
Thousands of food stalls can be found on every street corner. In most cases the families are offering with handcart or scooter with sidecar day and night to tens different corners of their different dishes. The food is very tasty and harmless to health. Hundreds of restaurants of all nationalities can be found everywhere. In large supermarkets or shopping centers there are Foodcorts with plenty of choice. Haute cuisine outside the hotel can be found in the tourist areas everywhere.
 
Vaccination is not required. Malaria-prone regions are rare and rather the border in the jungles of Cambodia and Myanmar.
Dengue is frequently found during the rainy season. In particular, when in puddles and ponds collect water.
At the first signs (fever, weakness, headache, and diarrhea), you should immediately see a doctor or a hospital.
Diarrhea caused by the hot air and the change in diet are more common. 
At least 3 liters of water a day are required. The heat of the body quickly loses fluid and risking heatstroke. The tap water is not potable, drinking water is on every street corner in plastic bottles to buy.
Generally you should make in the tropics for cleanliness. Washing hands several times or even several times showering duty since bacteria multiply in the tropical climate rapidly.
Disinfect open wounds immediately and provided with a patch, because of flies and bacteria. inflamed wounds take forever to complete clearance.
700,000 street dogs are estimated throughout Thailand, so you can only advise to be careful and not to irritate, to call, stroking etc. Since most are not vaccinated can transmit rabies. After a dog bite you have to go to the hospital!

Rental Vehicles
In Bangkok it is more difficult to hire a scooter. Cars are offered. I can not recommend anyone to drive In Thailand we drive on the left, and the traffic in Bangkok is not comparable to western conditions. Partly on 3 different heights, the traffic flows, the lowest are the neighborhood streets, a floor above the freeways and above up to 12 traces the Expressway's.
In the coastal regions and islands there are scooters at every turn, partly for 6 € a day to rent. Pay attention to the insurance, and if a lender wants to retain the original passport, then look for another lender or book through the hotel. Attention, mark every scratch on the scooter or take a picture, some moped owner gamble you up ... ..Same count for Jetski lender.
The police lock daily whole streets and check every vehicle. On major intersection are police boxes with police men.
A license from ur native country is usually not considered a valid document and usually costs at controls 400 Baht penalty. The problem would probably not be the little money, the police can not cashier at the penalty spot. So you have to leave your vehicle, take a taxi to the police station to pay the fine, go back by taxi, hand out the receipt and then you get you vehicle again. Because in the meantime, many policemen are all equipped with helmet cameras transmitted to the center, you should not bribe the police ...... which is then really expensive.
