Hua Hin Property Rentals

If you are not looking to rent a house in Hua Hin, Thailand, you will be either renting a flat or condo. So what exactly is the real difference? Well, a condo can be a building belonging to just one entity and just for rent, as opposed to a condominium which consists on many units which may be available or rent, by different owners.

I find that Hua Hin apartments units also are generally larger plus more spacious than condo units, due to the fact condominiums can be purchased for any profit, thus it is just natural that the developer attempts to squeeze as numerous units into one building. Perhaps this is actually the case anywhere about the world and condo units are only able to get smaller using the rising construction costs.

However, there exists a utility surcharge for all Hua Hin apartments which can be quite significant when you total that all up after monthly. Electricity charges direct in the M.E.A. is 3.75 baht per unit and apartments have a tendency to charge between 4–7 baht per unit based on the grade of the apartment and the facilities it provides. Apartments usually charge a flat rate for water, around 1000 baht each month that is about a 100% mark up from the actual rate.

For apartments, all maintenance and repair costs are contained in the rent, but condos, based on your landlord, most private contracts stipulate how the tenant is responsible for day to day, minor repairs not exceeding 2000 baht each time.

Another thing many tenants are concerned about is getting broadband internet connected at home. ADSL in Thailand comes from the line. There, when you have a line connected at home, you are able to virtually get online. However, if the rental unit is surely an older property, odds are your phone lines will be in analog making getting ADSL impossible. The only way around that might be put in a new, digital line yourself which is a pretty painless process and requires a about a week to become installed.

Almost all rental properties come internet ready — meaning there exists a telephone line installed. Meaning, there’s a digital line installed where one can easily apply for an ADSL account with any local ISP. For some reason, majority of landlords like the internet connection to be made inside the tenant’s name that is easily done. Internet expenditure is rarely contained in the rent unless indicated specifically on our website or during final negotiations.

The same applies for long-stay apartments. Internet line is connected once you move around in and disconnected when you transfer, until another person gets control the unit. However, serviced apartments really are a difference case. Since they operate like hotels, wireless internet is normally easily available whenever you check in and within the rental rates.
