An apartment is, in fact, an apartment (as a room or part of a house) in an apartment building. Obtaining rights to own apartments, you only receive rights to own this particular part of the apartment building, excluding the joint ownership of any common property.
A condominium is a single complex of real estate, including a land plot, a residential building located on it, and other real estate. At the same time, separate premises (including apartments) intended for residential or other purposes (for example, restaurants, shops) are owned or long-term leased, and common property (such as a swimming pool, playgrounds, gym) is in common shared ownership.
Maintenance of the condominium (maintenance of cleanliness in the adjacent territory and inside the building, solving water supply problems, landscaping, etc.) is carried out by its own management company. In accordance with the share of the acquired living space, the costs of managing common property are also divided.
Utility payments are divided into the communal itself (payment for electricity, water) and the management company fee.
In the condominium there are always rules of residence, such as, for example, separate collection of garbage or keeping pets.
Thus, the main advantage of a condo (more precisely, “apartments in a condominium”) over a separate apartment (more precisely, “apartments”) in an apartment building is its infrastructure. According to the living conditions, the condominium is somewhat reminiscent of a resort, offering its residents special conditions. Owning an apartment in Layan Green Park condo, you automatically get access to all the amenities of the complex. The more infrastructure facilities there are in the complex, the more prestigious it is, and the housing in it is more expensive.
It is also important to note that in Thailand, realtors and developers often use the word “apartments” in conversation, meaning “apartment in a condominium”.
An apartment can be decorated in one of two ways:
According to the current legislation, non-Thai citizens can only purchase 49% of the living space of apartments with full ownership (the so-called foreign quota). At the same time, the remaining part of the area can be acquired on the basis of a long-term lease with the possibility of extension: at the moment, the maximum term of one extension permitted by law is 30 years. Such periods of legislation presupposes 3, that is, 30 + 30 + 30 years, totaling 90 years. If you sell the apartment later to another person, the term is reset.
The state registration fee currently amounts to 1.1% of the price of an apartment in the case of a lehol and 6.3% of the price of an apartment in the case of freehold. The state duty is payable to the Land Department upon registration.
