    Things To Know Before Buying A Condo


    May 10, 2021

    Before you rent or buy a condo (เช่า หรือ ซื้อ คอน โด which is the term in Thai) get to know what life is like and the requirements for those who decide to live in a condominium.

    • Privacy: Those who live in a condominium lose a little privacy. Nearby windows, walls, and slabs that can allow the passage of more intimate sounds, the fact that neighbors know each other’s routines and companies, all of this interferes with privacy and can generate some discomfort. After all, it is the exposure of part of your personal life, and, depending on your profile, this must be taken into account.
    • Noise: There are clear rules in the bylaws that prohibit noise within a specific time. Loud music or conversation, fights, dog barking, and even children’s play should be avoided at this time.
    • Anyway, if you want to live in an apartment, you need to be aware that you may have to endure some noise from time to time, often even involuntary. If the case is not respecting the specific time, you can call the superintendent and ask him to take action.
    • Common good: Often, something you disagree with ends up being accepted by the majority in a vote in the Assembly, and you will have to accept it. Collective approval impacts the decision to renovate, use common areas, purchase services and equipment, and other matters related to the condominium.
    • Participating in condominium meetings is also very important. And that requires dedication, discipline to schedule, and a good deal of patience to follow the discussions.
    • Rights and duties: When living in a condominium, as in any community, you need to know your duties and rights. The condominiums have rules to be followed to guarantee coexistence in harmony, although conflicts still occur.

    The Rules of Procedure, or Internal Regulations, will govern the conduct of condominium life as the name implies. The ideal is to know these rules even before buying the property. Because changing them afterward is much more complex.

    In addition to the bylaws, there is also the Convention that you need to know about. Both documents describe what can and cannot be done within the condominium, the measures to be taken in each situation, and the penalties imposed for disrespecting these rules.

    Try to know the rules before making the final decision. After all, when you become a resident of that condominium, you agree with its rules.
