There are luxury Bangkok condominiums and then there are luxury Bangkok apartments.
First of ad foremost, before we are to explore the luxury side of life, one might ask “so what is the difference between a condominium and an apartment in Bangkok then? “
Apartments in Bangkok are essentially owned by one landlord. The landlord can be an individual or it can be a company. Either way, the individual or the company would own all the units in that particular apartment block and letting it out for rent. In other words, no one is allowed to buy only one unit in an apartment block, ever. Essentially, the landlord has control over the entire building. The landlord will set their own rules and in occasions whereby tenants or residences no not obey them, the landlord possesses the right to terminate the contract in view of a breach of the contract. Generally, apartments are more popular due to its convenient location to BTS stations, besides the fact that apartments are cheaper per square meter if compared to condominiums.
As for condominiums, it usually is a building containing many different units in which it will all be sold to many individuals. Many Thai condominiums owners in Bangkok opt to live in their property as they can have access to great facilities such as Swimming Pools, Fitness Studios, Security, Car Parking, Jacuzzis, Saunas, Steam Rooms, Golf Driving Ranges, Tennis Courts and Squash Courts.
The advantages associated with condominiums over apartments, are mainly the cost of the utility bills. A condominium landlord is not allowed to place a Premium on any bills, which means all the bills will be direct to the utility company and therefore the cheapest rate available. We often see that clients who wish to rent for 12 months or more, find that the condominiums Bangkok has to offer are far better value for money than the Thai apartments.
