      Forum Upgrade March 2017 - Hints, Tips and Complaints   19/03/17

      The forum is now up again and running after the upgrade - there is still the task of searching for updated versions of apps and plugins from the old version and then download, upgrade and configure    Please note any issues outside of this to this thread here where the Site Admins can then work out what needs to be reinstated when possible.         Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. I vaguely remember that UK banks do money laundering checks if you deposit over a certain amount in cash, i think its approx £6k. I haven't checked it, someone may know better.
  2. It would be interesting to know the back story
  3. Soi 15 is very popular with the guys i know, Urban, City Garden, now Centara, very good location also, near Buakhao, near 2nd road, Beach Road, Walking St. I saw an urban one for 1 year rent 17k which is good. VT6 is over rated
  4. Top secret sorry, you need to do some leg work to find the best value places
  5. Yes true, although i understand in some condos they aren't allowed to advertise for sale, example Urban. That's what an owner said. I'm not sure if its common though. Anyway....off topic, pick up another time
  6. Davidge, what websites do you use to find condos for sale? So far I've only found bahtsold to be good.
  7. Let's be honest though, unless on a family holiday Jomtien isn't a good location, not easy for mongering.
  8. In the UK the deposit would need to be paid to a 3rd party deposit scheme, not a Thai or Falang who you just have no idea whether they will give it back. Anyway, off topic, I'm out.
  9. I agree this 2 month deposit thing is making me avoid renting a condo, my hotel only wants 1000 baht but 3/6 months rent up front which is fair
  10. This one looks ok http://www.renthub.in.th/en/condo-listings/room-for-rent-the-loft-pratumnak-pattaya-two-bedroom-from-2500-per-night This one looks pretty Hiso http://www.renthub.in.th/en/house-for-rent-dream-villa-for-rent-4-bedroom-at-pratumnak-pattaya
  11. Any muppet thinking of buying one?
  12. Op disappeared a month ago, makes you wonder if he made it up or too busy at the bookies
  13. You say you are bad with money, in what way? I'm guessing you are spending beyond your means? If so you need to control that. Look at your bills are they all necessary. Cutting your costs means you will have more to invest. Have you got a 2 bed property? If so maybe rent a room out, that will cover all bills. As for investing, i like Investment Funds, UK unit trusts or OEICS, I've worked in the industry for a long time so trust how they work. I recommend iii Interactive Investor as a platform. Citywire has a good forum to ask these and maybe more technical questions plus performance of Funds can be reviewed. http://citywire.co.uk/funds/asia-pacific-equities/h12?section=money#RankModel=TotalReturns&TimePeriod=12 One of the best things i did is set up a SIPP (self invested personal pension), it gives the control to you. If I'd left the money in several pensions and didn't manage myself the performance wouldn't have been anywhere near as good.
  14. Yeah 950 baht a night is steep. 10k a month would be a reasonable level. I stay city centre in a hotel and its 12k all incl
  15. There are a couple of places on Pattaya Tai/2nd road corner for 10k, they are the kind of places you have to walk in
