      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. There is no 90 day per year limit. Thai Visa is really the site for in-depth answers and discussions on this topic, much less so here on PA. All your questions will have been answered over there by the experts.
  2. Great, thanks a lot man !
  3. Sorry to ask but this has confused me. Farangs cannot own land so any lease to one cannot include a proportion of land ownership, only rental, is that right ? Farang buys a condo in the foreign quota, are you saying that condo only has a 30 year lease for him ? if he has bought it from another farang he only has the remainder of the time left from the original 30 year lease ?, or is a new 30 year lease given to each subsequent farang purchaser ? If its a continuation of the remainder of the original 30 year lease how does the farang renew it and at what cost and importantly from whom ?, the condo board ? If those are the cases then a Thai lease, although costing much less than a foreign lease has far more real value as Thais are not subject to the farang limitations of law, such as land ownership. I ask because the OP was talking about the ownership of the land, not the physical building initially. Now though you've brought up this 30 year lease issue. Sorry if these seem dumb questions but it would be really helpful if you could clarify these for me. Thanks
  4. Very brief video posted to get the OP,s YT view count up I guess..
  5. I guess under 30 day lets are down to if the condo board turn a blind eye to them or vote to enforce the law on owners.. I'm sure that some buildings or developments will have far more full time residents than others and it would be those people who would object to short lets, if there were noise issues or other tenant related problems caused by them. Places like VT6 obviously don't care and probably the same in easily the majority of centrally located ones.
  6. The OP,s last "everything's fine" post was on August 23 and his last log on to PA was on September 20. For all those who have put deposits down on this development I hope that work resumes soon but currently anyone thinking of buying a place there, unless it was at a rock bottom price and they were prepared to take the risk they may lose their money or that it may not be finished for years, would be well advised to stay clear of it. Does anyone know why the works have stopped ? I don't think its down to any planning issues like at Waterfront so its probably down to a cash flow issue with the developers, maybe they didn't generate enough off plan sales ?. As there are so many units someone on here must know why they've stopped.building and when or if they are going to resume. Great location with very easy walking distance to Beach Road & LK.etc so I thought this development would have been easily sold out fast, even in today's saturated condo market Is it the pricing of the units or something else ?
  7. I think you should have made the title "VT6, has anyone stayed in 27/1044 corner Walking Street side via Honeys ?" It would make your request for info more clear in the title, maybe you can still change it ? In answer though, no I haven't but it does look nice and Im sure you will enjoy your stay .
  8. It looks nice but cmon, " and only a 5 minute stroll to the famous Walking Street." Hyde Park 2 website, click on location and then zoom in to see how far away from WS it really is. Nice development and a nice condo, fair price as well but it is where it is I'm sure someone will snap it up soon though. . .
  9. Its certainly a step in the right direction. Another major one would be to scrap or at least change the 49/51% rule for condos, even increasing it to being over 50% would be significant as then the majority would be able to be in foreign ownership. A good step would be 75% foreign and keeping 25% for Thais only. That would stimulate demand and also alleviate the need for guys to buy into the Thai ownership part with illegal name only companies. I'm certain the developers would also welcome such a change. I guess that any progress is some, even baby steps towards how the 1st world functions, trouble is the Thais for Thais mentality still holds firm but maybe its slowly changing.
  10. I didn't name any particular condo development and in less than 30 seconds I just found this one for you as an example,61222.html The developers of these tiny places must think there is a market for them, otherwise they wouldn't build them. Who is that market ?, I have no idea but I do know its not me. Edit: Just found this one, its 22 sqm,87272.html Anyone know of any smaller ?
  11. I guess many of us think 53sqm is to small for anything over a studio, let alone a 2 bed but its what's being built now. As Oukiva says they are building places much smaller, even down to 24sqm. Whatever we may think about this places size or price it is what it is and the guy is only trying to sell it. Its neither freakishly small nor grossly overpriced, its just pretty typical of the new condos on offer.
  12. I made my comment because I've got a small laundry room at home and it gets hot in there when the dryers on. I've had this dryer for years though so the modern ones must work better, especially these ones that are integrated with the washer.
  13. I guess if a dryer or dryer function is used then the heat is not going to be vented outside so it will turn the condo into an oven.
  14. No elevator and its got steep stairs. Equally good location and with elevators are P72 & Jasmine Hotel and both are around the same price Nice to see loyalty from an ex employee though.
