      Nude or not nude, that is the question   01/05/18

      An inordinate amount of the Moderators Teams time is spent on ensuring inappropriate images are removed from the forums where necessary as per Rule 29. On investigating why people have posted nude images in a non-advanced area, the vast majority of the feedback we've had has been "I didn't realise where I was".  Therefore, we have added a visual indicator to help you quickly identify whether you are posting in the advanced or the non-advanced area. If you are in an advanced area you will notice the page background is now a pale green - green for go.                               If you do not see the green background it is your responsibility to double check where you are on the site prior to posting any images/videos. This is doubly important for those using Tapatalk due to the fact we have no control over the Tapatalk theme (i.e. Tapatalk users will not see this visual indicator). Offenders will be sanctioned.

new condo inspection, looking for help?

Recommended Posts

wrapper

Hi, I am 53 year old scottish/british guy, I have purchased a new condo in Pratumnak which I bought off plan, I didn't buy it for an investment and basically used my savings to try and improve my quality of life, in doing so i broke all the rules that i have learned by reading this forum of what not to do anyway despite this my condo is now finished and I have to inspect it at 11am on 21st July, I was wondering if there was a smart and generous guy on here who could help me with this? i wouldn't be looking for someone to blame if he missed  a fault or something, I would just like a wise head to help me with the thought that two heads are better than one especailly when I am clueless really.

I would be willing to pay for this time if needed or buy dinner or bring a nice bottle of malt over with me, whatever it took just to have somebody who even has a little clue about these things, as I said i have no clue, my condo is in a impressive new building on the beach at pratumnak soi 5, naive as i am about this, it would be great if one of the "locals" with their gained experience and local knowledge could give me the benefit of their wisdom and join me in inspecting my finished condo and maybe notice something that I simply wouldn't see.

thanks

Hi

My ( Thai ) wife and I have a small business doing property repairs and renovations.

I am a retired (?) marine ( submarine ) engineer ( Clyde Submarine Base at Faslane ), so quite pedantic by nature. I've done a couple of these pre-acceptance inspections for people over the years, usually at the behest of MagnaCarta Law Firm. I'd be happy to give you a hand/opinion, if you like. I'm not going to turn down the offer of either a free meal, or a decent ( Islay ? ) bottle of Malt . . .

Please let me know, so that I can allocate time.

Cheers

Steve

No problem, Sir. I'll make an entry in my diary.

The Isaly Malt would be ideal - used to be in a square bottle; but to be honest, I haven't found a bad Islay Malt !

Do You know the Pratamnack area ? On Pratamnack Rd between Soi's #5 & #6 is a Condotell called Tara Court, that has a ground floor bar / restaurant called O'Gara's. Suggest we meet there sometime after 10.00 - and take it from there. Just ask the service staff to point out Steve - I'm known there !

Some  questions, if you don't mind ( reply via P.M. if you prefer ) What proportion of the property is paid for, thus far ? Does the Purchase Contract state that the final payment is due within a certain period of completion / acceptance ? If so, are you aware if the City Council has issued the Completion / Habitation Certificate ? I believe I'm correct in saying that until this is done, the Development is probably on a single Title Deed. Upon issuance of the Completion Certificate, the Developers have to settle their tax liability before the Land Office will sub-divide the Development into individual properties, and issue each property with it's own Title Deed and Address Book.

I suggest you verify with your Lawyer, but I believe the Developer ( by law ) is unable to demand full & final payment until he / she / they is able to provide you with your individual Title Deed and Address Book.

It is not uncommon for developers to "ask" the clients to "accept" what looks like a finished property, and pay the balance ( to provide Cash-flow funding for their tax liability ); the client has then fully paid, but doesn't ( in law ) hold title to the property. If the Completion / Habitation Certificate hasn't been issued, the client may not be able to occupy the property. Without the Title Deed, the property certainly can't be sold.

Further to the above, NEVER pay the full price until the individual chanote (deed) is available and until all snags have been sorted to your satisfaction. People here will promise you the earth but will forget to deliver it if they already have the money. Always keep the upper hand. Be polite but firm.
