TYPE OF RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY FOR RENT
1. Apartments for Rent
An apartment in Bangkok - also known as a flat - is a mid or high-rise building owned by a single landlord. Apartments are normally furnished with major appliances, and most have common facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, and car parking. The owner looks after the management and maintenance of the whole apartment building, including the interiors of the individual flats.
2. Serviced Apartments for Rent
A serviced apartment is rented fully furnished and equipped, including linen, cutlery and crockery. A daily maid service is also provided. Most serviced apartments have swimming pools, gyms and a coffee shop or restaurant. They offer a similar level of service to hotels and can be rented on a daily or monthly basis. A serviced apartment is ideal for short stays and for people who have just relocated to Bangkok.
3. Condominiums for Rent
A condominium or condo – also known as an apartment or flat in other countries - is a building where individuals own the residential units and where the areas such as hallways and swimming pools are jointly owned by all the co-owners.
Units are normally furnished and facilities are similar to apartments. The main difference between a condo and an apartment is the ownership structure and the property management. In a condominium, the building management maintains the common areas of the property and the individual owners are responsible for their units.
A house can be located in a gated real estate development or be a stand-alone property. Almost all rental houses belong to individual owners who are responsible for the maintenance. Some gated communities offer a clubhouse, swimming pool and gym.
Townhouses offer more space over several levels than single detached houses but in a terraced configuration. They may have a small rear garden but are not as private as a single detached house. They will either have direct street frontage or form part of a gated community. In Bangkok, there are some gated townhouse developments which provide facilities such as a pool for residents.
