Phuket Condominiums are unquestionably one of the preferred ways to enjoy the stunning tropical paradise island of Phuket and the variety of condominiums in Phuket available to the discerning client for sale and for rent is sufficient to meet all individual requirements. Enjoying the Phuket lifestyle, often the preserve of the rich and famous, without stress or worry is a main concern for many people looking to buy property in Phuket and may find a Phuket condominium offers all of the luxuries one associates with Phuket property but without the concerns of maintenance and what happens to the property in Phuket when the owner is overseas. Phuket condominiums are contained within well managed environments and the entire world’s leading management companies are represented on Phuket. The advantages of owning a Phuket Condominium are many and various but here are just a few examples of what sets Phuket condominiums apart:
Ease of ownership
Phuket condominiums can be owned outright by the purchaser, and most condominiums come with Foreign Freehold Condominium ownership title which means a foreigner can own the freehold of the property in his or her name for life or can bequeath that ownership to their next of kin. It is a sophisticated and foolproof ownership structure specifically designed to give the foreign owner complete peace of mind. There are few regions in the world, and that includes the UK and Europe, which offer such a safe and solid ownership structure.
Phuket condominiums are contained within a safe and well managed secure environment and all maintenance is covered by the management company who make an annual charge for this. The charges can only be made with complete agreement of all the owners. Qualified management companies are usually asked by the owners to tender for the management rights after being given the criteria by which the owners agree they require. The management rights will usually be offered for a term of two years so the management company can do their job and when their contract comes to an end it is the decision of the owners whether they wish to extend the management contract or put it out to tender to other management companies. CBRE, Knight Frank, Jones Llang la Salle amongst many all offer their services to Phuket condominium developments. By law the management company must post monthly figures to show where their fees have been spent and at the end of each management year they must provide a full audit to ensure the fees have been spent wisely and a sufficient reserve kept in place at all times. Items covered under the management fees of a Phuket Condominium will typically include property and common area maintenance, security, garbage collection, pest control, property insurance and may include additional items like Wi-Fi, Satellite or cable TV and concierge services. The maintenance fee is usually set according to the size of the property i.e. per sqm per month but this one item covers just about everything an owner could wish for leaving him or her to simply enjoy the luxurious lifestyle a Phuket condominium offers.
Phuket Condominiums come in all styles, sizes and locations and vary in price from as little as THB 2 million to more than THB 100 million. The best part of owning a Condominium or real estate Phuket in general is just how much you get for your money when compared to prices of similar properties in other comparable parts of the world. From super compact studios to magnificent penthouses there is a Phuket condominium to suit every taste and budget.
