Flat or House: How to Rent in Thailand

Postby texkourgan » Sat Jun 22, 2013 9:12 am


One of the first things to do when settling in Thailand is to find a home. In order to rent a flat/apartment or house you should familiarize yourself with the area, determine where you want to live, and evaluate what you need. Consider access to shops, schools, transport, and work.

If you have already been through the process of selecting a home in Thailand, you can provide valuable advice on how and why you selected your home, and provide tips for people moving to your area.

How did you find your accommodation? Estate agent or classifieds? Did you use a website? Or did you find your place through friends or word-of-mouth? What do you recommend?

Was it quick to find or did it take a long time? What are the essential points you considered (transport, schools, shops… etc).

How much is the average price of accommodation? What are the costs involved for renting? Do you need a deposit? Guarantees?

What are the formalities and the contract requirements in Thailand ? Are there important clauses members should consider? Is there an inventory? What are the conditions for leaving or giving notice?

Please offer your advice or questions! This is a tricky step in moving abroad and personal advice, mistakes to avoid and things to consider are extremely helpful.

Thanks in advance for sharing your experience! :)

Accommodation in Bangkok

Postby salmathailande » Wed May 24, 2017 9:22 am

I am French internship who comes to Bangkok for staying 2 months. It's very difficult to find apartment or Condo to stay for short time only 2 months.
Minimum for rental in Bangkok is always 6 months. But I discovered ' Space Immo' from my friend's suggestion. They have many room for rental less than 4 months.
Also, their agencies can speak English very well. You can try to contact them to or 0996063113 8-) 8-)
