Fee to renovate condo?

Recommended Posts

I'm renovating a condo and management has said I need to pay a 6000 baht fee. Is this a thing here?

Unfortunately yes. 6000 is low. I assume it's a security deposit refundable later after fees and damages are deducted.

my experience some want 200 baht per day

Do you know what it's for? Is it put back into building maintenance? Manager has little English, so couldn't explain properly.

There is probably a daily fee and that's a deposit. Sometimes other units are damaged with renovations. Best try to get a translation.

Well a deposit in case of damage makes sense.

That's probably what it is but they're probably also deducting a daily fee so you won't get the full amount back regardless. They might want to inspect the work after it's done too. You own the interior but that's all.

Some want a lump sum deposited for any damage if doing a full on renovation

involving plumbing or electrical - then often deduct a daily inconvenience fee for noise and hallway cleaning when returning amount requested.

 

Every condo is different but that is a general idea from experience.

It's just a small condo, so there wasn't a ton of cement for a month.

Sounds like a security deposit/bond to cover possible damage from tradesmen, deliveries etc. It may even be an insurance premium to cover liability.

It shows the block is well run, otherwise its a free for all, people get a load of bricks dumped in the carpark, a tradesman trips the fire alarm, causes water damage etc.
