While many pest control tasks are easy and inexpensive to do yourself, some will require the job of a pro. Most homes in Phuket have their fair share of unwanted critters. Not only can pests leave behind toxic messes and contribute to allergies, they can potentially damage the structure of your home. This article will give you a guide.
Thailand is full of culture, wonder and beauty around every corner. When you’re considering a move to a new country, Thailand is often overlooked but it can be a place worth calling home and the country offers so much to the newcomer.
The Move is Easy
Making the move to Thailand can be easier than you think. With a few steps, you can not only have a beautiful place to live, but a visa that you can use to legally live here and bring all your belongings to your new home.
Finding a Home
Keep in mind that foreigners cannot purchase land in Thailand. However, there are many ways in which foreigners can structure their investment legally with the help of a local property law firm.
The purchase of a condo or apartment with a “freehold title” is available to foreigners and the Thai Condominium Act protects foreign investment.
Here in Thailand, most villas are constructed of concrete and steel. They use a post and beam structure of reinforced concrete with brick and mortar walls. Pilings are set into the ground and tie into a substructure that supports the villa.
The structure of the villa will last far longer than the economic life of the individual components. This type of construction is strong but the main reason they use it here is because of the weather. The question of “useful life of a Villa” sometimes comes up in conversation.
Over time, due to wear and tear, those individual components beak down and need repairs or replacement. Knowing the age of a villa will give you an idea when they’ll likely need maintenance and replacements again.
Basics of Running Electric to Land Plot
Due to the costs of installing a new electric supply, confirming the existance of an existing electricity supply to your land plot is a crucial issue to consider prior to purchase. Electricity is the most important utility and potentially the most costly in terms of new installations.
If your on a public road that has more than 20 homes the electric company should have the electric poles up and electric wires run already. Your cost will be in bringing it to the house.
You will need the following before bidding the job out: do I want single phase or 3-phase, how many amps do I require and distance to the nearest grid.
