Renting Guide - Determine What You Want!

Before you begin looking for a place to rent, take the time to consider:

How much can you afford to spend,
What type of home do you want,
Where would you like to live.

How much can you afford to spend

There are three main costs associated with renting:

Start-up costs,
Periodical rental payments, and
On-going living expenses.
You will need to work out how much you can afford to spend on all three of these costs. Failure to do this could see you miscalculate your total expenditure and blow your budget. You could end up paying money on the security deposit, advance rental and find yourself unable to pay for the satellite television or telephone connection.

Use an income and expenditure worksheet, to determine your personal budget. How much could you afford to spend on rent each month after taking into account all other living expenses? Make sure you allow for unexpected expenses, e.g. medical or car repairs. Perhaps even allow an extra 10% of expenditure to ensure you can cover these expenses.

Quick Tips
If you are trying to save money for a future expense, e.g. a deposit on a home or annual health insurance, remember to factor this into your monthly expenses. You could put it away in a special savings account so that you won't be tempted to use it for entertainment or the like.

Now determine how much you are likely to spend on start-up costs, such as:
Security Deposit (Bond),
Rent in advance,
Furniture removalists,
Connection of services, e.g. electricity, telephone, cable TV,
Furniture, e.g. bed, table & chairs, fridge, curtains and etc.,
Kitchen utensils, e.g. cutlery, crockery, cooking pans and etc.,
Linen, e.g. towels, sheets,
Hot Water Shower system.
Do you have sufficient savings to pay for all these items? If not, then keep in mind that many of these items could be provided by the landlord, borrowed from friends or bought second hand.

What type of home do you want

There are many different types of rental housing to consider, including:

Houses: freestanding bungalows,
Semi-detached houses; one common wall,
Condominium: apartment or unit,
Serviced Apartment: includes services similar to those found in hotels,
Shopfronts: standard Thai constructions 4 metres wide and usually rising three to four floors - equivalent to terraced houses,
Holiday Accommodation.
Where would you like to live

Both your budget and your lifestyle will influence where you choose to live. When considering the financial aspects, start by taking a look at the average rental values in the areas you like. This will enable you to determine which areas are likely to be within your budget.

Finding a location that suits your lifestyle is also very important. Look through the following list and note down those factors that are important to you.

Close to work place
Access to Public Transport
Close to Family/friends
Close to shopping facilities
Close to Hospitals
Close to Schools
Close to Beaches
Close to Parks
Close to Sporting Facilities
Close to Restaurants and Entertainment venues
Appealing streetscape
Low noise area

Once you have worked out exactly what you want, it is time to start looking for suitable rental accommodation. This will involve:

Searching for rental vacancies,
Inspecting the property,
Lodging an application.

Searching for rental vacancies

There are many sources to consult when searching for rental vacancies, such as:

Internet: which is becoming an increasingly popular means of advertising rental accommodation. Use our Search for Rental Accommodation to access rental properties.
Newspapers: check out the classified sections of metropolitan, and local papers, and trading classifieds.
Real Estate Agents: try to approach several agents and inform them of your needs, this way you will learn about rentals that are not advertised and also hear of newly listed rentals.
Shop Windows/Noticeboards: Some of the major supermarkets and law offices display rental notices.
Family and Friends: don't forget to tell people that you are searching for somewhere to rent. If you are lucky, someone who has the perfect place for you may hear about it.

Inspecting the property

Do not rent a property unless you have personally inspected it. Checking out a property won't take long and could save you from renting a place that looks good on paper but is terrible in reality.

Because you are likely to see several properties, it is a good idea to write down your impressions of each property. This will help you to compare places and also assist your recollection of each properties features.

Quick Tips

Perhaps you could develop a personal list of critical factors on which to rate a place
