Re: Moving in before paying for house - your thoughts?

Don't understand any delays. Simple, they transfer money same day as going to land office, it's theirs, and not until both done. That's common sense.

Re: 'How To' - Requirements for visa extensions etc

Obviously needs to renew his passport, as that one is useless. But, I couldn't find any changes, still at total of 800k, a year, whether savings, income (65k monthly) or combination: - A copy of bank statement showing a deposit of the amount equal to and not less than 800,000 Baht or an income certi...

Re: Used Motorcycle Helmet

I'm a hard fit (L), bought new for 600 and sure it will take a few bounces, even hard. If it cracked, not sure the rest of me would be worth saving at that point.

Re: Starbucks Coffee Shops

Like there isn't enough crappy coffee here, that they have to 'import' a chain and sell the worse coffee at just silly prices.

70 with young lasses.........seems envious.

Lo-so......not financially, if buying SB's crap, as not cheap.

Re: Bluport wine/beer bar - drinks + 10pct service + 7pct VAT on top.

Places that apply SC, I will usually not visit, unless highly recommended for food, AND .... CS, as a 10 % tip is high, except in the USA, where tipping is part of the salary, based on receiving such, and 15 % is standard. Though 20 % is so much easier to calculate, and since working in the restaura...

Re: Setting a property sales price

Yes, cookie cutter houses in developments are a hard sell, especially as many pay toO much going in. Not taking a loss is hard enough, without expecting and ROI.

Re: Farang buying a house with a Thai lady

I know 2 people who went through the court system for divorce and assets settlement, and it was about a 50 / 50 split, (Equity / value of possessions) as lined out in Thai law. Pretty much the same as most western countries. When purchasing land, it is hers / his, Thai national owned. The rest is pe...

Re: Do you use your phone while driving.

Not in my car, wife and kid talk to my constantly. Talking while driving isn't much of a challenge. Even talk to the dog sitting my lap, now that could actually be an issue, but my 'risk management team' assures me, it's an acceptable risk. After my teen years, 40+ of driving have been fairly oops f...

Re: Thai Partner wanting to buy property in thailand

Actually, the only question you should be asking is: Do YOU want to buy her family a house to live it, because that is the reality of it all. Simple. Personally, I would stay clear of that one, and continue on as things are, simply enjoy living together in OZ. The family got along fine before you, a...
