Typical Utility Bills for a Condo

One of the questions we are often asked is “How much are utilities when Renting a Condo in Bangkok?”
The figures given here are an estimate based on the condo being modern, air conditioning units being modern and serviced/cleaned.

Obviously there are a lot of variables involved: number of rooms, size of condo and age of air conditioner units, government electricity, seals on windows and doors and actual time using the air conditioner. However we will give a guide for the most popular type and size of condo available: 33-40 sqm and 1 bedroom with a tenant who works each day and uses the aircon for a few hours in the evening and sleeping.

With these parameters you should have an electricity bill of between 500 and 800 baht per month, for a 2 bedroom condo double that.
If your bills are higher then the first thing to do is service your air cons and check the age of the units.
Air conditioning will be your biggest drain on electricity and a single unit that is old or requiring a service could cost an additional 1,000-1,500 baht per month.

Electricity bills will come to the mailbox at your condo and can be paid at any 7/11.
Make sure to pay bills promptly or you will be disconnected!
Water bills in Bangkok for a similar sized apartment should be between 150 and 300 baht per month.

Tips on Renting a Condo in Bangkok

#1. Use a real Professional Condo Rental Agency, NOT a freelancer.
Real estate in Bangkok is completely unregulated and the barriers for entry into the market are practically nonexistent. This has spurred thousands of ‘freelancers’ who operate outside any tax law, don’t have an office, work from a mobile phone and offer zero protection to the renter.
Encounter an issue of any kind and you can expect that once adequate command of English to disappear and subsequent calls will go unanswered.
Renting a property is probably the largest purchase you will make in Bangkok, renting from a freelancer is a sure way to join the ever increasing ranks of people who lose their deposit!

#2. Know what you want!
Bangkok is a big city and looking at 2 condos within the same area could take a morning or afternoon depending on traffic, looking for property in more than one area could take a full hot sweaty tiring day!
Before embarking on a search for a condo or house it is a good idea to have a location and a product in mind.
Don’t tell your realtor you want to rent a 2 bed condo at On Nut with a large pool and then rent a 1 bed condo with no pool at Rama 9!
If you are not sure where to stay ask us, we can make a good guess on the right location for you based on the location of your work, access to transport, requested facilities, where you like to socialize and your budget.

#3. Be realistic.
If you have read this far on our website you will have seen that that a one bedroom property in a modern condo, reasonably close to transport is not achievable for less than 12,ooo baht per month and that is an absolute minimum. There are a number of websites or blogs that will mislead by saying a room can be found for a few thousand baht per month, however for that price you will be staying in a single room with no kitchen, non-government electricity, minimal security and old and therefore expensive to operate, air conditioners, poor facilities and miles from the closest BTS or MRT.
In such a room your electricity bill will be much higher, air conditioning units may be old and seals around windows and doors will be nonexistent.
Being further from the BTS or MRT will mean you spend money on taxis and motorcycles that you would have saved by renting a condo closer to a BTS or MRT.
All of these bills mount up and you may realise that you are paying way too much for an apartment that once looked cheap!
Be realistic and budget for the best condo or house to rent that you can afford and you will enjoy your time in Bangkok a lot more!
Also you will have a lounge, kitchen, bedroom, probably a balcony, nice fitness and pool, and reasonably close to BTS or MRT, a world away from renting a single room.

#4. Get a contract in English.
Now this never fails to amaze us in the office, we get a number of requests for help each week from people who signed a contract in Thai and are having difficulty getting their deposit back.
Our question is always ‘why did you sign a contract in a language you can’t read?’
Watch Thai people when they are presented with a contract, they read every word because everything is in the contract, rights for renters in Bangkok are practically nonexistent.
It really does take a special kind of stupid to nonchalantly sign a contract you can’t read.
