a house in ubon

Postby tape8 » Mon Sep 20, 2010 3:28 am

building in thailand sounds easy, I'm putting up a house in Ireland at the moment and planning permision, stamp duty, insurance, council contributions, warranty, architect and solicitor fees cost me about 18,000 euros. Don't you have to go through this level of beurocracy over there? I'm hoping to build a house near Ubon in a year or two, can I get away without the red tape? God I hope so

I once went through the same in Holland. It was horrible.
Here there can be bureaucracy, more in some places than others.

If you read about my build at http://www.coolthaihouse.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1698 you will see that I have to deal with my fair share although it is peanuts.
If you read http://www.coolthaihouse.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1970 it seems like no permissions are needed for anything.

If you build within municipal boundaries you often need some kind of permit and outside the boundaries mostly not and that is about all.

You're right Max&Bee, easy was the wrong word, I'm just getting frustrated at the costs here in cold wet Ireland! There's some lovely projects on this forum, and the prices are making me drool, everything's relative I know, I've been to Thailand a good few times and its not that cheap to live

18,000 Euros just for all the permissions? You can build a house in Thailand for that. Well, almost :wink:
