This amazing Minor International project is the perfect opportunity to invest abroad since it is currently a favourable period to invest in Thailand.
“We are excited to introduce the ultimate luxurious Anantara lifestyle experience to owners. With only fifteen villas available, this development is a true symbol of prestige and exclusivity,”
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels Group
LOW BUYING COSTS
Currently it is a good period to invest in Thailand since costs are low.
REGISTRATION FEES AND OTHER EXPENSES PAID BY THE OWNER (FREEHOLD)
- Government Transfer Registration Fee 2% of the total appraisal land price & villa price, shared equally between the developer & the purchaser
- Administrative fee THB 5,000
REGISTRATION FEES AND OTHER EXPENSES PAID BY THE OWNER (LEASEHOLD)
- Government Transfer Registration Fee 1% of the registration price
- Stamp duty 0.1% of the registration price 3. Administrative fee THB 5,000
Upon the official launch of the development the Purchasers may exercise with the following payment terms:
– Reservation Deposit THB 1 million.
– 15% of the selling price less deposit on the contract signing date and within 30 days from reservation date
– 50% of the selling price to be paid when the construction has been 50% completed.
– Balance of payment 35% of selling price to be paid on the registration date.
It is very important to hire a real estate attorney when purchasing property. The realty industry in the country is still unregulated, so a lawyer will be able to provide more security than a mere real estate agent.
There are, essentially, two important documents that are needed: passport and an Exchange Control Form.
Owners have the option of putting the Villa into the rental program that will be managed by the neighbouring Anantara Resort and Spa. The revenues received by the hotel management are allocated to the owner (60%) and the hotel operator (40%).
Each Residence features a private infinity pool with large sundeck, spacious living and dining areas. Residents at The Residences by Anantara Phuket Layan will also have access to the amenities and services offered by the adjacent five star Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa, which include outstanding culinary experiences, an Anantara Spa, two swimming pools, a gym and a boutique.
