I would need some assistance from other forum members who have experience in dealing with local real estate agents. I want to rent a large condo in Pattaya from May 01.2018 onwards. The particular condo was listed for rent/sale with 3 real estate agencies in Pattaya and I contacted them one after another during the past week. Note: I am familiar with the building, location and area and therefore I wanted to close the deal before I finally arrive. The facts: The 1st agency informed me that the condo is rented until May 2018 The 2cd. agency responded back and informed me that the property will not be rented anymore according to the owner The 3rd. agency responded back and informed me that the condo is available for rent immediately. Anyway, in order to finanlize the deal the real estate agent asked for the - I guess - usual 2-months deposit to be wired into their bank account before a rental contract will be issued. The amount is THB 150K. If I would comply with it I have obviously afterwards only minor options/chances to add for example an addendum (possible purchase, verification of furniture) or change any terms within the contract. Accordingly I have asked the real estate company to provide me first with the full lease agreement and disclose dates of the owner before I wire the funds. This morning I received a blank standard lease agreement which I think is wired because I want to know with whom I am dealing with besides the agent. Overall circumstances are strange due to the different availability information I received from the agents before. Does anyone here has some more experience in dealing with local real estate agents and how does it usually works to finalize a rental online or disclose certain information ? I obviously want to make sure that I have a condo once I arrive..... and that I am not dealing with a bad apple. Thanks for any help and assistance.
