Maintenance fees (common area maintenance or CAM fees) do vary by property and development. The maintenance fees are typically paid monthly but sometimes requested a year in advance.
The maintenance fees covers general up-keep and repair of the shared or common areas such as swimming pool, gym, reception, gardens, elevators, security staff, walkways and other communal shared areas. It also covers bills for common areas and window cleaning fees.
These typically range from 40 to 70 THB per square, although can go higher for bigger projects with a wider and more luxurious selection of facilities or required upkeep.
The maintenance fee typically does not cover cleaning or major repairs insides your actual property. In some cases it does cover basic repairs, but you will need to check with the management company and the agreement.
