In Thailand a condominium is defined as “a residential building that can have its individual units sold to private people for personal property ownership” The occupants of a condominium share ownership of areas of common use, i.e. swimming-pools, garden areas, a fitness center, the lobby area and so on.

The exterior walls and roof are insured by the condominium association, while all interior walls and items are insured by each unit owner.
