Buying Property in Thailand
Let's be perfectly clear from the start...As a foreigner, you will not be allowed to purchase land in Thailand, you can legally own a unit in a condominium block but not land. There is no other way to say it but this is how it is here and unless there is a huge shift in the law this will remain the case but it is not a negative situation.
There are perfectly legal & acceptable alternatives that are being used by people to enable them to settle in this beautiful country and enjoy its glorious weather, fabulous cuisine & wonderful sights all year round in your own little slice of paradise.
One of these is the long term lease hold option that allows a company or Thai individual to "lease" the land on which your home resides, and own the house, with the option to be able to renew your lease after a set period of time.
Condominiums fall under a different area of the law, in as much as you are not buying land but more owning a piece of the building and not the land it sits on. There are, of course, conditions around this that must be met to enable the foreign ownership.
There are a great many things that we can tell you about this but we would rather not make your head spin with a huge amount of irrelevant information, we would prefer to tailor the information to your own specific requirements, and for this, if you could please fill out the form on this page with as much information as you can then one of our professional team will contact you within 24 hours to discuss with you and provide you with all the information you need.
