Real estate in Thailand
- A foreigner, typically, cannot own land in his / her own name.
It can be possible but it is very complicated and involving a lot of conditions.
- A foreigner can lease land for up to 30 years at a time in his / her own name.
This is guaranteed by the government.
A lease is renewable 2 times.
- A foreigner can own the house or building on a piece of land as distinct from the land itself.
- A foreigner can enter into a legitimate partnership with Thai nationals in a majority Thai-owned company that develops real estate, not a shell company.
- A foreigner can own a condominium in a registered building with not more than 49% foreign ownership overall; however, as yet there are no such buildings in Krabi.
