Real estate in Thailand, buying and selling

Recently, Thailand has been leading the overseas property market. Strange as it may seem, but approximately 60% of Thailand’s real estate is sold to citizens from the former Soviet Union. There are many reasons for this popularity — affordable prices, the economy is developing, and a comfortable climate.

For foreign citizens, there are restrictions — you can only buy apartments in condominiums. Foreigners are not allowed to buy land plots. But there are perfectly legal ways for a foreigner to buy Thai property. For example, registration of land for a Thai company. A company is recognized as Thai if 51% of the authorized capital is owned by Thais. Further, land is bought through the firm. If all the documents are drawn up correctly, then, as a rule, the owners do not have any problems. The advantage of buying land and buildings for a Thai company is that it will cost 15-20% less than buying in the name of a foreign citizen. Another way a foreign citizen owns land is long-term lease. Usually set for a period of 30 years, for leases with the possibility of further renewal. It is also necessary to issue a lifetime right to use the property that is located on the site.
