Green Developments in Thailand
Thailand is well known for its natural beauty. The country is blessed with long stretches of sandy beaches, lush tropical forests and evergreen hills. It is no wonder tourists from all over the world flock in their thousands each year to visit Thailand to soak in its natural splendour. This natural beauty is also the very reason we have seen a huge property boom in the country.
Environmental issue is now at the forefront of every political platform in all the developed and developing nations where people are opting for greener alternatives and finding ways to reduce their carbon footprints. The issue has been around for decades but it is only recently that it has had such immense mass appeal. Consumer choices are beginning to affect the way goods and services are produced and this includes the way properties are being built. Discerning buyers are now looking, and at times, demanding for properties to be built in a responsible and sustainable manner.
It is beginning to get more and more difficult to ignore the impact we have on the environment. We as responsible citizens feel there is something we should do to help lessen the impact we have on the ecosystem. There is a sensitive balance between sustainability and commerce which has traditionally been at odds with one another. Today, however, we are starting to see an emergence of sustainable development and commercial interest being integrated into a fully marketable product. As buyers become more sophisticated, the supply in the markets for more sustainable development will inevitably follow. In the near future, we would expect ECO systems to be a common standard for all properties in Thailand.
Real Estate Investment and Potential in Thailand:
Just like a passenger jet hurtling through the sky at 800 km/h, Thailand’s real estate economy seems to have a clever way of withstanding heavy turbulence.
In recent years, the country has faced floods, political instability and, more recently in 2016, the death of His Majesty the King. Despite all of this, investor confidence in 2017 remains high, which is reflected in both property prices and the number of new construction projects being commissioned up and down the country.
Almost every sector of the market has experienced continual growth year-on-year for the previous 13 years, currently, there are over 1,000 brand new luxury properties on the market (defined as units costing over THB 10 million) in Bangkok alone.
As we know, Thailand has an ample supply of cultural cities, pretty coastal towns and tropical islands drawing in foreign investment for obvious reasons, the resort of Hua Hin, for decades, the favourite of the Thai Royal Family continues to flourish, and remains a popular destination for foreign buyers, boasting beautiful beaches, a thriving arts scene, and several world-renowned golf courses. A recently opened ferry service from Hua Hin to Pattaya, with a journey time across the Gulf of Thailand in less than two hours, plus the future construction of the high-speed train line to Bangkok and beyond gives appeal for foreign and local buyers alike and with International flights from Hua Hin airport starting later this year Hua Hin is an increasingly easy destination to get to.
The fact remains, however, is that Thailand is a more attractive investment market (compared to nearby Southeast Asian countries) for both property developers and buyers thanks to a multitude of reasons. As long as Thailand remains on the top of that ‘bucket list’ for millions of people worldwide, as well as continued infrastructure and business, we can expect that the real estate market’s resilience to stay strong.
The building (the bricks and mortar) can be owned by a non-Thai national outright in their name in what is called the house registry which secures ownership indefinitely of the structure.
In Thailand non-Thai nationals cannot own land outright in their name. Land can be controlled through either a Thai Company or a long-term registered lease. The longest registered lease term by Thai law is 30 years and most developers will offer 3 terms for a total of 90 years.
A 30 year lease period is legally protected under Thai law and ownership cannot be disrupted. It is common for developers to offer an additional two terms of 30 contractually obligating a total of 90 years.
Prior to purchasing a leasehold property it is important to secure a copy of the lease agreement or get further clarity on these three points.
#1 - Who is the lessor? (an individual or a Thai Company) Securing a lease from a Thai Company offers much more security than a private individual.
#2 - Do I have voting rights as a Lessee? (Some lease contracts do not allow lessee to have voting rights)
#3 - Is there a succession clause in the lease agreement that will allow inheritance of the lease?
