The award-winning developer of Orchid Palm Homes has proven himself by designing, building & selling 8 previous developments. In addition, he has built a prestigious restaurant & wine bar – The Palm Bistro & Wine Bar – and is an advocate and contributor to a number of local charities & not-for-profit organisations.
The high-end construction and exceptional finishing, together with unrivalled customer care ensures that buying a home on one of our developments means buying with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you are working with a professional who has an outstanding track record of meeting – and exceeding – expectations time and time again!
We welcome our clients input on the design and finishing of their property; kitchen design, colour schemes, worktops and splash back choices etc. If you are new to purchasing a home in Thailand, it is also worth noting that unlike many other developments, we plaster all internal walls using British plastering method to ensure a perfect finish.
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.
After you have found the right property you have to follow these steps:
Agreement of terms and conditions
Sales and Purchase Agreement
Settlement & Transfer
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?
Thailand has different visas like Spousal Visa, Retirement Visa, Student Visa and Elite Visa - just to name a few options. Each visa has different requirements but they are usually easy to obtain.
