Santi Thani is a villa development located in Bang Por, Samui, Thailand. It is 1.5km from the beach with 80 villa units completed in October of 2007. It is hotel-managed and features a fitness center, 24-hour security, CCTV, car parking.
Inspired by local culture and available for renting, Pai Chon Villa is a quaint villa overlooking the Angtong Marine Park with views of the Gulf of Thailand, just a few minutes from Chaweng Beach and not too far (or too close) from the shopping, entertainment and nightlife areas.
Completed in October 2007, this tranquil get-away has three spacious bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, king-size beds and stunning ocean views. This luxurious and comfortable villa is adorned with modern furniture and soft furnishings.
An outside dining terrace and outside lounge, both with a ceiling fan, make Shakufa an ideal tranquil get-away. The villa also has an outdoor pool with spacious pool deck and loungers. The villa is located only 15 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the Santiburi Golf Course.
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.
