The community began as Nagalaya in 2001 and there followed a first wave of construction in the early years. In 2011 the ownership was restructured into it’s current and very safe form and the Estate was re-named Santikhiri.. Now with the legal stability that has been created, it is a perfect time to complete the Estate.
The secluded and secure community features 28 distinctive, privately owned plots of land, some of which feature exclusive homes surrounded by tropical greenery. Each property has it’s own distinctive qualities and blends in seamlessly with the exotic natural landscape, surrounded by granite boulders, native vegetation and unparalleled ocean views out to Samui's offshore islands.
Santikhiri is one of the island's most original residential retreats. A place to truly escape the stress of the world and focus on life's simple pleasures. Despite a slightly remote location, comfort and natural elegance are central to the Santikhiri experience. Unique properties draw on the soothing surroundings, and individually created architectural designs, modern technologies and personalized furnishings enhance the overall living experience creating a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living.
At the moment there are several un-built plots available for new ownership Some of the plots are available with architectural plans and Professional Project Management as part of their acquisition. Due to changing personal circumstances a few of the original owners have moved to other parts of the world so there are also 4 uniquely designed homes available.
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.
