A beautiful corner house with surrounding gardens in the top residential area of Khon Kaen at Chonlada Land and House opposite Nong Kod Lake.
Just completed painting the whole house and renovating bathrooms and kitchen and replacing all mosquito nets and curtains.
The sale presents an attractive investment opportunity as the house is currently rented out at 50,000 baht/month to an American family who will stay in Khon Kaen for another five years. The present lease expires on 12 October but if the new buyer does not want to move in he/she
can renew the lease at 50,000 baht plus an amount equal to the this year’s infaltion index.
Foreign nationals can own the building (house) in their own name but not the land that it stands on.
Foreign nationals cannot own land in Thailand. The options in which a foreigner can control the land are via a 30-year lease or by purchasing the land through a Thai company.
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 at Chonlada Khon Kaen you have to follow these steps:
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.
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.
