Title Deeds in Thailand may be mainly divided into 4 categories as follows:
This type of title grants the holder of this document full rights over the land, to deal with or to use it to the exclusion of others.
Thus, if you are planning to buy land in Thailand, this type of title deed is the best and most credible title deed to hold.
This type of title deed is least recommended. A land with a possessory right has never been substantiated by Department, but is only recognized by tax payments at the Local Administrative Office.
It is essential to bear in mind that title deeds other than one of a Chanote, is not allowed to register any leases against the land such as, usufructs, mortgages or superficies in order to gain encumbrance.
Although Thai Law stipulates that a foreigner may not own land in Thailand, there are alternative options to owning a land in Thailand. We would be more than happy to discuss the options available to you with a meeting, an over the phone conversation, or by email.
