An Independent Realtor

It can be challenging for a foreigner to buy land for sale in Thailand. Many times just locating Thailand property for sale can be exhausting. Our company specializes in assisting foreigners interested in acquiring Phuket land for sale. We also help clients looking to sell their land. 

Currently, we have over 50 active land listings for sale all with proper paperwork and proper land title deeds. Since 2013, Phuket Realtor has helped hundreds of clients safely buy and sell property for sale in Phuket Thailand. 

Land Ownership as a Foreigner

In Thailand by law, foreigners are not allowed to directly own land. Foreign clients interested in buying land for sale in Phuket Thailand have three options: either lease the land, set up a Thai company, or work with a Thai partner.

One option is simply to acquire the land on a leasehold basis. The maximum lease on land in Thailand is 30 years with the possibility for 2 extensions written into the contract making a total lease term of 90 years. While a leasehold may not offer direct ownership, it does offer exclusive rights to the use of that land and property. 

Leasehold rights are registered on the back of the title deed at the land office. It does require some work at the end of each 30-year lease term but can be a simple and hassle-free way to enjoy and purchase land in Thailand. Retirees wanting to build a holiday home may find this solution attractive.

Another option for foreign buyers is setting up a Thai company to purchase the land. This holding structure offers more ownership rights than a leasehold structure.A local property law firm can set this up within a couple of weeks. As long as the foreigner complies with the law, this option offers a good degree of indirect ownership and control for purchasing land in Phuket Thailand.

The third option is the work with a Thai partner.

Land Titles in Thailand

As a buyer, you need to be aware of the various title deeds and land titles for property in Thailand to better understand what you are being offered. Land titles are the most common evidence to prove land ownership, rights of possession, and other interests in property. In Thailand, there are various types of land titles and each provides a different level of security for the owner.

Remember, the property title is proof of ownership; therefore the quality of the land title deed determines the fundamental security of your investment. For this to work when buying land for sale in Phuket, you should only consider a property that comes with a ChanoteNor Sor 3, or Nor Sor 3 Gor land title. These titles can be sold, leased, transferred, and used as mortgage collateral. They are the only titles over which can be registered for the right of ownership and or a lease to exist.
