🏢Condominium Act

There are two types of ownership:
1/Freehold ownership: Freehold means that a property can be owned in perpetuity. The owner has the right to sell or lease the property. As more overseas property purchaser increased in Thailand, demand of freehold land property raised and this ownership is more easy to resale to the market.


2/Leasehold ownership: Property can held by a Thai person or Thai company, non-Thai can purchase a property on the Thai side of the ownership quota via a lease, and the lease will be issued to the non-Thai purchaser of the unit for maximum 30 years on a renewable basis. It is a common practice in Thailand for developers offer leases of 30 years + 30 years + 30 years, totaling 90 years of leases for buyers.

According to the 1979 Thai Condominium Act, non-Thai Citizens can't own more than 49% of the sellable square meter space in condominium in Thailand. For example, let's say there is a condominium building project and offered 100 equally sized units; only 49 of those unit can be sold to non-Thai citizens while 51 of those units have to be owned by a Thai citizens or a Thai company.


📑Real Property and Off-plan Property

1/Real property generally purchase from the developer with existing completed project, all status could be inspection is the advantage. This kind of property can also buy from resale market, instantly use after transfer.


2/Off-plan property is project that purchase from developer that not yet completed, lower cost is the advantage and let buyer purchase their favorite project in advance, also more flexible on financial issue. Off-plan property can buy from resale market as same as real project.

Generally the off-plan property project in Bangkok Thailand, the developer will collect the amount 20-30% of the property as the first installment, the remains will be collected while the project completed and transfer. Oppositely, Real property project required to pay 100% at one but the advantaged as purchaser can site visit the project and avoid any lost.
