Buy a house when married = no control over it?

You are buying a house for your wife.

 

End of story.

and your point is?  My wife is younger than me  and my daughter obviously a lot younger still.  Yes, the house will be theirs when I depart, that's called talking care of your family.

And what's the problem with posters pointing out the obvious that a house in Thailand doesn't belong to you? Personally, I didn't come here to play the savior and build houses in Isaan for other women. Plenty of stories about Westerners ending up shirtless. If my wife wants (3rd) house, she can buy it herself like she did before me.

 

The better question is if a Thai Family will take care of Farang if he needs to pay for hospital bills? If the house belonged to you this would not be an issue. Like this you are stuck at the mercy of Thai family and seeing how they are not even willing to help with retirement extensions I don't see how they will help if you get cancer 🙂

The more assets you have in your wife's name ... the more expendable you become. Only buy if it represents a small fraction of your wealth.

 

 

Anything less than 100% is a fraction.   What do you consider a "small fraction" when it comes to the purchase of a residence be it a house or condo?

I think what the poster below points out is the situation where the wife chooses to depart from you prior to your departure.

And why does no one mention divorce rates in Thailand? Everyone likes to mention rates back home at 50%. It's at 40% in Thailand and this is in a country where people shy away from divorce and women put up with multiple mia nois. Has there ever been some research done about Thai foreign divorces? I bet the number is over 80%.

But, but, their wife is different, totally trustworthy and would never do that.

When you are over 50, the likelihood that your wife is different is high.

Exactly, Johnny Foreigner that was a shelf stacker in Tesco and married for 20 years probably  only having one or two sexual encounters,  comes here with redundancy/retirement money and meets a young girl that makes him feel good and starts acting like a gangster or millionaire....

dosnt last long once the gold,  pick up and issan house is bought and money dried up. Sent it a thousand  times but yes of course won't happen to them their tirak is different

a usufruct gives you the right to use the land till u die... 

I was thinking of this if i ever bought a house with my thai partner but as others have said it is useless. If the thai or her family make your life hell, which they easily could, then you would not want to stay there. Your legal "rights" are immaterial.

I am thinking of building a room and a bathroom in the back of my GF's house. She has a house in Banglamung with lots of lands in the back. Her mother also has a house in Sisaket with lots of lands in the back. Her Father also has a huge land in Kolat? She told me I could build a house anywhere I like but I had to pay for it. I think Banglamung will be better.
