As a foreigner can own a house here, can they also get the house book in their name? This is not referring to condos, houses only.  What would be the procedure to do so?

As you are  no doubt aware you cannot own the land that the house sits on.

Assuming that you can obtain official documentation which states that you own the house -then you can  apply for a house book at your local Amphur.

Since you are not Thai then you will be issued with a Yellow book.

The benefits of having such a book are very limited

Wow. That's news to me.

 

It looks like Thailand is opening up. Good news for Farang in Isaan.

Understand the House book is not proof of ownership, only a registration of the allocated address and a record of people living at that address.

 

A foreigner cannot be named in a Blue House book, unless he has PR status.

Foreigners can obtain and be named in a Yellow House book.

 

Whether you could be described as the 'House Master' (Jao Baan) in a book depends on the circumstances. Usually you would be described as a 'a dweller' (Poo Assai)

OP has commenced with an incorrect or misleading premise. A farang can own a house here. The farang cannot own the land it sits on.

He asked about being named in a Tabien Baan, which is totally separate to ownership of house or land.

A foreigner can be named in a yellow version of the blue Tabian Baan only.

 

You need to apply at your local Amphoe. They will tell you what they require.

He said " As a foreigner can own a house here". What part of that statement don't you understand?

And?

A foreigner can own a house in Thailand.

A Blue Tabien Baan will be issued for the house address, but the foreigner can't be named in it.

The foreigner can obtain a Yellow house book though, in which he can be named.

If you lease land, you can own the house you build on it.
The fact that you cannot own land does not mean that you cannot own a house.

How bizarre is that?

 

All they have to do is lock the front gate

And they do..on many an occasion.
