If Italy was so good , any reason why so many Italians try to come to Australia?

If you talk about Samui – which was the OP – then its not the same building.
 
  • Amphor in central Nathon is for business registration, work permits, and ID-cards.
  • Tessa Ban in southern Nathon issue building permissions, and house books etc.
  • Land Office south of Lipa Noi is for land and servitude registrations, and they issue land title deeds, not building permission or business registrations.
No sorry was talking about an island in koh chang area, i heard sooo much bad stuff about samui, like more chanotea issued as there is land on the island etc. That i would never touch that island.

being here for 20 years does not entitle you to break the law in the same way it does not back home. I know people here who bothered to do the proper paperwork and operate within the given law. I also know people like the ones who just got raided who were laughing at the guys doing things by the book and eventually they got done. 

 

Back home they throw the book at your for running a business without the proper framework so it seems strange to me that people come here and trample on the laws and think it is okay. Just because the Farang property sales guy tells you not to worry about nominee structure and licensing laws does not make it right.

 

Sorry you feel that it is time for you to leave after 20 years, I personally don't see it better in countries around Thailand and certainly not back home.

dupes?

How does that work? Do you mean they've signed forms which they don't understand? If so, why would they do that?

 

because they cannot read Thai?

 

The lawyer gives them the paperwork and says 'Sign this and everything will be all right. Trust me, I am a lawyer.'

Wife showed me a thai article about this she read . Some german had built a 7 bed villa at top of chaweng noi and was renting it out . Army etc turned up when was full of guests .

He said he paid money for the land, paid 800,000bht and was told everything ok no problem build away and he did. This was 18 months ago. Now I think he seemingly has zero paperwork for all this, the company was using nominees etc and hes going to either be saying bye to the villa or paying a lot to ok it.

But what struck me was if this guy was so smart and made his money from business before to build the villa then surely he would have the brains to check every detail here and hire the best lawyer etc before starting building ??

Fully agree. As a new arrival he probably listened to the wrong people for advise. Many did well building houses and starting businesses. But in many cases, what worked years ago will no longer pass and some of the advise I was given was just outright reckless and often there were no facts to back it up. 

Use common sense and start under the assumption that laws will eventually be enforced would be a great starting point before investing a Satang

Typical Farangs. Never fails to amaze and then later they go and whine about how Thailand is so unwelcoming and hostile towards their privileged white asses.

This is very common across all the islands and some parts of mainland in Thailand. So many fat white guys are co-owner of every other building and turned it into hotels for other fat white guys or backpacking beggers. Some even marry innocent Thai women just to stay here and do their filthy business. Thai people are just loosing their homes and opportunities to them. It's their country. They should get the money from tourism in their country.

Yawn.  Another neutered white millennial regurgitating white man bad memes from the internet.  So unbiased, so brave.  Michelle Pfeiffer and Hillary Swank are raising their "Fight Whitey" fists in solidarity.  You go, girl!  ✊  :clap2:

Can I assume as you have obviously done. 

 

Firstly, the land was owned by Thais who sold that land to the companies and they have no interest in it once they were paid.

 

Secondly, there is nothing stopping Thais from doing exactly the same.

 

Thirdly, quote "So many fat white guys are co-owner of every other building and turned it into hotels for other fat white guys or backpacking beggars."

 

Naturally you have proof that 50% of all the buildings are owned by in your words "So many fat white guys are co-owner of every other building and turned it into hotels for other fat white guys or backpacking beggars and you have complained to the governor's office and to the RTP.

 

Fourthly quote "Some even marry innocent Thai women just to stay here and do their filthy business." I don't think that many innocent Thai women would marry unknowingly, most Thai women I know are generally much smarter than that.

 

You seem to be a sad and angry person from what I can read in your post.

 

Ask any Thai woman if rather work in a hotel with air conditioning or out in the fields earning far less.
