The new "land tax" is going to catch a lot of people out, they have been to my house twice in the past month as they made a mistake and wanted to charge tax on half the land, this tax is just gaining momentum now...................

Where is your house located?

All land has some restrictions, it is up to the buyer to research what he is buying to know what they are.  Same anywhere.

True, but the point is that the locals knew only they could use it for tourism but sold it to outsiders, then the locals complained about the resorts !

It begs the question, how come 149 illegally built hotels were allowed to be erected undetected, i would sack the all the building inspectors and whom ever is incharge on making sure these thing doesn't happen...

That would have been my question too....“The Royal Forest Department had reported up to 29 resorts with 149 buildings have encroached on forest land and had filed charges against them at the Chiang Mai provincial court early this year,” ???? UNDETECTED ?????

Odd “the land was later declared national forest“ as in retroactively and if you buy land from a local who has the right to develop it for tourism don’t you become the new local with the right to,,,,just asking.

No.  You buy land and get nothing because it is illegal for you to own land.

 

Where in the world does land purchase make you a local?  Certainly not most places.

 

Where did you come from?

What about the illegal Hotels that were investigated last year?  What happened?  These Condominiums were renting as hotels and ordered to halt renting or be de constructed.  Haven't heard of any dismantling here in Hua Hin and there were many in operation.

Not that unusual. The Forestry Department is still drawing lines on maps that they think should be theirs without investigating the current titles. Plus with their large scale mapping a pencil line can be 400 metres wide. They do not really know what is their land as the titles were issued without their knowledge.

But the locals had absolutely no qualms about selling the land even though they knew of the restrictions.

 

caveat emptor, applies the world over.

And once gone, they will be replaced by plastic sheet greenhouses covering the hillsides.  Just like the rest of Mon Chaem & surrounding hill tribe villages.
