Buy condo in foreigner name ONLY even when married ?


Recommended Posts

hola boys, can someone tell me if it's easy to buy a new condo and put only a foreigner name on the documents, even when married to a Thai ?

do they even ask if you are married or any documents ?

You can put condo in sole or both names. My advice from my experience is put it in your name only. I remember so clearly sitting in the lawyer's office in Sathorn in December 2009 when signing power o

With the exception of anything you own prior to marriage is my understanding.

I have 2 condos in my name, which I bought after marriage.

As long as the quota for foreigners is sufficient  there is no need to include anyone but yourself. If you have concerns ensure a Thai will is made specifically stating what is to happen with the unit in case of your demise. You may want to  see about registering that Will.

They do ask, and if you're married you need your spouse's consent for the purchase and for selling the property later on. As I'm not married I told the land office official I'm single and they didn't ask for proof, so I guess you can say you're single even if you're not...

That applies to Thai nationals as well. 

The above is from personal experience in 2 different land office in different provinces

Hi - Not sure if you are aware or not, but you should have a "Tor-Tor Sam" for any money you you put in to a Foreign Name and Held Condo.  Hopefully I am just overstating the obvious, but a Tor-Tor Sam is a verification of the Money transferred into Thailand to buy the Condo is on the Up and Up - Having this established up front will save many headaches on the back end if there is one.  Good Luck - G

the question you really want to ask is "What is the process during a divorce in Thailand to determine my assets?"
