Building A House In Isaan

Recommended Posts

Just wondering is permission to build a house required in Thailand?

 

Or if I own/lease the land can I build whatever I want on it without consulting/paying the authorities?

Some years ago it was easy and you could build whatever you want.

Now the things have changed and you need to give some papers to your local office in the village\city 

BEFORE to start to build. (They want a map for the land and the house, distance from the neighbours, the wires connections for water, electricity and waste water and toilets evacuations etc, the best thing imo is to ask to an architect to prepare all the stuff for you, around 5000 to 10000 bhts depend of the size of the house)

The advice you are getting is good, it really comes down to what materials and labor you buy. Our agreement with our contractor was for a fixed labor amount, and then we bought all the materials. I do not recommend building a house paying "by the day", take a look at a video/slideshow I made of ours in 2008. This is a bit larger than what you are looking to do, but our total cost for everything was less than 1 million baht. Feel free to PM me for any details you would like to know about. Enjoy...we did and are!

 

Best of luck

What an awesome video. Thanks for sharing.

Go to your local goverment land office,to see if you live in or outside the boundary,depends on how to build.
Inside,you have restrictions and have to submit professionally signed drawings and have them passed(15,000thb)
Mandatory connections to water and electricity.Materials,colour and house orientation.
Outside:Please youself

If you haven't done this yet be wise and have an expert look at the land chanote and tell you if building on the land is ok for a live in house, I know folks who built on agri land and couldn't get elect hookup.  Sure you can build a farm use structure on some but not to live in.  Many types of chanotes with many restrictions, don't rely on your wife's knowledge solely.

Sorry mate you are not exactly correct, in this village, in fact within 100 meters of me there are 3 new houses being built.

I know for a fact 2 of them have no permissions what so ever.

Outside the city boundaries anything goes here in Issan.

Yes we have built recently

 

Have you ever been to rural Isaan?

 

There are no requirements for anything.

 

You thought wrong!

We went to Ampur and asked what we could do or not do on our farmland, and they replied we could do anything we wanted. No restrictions on no chanote land. Por bor something is the title. 

 

I guess it is different from district and village what the rules is. The only thing we have to do to get electric, is to have a qualified toilet by healt government, and then we can have a house number and blue book. When I say we, I ment my girl friend 😁

Ok that was probably a local ''law'' 

it was not in Issan but in a small village at 50 kms from Chiang Rai

and even the house builder, which have had build half of the houses of the village

was surprised by the new requirement. It was 4 years ago and no way to have the

connection to the electricity and water, and the regsitration of the adress house

without the right papers.
