Indeed, property in Thailand has shown significant increase in value over the past few years, although there are some significant risks too.

As for the ins and out of how to buy property, several questions can arise:

  • Can I own Thai property outright?
  • Do I have to put it in the name of my Thai wife?
  • Should I put it in the name of a company?
  • How do I find a good property?
  • What about the legal aspects?
  • What is the procedure to transfer the title deed?
  • Is there escrow in Thailand?
  • What contract do I use?
  • What return can I expect on my investment?
  • What are the risks?
  • What if I die, can I leave it to my children?
