It seems here in Thailand that it is the norm that real estate sales go through land brokers that (in our experience) lie through their teeth about ownership of the land.
For example, we were looking at a block close to ours, we met the owner and after some enquiries found out he didn't own the land but was trying to middleman the sale.
Why do they lie? My wife tells me this is quite normal in Thailand and in fact is recognized in the courts!
Anyone know about this land brokerage system in Thailand?
