On the way to buy Land

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

i am on the way to buy land for my Thai wife. Well, that land have fully Chanode deed, that´s 100% fact. But i´m just wondering, that land don´t show any chanode mark. However,  can we build  a perimeter wall without that chanode mark? Or better we should not do that? How long does the land office need to do the chanode mark, like i said.....land already have chanode deed.

 

Regards

Ron

As above.. Get Land department out to re-measure and place chanote markers. There might be some there already but buried !!

Make sure neighbors of any bordering land are present, so they can witness the border arrangement.

Then build your wall, but make sure it's just on your side of the boundary.

It will take as long as it takes but gets quicker the more you pay :) 5000 baht will get it done pretty fast...

And just because I spent some interesting time researching last week.. Theres currently a scammer trying to steal control of a company and sell the land its holding from out under the actual buyer and moral owner of the land. 

 

If the plot you considering acting on is in doi saket with property on it, you could PM me.

You should get the land office to measure and mark the land.   Most prices are based on size and you only know the correct size from a recent measurement.

 

Much better to build the wall after you get it marked by the land office.  

 

IF you found no numbered land office markers to verify, be very careful that the land you are buying is the one you have looked at and think you are buying.  Somebody knowledgable with land office maps should help you.

I seem to remember a few years ago the government was "cracking down" on non Thais buying land via their wives, or through companies.

Has that changed?

I don't know if it has changed, but I paid for land for my wife in Saraphi a few years ago. My wife went to the land office with the seller, I went to the gym. My wife called, said I had to go to the land office because they wanted to see me. I was baffled really because the land was going to be in my wife's name and my name was nowhere on any paperwork. I went, the official never looked at me, not once, asked my wife if I was aware that I couldn't own it or have any claim on it. She asked me, I said that I was aware of that and they went ahead with the deal. As an aside, the tax was paid by the seller. Apparently that is traditional. We got a good deal on the land so I asked my wife if we shouldn't pay 50% at least. Her reply was in the negative.

No it hasn`t changed. At most times the authorities will turn a blind eye in situations like these, but get into any problems, Thai wife decides to shit on her Farlang husband from a great height, Thai wife dies, police decide to have another purge or neighbour disputes and then the Farlang has no jurisdiction or legal rights over any of it and it fact still has no jurisdiction or legal rights over the land anyway. He has to let his Thai wife deal with everything.

 

I would never invest in anything whereas others stand to benefit more then me. It`s like playing a game of bluff with a crap hand. All I can say to the OP is, think again, but doubt he will listen, they never do.

To the OP :   read and memorize this post !   not only regarding size,  but also preventing big problems

with the surrrounding land owners.  the neighboring owners are notified of the date of measuring.

Of course you , wife, and hopefully some other relatives of hers will aslo be present to witness. 

One more suggestion:   no need to argue with neighbors.  smile and say :  the land office will show where

the boundaries are.

If you have not already bought the land........make a contract contingent on the land size being at least

what is shown on the chanote.   Give deposit,  and wait for measurement

Why they have to be witness.....like i wrote chanode already done. Like i know, neighbors have to be witness only if chanode not yet done.

Sound advice to wait until the chanote markers are in place, A relative put up a new fence along the paddy wall on some land my wife was in the process of buying. Turns out when the land is measured and the chanote markers in place the fence runs half a metre inside the boundry line.

Not an issue for anybody really, as currently grassland, but at some stage my wife says he has said he will move the fence to match the chanote markers. Looked like a cow had mistimed a jump and levelled some of it recently so maybe not too long before it is moved. :smile:

My advice, let your wife deal with it all. When the land office came to do the chanote measurement I stayed well away. After they left I got a quick guided tour with full explanation. From buying to confirmation measuring and new markers placed about 3 months.
