At the moment the only advantages I know of are:

  • Maybe not need a Residence Certificate, which can save some time and money (For me worked with the driver license)
  • Maybe can made it easier to open an bank account if you not have a work permit
     

Some have told, that you can have cheaper entrances on some parks with the Pink ID card (for which a yellow book is needed before). But this seems more difficult than a few years back.

There are still a lot of writers here, which not see any advantages in the yellow book.

Can it stop the wife from selling house or land?

You are thinking of the usufruct.

If you have a usufruct registered on the chanote then it cannot be sold or used as security for a loan.

You only have to have a Yellow Book if you are going to seek permanent residency, otherwise it is up to you  

That is wrong, you don't need a yellow book to apply for permanent residency at all

 

The main benefit of a yellow book is that it really is the document (in a different colour) that all Thai's recognize, it is a house register for you and it kills questions like name to use, address to use. This is very useful when you want to buy and register a car in your name
- Standard answer : No can do, this is simply because the people don't know what name and address to use. Give then the yellow tabien baan, easy

 

Second benefit: Master of the house hold (chau baan) can be in the yellow book = it's possible to register electricity, water etc for a property in your name so you control that. No more must be nice to the old girl friend / wife because she is chau baan and will turn off electricity and water if I kick her out

 

But most westerners on ThaiVisa say that yellow tabien baan is useless so maybe I am narrow minded

If the property is in her name,  it's hers to sell.
