At present, Thai law is more lenient in terms of the residence available for the foreigners, permitting the foreigners to take ownership in the apartment (condominium) unit up to 49 percent of the total aggregated area of the apartment. Therefore, it is not a hassle any longer if you wish to have a residential place of your own in Thailand.
It is such an easy step-by-step. Just pick the condominium which serves your lifestyle, prepare the necessary documents, and follow these steps.
Present your passport together with 1 copy (For the customer who experienced buying realty, the spelling of name and last name in Thai language must be identical to those written on the document used in all other realty buying.) and the down payment money at the amount as designated by the Project. For more information, please ask the sale representative at the Project.
