Minister Apisak Tantivorawong – 50 year leases likely for foreigners

Minister Apisak Tantivorawong – 50 year leases likely for foreigners

The Finance Ministry is considering amending laws to allow foreigners to buy properties through leasehold, according to minister Apisak Tantivorawong. Currently, foreigners cannot own land in the kingdom.They can only buy condominium units up to 49% of total sellable space in a project.  Foreign businesses with Board of Investment privileges or wealthy investors who agree to commit a certain sum can enter into 30-year leases, with the option for one 30-year renewal. “If we can amend the leasing law to support leasehold, foreigners can lease Thai real estate for a long term, possibly up to 50 years, and sell the rights,” Mr Apisak said on Friday. Allowing them to lease properties for a long term and to sell the leasehold rights will give them a sense of ownership. Once the leasehold ends,  the property remains in Thai hands, he added. “We’re studying the possibility and the chances are high that related laws can be amended to that effect. If we can do that, we can expect another property boom [a first after the pre-1997 period]. “Allowing leasehold will unleash demand from around the world. It will also change the structure of the property market in which foreigners will become customers alongside Thais,” he said. Real estate is a crucial sector in the Thai economy as it is closely linked to other sectors — from construction […]

Albatros Properties - Condo Market Turnaround

Thailand Condo Market Turnaround

Thailand’s condo market has begun to recover and an increase in foreign demand is helping lead the turnaround, shows new research from Plus Property. Having witnessed the market shift first hand, more Thai developers are changing their tactics and holding road shows abroad to tap into this demand. Foreign buyers are attracted to Thailand because of low prices, good rates of return when compared to neighbouring countries, the central location within ASEAN, and quality after-sale services. “Amidst the economic uncertainties and the high household debt level during the past few years, developers have shifted their focus more toward the mid- and high-income segments. Developers have also expanded into foreign markets to attract purchases by foreigners and foreign investors, both of which currently pay significant interest in properties in Thailand because of its geographical advantages,” says Anukul Ratpitaksanti, Managing Director of Plus Property.   Price has also played an important role in this trend. Thailand’s central business district areas are 5-times cheaper than that of Hong Kong and 2-times lower than that of Singapore despite having similar or in some cases better features. “Thailand’s condominiums, especially those in Bangkok, have significantly lower prices than units in Hong Kong or Singapore and have good rates of return when leased and resold.
