A Foreigners Guide to Condominium Purchasing
Muay Thai, Pad Thai, Thai massage, and street food. Roof bars, street bars, street markets, and floating markets – a rich culture bathed in neon skylines made famous by modern movies. City of angels, the great city of immortals.
When asked to name somewhere exotic, Thailand springs to the lips of many. And nowhere in Thailand is more exotic than Bangkok.
Bangkok has everything for someone seeking to create a dream lifestyle; centuries-old history and local living surrounded by the bustle of a modern metropolis. High-tech convenience nestled beside the cart of a local street food vendor.
From trendy up-scale living amongst the “high-so” (Thai high society) of Thong Lor, to the laid-back, slower place of Ari. If you are seeking an investment, a holiday get-away, or a permanent change in lifestyle, Bangkok offers the choice to you, the would-be property owner.
There are many options when purchasing property in Thailand. Some options are more complex when looking at foreign ownership. Because of Bangkok’s metropolitan environment, we will focus on purchasing a condominium in this article.
We will explain legal ownership, property types, the buying and legal process, and highlight popular areas and developments that are available for foreign investors.
How Covid-19 Changed the Way We Travel
World travel changed over the course of 2020 – 21. People felt trapped and international travel restrictions made it almost impossible for people to just ‘get away’.
Many popular tourist destinations (Phuket, Pattaya, Chiang Mai) suffered and economies neared collapse. Bangkok felt the effects of this downturn, yet was in a unique position because it is not only a popular tourist destination but a central hub where people settle long-term for work, recreation, and lifestyle.
As travel restrictions ease and a sense of ‘normal’ returns in 2022, many people dedicate themselves to avoiding this situation again by looking at “long stay” vacations and lifestyle options. Bangkok is a perfect location for singles and families seeking to move for work and lifestyle.
How does the Bangkok property market look in 2022?
Bangkok’s property market slowed over the course of 2020 & 2021. The pandemic affected people’s income, household debt, and overall purchasing confidence. They postponed many development projects as companies consolidated and sought to sell existing properties with enticing promotions and discounts.
The end of 2021 has seen an upturn in buying confidence and there are signs of further recovery in the dawn of 2022. Though the condominium sector saw a decline in sales prices, it was not affected by oversupply.
Recent surveys by Thai property analysts predict that market prices will remain stable over the course of 2022 and property investments will grow as development companies relaunch postponed projects.
For people looking to buy in Bangkok, there is an opportunity to purchase properties at lower market prices or invest in fresh developments with incentives and discounts.
Essential Questions to ask before Purchasing
Before looking to invest in property, especially in a foreign country, it is important to ask a few questions. These questions help determine your motives, lifestyle choice, strategies, and budget.
If you are a seasoned property investor, you know there are many steps to take from thinking, “I want to buy a property”, to settlement and handover.
If you are looking to buy your first property, then you will need all the help you can get, especially in another country like Thailand. Don’t worry, there are professionals that can help make this easy for you.
“What is my purpose in buying?”
Are you looking for a holiday escape each year? Do you seek an investment property that generates income between your visits? Are you seeking to move permanently? Are you ready to move to paradise and live the life you dream of forever?
“What type of property am I looking to buy?”
There are many styles of property in Bangkok. You can buy a condominium (condo), an apartment, a townhouse, or even a house.
Each property type has its own level of ownership rights and clauses, which we will explore. We are looking at the popular choice of condominiums because they give you the greatest choice, are the easiest to buy, and provide the highest level of legal ownership.
“Do I want to buy an older condo, a new condo, or invest in new development and purchase off-plan?
This is an important question to ask when determining your budget and time frames.
“What is my budget?”
Few Thai banks offer property financing for foreigners. As a foreign investor, you will rely on cash, whether that is savings or equity in your property at home.
It is easy to dream big and overextend when you see what is available. You must have a realistic budget that you can stick to. Your budget will play a large part in deciding where you might live in Bangkok.
“Do I Need the Help of a Real Estate Agent and Property Lawyer?”
Yes! No matter your experience, remember you are looking to buy property in a country with different laws, regulations, and cultures.
In fact, we will break down the services of these professionals before we dive into the buying and legal process. No matter the complexity, once you understand how an agent and lawyer can help you, you will enter the Bangkok property market with confidence.
Your Real Estate Agent
Reputation and “keeping face” are important in Thai culture. A real estate agent will be your language and cultural liaison.
A knowledgeable agent knows the best existing property opportunities and upcoming developments. They will have a diverse network across the city.
A reputable agent works in the best interest of you and the seller.
An efficient agent saves you time and money.
They will look at properties you’ve researched, ask the right questions, cut properties or offer unlisted alternatives.
Your agent negotiates viewings, and transportation, and can give a history of buildings, developers, managers, and areas. In Bangkok, there are agents who create property ‘tour’ packages for potential investors.
They will translate with sellers to help negotiate prices and conditions of purchase.
Because Bangkok is a diverse, urban jungle, your agent will be worth their weight in silver.
Your Property Lawyer (Conveyancer)
If your real estate agent is worth silver, then your lawyer is worth gold.
A trusted law firm will save you time, prevent frustration, and help you avoid potential financial loss or litigation. They are the experts.
A reputable law firm remains impartial through the law while protecting your interests.
What Does Your Lawyer Do?
During the buying process, they will:
- Investigate under due diligence.
This involves researching the background and history of sellers, development companies, buildings, and potential legal complications with any of the above.
- Conduct Title Searches.
This includes confirming title details match registered Land Office records; that the seller legally owns the property and is entitled to sell; and there are no existing mortgages, liens, debts, or legal proceedings held against the property.
- Review contracts (Purchase & Sales Agreement) to make sure details are correct and fair for the seller and the buyer.
Unlike contracts in Western culture, which are dry, detailed, and list numbers, many contractual agreements in Thailand focus on the relationship between buyer and seller. Think of it as the “Gentleman’s Agreement” or “Handshake deal”.
Unfortunately, this means they may omit several important conditions or clauses. Your property lawyer will translate and recommend important conditions you should include to protect yourself.
- Reconcile transfer and payment of funds.
In any property transaction, the most important aspect is money. We will dissect this further, but your lawyer will confirm what monies are due (including registration, default clauses, and fees); which party pays the money and fees; and how funds are to be paid (payment schedules).
Your lawyer will make sure that all payments and time frames are fair for both parties and scrutinize any hidden or ongoing costs with you.
- Attend settlement and registration of title at the Land Office.
Your lawyer will give and receive all relevant documents at the time of settlement. They can then act as your liaison with the Thailand Land Office to register all documents and pay the fees and taxes as per your contract.
- Help protect your assets.
A trusted Legal firm can help you look to the future. What happens in the worst-case scenario of your passing?
We often create a will in our home country to make sure our estate is secure in the event of death. Thailand does not recognize foreign wills and can be contested in Court.
Thai lawyers can help draft a Will that is recognized in Thailand. Though not part of the buying process, it is an important aspect that is often overlooked when we think of protecting assets and providing for our spouses or dependents.
You have now asked yourself some important questions and have a better understanding of the help that is available to you.
Let’s look at the buying and legal process of acquiring your new dream condo and show you some of the best buys available.
How Can I Legally Own Property in Thailand?
It is important to understand the different levels of property ownership available to foreign investors. Different ownership types determine the legal process and security of your purchase, especially in a diverse city like Bangkok.
Freehold – Foreigners can hold a freehold title in their own name. The Thai Land Office issues a title deed similar to a strata title and freehold property can be used as collateral in Thailand.
Condominiums offer freehold (or leasehold) titles and are the easiest and most popular way for a foreigner to invest in Thai property.
Leasehold – A foreigner can own a physical structure (property) as a Superficie or Usufruct entity, but the land it lives on is owned by a Thai national or Thai Limited company.
They then lease the land for up to 30 years, with a possibility to extend it for up to 90 years.
During the term of the lease, the property owner maintains the structures and land.
The lease is registered with the Thai Land Office and if the land is sold during this term, the new land owner takes over the lease.
It pays to be aware of leasehold style ownership in Bangkok. Areas noted as holiday destinations will often sell as leasehold as they rely on rental returns. You will find many long-term residences are sold as freehold.
Thai Limited Company – Land and structures can be owned through a Thai Limited company.
A foreigner can be a shareholder in the company, but the company must have at least two Thai National shareholders who hold a majority share (51%).
The company then leases the land as above.
What Types of Property Can I Buy?
Our focus is on purchasing a condominium, but we will also summarise property types available to buy in Bangkok.
Condominium – A condominium is defined as a building featuring privately owned property and common property. The owners of condominiums own the land through a Juristic person of condominium. (The Condominium Act – The Commonly Owned Housing Act of 2522).
In layman’s terms, a “condo” is a living space (unit) that is part of a larger complex. The owner holds legal freehold title over the private residence and a joint interest in common areas of the property. Under Thai law, only 49% of any complex can be owned by foreigners. It is important to be aware of this when looking at potentials as there have been cases where someone has paid a deposit, only to find they fall outside the percentage of available ownership.
In Bangkok (and other areas of Thailand), you may hear the term “low-end” condo. This does not reflect quality but can be based on property size or location.
These condos are sometimes smaller in overall size (Studio or 1-bedroom) and not intended for family use. They are still furnished with modern appliances and comforts, and may still contain modern facilities and security.
“Low-end” condos can offer remarkable market value for singles, couples, remote workers, and those who are under budget constraints or want to “test the waters” of Thai property.
Apartment – An “apartment” is a condominium that cannot be owned under freehold title by a foreigner. Apartments sell as leasehold only and fall under the terms of Thailand’s 30-year leasing regulations.
Keep an eye out for this when looking at potential properties in Bangkok.
On the surface, condos and apartments are the same. Same living space, same fees, and common area obligations. You will enjoy the same facilities and comforts, but you will not own your property outright.
Luxury Freehold & Penthouse Condominiums – A freehold condominium catering to buyers who have an excess of capital to invest and seek the best of the best. You will find many condos of this class in areas like Sukhumvit, Silom, and Asoke.
Luxury condominiums offer a greater choice of style and appearance. Some properties resemble a villa, while others, luxury penthouses; complete with a rooftop garden, terrace, and private pool.
As part of a complex, these luxury condos offer high-end common area facilities, such as fitness centers, pools, restaurants, and grocers. They will use first-class management teams and services.
Developers may also offer enticing rental guarantees for the investor.
Villa – Villas are classified as a house, so will fall under the same ownership and purchase laws as House & Land.
You will not find an excess of villas in Bangkok. Villas are more common in beachfront areas like Phuket and Pattaya.
Townhouse – A terraced structure with two or more stories. The Thai variation is called a “shop house” because they have a shop on the ground floor, with living quarters on the upper floors.
Townhouses and Shop houses are common in Thailand. You will often see this style in older residential areas of Bangkok.
For a foreigner with a Thai spouse who wants to be in the middle of it all, these properties are appealing. With a smaller land footprint, taxes are lower while offering spacious living conditions and an opportunity to generate income from the shop space if prepared to form a Thai Company.
House & Land – It is possible to own a house in Thailand, but the process is more involved.
Under Thai law, a foreigner cannot own land. Any structure built is part of the ‘land’.
Don’t let this deter you. There are several ways you can build your home and own it. The three most common are:
- to lease the land for up to 30 years as a person, Superficies, or Usufruct.
- to be married to a Thai National who can own the land.
- to form a Thai Limited company in which you operate a genuine business.
In each of these cases, you will not own the land you build on, but you will own your house.
For house & land, you will look outside the central metro areas of Bangkok. But if you are looking to have more space for the kids and pets, or want to build a home in a quieter area, it is possible, and the right legal help will make it simple.
Should you buy an existing, new, or off-plan condo?
You can find well-priced condominiums in Bangkok, but it is a modern city with modern amenities and modern price tags. Newly completed condos offer the latest styles and furnishing, so they sell at a premium price. If you are under budget constraints, then you might look at older pre-owned condos.
That said, with development projects starting again, off-the-plan purchases are a viable option in Bangkok. Many projects are offering competitive rates to boost foreign investment and if you are not in a hurry to move, construction time and schedules give you time to save and increase your budget.
Pre-owned – Pre-owned condominiums give you a variety of choices and locations. Because they are not brand new, you will find a condo that suits your budget. Existing condos will have an established management team and Juristic person.
Newly completed – The joy of being the first person to walk through the door. A newly completed condominium will have appliances and furnishing of a more modern design.
Developers are responsible by law for any defects or structural repairs needed in the first five years of completion. This offers a level of security for your purchase.
Off-the-plan – There are risks and advantages to buying off-plan in a fresh development.
An off-plan project will often have an extended payment schedule with the last payment due at the time of completion. This allows buyers time to save.
Developers seek investment in their projects, so may offer competitive purchase prices. That said, because developers are working for a budget, you may find it does not incline them to negotiate the price.
49% of condominiums are allocated for foreign ownership. If buying off-plan, you know you are eligible to buy.
A common risk is, “What if the project doesn’t complete?”
It is paramount to seek legal advice before signing an off-plan contract. Your lawyer will make sure that all relevant conditions are in place should the developer (or you) default as per the contract.
Another thing to be aware of is furnishing. New developments will have a show unit. But not all units include furniture and appliances. It is important to confirm if they include furnishings in your contract price, or if this will be an extra cost.
How Do I Buy a Condo in Bangkok?
Do your homework
You must research.
There is a wealth of knowledge on the internet. Conducting your own research will highlight areas, price ranges, developers, and attractions. It will give you a visual of what is available in the market right now.
With keyword searches (nature, markets, transport, education, nightlife, dining), you can discover areas that offer what you want.
During this phase, keep in mind the questions you asked in the beginning. Your answers will help narrow down search queries and keep things realistic.
You should not only be aware of places you might buy but also other development plans. This might include potential building developments or infrastructure upgrades. This is important in a place like Bangkok which is always being upgraded.
Here are some popular real estate sites to help get you started:
- Siam Real Estate – Siam Real Estate has all the latest offerings.
- FazWaz – FazWaz is a great resource for new and existing developments.
We will cover some popular areas, their highlights, and attractions below.
Find your Real Estate Agent
Once you know potential properties, enlist the help of your first professional.
Your agent will review your research, offer suggestions, organize viewings, and transportation, and provide a history of buildings, developers, managers, and areas.
They will translate with sellers to help negotiate the price and conditions of purchase.
When you have found your slice of Thailand and are ready to sign a contract… do NOT sign the dotted line.
It is time to find your second professional.
Your Property Lawyer (Conveyancer)
From the above, you have a good understanding of what your lawyer will do for you.
As a Thai Law expert, they will now conduct due diligence and title searches. They will review your contract to make sure it benefits both the buyer and the seller; and include, amend, or remove relevant conditions or clauses.
Your lawyer will confirm payment schedules and how funds will be disbursed at settlement. When it is time, they will attend settlement and register your new title with the local Thai Land Office.
A contract review is a top priority if you are looking to buy off-plan.
Pay your deposit and sign the contract
Before paying any money, be aware that as a foreign investor, you must present evidence that your purchase funds originate from outside Thailand.
All funds must be in foreign currency and show a clear paper trail of where the funds come from (withdrawal from the originating bank), the purpose of the funds (purchase of condominium), and proof of currency conversion in the recipient Thai Bank account (Foreign Exchange Form).
Your contract will list the amounts and time frames for all payments. This will include the deposit, the balance of purchase, applicable Government fees & taxes, as well as who is responsible for any payments.
A summary of your payment schedule
- Deposit: A deposit is paid before finalizing the contract. It is 10-15% of the purchase price but can sometimes be as high as 25%.
- Balance: The purchase balance is paid at the time of settlement unless otherwise specified in the payment schedule.
When purchasing off-plan, the payment schedule may differ with several payments made at certain stages of construction.
- Government Fees: Government fees are paid when documents are registered with the Thai Land Office. The fees depend on property value.
There are 3 types of value given to a property when calculating Government fees and taxes:
- Registered Value (Purchase price registered with the Land Office).
- Assessed Value (property value assessed by the Land Office).
- Market Value (often determined by real estates and current market trends).
Transfer fee: 2% of the registered value of the property.
Stamp Duty: 0.5% of registered value. Only payable if exempt from business tax.
Withholding tax: 1% of the appraised value or registered sale value of the property (whichever is higher and if the seller is a company). If the seller is an individual, withholding tax calculates at a progressive rate based on the appraisal value of the property.
Business tax*: 3.3% of the appraised value or registered sale value of the property (whichever is higher). This applies to both individuals and companies.
* This tax is payable if the property has been owned for less than 5 years as is often the case in fresh developments.
- CAM (common area management) Fees & Sinking Fund.
When buying a condominium, you will be liable for these ongoing fees.
CAM fees are paid by all owners and calculated per sqm of ownership. CAM fees cover repairs & maintenance of common areas, paying on-site staff, and government fees that are handled by the complex juristic entity (manager).
CAM fees are paid monthly and can change to meet the requirements of the building. This requires a vote by the governing body (of which you are a part) or juristic entities.
All owners contribute to the Sinking Fund, which is used for major building repairs or emergencies.
Your property lawyer will attend settlement for you. Final documents are signed, funds disbursed and keys handed over.
Before settlement can occur with completed off-plan development, the Thai Government & Environmental departments conduct assessments before issuing the new title.
Registration of Title
After settlement, all documents need to be registered at the local Thai Land Office.
Your lawyer will handle the registration and payment of all applicable fees.
Who pays what fees?
