    FAQ

    Below you can find frequently asked questions from property buyers, including our replies.

    Can foreigners buy villas with land in Hua Hin?

    Yes, preferably the villa (physical structure) should be bought on a freehold basis, while the land is leased during a time period of 30 years.

    A good option is to include a clause in the contract stipulating your rights to renew the lease for an additional 30 years, consequently two times.

    Hence, the total leasehold period will be 90 years.

    Can I open a company to buy property in Hua Hin?

    Previously, it was common that foreigners opened local Thai companies, getting 49% of the stakes in that company, and appointing themselves as directors. This gave them the right to buy property under a Thai entity, hence getting freehold ownership of land.

    However, things have changed over the years and this has become an outdated practice. Buyers might have succeeded to acquire freehold ownership like this in the past, but the government and the DBD department do their utmost to prevent foreigners from opening companies with the sole purpose to buy property.

    As mentioned, a more common way is to own the house and lease the land during a 30+30+30 year leasehold period. It’s fully legal and registered at the Land Office.

    You should also consider hiring a solicitor, that can help you to input protective clauses in the sales and lease contracts.

    Can I get a local mortgage as a foreigner in Hua Hin?

    It’s rare that Thai banks grant foreigners property loans, even if some buyers manage to borrow against properties in their home countries. Some developers can also offer you financing.

    If you consider borrowing from a Thai bank, they normally have the following requirements:

    • You’re a (permanent) resident in Thailand
    • You’re working locally and can show proof of income and employment (normally at least 1 year)
    • You’re married to a Thai spouse, and can act as a guarantor

    How is the buying process for off-plan property?

    • First of all, you need to reserve the plot which normally costs THB 200,000
    • Find a solicitor and start preparing the contracts (developers often have standardized contracts)
    • Your solicitor will check the title and perform due diligence, for maximum protection
    • Before signing the contract, you pay a down payment of 20-30%
    • You pay in different instalments, to finance the construction of the property

    What are the benefits of buying off-plan property?

    Buying off-plan can be riskier compared to buying an established property, but it also brings a number of benefits. First of all, you buy the property several years before the construction is completed, hence, you can potentially enjoy a great price appreciation during these years.

    As you pay in installments, you can avoid putting a big lump sum on the table, and diversify your portfolio in the meantime.

    Developers sometimes offer guaranteed rental incomes, which means that you can enjoy good rental incomes, once the project is finished.

    What are the risks of buying off-plan in Hua Hin?

    The biggest risks are that the developer defaults, or delay the project over a lengthy period. This can be avoided by checking the track record of the developer, and if they launched other successful projects in the past.

    Another risk is that the property might not be according to your expectations, or to the previous plan. It’s difficult to make changes once the project is finished.

    Be sure to check if there are other projects or infrastructural investments planned in the area, to assure how these can affect rental incomes and capital appreciations.

    Looking at market cycles is also of importance, to confirm what price appreciation that you can expect during the construction.

    Why is Hua Hin interesting for real estate purchases?

    Hua Hin is a beautiful coastal city with around 65,000 inhabitants. It’s located merely 20 km away from Bangkok giving you the opportunity to reach Bangkok by car.

    It’s also famous for being tidier compared to places like Pattaya and the Royal Family frequently visits Hua Hin.

    Hua Hin’s property market is less affected by the foreign economic climate, as you have a big diversity of investors from different countries. Pattaya’s property market suffered much during the Ruble crisis, as mainly Chinese and Russians buy property in Pattaya.

    Many wealthy Thai nationals from Bangkok buy property in Hua Hin, to keep as weekend retreats. You’ll also find a bunch of Scandinavians, British, Americans, and other nationalities.

    Can I rent out my property in Hua Hin?

    Foreigners generally don’t have any issues to rent out property in Hua Hin. Just be careful if you plan to rent out on AirBNB.

    According to the Hotel Act (2004), you can only rent out your apartment for a minimum period of 30 days at a time. The boards and management of projects often stipulate their own rules as well.

    It’s important that you confirm what regulations apply to your specific project before making a big investment.

    Are there any investment and long term visas available in Thailand?

    Yes, the benefit of buying in Thailand is that you can apply for a long term investment visa.

    The visa is called ‘The Thai Investment Visa‘ and you can renew it on a yearly basis. You need to make an investment of, or deposit, at least THB 10 million (around USD 305,000), where the newly built condo needs to cost at least THB 3 million (USD 88,000).

    You can deposit your money, or invest, in any of the following asset classes:

    • Newly built condos (minimum THB 3 million)
    • Government or state-enterprise bonds
    • Deposit money into a Thai bank account

    If you’re above 50 years old, you also have the option to apply for a retirement visa, which is very popular among foreign retirees.

    You can also buy an Elite Card, even if this is less recommended in my view.
