My Thai Home
A foreigner living in Thailand cannot own land. Therefore that pretty much means, as far as I am concerned, one cannot own a home. There is a way that a foreigner can lease the land that a house is built on from a Thai citizen for 30 years, but buy the house. Some are able to put the land in a Thai wifes name. Hmmm! It seems to me many bad things can come of this and so I choose to rent.
I was really fortunate in finding a beautiful rental home. It needed some work and I did put some money into it, but it is so much cheaper than renting in the west.
