Buying Property in Pattaya
Pattaya has found itself at the forefront of the Thai property market, with millions of people contemplating the notion of purchasing a property in this perpetual warm and sunny climate. The combination of a dream-like tropical environment alongside a dynamic real estate market has seen Pattaya in particular emerge with one of the most attractive profiles anywhere in South East Asia.
One of the primary reasons for this explosive growth is the tourism market in Pattaya has mushroomed exponentially, with many visitors choosing to spend their vacation time here on a more regular basis. Pattaya is the closest international destination from the new Suvarnabhumi Airport, conveniently reached in a mere hour and forty five minutes by road, making it an attractive weekend escape for Bangkok residents, both foreign and Thai. Property prices have not surpassed inflation as volume has risen commensurate with market demands. This makes Pattaya one of the more shrewd investment decisions in this part of the world.
The attraction of owning a primary or secondary property are self-evident to those who have spotted the investment opportunity that owning a condo or house in Pattaya provides.

Pattaya Property HOW-TO Guide
Understanding EIA for buying a Condo in Pattaya
If you are interested in purchasing a condo in Pattaya then there are a number of things that are worth keeping in mind. Reading the following guide should help you to understand a little better the finer points of the local property market.
The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a measure of the impact that each particular development has on the environment. When looking to buy a Pattaya condo it is essential that concept is understood as it will help you to find the very best value for money. Not only that, but it will help you to avoid most of the potential problems that are associated with buying a home that fails to meet the right standards.
Must all condos pass the EIA inspection?
he EIA can be used for all developments, but there are a few types that legally have to pass this assessment before the plans for building them are authorized. Some of these include:
What are the risks that are associated with buying a home that is not EIA certified?
- Buildings that are more than 23 meters in height
- Buildings that cover more than 10,000 square meters
- Buildings that are located close to lakes, rivers, natural parks or historical sites
If the home does not conform to any of the above, then not having any EIA certification will not have a huge impact on the ownership of the home. Still, it’s always a good idea to make sure that by the time you buy the home, you have understood all the implications of doing so, even the environmental ones.
If you buy a condo in Pattaya that is supposed to pass the EIA and it turns out that it has not, there are a number of consequences you might have to live with. For instance, you may be required to make the necessary changes to the condo in order to make it conform to the EIA. This might turn out to be very expensive.
Always watch out for this
This means that when you are looking for a Pattaya condo for sale, you should always try to make sure that it meets the EIA standards. Usually this means finding out if the condo you are looking at should legally pass the EIA. If it does, then demand to see the documentation that show that it has. Once you are satisfied, you can then buy the condo without fear of issues around EIA.
If you need more information
Buying a Pattaya condo from a high quality realtor make so much sense as they will have already made sure that the above has all been taken care of.
It is still important to understand the legal applications and implications of the EIA so that you don’t get caught out later on. If you are in doubt about anything, you can find more information about this concept from a number of sources. These include from the realtor you are buying from or the relevant ministry department.

Legal process for buying a condo in Pattaya
It is essential that as a foreigner that you know and understand the correct legal process for acquiring a property in Thailand.
To help protect our clients we prefer to sit down and discuss the entire buying and legal process before we start selecting any property options for you.
Review of Contracts
The first step after you have decided on your dream property is to set about reserving the unit. In most cases this will be done by a small deposit, holding the unit and discussed price in your name. The Developer will then prepare the contracts with you.
Thailand Property Experts want to protect your interest and highly recommend reviewing the terms and conditions together with you. If you also would like to have a lawyer or solicitor to review the contract we can always advise you to reliable lawyers here in Pattaya.
Buying a Condo in Thai Company Name
Can a foreigner buy a condo 100% freehold basis in their name in Thailand?
The most common question asked by buyers interested in buying property in Thailand is, “Do I have to form a Thai company in order to own freehold property?’ And the answer would be “No” it is now possible for foreigners to buy condominiums 100% freehold basis in their own names.
How does it work and are there any restrictions?
The one major restriction for the developer of condominiums is that they are only able to sell a maximum of 49% of the available units to foreigners; the other 51% can only be sold to Thai nationals. When considering which condominium project to buy into, it is important to ensure that the 49% allocation for foreigners has not been reached yet if you choose to only buy foreign owned.
So why do some foreigners choose to buy in Thai Company?
In case of some developments, developers offer better prices and payment terms than they offer to foreigners. Making it more attractive to buy as a Thai Company.
The main question would be is it safe to buy property in Thai company?
There is a massive gulf between the theory and what actually happens in practice. Despite all opinions and ongoing discussions, Yes it is safe.
“Every day foreigners are buying real estate by forming Thai Companies of which they own 49% of the shares, with the remaining 51% being owned by nominee shareholders who are Thai citizens.”
“No one has ever heard of any foreigner who lost their property as a result of buying it via Thai company!”
Although foreigners can only hold 49% of the shares in a Thai company, they are able to be the sole director with up to 100% of the voting rights through their holding preference shares. This would make it impossible for anyone other than the foreign owner to make any decision affecting the company. In addition, the foreigner usually keeps hold of the share certificates for all of the nominee shareholders.
This situation leaves the nominee shareholders without the means to take any actions affecting the company without the consent of the foreign shareholder who controls the certificates.
Another layer of protection can be added by asking the nominee shareholders to sign documents agreeing to sell their shares for a token amount to an unnamed person. With such a document, the foreigner would be able to fill in the date and details of the new shareholder at some future point in time. Also you will be protected under the World Trade Organization. So international laws will apply to your company.
When you choose to buy in Thai Company it is still 100% Freehold, so you can still put this company in your will-of-testament to your loved ones. Setting up a Thai company is a simple procedure which will take you around one hour at a Thai law firm. Most will set up such a company for you for a sum of around THB 35,000 (plus 7% VAT). There will then be an annual recurring cost of around THB 15,000 (plus 7% VAT) to keep the company active and to take care of all the technicalities, including the required submission of a set of annual accounts.
What if I want to sell the property that I bought in Thai Company?
In practice a property that is bought foreign owned will sell much easier than property bought in Thai Company. An advantage in selling Thai company owned property is that you do not have to go to the land office to pay taxes. You just use a lawyer to change the director and the buyer can pay any way you would like. The law firm will charge around THB 10,000 (plus 7% VAT) for changing the director of you Thai company.
If selling your Foreign owned property a fee of two percent will be charged based on the value of the property transferred as appraised by the land office regardless of actual price.
