How to obtain a building permit in Thailand in a foreigner's name?
is it possible to have a building permit in foreign name? i am building a house on koh jum, krabi. the local or bor tor has refused to issue a building permit in my name, i have a land lease agreement with superficies renewable for 30 years. he says a building permit can only be issued in a thai persons name, what can i do?
A right of superficies is generally not easy to get registered in thailand as a foreigner. When you have it registered you already automatically obtain ownership of anything on the land. Still it is better to also have your name on the building permit. For the change of name on a building permit check referecen link below.
