Real estate or property law in Thailand is the area of Thai law that governs the rights of use, possession and various forms of ownership of immovable property. In this article a brief introduction to the most common real estate laws in Thailand.
Section 1298. Real rights may be created only by the virtue of this Code or other laws.
The practical use of a right of servitude is that it could be registered as a 'right of way' (easement) over one or more neighboring land plots in case a land plot is surrounded by other land plots without having direct access to a public road. It secures access to the public road. The right of servitude in Thailand has a broader use and can put several kinds of burdens or restrictions on a neighboring parcel of land (such as the use of a neighbouring water well, or specifying private building restrictions).
