Thai legal right of - and servitude Laws
Servitude as a legal property right is governed by the sections 1387 to 1401 civil and commercial code. 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 or parcels of land (such as the use of a neighboring water well, or specifying private building restrictions).
A servitude is a registered right (with the Land Department) that a person has over the immovable property (not restricted to land) of another and is the legal right that runs with an immovable property, but servitude can also be acquired after a period of time a certain right or practice has existed (note section 1401 below).
