Buying or investing in property may seem like a straight forward and easy transaction. You simply pay the money, transfer the ownership and that’s it. But it’s not that way in Thailand.
If it were, there wouldn’t be so many issues related to buying property here. Many foreigners face problems after they have already bought property. They have to appear in court to fight cases, which is a huge waste of time and money.
One such recent issue was at Aspasia. In March this year, ten foreign tenants from the Aspasia Phuket Resort, led by Dutch national Jan Cornelis van Zuilekom, complained to Phuket Governor Chamroen Tipayapongtada that he and other tenants had been locked out of their rooms and had their electricity and water cut off.
