    Land ownership through child

    Just a quick question to find out if anyone knows if a child with both a Thai and British passport can have land bought in Thailand in their name.

    Thanks for any replies.

    I dont think so but its a good question. It can be left to them, but not purchased in their name I dont think.

    Jake..........................

    I was wondering the same. Hoping it was a loop hole in the law. However, I do remember a few years ago, that my missis could buy land, but the money couldn't come from me cos I'm a foreigner..................or some bollox like that. How they can prove otherwise I'm not sure!

    Omlagus,

    I think if a Thai woman is married to a foreigner than they can buy land if they are working. The logic being that they have an 'income' of their own so have the means to pay for the purchase themselves.

    So it looks like child labour laws might get in the way of children owning land.

That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're the underdog. We're mutts."

    I co-signed the loan on our house 8 years ago. No problems. Paid for now though. Wifes name.

    As opposed to not working? Wouldn't it depend on how she planned to pay for it? Also 'they' wouldn't own the land as far as I know, rather she would. Although I think a Westerners wages can be used to help buy land via the wife, but it's still her land as far as I know.

    I think AO is spot on...can be left it (as can a farang albeit as a caretaker....although if I remember correctly Pinky said that while it's doable, if it was taken to court it might be over ruled and deemed not doable) but can't buy/own land until they're 18??? I'm pretty sure this is the case.

    AFAIK a child with a Thai passport is able to purchase land and structures on that land.

    I know that there are some rules and regs on ages but cannot recall them.

    It would be best if the child is recorded in a house registration book (Tabien Bahn).
