If you are considering living in Thailand, maybe you wish to retire in Thailand or better yet retire in Chiang Mai or Pattaya then consider leasing your property before buying. This allows you to decide where you wish to live for the long term. Once you have settled in then consider the area and then only look at buying property or buying the condo in which you are living.
This is normally what most expats do in Thailand.
Consider also the cost of living in Thailand and how best to live on your monthly income. If you are married to a Thai you can obtain a marriage visa for Thailand and you can also buy property in the name of your wife. Buying property in your wife’s name has its own problems so speak to a lawyer first. Need any help then see our main website or call any of our offices in Thailand listed below.
