Koh Samui — A Paradise On Earth

Koh Samui, a dense for­est island of lush green­ery and sur­round­ed by moun­tains all over is Thailand’s sec­ond largest island. It lies off the Gulf of Thai­land on the east coast and is a pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tion for its attrac­tive loca­tions, eye water­ing beach­es and its cos­mopoli­tan appeal act­ing like the melt­ing pot for so many dif­fer­ent cul­tures resid­ing there. With palm lined beach­es act­ing as the back­drop for crys­tal clear turquoise blue ocean water and a seduc­tive­ly invit­ing weath­er, the cli­mate remains a heady accom­plice and flat­ter­ing com­pli­ment to the views that Koh Samui offers. With just one month of heavy rain annu­al­ly, tourists and locals are flock­ing to this pic­turesque island through­out the year to enjoy their moments of bliss and relax­ation in the seclu­sion of their com­plete pri­va­cy.

Your Very Own Dream Home in Koh Samui

Many con­do­mini­ums and vil­las have sprung up on prime ocean fac­ing prop­er­ties for vaca­tion rentals to tourists and with the inter­est in Koh Samui on an all time high, a lot of land is being pur­chased to serve as retire­ment des­ti­na­tions for expats or as invest­ments. Although the Thai prop­er­ty pos­ses­sion and own­er­ship laws for for­eign­ers in Thai­land, or Koh Samui do help the case, this is the right time to con­tem­plate buy­ing land in Koh Samui which is grow­ing by leaps and bounds as an invest­ment cen­ter and at the same time pro­vides a peace­ful and relaxed envi­ron­ment for retire­ment homes. Real Estate in Thai­land is rid­ing a favourable tidal ebb and Koh Samui is no excep­tion. With the recent atten­tion on Koh Samui’s exclu­sive loca­tions and lush green moun­tain­side with a beach view, a lot of inter­est has risen in pur­chas­ing prop­er­ty or buy­ing land in Koh Samui. Although the law does not favour their case a lot of for­eign­ers have shown notice­ably ris­ing inter­ests in buy­ing prop­er­ty or pur­chas­ing land for build­ing their house in Koh Samui.

Apartment, Villa, House or Land in Koh Samui

Now if you’re with me till now, and chances are you are a non Thai per­son read­ing this, you must be won­der­ing how one can buy prop­er­ty like a vil­la or con­do­mini­um or pur­chase land for build­ing a house in Koh Samui if the law does not allow for the same. Hold your breath, before the thought even cross­es your mind, we are def­i­nite­ly not insin­u­at­ing pur­su­ing or opt­ing for ille­gal means. Def­i­nite­ly not! How­ev­er, like Shy­lock­’s penal­ty for a pound of flesh in the Mer­chant of Venice was legal­ly over­ruled by abject­ing a loop­hole in the abid­ing legal­i­ties, a for­eign­er may even­tu­al­ly own land and prop­er­ty in Koh Samui in Thai­land by exploit­ing a loop­hole in the law. The loop­hole that we are dis­cussing here is known as the con­cept of free­hold and lease­hold. With the help of a reli­able and trust­ed prop­er­ty agent, a for­eign­er can, by virtue of direct invest­ments in the coun­try’s gov­ern­ment and infra­struc­ture, or after form­ing a com­pa­ny with legit­i­mate Thai cit­i­zens, obtain actu­al own­er­ship of land for build­ing prop­er­ty. This is the con­cept of free­hold and although does achieve the end objec­tive, is a rather com­pli­cat­ed and expen­sive pro­ce­dure. How­ev­er through the pro­vi­sion of a lease­hold for a spec­i­fied amount of years one can call a prop­er­ty and the land as their own before the lease peri­od expires.

Doctor Property To The Rescue

With the help of a pro­fes­sion­al real estate expert one can always buy a fur­nished apart­ment or a con­do­mini­um out­right even if they are a for­eign­er because Thai law has pro­vi­sions per­mit­ting the pur­chase of fin­ished apart­ment spaces to a foreigner’s name. Hence it is always advis­able to choose a reput­ed and estab­lished real estate agency to pur­sue and ful­fil your dream of liv­ing in Koh Samui. At Doc­tor Prop­er­ty you can find the right match for your needs and choose from a wide range of selec­tions with­out need­ing to go through all the both­er and com­pli­ca­tions of know­ing the law process. You enjoy your peace of mind while the Doc­tor attends to your dream prop­er­ty in Koh Samui.
