It's usually a conspiracy between mom and the land office where this happens.

Children are clearly allowed to own land and property under Thai law, although the named adult appointed 'manager' must be by mutual consent of both parents.

 

I once was allowed to overhear a telephone conversation where two foreign grandparents wanted to put a house they were buying in their Thai grand-daughters name. They hired a Thai lawyer, who promptly phoned mom (Thai lady who let me listen in) and the lawyer said, "we can both make money from this". Thai lawyers are shockingly corrupt., and rarely work in the best interests of their foreign employers.

A Thai national can own property in their own name since the day they were born. Dual nationality is just a red herring...................they are still a Thai national

Indeed. When I buy land, my British citizenship has got absolutely nothing to do with it.

Nonsense.

 

Absolutely not nonsense. As I have already written before, I was an interpretor in Thai Juvenile courts some 10 years and I was shocked seeing and hearing how biased Thai lawyers were. First hand information.

So tell me your own first hand experience and if you can't, stop acting as if you do.

Better we put our big boy pants on and have a healthy debate. 

Totally agree, yet making statements like "It's really tiresome to read all the WRONG information put forward by ignorant posters." is not called for. Being polite is the way to go

Are you Thai? I also work as an interpreter.

Why would I be a Thai? Juvenile court accept foreign interpretors and I would advise that you use a foreigner if you need one in a Thai court, or at least a Thai interpretor who has never met "the opposite side" or your lawyer. Thai interpretors are also biased but from what I have seen, not as often as Thai lawyers. It is still not acceptable.

 

First hand experience again. I "corrected" the Thai interpretor on what a judge said for a Brit myself a couple of times in a court appearance, it was easy to see that the lawyer disliked it. The Thai interpretor didn't interpret much after that... That Brit asked me to be his interpretor next time and I was.

I am reading this post about Thai minor being able to buy land/house
 
I tried that, buying for my child, a house
 
Land department of Samut Prakarn threw  section 1574 at me
 
they need the court's approval
 
I could ask that (divorced)
 
but does my ex-wife still consent with this, as she is also a guarding, but an absent one never visits the child, does pay for only government school fee, that is it, nothing else...
 
I would love to get sole custody, but that is another unicorn on its own
 
if after court's approval, I still need ex-wife's consent, than I better save myself the trouble
 
as I lost the deposit on a house, as my ex-wife said it was not her problem
 
I knew I could not sell the land without court's approval, if child would have had a house/land
 
but not the being GIFTED a house by me, with my money...

Can somebody help me with this: we just wanted to buy some land on our child’s name. The person who own the land showed me the red chanote for the land already. On the back of the chanote it is recorded that he bought this land 25 year ago from somebody else. But on the front of the chanote there is still the name from the first owner of the land. Is this normal and why is this not possible to change this name on the front and put the actual owner inside there?
