protection against girlfriend stealing my land

Postby 60minuteman » Wed Feb 10, 2010 7:19 am

OK, im pretty confident that me and my thai girlfriend are looking to stay together and live happily ever after, but, im 38, its not the first time i will have been wrong about that one, and although im 99% sure she has been honest with me all along, at the back of my mind i have this fear of her waiting for the land deeds (which of course will be in her name) and doing a runner, so to speak....i mean its possible, it happens doesnt it?. Although a million baht isnt going to change my life here in the uk, im sure it would do for her in thailand...

is there any contract i can get drawn up before i pay my million baht for land in her name that at least gives me some re-course in the thai coursts, im sure it wont give me 100% protection, but peace of mind is nice.

If anyone thinks that im mad going through with this when i have nagging doubts then they have probably never been married! lol

cheers for any advice.

oh, i intend to go down the usufruct route after the land is paid for and the deeds have arrived, what im looking for is some contract between me and my girlfriend to say i have given her the money to buy the land, so i can make a claim to it, or to the money..

As far as I know, you wouldn't have a leg to stand on if something goes wrong, so if you don't trust her 101%, don't do it.

Leases and loan agreements between husband and wife have been talked about as being null and void by the courts as such an agreement between husband and wife is seen to be a disadvantage to usually the wife and so on and so on...

This is not going to make sixtyminit man feel any better
My wifes sister is lousy at cards and in the cr.p again
My wife is trying to get me to buy some land(tip for tree roots and god knows what else)her two sisters bought 2 rai for £9000 she wants to sell me half for only one million Baht
The farmer that sold them the land had used a tractor to clean up pushed the crap into one corner and sold it to them i got to see it just after monsoon and all the crap was poking out of the mud

jeez, youre all making me feel better.....lol

so, i've read all the posts and the more i read the more im confused..... now i dont know what to do....damn it!

To be honest although im only 38, i wouldnt mind a 30 year lease.... by 68 i will be lucky to still be above ground anyway...lol

off topic here.... is there anyway of checking if my girlfriend is still married????

Ok ok, im suspicious, but if you do your research on thailand and youre not then your mad or a fool, and sure i love women as much as the next man, but come on..... theyre in control whatever country you live in.

With the emphasis on GOOD.
Without wanting to make things seem even worse ..... there are a lot of untrustworthy lawyers around so be careful who you trust. :roll:
Maybe another legal topic should be "Can I use a lawyer to sue a lawyer?"

For a usufruct which is a watertight agreement and gives you full control of the land (except for selling it) to the day you die, you don't even need a lawyer, and the administrative fee is only 75 baht...
Read all about it on the CoolThaiHouse forum.

Probably because of the exceptionally high fees they charge that are totally disproportionate to their knowledge, commitment to work, and low operational costs.

OOPS i thought it was based on customer satisfaction trafic wardens Beat them to no ,1 spot
but its under reveiw i think polititions are current top scorer,s and tax officers no,2
The americans have the right idea they have banned animal testing but its still legal to use a lawyer and recomended
great how they want the fees up front if it was on productivity they would be skint
