Despite the fact that it can be difficult for foreigners to purchase freehold , non-Thai citizens have the option of holding 100% interest in a Thailand land lease. Thailand lease law allows a maximum lease period of 30 years. However, foreigners have the ability to renew the lease for 2 additional 30 year periods. So, a non-Thai national can have a lease hold up to 90 years in Thailand.
Also, it is worth remembering that while acquiring additional years on a lease hold in the UK or EU member states can be problematic, it is generally far easier to acquire the additional years on a lease hold in Thailand.
