A 3-year rental contract (rent) must be registered with the local Landratsamt to be enforceable (through legal action) on a trial of more than 3 years. The rental agreement should be registered within 3 years of signing and starting the lease with the Department of Thailand, or the tenant could lose his right to bring a tenancy dispute to a court. Under the Civil Code and the Code of Commerce, the maximum term of tenancy in the contract must not exceed 30 years. In the longer term, the lease is automatically reduced to 30 years (section 540). Similarly, pre-signed or pre-agreed lease renewals are not accepted under Thai law, and all successive agreed tenancy conditions are considered part of a lease agreement and are reduced to 30 years (section 546). A lease agreement may not be renewed until after the initial term of the lease has expired, but may exceed thirty years from the date of renewal. On this page, you can download a free multilingual rental/boutique contract that you can rent from a Thai landlord. This contract must help fill the language and cultural barrier in order to ensure a smooth and easy rental for both tenants and landlords. Each word is in both English and Thai, side by side like this: 2-part professional residential rental contract, part 1 « Rent of a furnished house » and part 2 « Conditions of use ». The rental agreement is written on the back of the owner`s ownership authorization and on the original title of the Landesamt. There will also be an official Thai rental document with the guaruda symbol of the government (see example) that the parties must sign with the Landesamt.
This official document must relate to the private lease agreement between the parties. A copy of the private lease, as well as the official lease of the Landamt, is attached to the deed of ownership of the Landesamt. Rent registration fees, including stamp duty, are 1.1% higher than the total lease price for the 30-year lifespan. This should also be paid when registering the rental agreement. The income (rent) of the rental agreement is taxed as the owner`s personal income and must be paid to the financial service. If you are from a Western country, you are probably thinking about the treaty rather than a legal document that will help you in the event of a problem. Forget it – it`s Thailand! If there are serious disagreements, you will lose no matter what. You can hire a lawyer if you wish, but the legal system is hopelessly unrestrained, and almost all village chiefs and judges will be happy to take a bribe from their compatriot, or simply prefer the owner for nationalist reasons rather than turn to the hot farang.
