Most of us know that Hua Hin is one of the most popular holiday resorts in Thailand, boasting an eclectic mix of beach and urban life. However, Hua Hin has a history, culture, environment, economy and infrastructure that distinguish it from the many island resorts of Thailand. Here are ten facts about Hua Hin that are not so well known.

Hua Hin District

There is much more to Hua Hin than the beach resort. Hua Hin district makes up one of the eight different districts in the province of Prachuap Khiri Khan on Thailand’s Malay Peninsula. Hua Hin, the town, is the centre of the district’s government and is situated around two hundred kilometres to the south west of the nation’s capital, Bangkok.

History

Hua Hin town was originally named Samore Riang by a small group of settlers who moved there from the north, in around 1834, to escape a severe drought. Samore Riang means “rows of rocks”, which reflected the rocks that were scattered along the beach. The name was subsequently changed to Baan Laem Hin before it was given its present name in around 1911. Formerly a fishing village, Hua Hin took off as a holiday resort when it was adopted by members of the Thai Royal Family who would travel there to avoid the heat and humidity of Bangkok. The construction of their royal summer residences and a new railway, which made Hua Hin more easily accessible, cemented its reputation as the most popular beach resort in Thailand. Since the 1980s, there have been major hotel and residential developments in Hua Hin and there is still a royal residence north of the town known as Phra Ratchawang Klai Kangwon (the Far from Worries Palace).

Culture

The main cultural influences in Hua Hin are connected to religion and the Royal Family. Thailand’s population is around 95% Buddhist and residents and visitors are expected to show respect for the traditions of the religion, especially when visiting a temple or a location that has a statue or image of Buddha. It is considered disrespectful to point your feet towards an image of Buddha, as it is to pose for a photograph in front of one.  Similarly, Buddhists monks are to be treated with respect. They are not permitted to be touched by a woman and women should always dress modestly when entering a temple or being in the presence of a monk. The Royal Family is looked upon with considerable reverence in Thailand generally but perhaps even more so in Hua Hin, due to its longstanding royal connections. Any slight against or criticism of the King or the Royal family can constitute a criminal offence and may even result in the offender being arrested and prosecuted.

Environment

Hua Hin, as with the rest of Thailand, is protected by a wide range of laws that were introduced to protect the country’s environment. This is particularly relevant to Hua Hin, where anyone wishing to undertake a new property development that will impact upon the environment is legally obliged to produce an environmental impact assessment report for consideration by the authorities.

Wildlife Dangers

Hua Hin is home to many species of wildlife, not all of which are friendly! There are many species of snake in Hua Hin district, some of which are aggressive and venomous. King cobras, spitting cobras, kraits and vipers are the most dangerous of these. It is wise to avoid coming into contact with all snakes, which are only likely to bite if they feel threatened. Additionally, there are scorpions, centipedes, ants, spiders and other insects that can give a nasty bite or sting.  In the ocean it is possible that you will encounter dragon fish, rockfish, jellyfish and sea snails, all of which can be highly venomous.

Festivals

There are many festivals in Thailand that are also celebrated in Hua Hin. However, certain events are specific to Hua Hin, making it one of the more interesting places to visit. These include:

  • The Food Festival, which is held at the end of November every year.
  • The Jazz Festival, which takes place in June.
  • The International Cricket Sixes Tournament, which is held over five days every April.
  • The International Golf Festival, which takes place in August.
  • Kings Cup Elephant Polo, held in September.
  • The Vintage Car Rally, held annually, with a parade of vintage cars from Bangkok to Hua Hin.

Terrorism

On 11th August 2016 Hua Hin was the location of two bomb blasts, which killed one person and injured another twenty three. Twelve of these were understood to be tourists. On the following day, there were three further explosions, causing one more fatality and injuring four more people. Responsibility for these bombings has never been clearly established.

Property Laws

Buying a property in Hua Hin or anywhere else in Thailand is very straight forward and 100% legal.

If you are looking at buying a condo the laws are like this : In a condo complex 51% of the units must be Thai owned and 49% of the units can but don’t have to be Foreigner owned, this is fully compliant with Thai ownership laws and the ownership is registered at the local government land office  department. In some holiday destinations in Thailand the foreign quota is always full in 99% of condo buildings but in Hua Hin where it is also a very popular resort for middle class and wealthy Thais 80% of condos are Thai owned meaning the foreign quota is never full, this means that a foreigner can buy from a Thai and the unit can be transferred from Thai quota to the Foreign quota.

House ownership is a little more complex but none the less it’s 100% legal and it’s always advised to hire a recommended lawyer that makes sure everything is contractually structured correctly.

Foreigners are allowed to own the structure of any property so you always own the house 100% and this is registered at the land office department. The land is leased, again this is 100% legal and you will get a 90 years lease (30+30+30) registered in your name at the land office, this lease is, in effect perpetual and it’s important to remember this fact that every time the property is bought and sold the new owner gets a brand new 90 year lease so in effect it never runs down, if you use a good lawyer there is lots of different points that will be added to the lease contract to give total security to the Lessee.

Hua Hin Railway Station

Of course, the beach is the focus of many visitors to the resort. However, there are other attractions in Hua Hin, the most iconic of which is the Hua Hin railway station. It was the construction of the station that opened up the resort of Hua Hin to the Thia Royal Family and aristocracy by reducing the travel time from Bangkok to a mere four hours. A trip on the railway is a genuine experience of Hua Hin history.

Hua Hin Attractions

There are numerous attractions in the resort and district of Hua Hin. Here are just ten of them:

  • Kaeng Krachan National Park
  • Cicada Market
  • Plernwan
  • Sam Phan Nam Floating Market
  • Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle
  • Mrigadayavan Palace
  • Pa La-U Waterfall
  • Wat Huay Mongkol Temple
  • Black Mountain Water Park
  • Hua Hin Night Market

Whether you want to sample Thailand’s best beach life or enjoy the history and culture of this popular resort and region, there will be something for you in Hua Hin.

How it works with Property agents in Hua Hin

Being a professional real estate agent here in Hua Hin for 6 and a half years (as of November 2017) I feel it’s of the utmost importance that would-be property buyers understand the works of the real estate industry here in Hua Hin and the process of your search for a Property in Hua Hin starts with clarity for both yourself and us as your agent.

I myself as a successful business man who holds good relationships with many people in this town and has many clients you could refer to as a reference don’t want to carry out my business on the basis of selling a property by getting lucky, this meaning that as an example you view 5 properties with our agency today and 5 tomorrow with another agency and you liked a property and decided to proceed to buy with the other agency, this means my time with you was totally wasted and I could have shown you that property you liked too given a chance.

Time, ‘our time’ to you is totally free, it will never at any point cost you a single dime but it does cost us money in work time, diesel for our vehicles as well as the other day to day costs of running a business in a busy tourist resort, I say this to all my clients, we are happy to spend as much time with you that is totally needed to find you your ideal property that’s our commitment to you for your honesty and trust, if we don’t think we can match you to what you are looking for rest assured we will tell you and not lead you along, that would be a waste of everyone’s time.

 

Firstly, I should explain that 90% of the resale properties here in Hua Hin are listed by almost all the agents, for the maybe 10% that we don’t have listed we can still use these properties and co-broke with the listing agent on that listing.

Our agency represents 100% of all the most reputable developments in Hua Hin, our policy is not to sell properties by developers who have not completed at least one project here in Hua Hin, therefore again we have you covered there and can show you all the best projects.

What I am getting at in-essence is there really is no need to use multiple agents when searching for your ideal property here in Hua Hin, please see my reasonings below:

  • Double booked property viewings – One day you view a property with one agent and then the next day you mistakenly view again with another agent as both agents have the same listing but with different pictures – this is a waste of everyone’s time I am sure you agree?
  • For myself as an agent, if you have been out on viewings previously with another agency and looked at properties and I am not fully informed of what you have viewed then I don’t have the full picture in my head and this not only puts me at a disadvantage on that day but also prevents me from doing my job to the best of my ability which is what my clients expect.
  • Off-plan vs resale properties – In all honesty I would rather not have clients that choose to view off-plan new projects with another agent and then choose me to view resales, point one being it’s easier to view new developments than it is to view resales where we have to arrange keys and times of viewings with the property owner, if you choose me as your agent I want to show you both resale and new build. Point 2, in my experience with clients with a budget up to about 12 Mil Thai Baht and under, there is a 70% chance those buyers will buy on a new project off-plan, it makes no sense to me to put myself at a disadvantage of closing a property deal by just being used as an agent to view resales and I don’t get the opportunity to show the client new builds as well.
  • If you find a property on another website you like the look of feel free to send me a link, as above it’s highly likely we also have that property and if not we are happy to arrange a viewing for you with the other agent and accompany you to the viewing, this keeps us educated as to everything you have viewed and enables us to know exactly what your likes and dislikes are.
  • When you are looking into buying a new build property here in Hua Hin as soon as we give you the name of a project we register your name with that project, this enables you to get locked in at the current price if you go on to buy there and also enables the project to know that if you go direct to the project you are still our client and we will still get paid commission if you go there alone for our work on providing information to you on the project.

Choosing a real estate agent to work with in Hua Hin

I myself when I buy property abroad no matter which country in the world I choose to buy want to feel secure that I am using a reputable and honest brokerage when searching for my ideal property, I have seen clients try to cut corners when searching to buy property in Hua Hin and it can end in disaster on occasions and to be honest, I don’t have much sympathy, why ever would you come to a foreign country and decide to act in the total opposite way that you would in your home country if you wanted to buy a property there, some people do and it remains a mystery to me why some do…..?

Things to look for and to ask an agent you are considering working with.

  • Do you have a registered office you work from – do you think this is important ? surely this is a must, would you buy a property in your home country from a company that has no office ?
  • Work permit, registered company and pay your taxes – again, this is also a point which should never be over-looked, it’s imperative you choose an agent with the above criteria, this means that we are held accountable by the laws of the land and are accountable for everything we do in our job.
  • Another thing that must not be overlooked is the fact that if you are working with a so called agent that is not 100% legal you also may be breaking the law, yes that’s correct, work with an unregistered back street property agent and you could find yourself in trouble with the law here in Thailand, why take chances working with someone who can’t be held accountable for what they do ?

How we like to operate our business here at Property Solutions Hua Hin

Honesty, you like it and so do we, please let us know exactly where you are in the buying process ?

  • How well do you know Hua Hin ?
  • Are you looking to buy property in any specific area of town or the surrounding localities ?
  • Have you looked at anything previously ?
  • Please tell us the project names or send us links of what you have looked at previously ?
  • Likes and dis-likes ? This helps us immensely with our search and narrowing it down for you.

Reputable real estate agents in Hua Hin

After reading the above you may feel that I have been trying to put you off using any other agency here in Hua Hin apart from ourselves, not at all !!! obviously we would prefer you choose us but that’s a decision you can only make – There are 6 or 7 good agents here in Hua Hin that are reputable, very experienced, do the best for their clients and have a good life here in this town we all call home, all of those agents have offices, work permits, employ the necessary amount of Thais we have to by law and pay our taxes, choose one of these agents to work with and put your mind at ease and know you are in good hands.

Don’t work with one of the illegal agents in town that own a website and a desk in their front room and have no work permit or no tax record – You have been warned !!!!

As a closing note, if you are using say ‘1 other’ agent we can live with this, after all you may want a second opinion on things and we can understand that entirely and we are still happy to work with you, if you are using multiple different agents, we wish you luck in your search and would likely decline in working with you any further.

3 Simple Steps to Choosing the Best Real Estate Agent in Hua Hin, Thailand

When in search of the perfect balance of the cosmopolitan lifestyle in a relaxed beach town, you need not look any further than Hua Hin. While the city has not always existed as it can be found today, Hua Hin began to tap into its unique identity in the 1920s, when aristocratic families chose it as the perfect spot to escape bustling Bangkok and build their summer homes. Ever since, Hua Hin has slowly become a dream destination for international travelers as well as a precious weekend getaway for Thailanders.

But with the real estate market on the rise in Hua Hin and the high demand for luxury living and vacationing, how do you find the perfect agent to help make your Thailand dreams come true? Here are a few simple steps to help you find the right real estate company and—in turn—find your perfect escape in Hua Hin, just as the aristocratic families did before you.

Do Your Research and Your Soul Searching

Research is key in the process of finding the right agent to partner with. You want to make sure that the company you are working with has a high standard of professionalism and a positive track record. Read reviews from other home-seekers who have utilized a given company’s services and take note of how an agent’s strengths align with your priorities.

Not only should you do some digging for information about prospective agents, but you should also allot some time to identify what it is you’re really searching for. This includes researching and imagining yourself in specific neighborhoods, heavily considering budget, and identifying your ‘must-have’ features for your new Hua Hin property. Jot it all down on a list! The better concept you have of your ideal situation, the better chance you’ll have at finding the agent to get you there.

Find Someone with In-Depth Experience in the City or Surrounding Areas

This may seem obvious, but choosing the best Hua Hin real estate agent who knows the specific market is paramount to finding the perfect property. When you partner with someone who has worked in—or better yet, lived in—a particular area for a long period of time, you’ll have better access to hidden treasures and off-the-beaten-path properties. Additionally, knowledgeable agents can help you make the best decisions based on your needs and desires, as well as sway you away from seemingly ideal spots that could have negative features down the road. For example, you may absolutely love a specific condo on the beach and be anxious to make an offer. But a good agent—someone with prior experience in the area—can warn you of the depreciating property value or regular complaints about excessive noise in the area. You get the insight of a local, even if you’re new to Thailand.

Pick an Agent Who Has Access to the Type of Property You Specifically Are Seeking

Not all real estate companies are created equally. They all have different strengths and focuses. Because of that, it’s important that you seek an agent who is knowledgeable about and has access to the type of property you are looking for. The process of shopping for and buying a condo is completely different than the process of finding land to build a home from the ground up. Because of this, it’s key to do research to make sure the company you choose to work with is equipped to help you find your ideal dream home, no matter the type of property.

Ultimately, know your standards and know where you are willing to compromise. If you do your research and find an agent who can see your vision and has the tools and knowledge to assist you in that dream, you’ll be enjoying the beautiful beaches and lively markets of Hua Hin in no time.

I am writing this article because I am Managing Director of one of the best known, reputable and established property agencies in Hua Hin town and wanted to give our clients some guidance on the do’s and don’ts when buying villas off-plan, obviously our focus is Hua Hin, Thailand but in my opinion you could learn and take advice from this guide wherever you are buying off-plan in the world, the same principles apply no matter where in the World you are looking to buy off-plan property.

Buying off-plan property here in Hua Hin has some great benefits but it must be done correctly and with the advice of a real estate agent that has been established here for a number of years, experience is key !

IMG_2741

The Process :

The process for buying off-plan property is generally the same for most projects and so it should be, there is a standard process that’s recognised and if you come across a developer who doesn’t want to follow the process just walk away !

200,000 Thai Baht Reservation, when your chosen real estate agent has shown you all the best developments that Hua Hin has to offer and you have found the property of your dreams and you would like to proceed with the purchase you would initially place a 200,000 thb reservation down to reserve the plot of land where your house will be built. This is normally a one page basic agreement that describes the property, the sales price, plot number, your name and other personal details, copies of your passports attached and the developers contact details and all other relevant company details.

Note : Generally these reservations are non-refundable subject to the successful due diligence that will be carried out by your lawyer. Therefore make sure you have thought things through and are sure that you really want to go ahead with the purchase.

Hiring a lawyer :

We would always recommend hiring a lawyer to process contracts and assist on the purchase, some clients do still choose not to but why wouldn’t you want legal representation on a big purchase such as a property. You would use one buying in your home country and you should use one here in Thailand too.

Most clients would generally ask the agent for recommendations in lawyers and the agent should be able to give you the names and contact details of 2 or 3 good lawyers that their customers have used previously, of-course you don’t have to use these lawyers and the choice is yours to use which ever lawyer you would like.

Most clients would hire a lawyer here in Hua Hin, as if they have to hire a lawyer from Bangkok there would be at least 2 trips to Hua Hin required and this can lead to heavy costs on your part. Most lawyers charge between 40k – 90k for the fully comprehensive service of a property purchase including sign over at the land office.

Contracts :

The developer should and will if they are reputable have their own draft sales and purchase contracts drawn, these will be passed to the lawyer of your choice with all the plot and construction details and the lawyer will fill in the blanks being the names and addresses of the buyers as well as Passport numbers and contact details. Depending on the way your are purchasing there may also be a lease agreement that has to be processed, all good lawyers will ensure this is written with all the latest laws included and have lots of points in the contract that gives you added security, it’s imperative that you use a lawyer to draw this contact.

Payment terms :

Payment terms will also be included and from part of the contract, if you was buying a villa off-plan and construction was starting almost immediately then the payment terms would be something like this :

200,000 Thai Baht reservation to secure the plot.

Between 20% and 40% down on contract signing and prior to the start of construction.

Staged payments upon construction milestones where pictures will be sent to you.

Most developers will give you a construction time of between 8 and 12 months.

Mid Construction point :

Around the middle of construction, unless you have done this before you will be required to come to Hua Hin and the project and spend half a day with the development team to choose tiles for the flooring, swimming pool and terrace as well as paint colours for internal walls, kitchen colour, and also if standard the wood colours for built in furniture.

Completion and handover :

When your villa is completed you will come to Hua Hin, if not already here and go through a snag sheet, so the developer if reputable will have a document with every-thing that can snag, you will walk around the villa and check everything is working to the standard it should be, if certain things are flagged and need snagging these should be done within a given time frame, usually 7-10 days and before the furniture is fitted.

You will also go to the land department with your lawyer and the developer’s representative and complete the paper work for ownership and the house will be signed over to you.

Congratulations, you are now the very proud owner of your brand new villa here in Hua Hin, Paradise City is a name that some people refer to as this wonderful, amazing town that we live !

Here at Property Solutions Hua Hin we use our extensive knowledge of the local property market and current project developments to strive to find the perfect property to completely match or exceed the expectations and requirements of our customers. The next step is for our clients to employ the services of a reputable legal firm to ensure that the purchase is dealt with correctly and protect their investment so that they can relax and enjoy their dream property. The most popular ways that properties are purchased are as follows:

Freehold

It is not normally possible for a foreigner to purchase freehold land in Thailand apart from in a few limited circumstances. The main exception to this is that a foreigner is perfectly entitled to legally own a freehold condominium that forms part of the foreign allocation quota of a condominium project (generally the quota is 49% of available units at the development).

However, not all purchasers wish to buy a condominium, much preferring a villa instead, to give them the extra privacy, space and independence that this offers. Whilst there is no “one size fits all” way of structuring the purchase some of the current most popular ways are:

Leasehold

The landowner retains ownership of the land but typically grants a 30 year lease to the buyer, with a binding contract to issue a further 30 year lease in the future. The buyer has the ownership of the house construction transferred to them as they are allowed to own this under Thai law. Naturally, it is essential to ensure that the developer is reputable and that the contracts are drawn up properly to ensure that the 30 year extension will be able to be obtained in the future and under what terms.

Limited Company

One of the most popular ways to purchase a villa is to use a limited company. There are certain rules to comply with regarding the number of Thai shareholders but in the majority of cases this does not present any practical difficulties. The obvious advantage of a limited company is that it can own the freehold land, so there will be no need to seek an extension of a lease in 30 year’s time from the landlord. The house construction can be owned either by the buyer or the limited company.

Thai Spouse / Partner

Many of our customers are married to, or in a relationship with, a Thai partner. It is, of course, perfectly possible for the Thai spouse / partner to own the land and house construction and many clients have structured the villa purchase in such a way in the past without any problems whatsoever. Unfortunately, it is a fact of life that some marriages or relationships will inevitably break down. So we strongly advise that certain safeguards are put in place by your lawyers to protect your financial situation should this happen. These include owning the house construction in your name with a lease to you from them for the land (or a Usufruct which is in effect a lifetime lease) together with a Pre-Nuptial Agreement if you are intending to getting married.

Further Points

Whichever way you choose to structure the purchase it is also extremely good practice to have simple Thai Wills drafted to ensure that your assets are dealt with in accordance with your wishes in the event that something happens to you. From experience this is relatively inexpensive and helps simplify the administration of your Estate, particularly when some of your beneficiaries may not be from Thailand and would not know where to even begin to start sorting your financial affairs out in a country whose legal system they are not familiar with.

We hope that you have found this brief legal overview of the purchasing process here in Thailand useful. Naturally, having been established here in Hua Hin for so long we know the best firms of reputable solicitors in the area to put you in touch with and work closely with them throughout the purchasing process for your protection and peace of mind.  In addition to handling property sales and purchases a decent firm of solicitors will offer the following services to cater for all of their clients’ requirements:

  • Visas and Work Permits
  • Pre-Nuptial Agreements, Adoption and Marital Issues
  • Contract Drafting & Review
  • Business Acquisitions and Disposals
  • Limited Company Formations
  • Employee Contracts & Compliance
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Drafting of Thai Wills
  • Certain firms also offer accounting services including utility / property expense management and payment on behalf of villa owners

If you would like us to recommend a reputable, established Law Firm with a good track record that clients of ours have used previously, please feel free to contact us direct.
