Foreigner Mortgage Finance for Thai Property in Hua Hin and other destinations in Thailand

For a long time, obtaining financing within Thailand as a foreigner was seen as impossible. For several years, a public listed Thai company have been working to change this, offering an accessible product for all foreigners looking to buy or already owning property across Thailand.

Focusing on the freehold property market, they have solutions available for those looking to purchase condos, villas, houses or land. Offering loans of up to 50% of the valuation or purchase price (whichever lower) for terms of up to 10 years based on the Minimum Lending Rate of SCB Bank + 2.375%. With no upper limits on loan amount and a low minimum restriction of THB 1 million per loan, this product has gained great interest and they now have a client portfolio which truly spreads across the globe. A key strength of the product is that there are no requirements for a Thai spouse or a Thai work permit and they can recognize income from the majority of countries.

This product is available on new purchases, resales and for equity release, presenting a fantastic opportunity for new buyers, as well as existing investors with an already existing property portfolio. With a list of nearly 250 condo developments already approved, and continuing to grow, it means that for buyers/owners in these development that wish for finance, a very quick decision in principal can be given based on the pre-approved loan amounts. If a development is not on the list, then no need to worry; they regularly inspect new developments for a small fee to cover travel expenses and will arrange to do so as soon as a new application is received.

With land, house and villa financing available, this has become a popular option for Thai locals and Thai companies alike. With a few more requirements in terms of company documents, and different products available, this is something we like to discuss on a case-by-case basis.
