If you have proof that the funds have come from your resources, you can.
A guy here brought a house, put it in his GF's name, when they split she went to sell, he contested it in court was awarded half of the proceeds.

I do not want to have to contest it. It should be law that if we buy a house together, we split the proceeds if we divorce and sell. If my name was on the deed, it could not be sold until I signed off on it.

This means that the prices are higher than they might otherwise be. On the other hand, this same foreigner is excluded from bidding for the foreclosed land of some Isaan peasant. Or a simple Bangkok house. This allows the local despot a free and clear run at getting that land at an artificially cheap price.
I don't think that it is anything to do with either, it is just plain nationalism

The Uk used to have a similar law but decided to let foreigners buy into the market. Prices did not go up because of that, except possibly in some more expensive areas

They are brainwashed from kindergarten school all the way through their education and beyond that Thailand is for Thais.
Not to mention the xenophobic out look of their governments past and present, and I mean all their governments, all Thai political parties have the same plan concerning keeping falang/foreigners from having any rights in Thailand.

The saying in Thailand don,t spend any more than you would consider walking away from is very apt.

I cannot see anything concerning land or house ownership changing, it will certainly not change to suit the foreigner living in Thailand. As for a foreigner owning one small piece of land to build your house for you and your family. Its not going to happen as the Thais will have then lost control.

Its not a bad place to live,the big problem is that they can change the rules whenever they like, and as far as the Thai government is concerned all falang are the same..

You fail to account for the back fill underneath all the "foreigners" purchases. The whole market was driven beyond sanity by the "assumed" never ending bank of bricks and mortar.

The bread and butter of the UK housing market has been cut off at the knees by the prices being pushed further away from the new buyers due to high prices, high deposit requirements and accumulated education debts.

I suspect the US market is equally neutered.

The opening up of land sales to foreign investors would cause a similar inflation to the detriment of the local Thai population.

If you want to "invest" in land and property speculation in Thailand, start a company and pay the taxes. I believe you can achieve the near 50/50 split that way. I am not sure of the "returns" but others here may have some data on the levels achieved.

Why do you have children out of wedlock and think that your totally irresponsible behaviour should be rewarded ? No country really wants men like you.

Ha ha I wondered if you might turn up in this thead. Didn't have you down as a bible basher, probably explains your ignorance though.

"No country really wants men like you"

What men of working age who provide for their families? I guess they'd rather have your baht, what have you got left to live another 5 or 10 years? Then you get to be burnt here and all your money from teaching English grammar can remain in the country.

To deny paternity would be even worse behaviour. I could not deny a child and I could not treat a woman like dirt either.Some of us have standards of decency which we do not lower.
Why is being in a relationship but not being married treating either the child or the woman like shit?

And nigelandjan I'm surprised at you, equating my Mrs. to a single mother because we aren't married. I bet you read the Daily Mail and nearly marry women after visiting them twice which is ever so responsible, eh?

Correct. I believe many are truly unaware of this.
Depending on each situation, one can be named on multi-chanotes....land-holdings and principle properties.

Retaining a decent and knowledgeable Thai lawyer would be suggested if their is sizeable properties involved.

Agreed. Yet, the authorities won't find these simple things in a social and familial manner - in which they are.

It all comes down to politics and suppressive bureaucracy which has become a cornerstone of existences.....most everywhere.

Empathies extended. As most relate and understand.

That was not aimed at your wife ,, I was making remarks about how it is in the UK , what I see on a daily basis as I travel round earning more money to pay more tax to keep em.

BTW there was a program on radio 4 last week about the length of survivable marriages as opposed to people meeting a couple of times being happy with their lot and going off to the register office , and those having year after year engagements huge expensive show weddings ,, and yes the cheap and cheerful ones came out tops.

As I said before my first marriage lasted nearly 30 years after a couple of meets ,, if your happy and it feels right go for it , ( if you want to ) if not keep looking for your nirvana

no but the government may suddenly realise that foreigners investing in Thai land is a good thing - they will realise the money comes in and the land stays put

sure, but nothing to do with foreign investment in housing, that is so minimal by comparison
