:-k 2 days ago you were worried about losing your assets back in the UK if you married your T/G...I'd be more worried about what you could lose here :shock:

Back to question.....
PM Saint.... he's quite an authority on the subject 8)
A lot of it hinges on how far out the land is and whether it has a Red Chinote title ( basically allowing you any use for the land) or not, you might just get away with permission from the local headman of the area if its out in the jungle, or you might have to go the full hog with blueprints etc.etc. subject to local government approval...If in doubt, take a copy of the Chinote (or original) to the local land office and they will tell you what you can/can not do.
Chok Dee! :D

Thanks for the info
The land is about 20k outside udon

My assets in the uk would be worth far more than what i do in udon so worth protecting
The way i see it any money i invest in udon is lost, but you never no i could be wrong

I started my pile last April thinking that the planning permission bit had been taken care of. I was sitting eating noodles across the street, admiring how my family-built single level house looked so much better than the 2-floor effort by a 'professional' builder on the next plot. A pickup passed, slammed on the brakes and reversed back. The Thai chap got out and stood with hands on hips looking at each construction. I noted the pickup had one of those local government door decals and thought 'here we go.' Anyway, he picks the bigger house and went looking for the foreman. Around this time, I see the foreman and my father-in-law, heads down, skulking off to the old Thai-style house standing at the back of the property. The chap ends up yakking at the laborers and women folk and I just assume the 'passing farang having noodles' stance. Long and short of it, neither place had planning permission! Never mind, following Monday, mum-in-law was sent to the requisite office with deeds, plans and cash and it was all approved. I think in a 'more civilized' society, the council would have demanded the destruction of the properties as they stood and filing of planning permission. Gotta love LOS.

I believe so to, unless you are enlarging an already built property, as I understand it, and I could be wrong, enlarging needs no planning, but a seperate building does, unless it is for animals or just a kitchen, but it dpends on whether your neighbours object.

That's interesting , I always thought that any brick built house needed planning permission.

Happy to be corrected.

ok you dont need Planning permission only if you building over 3 story house , however you do need to let the local council know where on you plot of land you intend to build a 2 story house (takes about 1 week to process) with a 1 story you don't need to tell them anything (2004 ban dung)

Each tambon has their own set of rules. Check with the local amphur office where the house number will be issued. They can tell you whether or not a building permit will be needed. We're just finishing up a 1 story house far enough out that the local or bor dor didn't require plans to be submitted. While I was killing some time in the amphur office waiting for my yellow house book I asked where building permits were needed. They said that the or bor dor for the tambon the amphur was in required permits for the 3 moo baans closest to the amphur but farther out they didn't. So, it all depends on where you build. You need to check first.

If you're not familiar with tambon, amphur, or bor dor, and moo baan just ask your T/G to explain.

built our first place east of Udon within Tambon Nong Bua in 2003. It needed and got a stamped planning permit. Built the larger retirement villa in 2007 and the TW processed paperwork the same way; chanote, ID, house booklet, simple blueprints, and a diagram of the land deed showing the house location. As I recall the process was pretty quick and only a couple of hundred baht.. Better safe than sorry. Even with both houses, the land tax assessment for 2007 was only a few hundred baht total for 3 rai 97 sq way with 3 houses..
