Stan best thing to do is drop by the tessaban up there and ask. From reading on Thaivisa each tessaban handles things differently. But most all require two witnesses that know you and can verify that you live in the house you claim as your residence.

When I got mine, almost a year ago, photos weren't required. Apparently, things change. Also, bump wasn't required to have a letter from Immigration, but the office that handles Nong Bua lamphu does. A mutual acquaintance has received the royal run around from NK immigration trying to obtain "the letter".

What are you calling 'house book' here? There's a blue book, a yellow book and a tibian bahn all mentioned here. Which one is the 'house book'?

I paid for and live in a house with my wife and son that was built on my father-in-law's land. What document do I need to be listed in as the 'Owner'?

Many thanks,
T

Bulls**t, I have been getting interest on my two Bangkok bank accounts for years now. The last lot was deposited into my account on 20 June 2008. I have not updated the bank book for my other account so do not know when interest went in.

I think we are getting a little off topic, but with the moderator's indulgence,

Stan, if you have a substantial sum, you can open a "fixed deposit", much like what we called a CD in the U.S. or "time deposit". Last year I was getting about 4% on my 800k retirement deposit at Krung Thai; not sure what it is now. That was 32,000 baht the first year. Not bad considering that the U.S. dollar slid at the same timeD.

In any case, I think it may be worthwhile for you to ask at another bank, or maybe even a different branch of the bank you are with now.

We now return (hopefully) to the main topic...getting a yellow housebook...

i have just noticed this topic. i purchaced a house in udon thani in mid june and my girl friend recieved the blue house book. we later went to the tessabarn to apply for the yellow book. i had my passport, an official translation in thai, this was done at a local shop and the translation has an official embossed seal. my girl friend had her house book and i.d. card.we then went through the form filling session and told the fee to be paid to the casher there and then. this is when my g.f. and brother told me the most important part of the application, some very nice things had to be got for the clerk and cashier to eat, and i kid you not.it seems the books are printed a a central site and mine took about 5 weeks to arrive.

Thanks rick,I will check into fixed deposit account after this years visa renewal!As I am thinking of tempting the immigration in NK,prior to going to BK and that would save me a trip to the embassy for an income statement!

Back off-topic. I was in a branch of the Kasikorn Bank in UTH to get some dollars and noted that the interest rates schedules showed 0.00% for non-resident account holders.

OK hey you, I reckon you are talking something a bit more than larb and somtam then? You had to buy them lunch somewhere? Bring the food to their office? Don't fancy turning up when I do my yellowbook application looking a total wally with some fancy plates of radnaa or kaopat alai godai so what were the 'nice things' you proffered?

Years ago in Banglamung, a bottle of Regency and a couple of cartons of Marlboro daeng got things sorted.
