The Thai lease agreement is simple and can be a viable option for a long term stay in Thailand. A lease under Thai law has a maximum duration of 30 years.
Renewal must be made before the expiry of the validity and automatic renewal is not foreseen. The Thai lease must be in writing. If the contract has a duration of more than 3 years, it must be registered with the Land Department.

It can also exist in English, but English serves to confirm what is written in the Thai version, always considered the main one.
For your understanding, there are two types of lease agreement: for land and for homes, for private or commercial use.
In all cases, for the lease to be 100% valid, the Thai version of the lease will be attached to the owner’s title deed.

Lease agreement validity in case of Landlord’s death

Usually, it remains valid even in the event of the landlord’s death or if the land is sold.
However, it is always better to be clear in the contract and specify if the conditions with the tenant vary and how they vary in the event of the landlord’s death or sale of the property.

Moreover, it is good for you to know that without the consent of the landlord, lease agreements do not allow the property to be subleased or transferred to third parties.

Especially if you are seeking a lease contract for commercial use, keep well noted that a lease can only be registered on land that has a legally issued property title.
