Ok having read a rescent post about moving and working in LOS i feel i must post this.
I have been to LOS more than a few times now,i am married to a Thai (Noi)
The last 5 Times to LOS we have stayed at a hse i rent in Bangkwai.Last feb06 we were talking to a Thai restuarant owner we know regarding building a hse in the future.
He told us that a welsh cple were having a hse built through him and that they would be at his restuarant in a cple days.
So we waited and went to see them. We were invited to see the hse.(almost complete) They have a small bussiness in england,but none in Thailand.
Now having read most of the rules and regs about hse ownership (and reading what members from here have posted)
I am wondering how was it possible to build and own this hse.
As many members from this forum know Cha-am and HuaHin they can confirm the amount of companys selling Farangs houses,and building houses for them.From Cha-am to HuaHin all you can see now is billboards advertising propertys for sale.
And regarding Farangs working in LOS
I personally Know 2 english,one finnish,One swedish,and an american,who all own and work in restuarants in Bangkwai.
Then we have the English guy in HuaHin who owns the meat company,openely selling and working,Importing from the uk.
Oh and the irish bar in Cha-am+many more i know off.
They are not all married to a Thai.
Did i mention Virgin car hire in Huahin? run by an English guy.Well ok that might be possible but ........
Is it just a matter of just doing what you want and keeping your head down?
Can you just get a thai you trust to have a hse built for you? Who in the goverment would know you just built a hse?
Am i looking at this in black and white with no shades of grey?
Im just saying what i have seen with my own eyes.
Can anyone enlighten me on these points?
I hope so best wishes Stevem
