Gotta be Thai
If you are not Thai you can not buy property legally. A friend of mine is Burmese and she bought a shop but could not get the sale registered. She was renting the shop to someone else for a couple of years and called her to find out if she wanted to continue to rent. The lady said, "Don't you know that your shop was sold?" Apparently the previous owner, whose name the shop was still in, sold it to another person. My friend has no recourse except to have respected people in the community talk to the woman. Given my friends current financial situation (quite bad) this is awful news.
