Under Thai Law, the owner of a piece of land (immovable property) can grant the right of usufruct to another person, or many people, foreigners or not. The person receiving this right of usufruct is called usufructuary. The usufructuary can enjoy, use and possess the land for a limited period of time (maximum 30 years) or for his lifetime (even more than 30 years).

Following a Supreme Court judgment, a usufruct agreement must be registered to be valid and enforced to third parties.You can only register a usufruct contract on land having title deeds Nor Sor Sam or higher (like Chanote). Most land department in Isaan will refuse to register 2 rights on the same title deed. It means you can not register a usufruct over a mortgage or on top of a lease.

You must register a usufruct agreement at the local land department. The local land department is written on your title deed. When you register a usufruct, your name will appear on the back of the title deed written in Thai, if you are a foreigner or a Thai person. The land department do have contracts or forms but these are basic and our agreements will give you more protection at a low cost. They will be like an addendum to the usufruct you register at the land department at do worth the money you will pay for.

A usufruct is a real right. It means that it's attached to a thing, meaning the immovable property.
Even if the owner of the land die, or if the land is sold, the usufructuary will keep his right to stay on this piece of land. Usufruct agreements are a very easy way to protect a foreigner married to a Thai spouse, in case something happens to her.

This usufruct contract ends at when the usufructuary dies (if it's done for lifetime) or when the period of time is expired according to the contract.
