Private Villas Koh Samui
We have spoken elsewhere on the website about the bureaucracy that can exist in Thailand when looking to buy property and land. It is true to say that the Thai legal system can be an awkward thing to negotiate for foreign buyers, but given that it has been done many times before it is by no means a major problem. There are still dangers that you can get the process wrong, but the key things to remember are that you need the correct advice, and therefore you should put some effort in to research the people you choose to deal with - whether they are real estate agents, developers, lawyers etc. It is worth doing a thorough background check to make sure they have the ability and experience to deal with your purchase or project. Once you know you are in safe hands you a free to make more considered and informed choices. It also means that whatever you decide to do or buy, the choice will be the correct one for you.
Villas can be completely private, set apart on their own land - they can also be private villas that can be contained in a purpose built site that is maintained by the developer or an independent Maintenance company. Either one may suit, but it always best to judge each one individually. Look at both options there may be projects that are appropriate for you when you had been previously looking for a completely private stand alone property.
