Some foreign husbands have been advised to rent their houses from their Thai wife (during their marriage) by making a 30 year Lease Contract and register it with the Land Office. The husband gave his wife money to buy the house and then he has to rent that house from her. It appears strange and does not make sense, but it may be the only way to protect the husband from an unexpected situation with his wife. To rent a house from his wife is not contrary to the law, it is enforceable. There are other ways for a Foreigner to protect his own interests when he marries a Thai woman. Eg; a Pre-nuptial Agreement / Loan Agreement between his wife and an assigned third person / Mortgage and other methods.
