Usufruct in Thailand

There is a legal mechanism that may allow a foreigner to secure guaranteed access to and use of a piece of land for his or her lifetime. The Thai legal term “Sit thi jap gin ta lord cbiwit” is a translation from Roman Law of the term “Usufruct ” (the right to use and enjoy the profits and advantages of something belonging to another as long as the property is not dam¬aged or altered in any way).
