In case of you cannot come to Thailand, you are able to proceed the ownership transfer remotely with a Power Of Attorney (POA), in order to have a representative transferring the title deed on your behalf (either a friend, Keller Henson team, the developer team or a lawyer).

This Power of Attorney is a special form given only by the Land Department, it must be notarized in your country of residence and the form shall not be older than 30 days from the date of signature. Depending on your country of residence, the POA for remote ownership transfer in Thailand can be required to be notarized at your nearest Thai Embassy/Consulate.
