The committee wants to have draf document acceptable to all Hua Hin residents. The Public Prosecutor has questioned some parts of the draft document Khun Somchai said that it will be very easy to correct it. He said that there are almost 3000 foreigners living in Hua Hin. Some of the foreigners run almost illegal property businesses selling house and leasing land plots without the correct documents and at the same time cheating other expats wanting to live in Hua Hin. To help buyers deal with these problems the Governor opened Hua Hin Foreigner Service Link Center. Officials at the center can offer advice how to purchase property without being cheated.
