Tabien Baan: Bangkok House Registration Document

Information on this useful document which demonstrates occupancy at a property...

The Tabien Baan, or House Registration Document, is issued by the municipality. It shows who lives at a property (it is not proof of property ownership). It can be issued to residents of Bangkok who:

  1. Buy a lease hold which is registered at the land office.
  2. Own land through a company or buy a condo.

A Tabien Baan is useful - and sometimes required - when applying for services. Either the occupant or landlord's document is accepted.
