Superficies basics

Superficies is sometimes called an above-ground-right creating separate ownership of the land and everything built or to be built upon the land. Without the registered right of superficies structures fixed to the land would otherwise be forming a body with the land and therefore legally would be owned as one corporeal object together with the land. The real property right 'superficies' (sections 1410-1416) is the legal instrument under Thai law to legally create separate ownership.
