What happens if a condo building gets torn down?

+1 vote

What happens when I buy a condo in a building that gets torn down? I understand that part of the proceeds will be split among individual condo owners, but given the legal system in Thailand, I have concerns about potential foul play - e.g. the land owner sells at an artificially low price to a family member who then tears it down and builds a new apartment complex to sell the units.

Lots of good advice. But, like you said, what prevents foul play.
