The action follows several scandals that have highlighted pitfalls in investing in real estate on Phuket.
Phuket Governor Jamleran Tipayapongtada said yesterday after a private meeting with five ambassadors from Bangkok that he planned to meet officials next week and would set up an office to advise investors and buyers about property laws.
British ambassador Mark Kent said yesterday that problems were experienced not just on Phuket but all over Thailand.
''Buyers often do not fully understand the laws and as a result, there can be problems,'' the ambassador said.
While many legitimate sales go ahead without difficulties, the phrase ''buyer beware'' could have been written with property purchasers in Thailand in mind.
Buyers often wrongly assume there are safeguards, as there are in many Western countries, to prevent fraud and deception.
Recourse through the court system can take years.
The governor meets tomorrow with Phuket honorary consuls in the first of what's likely to be more regular forums.
Discussion on safety and security, jet-skis and taxi fares is likely to be renewed after the governor met yesterday with the British Ambassador, the German Ambassador, Peter Prugel, the Netherlands Ambassador, Karel Hartogh, the Irish Ambassador, Brendan Rogers, and the Canadian Ambassador, Philip Calvert.
Ambassadors were scheduled today to meet with more Phuket authorities, including managers at Phuket International Airport and the Royal Thai Navy.
