A Title Deed is the only form of evidence that an individual actually owns the property or peace of land he is trying to sell. Title deeds are given only for areas of Thailand which have been surveyed.
Chanotte Ti Din is title deeds with land accurately surveyed. If you have a Chanotte Ti Din title deed, it gives you incontestable possession of the land. It is worth notice only approximately 15% of land is under this title.
Most titles around the country Are Nor Sor Sam or Nor Sam Kor. They are title deeds in as much as clear records of ownership are maintained, and they may be sold or leased.
The two titles mentioned above should give you ownership as good as a Chanotte.
IF YOU ARE OFFERED ANY OF THE THREE FOLLOWING TITLE DEEDS PLEASE BELIEVE US, THEY ARE NOT EVEN WORTH THE PAPER THEY ARE WRITTEN ON TO YOU.
The Sor Bor Kor is also a true title deed, accurately surveyed and pegged (like a Chanotte). But the big but is that they cannot be leased, sold or transferred.
Special attention needs to be given to the Sor Kor Nung, Tor Bor Tor Hoc and Tor Bor Tor Ha. They are squatter’s rights registered at the district office for a small fee. Unlike the Chanotte and the Nor Sor Sam, they cannot be legally sold, nor can you build on the land.
