Title deeds in Thailand and its legal documents.
Title deeds in Thailand
Chanote Ni. Sor.4 Jor (NS4J)
It is the best land title available. It is the only one that proves land ownership across demarcated and surveyed boundaries that are accurately traced by GPS.
Nor Sor Sam (NS3)
Also a legal title deed, but unlike an NS4J the boundaries are not scrutinized precisely. The act does not prove ownership but the right to own and use the land. They can be used for the transfer of land for sale and are subject to a 30 day notification period which must be published. They can be upgraded to NS4J title deeds
Nor Sor Sam Gor (NS3G)
Similar to NS3 but land boundaries are demarcated by aerial surveys and there is no 30 day notification period. They can be upgraded to NS4J.
