What is “Chanot”?
When approaching to purchase land or property, make sure that the type of the land ownership document is one of the following:
Nor Sor 3
Nor Sor 3 Gor
The land papers are issued by the government of Thailand and constitute a legal document.
Every prospective buyer must verify through the paper and through a local attorney that the seller is indeed the legal owner of the requested property and that the property is free of liens and mortgages.
The actual purchase transaction is done directly with the members of the local land office, who verify the details of the transaction and only then make the exchange.
A Chanot document with a red stamp at the top of the document is the highest level of land in Thailand – meaning that some parts have known and final boundaries, and no parts of them will be expropriated in the future.
In every sale of land there is a sales tax which is evenly divided between the buyer and the seller.
In Thailand, the size of the land is calculated by a local unit of measure, called: rai.
