Nor Sor Sam Gor (NS-3K) – Confirmed Certificate of Use

The Nor Sor Sam Gor, NS-3K or Confirmed Certificate of Use, is almost as good as a Chanote deed.  A black garuda appears on a Confirmed Certificate of Use.

Nor Sor Sam Gor (NS-3K) - Confirmed Certificate of UseA Confirmed Certificate of Use shows that the Land Department has confirmed and certified the owner’s right to the land.  Land parcels represented by these certificates have been unofficially surveyed, but not been officially surveyed, by the Land Department.  The unofficial survey has been correlated with master surveys and satellite photographs.  Owners may petition the Land Department to officially survey the land and upgrade the title to a Chanote deed.

Confirmed Certificates of Use are kept at the District Land Department.  The Certificate includes the total area of the parcel, the location information, survey information, and a sketch of the property.  The certificates are numbered and dated.  Full ownership and rental records are attached.

Landowners who own land titled with a Confirmed Certificate of Use only have one year to remove squatters before the squatters gain ownership through hostile possession. See more title types here. Note that this is not the same as the normal unconfirmed certificate of use.
